My Thoughts: Whoa. I had seen this book on goodreads, one of my friends were reading it. So I knew I had to read it. I loved the description. We are introduced to Sabrina and we get to know her as a person, we find out why she is the way she is (scared of relationships) and why she keeps herself shut down from everyone. We than meet Tucker, who is in love with Sweetpea (aka Sabrina). The chemistry is there from the get go, even though she does not know he knows that he is talking to her (Sabrina). Sound confusing? It really isn't when you begin the story. It all comes together nicely. This story is beautiful and romantic. I really enjoyed both of them. Tucker than hires Sabrina to find Sweetpea. Makes it kind of hard right? And, than we begin to get to know the whole backstory of Sabrina, not only is she afraid of relationships but we know why she does not want to tell Tucker she is sweatpea. Mostly she is scared, but why you ask??? Will the two overcome their obstacles and get together? Or will they live the rest of their life wanting each other??? You must read the book to find out! Goodreads says it is classified as christian lit. Yes, there are a few references to God BUT for all of you who aren't religious, its still a good book anyway! It is a beautiful story. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to everyone!!! I love Tucker and Sabrina together.
Overall: A really nice love story! The sparks fly between Sabrina and Tucker, and I'm glad I was there to watch them! Great Story!
Cover: I love the cover. It fits the book perfectly! She has such a pretty dress on and the guy in the background, who I assume is Tucker is awesome. I think it is very mysterious and has a really good vibe about it.

At first this book reminded me of the movie, Youâ€™ve Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Itâ€™s similar because it talks about an online relationship but brings in so many more twists and turnsâ€”itâ€™s great!
Denise Hunter has a note to her readers, it says, â€śIâ€™m so thankful to have a God who seeks me out, one who persistently pursues meâ€”despite my efforts to hide and build wallsâ€”and lavishes love on me like Iâ€™m his only child.â€ť What a insight into this creative story.
Sabrina is a waitress and Tucker is a customer at her cafĂ©. Sabrina knows Tucker really well under the identity of Harbormaster. Tucker knows Sabrina by her computer name Sweet Pea. Neither of them realizes that they know the others secret identity. The only live conversation they have is Tucker asking for breakfast and coffee and Sabrina bringing it to him.
Sabrina has been hurt deeply and wants to keep the relationship at a safe distanceâ€”online safe. An internet relationship is easy, she could be accepted at face value; her opinions mattered and she could talk to her friend anytime. All was right with the world until Tucker wanted to meet her face to face. It had been a year and he wanted to take their on-line relationship to the next level.
Denise grabbed my attention from the very beginning and did not disappoint. With every page the plot thickened. I had no idea how this thing could end. Denise is a master at weaving a complicated but simple story with very colorful characters, she makes you root for and have compassion for them. Itâ€™s a delightful, fun, soul searching, redeeming love storyâ€”you wonâ€™t soon forget.
