Drew Ashby has no time—for anything. As a recently-divorced single mother, her focus is on finding a job, caring for her daughter, and rebuilding some semblance of a life after hers was wrecked.
When Drew lands a job at Bird’s Eye, sparks don’t immediately fly. She can't deny the fact that her boss is a delicious specimen of a man. His tattoo-covered skin might even drive her wild, but his brooding presence and set jaw make him hard to read.
That is, until he drops the bad boy persona and starts making moves on her—kind and caring gestures she doesn't expect.
Things turn hot, and just when Drew thinks everything is finally going right, life does what it does best: It throws her a curveball from her past.
Bird’s Eye might not be the family Drew envisioned for herself, but ideals can change in a heartbeat. There’s no doubt Hawk is the man she wants, but can he step up and be the man she needs?
Lucas Kane has only ever been in love once. Disloyalty followed soon after and he wants no part of "a future" with anyone ever again.

Those same women asked no questions when it came time to say goodbye. So he carries on like this—faking a married life and fooling around.
A chance encounter brings the two together and while it sounds like a match made in heaven, both are leery, with cynical hearts. What happens when two people hell bent on avoiding love find themselves falling? How many lies have they told? Will the truth set them free, or rip them apart?

Enter Jensen Reed, her sister's friend's brother. Confusing, yeah. It's even more confusing to Harper when he's somehow volunteered to be her date to the wedding.
The city boy lives his life far, far away from the farm that Harper calls home. The only one she's ever known. To make things even more complicated, she's recently decided to dip her toes in the cesspool of modern dating. And, he agrees to help her get back on the saddle, so to speak.
Neither of them exactly thought it'd be his saddle she'd choose to mount. He's risk-free in so many ways--a traveler by profession and a carefree wanderer by design. Oh, not to mention, he's hot as hell.
But after the wedding--when serious decisions need to be made--Harper must decide: Can she give love one more chance?

With an attraction so palpable, even the inexperienced and gun-shy Lyla can't resist—especially when lured with poetic, seductive notes from the unexpected southern charmer.

Declan Walsh parades different women in and out of his apartment, day and night. After declining his invitation years ago, Cora isn't afraid to tell him exactly what she thinks of him--which isn't much.
He doesn't mind, though. He lives his life the way he wants and makes no apologies for it. Sure, he's tall--and extremely hot--but she won't let that fool her. She has no time for his antics.
That is, until her perceptions of him begin to unravel. Soon, they find themselves hating each other a little less--and making out a little more.
But when a misunderstanding threatens to rip them apart, both must decide: Is love worth taking a chance?
