She’s a tomboy. He’s the boy next door.
With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she’s more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.
Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there’s a secret Charlie’s keeping that even he hasn’t figured out—she’s fallen for him.
She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.

Such a cute boy-next-door story! The main character is very much a tomboy with three older brothers and a single dad. I loved the sibling relationships and all their wrestling and bantering. It was fun to watch Charlie try to navigate the “girl” world that is so unfamiliar to her. And then there were the fence chats… 🙂 I didn’t realize at first that this was tied in just a little with characters from “The Distance Between Us” (which I also loved). And I love that I can pass this along to my daughters as well!
