The Story:
In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along… Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause.

But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer.
