Peter “Pete” Gallagher:
Andrew: Adele’s Dad, Shanti: Adele’s Stepmother, Adele’s best friend, starts with an M
Adele has been in love with Pete since she was sixteen. The problem is Pete is around thirteen years older than her. The bigger problem is Pete lovers her too. She’s his best friend, his “person” and it is ruined once Adele turns eighteen and decides she is old enough. A clumsy and thwarted attempt at seduction separates them for seven years. Now Adele’s dad, who is also Pete’s business partner, is getting married and Adele is forced into Pete’s home and back into his heart.
Their reunion was rough, funny and touching. I feel like I could tell Pete loved Adele throughout the book but tried really hard to do what is “right”. (view spoiler)
