Book Information:

Margot Roberts has loved Landon Bishop for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, so has the rest of her family, which has made it impossible for her to break out of the friend zone.

Until now.

Margot

He wasn’t just the best man at my brother’s wedding.

He was the best man, period.

I knew it deep in my bones the first day I met him.

Well, maybe not the first day. I was only six, after all, and he was just a boy.

But even then, his presence made me feel both firmly grounded and like I was walking on air.

It was a curious feeling to have, especially as a kid.

As I got older, my cravings for his company intensified, and I began aching not only for his attention, but for his touch.

Too bad I could never tell if he felt the same.

There was only one thing I knew for sure, which was that his loyalty to my brother knew no bounds. And for good reason.

But I didn’t care about that. Not like I cared about him.

Because I loved Landon Bishop at first sight…long before he became my brother’s best friend.

It was a curious feeling to have, especially as a kid.

As I got older, my cravings for his company intensified, and I began aching not only for his attention, but for his touch.

Unfortunately, I didn’t know if he felt the same. I wanted to believe he did (based on our too-few stolen moments and the conversations I’d overheard him having with my brother through the vent in my bedroom wall).

But there was only one thing I knew for sure, which was that his loyalty to my brother knew no bounds.

And for good reason.

But I didn’t care about that. Not like I cared about him.

– Margot –

He was beaming as he stood before the priest, his eyes fixed on Kelsey like he was seeing her for the first time and knew life would never be the same.

I wondered how similar his expression must’ve looked the first time he saw her at that crowded frat party his sophomore year of college. Had he known then that his life would be changed forever?

Had he known then that he would be standing here five years later, surrounded by his friends and family as they waited with bated breath for that one moment, that moment when we’d get to hear the sincerity in the happy couple’s voices as they said I do?

He said he did. He said he knew the second he saw her that she was the woman for him. He said that, in that moment, everything else faded away, and he came to believe with a certainty he hadn’t known before that his future might be brighter than he’d ever thought possible.

Naturally, I couldn’t have been more delighted for him. He was my brother, after all. His happiness had been tied up in my own for as long as I could remember, and while I knew his marriage might alter the dynamic between us, that perpetual reality seemed unlikely to change.

Then again, our whole family’s happiness was wrapped up in his. I’m not exactly sure why. I suppose it was because Matt’s personality was so big and intense that you couldn’t help but feel what he was feeling.

As a kid, his joy could be felt anywhere in the house, and the same went for his frequent teenage angst. I didn’t know if his infectiousness was because he was a guy or the eldest or simply because he burned more intensely than most people, but it wasn’t the same for me.

I always kept my feelings more private, divulging them rarely and with great discomfort. Sometimes I wondered if this was because my parents were quite traditional, because my mom was similarly reserved, or if it was merely a biological personality quirk.

But just because I was a private person didn’t mean I didn’t crave the same things Matt did. And as much as I hated to be jealous of him on the most important day of his life to date, I couldn’t help it.

I wanted a big, bold, all-consuming love that lifted me when I was down and lifted me even higher when I was up. I wanted the kind of love I’d read about in books, the kind that’s so powerful it infects you. The kind that spreads through every nook and cranny of your whole body until you know you love someone not just with your heart and eyes, but with your brain and hands and toes.

I wanted that life-affirming, Disney kind of love. The kind that made men out of beasts and princesses out of humble maidens.

It wasn’t the wedding I envied. I didn’t care if I ever wore a fancy white dress or had a chance to hold the attention of an entire room full of people. That didn’t interest me. To be honest, there was only one person whose attention I wanted, whose attention made me feel seen, important, and loved…

And that person was Landon Bishop, my brother’s best friend.

I’d slipped my heart in his pocket years ago. Unfortunately, I was still waiting for him to notice. Sometimes I suspected he already had, though, since I often struggled to play it cool in his company.

But by the time I figured out that it wasn’t only his attention that I wanted, he was on his way to becoming a gentleman, and that’s exactly how he always acted…much to my disappointment.
