The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

She turned and started through the hedge, breathing fast. He'd kissed her! She still couldn't believe it. Though she intended to march straight to her door, making sure he realized how adamant she'd been about not wanting it to happen again, she snuck a peek over her shoulder and was mortified to realize he'd seen her. He raised a hand in a relaxed wave. ~ The Choice, page 139 ~

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life ~ boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his close buddies ~ he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the attractive redhead seems to have a grudge against him ... and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Still, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither of them could have foreseen.

I needed a good story to get lost in and this fit the bill. Just a nice love story with a slight twist towards the end. It was a fast, easy read and I breezed through it. After being disappointed with The Guardian I thoroughly enjoyed The Choice.
