Even when her hair salon goes under and she’s on the brink of breaking, Regan Burke keeps her “I’m just fine” attitude. She’s had a tough life, coping with a difficult family and keeping her act together . . . barely. Right now, she just needs a job, any job, so she can pay her mother’s medical bills. It’s the exact wrong time for Carter Scott to come into her life—and to be so damn sexy, so distracting, and so determined to get close.
Carter isn’t looking for anything serious—his heart belongs to the kids who depend on his pediatric practice—but something about Regan makes him reconsider. Maybe it’s the scars she hides so well, the secrets she can’t share. Carter knows all about that kind of pain, and he wants to help. But offering Regan a job in his office only makes things worse, even if their chemistry is off the charts. Lucky for them both, Carter isn’t about to let go of love without a fight.
Reviewed by Erycka:
“…loving someone was no guarantee they would ever love you back.”
Regan loses what feels like everything. Her mother is ill, her business closed because her landlord decided to sell the building, and the bills are mounting. She’s in a bad place right now and the last thing she wants/needs is to fixed up. But her friend Jayne thinks differently. It is NYE and Jayne insisted Regan come to her and Nick’s party. She was hoping to call late in the evening and lie about how she wasn’t finished packing. What Regan didn’t bargain for, was for Carter to show up at the salon to make sure everything was packed and ready so, she couldn’t make any excuses. She also didn’t expect her lady parts to come alive upon seeing him again after a year.
Carter is totally swoon worthy, but he has a past that keeps him from committing. Normally that would be a problem, but for Regan, it is not. At least that’s what us the reader is lead to believe…
This book is full of emotion. You will laugh, you may cry, and you may even want to throw your ereader. There are difficulties to this story which play out well. The characters come alive from page 1.
