Brooke Rossi knows how to stay in control.
After all, finding herself a single mother to twins after her ‘allergic to responsibility’ ex-boyfriend left town has kinda set the bar for whatever might come her way. Except the day-to-day realities of single motherhood has her juggling in a way that she couldn’t anticipate, which is why she’s one sleepless night away from a padded cell.
Her unexpected help comes in the form of Michael Whitfield, unrepentant flirt and alleged manwhore. Michael isn’t allergic to responsibility, but he does have a healthy aversion to commitment, until his relationship with Brooke. Their friendship is easy, until it’s not. They learn to walk a tight rope of restraint, choosing not to act on their attraction out of respect for the friendship they’ve built.
One scorching, clothes-free visit past the boundaries they put in place, and Brooke finds herself facing the most uncontrollable situation of all: risking her heart to a man who’s never had to take care of one before.
Michael: the player; the man whore; the no-commitment guy.
Brooke: the single mom; the independent woman
What do you get when you mix the two? One heck of a story!!!
Brooke is the mom of twins and doing everything on her own. She has her sister Julia to help her but she has basically been on her own with her kids since day one. When she needs to last minute babysitter, Brooke is expecting Julia to show up, not Michael, a family friend who has quite a reputation.
Michael knows what it is like to grow up with a single mom, so when he hears Brooke needs a babysitter, he volunteers. What he doesn’t realize is that him volunteering is going to set off a chain of events that will change everything.
When Michael starts helping Brooke build an in-home salon so she can work from home, their relationship starts to change. They are both attracted to each other, anyone with eyes can see that. So they set rules that will help them keep their distance from each other and stay just friends.
Can they be around each other every day without feelings developing?
Can Brooke let go of her controlling ways and ask her help when it is needed?
Can Michael get over his commitment issues?
What happens when there is a misunderstanding that could ruin everything?
Can they survive it or will it tear them apart?
I loved Michael and Brooke’s story.
Michael has a huge heart even though he tries to hide it. He will do anything for anyone and is very protective over those he cares about.
Brooke is such a strong woman. Raising two kids on her own is tough but she is doing it and kicking butt at it.
Michael and Brooke have such a fun, flirty story. I really enjoyed it.
There were times when I laughed and times when I wanted to cry. I love an author who can tap into multiple emotions in one book.
Great job Karla!!
Now I can’t wait till Tristan’s book…….P.S…..I’m mad we have to wait so long!!!!!!
