Book for teenage girls / young adults - Main character who is a teenage girl falls in love with an older guy who is a bachelor and a single father?

I remember reading this book a very long time ago - It was aimed for adolescent / teenage girls and I was around the same age when I came across it in my school library. I remember some details:

The main character is a teenage girl (called Imogen?). She lives with her family and one or two brothers. One day, she gets a new neighbor - a young man in his mid-twenties (or so) with his toddler son. He is a bachelor and a single father. I remember that the book pointed out he wore a gold necklace on his "bronze neck" (or some such).

She starts to fall in love with him inspite of the age-difference. She starts to visit regularly. And I think there is a time when she is over (offers to babysit, can't remember the exact reason), and he is getting ready to go on a blind date.

There is also a time in the book where she has to go to the mall and it's raining hard. Her brother drives her and tries to drop her as close as he can to the mall but she decides to walk it down.

I think eventually the story ends with the girl realizing that despite the attraction she feels for him, she figures out that she is not able to relate to his experiences because he is older, and she decides to go back to being a teenager (or some such)

I have been looking for this book for almost 15 years now. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
