“When you love someone, you want to share everything you love with them.”
Ashton Hall has had a lot go wrong in her life in the past few months. Including letting her best friend convince her to go out to a bar, dressed to kill, looking to get over her ex where she meets the most amazing guy, who subsequently disappears. And then shows up the next day at her house. To help her rehab her deceased grandmother’s Bed and Breakfast on the Charleston coast. She’ll suck it up and deal with his presence, but keep it professional. Guys cheat. And lie. And so a working relationship is all they’ll have. To save her inheritance. Even if being around him causes her heart, and other parts, to flutter.
Jax Roland is a serial bachelor. He’s not afraid of commitment. He’s absolutely committed to getting his home-improvement YouTube show picked up by the networks. But a long-term relationship? Not in his plans. So of course he’s bummed when his plans for a night with the beauty he spotted across the bar go awry. But finding out she’s the owner of the house for the project that he’s hoping will be his ticket to the big time? He can’t quite decide if that’s fate, or a problem. It might be the latter when her brother also seeks his services, from a development perspective.
Will Ash be able to let down her guard and let Jax in? Will Jax be able to be honest with Ash and get past his fear of relationships? There are definitely bumps in the road for this couple, but Tia Louise and Ilsa Madden-Mills provide you with romance, and comedy, a plot low on angst and high on meddling old widows, cursing macaws, and lots of hot, sexy times.
