We’re gonna have to blame this book on Hilary Duff. Yes. You read that right. This book is Hilary Duff’s fault. Let me tell you why.
I was innocently returning from a trip to the grocery store when a song started playing from my Spotify account. Typically, I download an entire album and get to know it on shuffle amongst the other songs I already know and love. This is the way I met her song, “Night Like This.”
I wasn’t expecting to react to it the way I did. I mean, I could feel Emerson in my head, sitting next to Maddox and nervously looking at the city skyline. And that’s where she stayed in my head until October 31st, 2015…when I decided to stop telling her to shut the hell up and wait her turn.


So many things can happen to a person on a Central Park bench.

For Emerson Kingsley, falling in love happened, despite her broken monster of a heart.

Emerson knows more about listening than she does about love, whether it’s listening to artists as a music producer or listening to stories as she people watches.

Months of watching Maddox Bailey from a park bench are to blame for her infatuation. In her mind, the moment they meet will be spectacular if she ever finds the nerve to speak to him.

But when the two share an awkward cab ride, she realizes that maybe fantasies are meant to stay that way.

The only problem is, now that they’ve met, he keeps popping up in her life. Each time he does, Emerson finds the real-life Maddox to be better than anything she could’ve dreamed—sexy, passionate, and sweeter than his chocolate brown eyes.

A woman in love with possibilities meets a man determined to make them happen.
