About this ebook

Ethan Riggs is in love with a woman he can’t have, and it’s driving him out of his mind.

She’s his best friend’s secret crush and his adopted family’s adored baby sister, which locks her in the look-but-don’t-touch category. It was easy to deny his attraction while she was away at veterinary school. But now that she’s back, the temptation’s growing stronger, and a man can only resist for so long before he finally claims what he wants. 

Doctor Louise Phillips doesn’t have time for a man. Between her work at the animal hospital and helping her sister on the family farm, she barely has time for sleep. But when a rare night out turns into an evening in the slammer, it’s Ethan she calls for help. He’s a great guy—and seriously hot—but he’s never shown any interest in her beyond friendship. But now that he’s agreed to help her beat the charges, working closely with him is giving her ideas. Sexy, sweaty ideas. 

But Ethan has secrets buried deep in his past, and he hates the thought of Louise looking at him with pity—or worse, disappointment. Unfortunately, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out when they’re least expected. When Louise learns the truth, will she stand by her man or kick him to the curb?

Reading these books, it's like a movie going in my head. The details are so vivid. I can hardly put the book down. I enjoy the surrounding of the characters, the way everything flows together and make you feel everything the charaters do.Truly a must read for those who are looking for something you can get into and enjoy the journeys of the storyline.

I totally enjoyed this funny book. The barbs may perhaps reflect the witticisms of the author.
