Cami Broussard has her future all figured out. She'll finish her senior year of high school, then go to work full-time as an apprentice chef in her father's French restaurant, alongside her boyfriend, Luke. But then twenty-year-old ex-Marine Julian Wyatt comes to live with Cami's family while recovering from serious injuries. And suddenly Cami finds herself questioning everything she thought she wanted.
Julian's all attitude, challenges and intense green-brown eyes. But beneath that abrasive exterior is a man who just might be as lost as Cami's starting to feel. And Cami can't stop thinking about him. Talking to him. Wanting to kiss him. He's got her seriously stirred up. Her senior year has just gotten a lot more complicated…
Character Spotlight: Julian Wyatt
CHARACTER: Julian Wyatt
HEIGHT: 6’ 0”
PARENTS: Father: U.S. Marine Sam Wyatt, died in a Jeep accident in Somalia when Julian was four.
Mother: Angela Wyatt, a researcher at a think tank in Washington, died from breast cancer when Julian was nine.
CHILDHOOD: Raised by his aunt Estella after his mother’s death. Considers her son, his cousin Brandon, to be like an older brother. Got in a fair amount of trouble after his mom died, but then turned to sports as an outlet and his situation improved. Top grades in high school and top scores on SAT, but he decided to be a U.S. Marine like his father and grandfather.
MILITARY BACKGROUND: Enlisted as a U.S. Marine and was sent to Afghanistan, where he was caught in an IED explosion that killed three men in his unit and caused him lose his right leg below the knee. Returns to the U.S. to recover with his aunt, her new husband, and her annoyingly-pretty step-daughter in their house in Vermont.
HOBBIES: All sports particularly basketball, watching old movies, reading newspapers, political magazines and books by Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy, exercising in the gym.
FAVORITE FOODS: Steak, apple pie, anything made by Cami Broussard, especially the soups she brings him after work. Then later, for secret reasons, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
