Quick & Dirty summary: Daisy Grace has had in love with her best friend’s brother since she was little, but Mark never noticed her. When Mark started dating Daisy’s friend Janey, she put her school-girl crush aside to be happy for her friend. When Janey dies in a freak accident, Mark slips into a depression that no one can touch, not even his family. But Daisy is determined to reach Mark, no matter what it takes, even if it means loosing her heart again.
This is a short, sweet read. Daisy and Mark are honest, relatively-drama free people who are in an extreme situation. Mark is paralyzed with guilt over Janey’s death and he can’t move forward. Daisy wants to see her friend happy, even if that means he moves on from Janey with someone else. So the emotion from each character seems honest and authentic.
I don’t want to give anything in the novella away, and since it’s a short book, there’s not a lot for me to say that wouldn’t spoil it in some way. But I found Mark to be sweet and Daisy to be strong and courageous. Plus, I love that Daisy in an electrician. I love a woman who knows her way around tools.
My only negative is that since this is the first book in a new series, there isn’t enough interaction with secondary characters to make the next books interesting. I’m not invested in Daisy’s brothers or cousins, so I’m not anxious for the next book to be released. The flip side of that, though, is this reads as a complete standalone. If you never read another book in the series, you’ll still finish this one satisfied.
Is it worth buying? (Kindle $2.99)
This book is a little over a hundred pages, so I’m not sure I’d recommend buying it at $3. But, if you had Kindle Unlimited it’s free, so I’d recommend picking it up then. If you don’t have KU, check your local library for a sweet read.

Another childhood crush to lovers book is Truth or Beard by Penny Reid. It’s the first book in her Winston Brother’s series, and since she’s set to release the fourth book in the series on August 01, 2017, you might as well start reading now so you’ll be caught up by release date. It’s a great, funny, smart read.
Daisy Grace has loved Mark Cooper, her best friend’s older brother, for as long as she can remember. But Daisy has never been more than his little sister’s best friend to Mark. She was always around, but not someone he took notice off. Then he started dating and eventually became engaged with Janey, who was older and beautiful. Daisy set out to put him out of her heart and wished him well.
Then a horrible and freak accident took Janey away from Mark and he lost himself in grief and guilt. He secluded himself from all family and friends and suffered alone. He pushed away anyone that tried to reach out and help him. He felt he deserved to suffer and be alone.
I loved both Daisy and Mark. Daisy was so likeable. She was determined to help those she cares about at all cost. Once she made up her mind, she was a force to be reckoned with. She was kind, loyal and so good-natured. Mark broke my heart. He suffered from so much guilt and heartache, but he was such good man who was caring and loving (when he allowed himself).
When Daisy’s best friend, and Mark’s younger sister, wedding date draws near, Daisy reaches out to Mark to get him to attend the wedding. Mark wants nothing to do with the wedding, but one look at him and Daisy knows he desperately needs someone in his corner. She sets out to help him. But will spending so much time with Mark be detrimental to her heart?
This was such a heart-wrenching story about loss, grief and finally hope and second chances. Daisy and Mark were so sweet together. They had obstacles to face, and Mark struggled with so much guilt, but coming together sometimes means letting go.
