This was a spicy romance with some moments of laughter, seriousness, and of course, heat! The southern setting made this feel intimate in a small-town setting. The characters are easy to fall in love with. They have great personalities and really stand out within the story.
I found myself utterly enthralled with this story! I loved the plot, the setting, the characters, and the romance. It was all-around just a fun and enjoyable story!
Where to Find This Book:
Isla Moore debuts a delicious small-town series about taking risks, second chances, and trusting your heart to lead the way.
The rule was they couldn’t fall in love.
But rules are made to be broken.
Empty-nester Alison English is ready to sell her too-large house and start the second part of her life. The only way that’s possible is to dust off her past author skills and accept the offer– and the unseemly amount of money –to ghost write a sizzling scorcher of a romance book. One problem: widowed for ten years, forty-something Alison isn’t sure she even remembers how to flirt, much less sizzle or scorch… Everything still goes in the same places though, right? All she needs is practice. And she knows just who to ask for help.
Will Fournier is thirty-one going on fifty. Single parenting a special-needs six-year-old and running a construction business doesn’t leave much time for socializing. Dating is out. He won’t risk someone breaking his daughter’s heart when the relationship inevitably falls apart. What he needs is an arrangement with a woman isn’t looking to get married or even go out on the town. A woman who will settle for convenient, no strings attached sex. In a perfect world, this fantasy woman would look like Alison, whose kitchen he’s been tearing apart. But someone as sexy and classy as her wouldn’t be interested in friends with benefits.
Even with strict rules set in place, spending everyday together brings Will and Alison much closer than in just the bedroom. And when emotions get involved, who will be the first to fall?
