What else can go wrong? Or is everything finally going right?

After catching her fiancé lip-locked with the wedding planner an hour before their vows, Hailey Miller hikes up her wedding dress and runs. The last person she expects to chase her down is her ex’s sexy but aloof business partner who’s kept her at arm’s length for years. He offers her a lifeline, but his help comes with a catch. Does she dare say yes?

Jace Hartman doesn’t believe in love. And he doesn’t believe in giving up. He won’t let his company’s event planner walk away from their biggest launch—even if she has a broken heart. Business comes first, so he makes Hailey an offer she can’t refuse. But it’s her counter offer that has him worried. She needs a place to live for the month, and he has an extra bedroom.

Jace has spent the past few years trying his best to bury his attraction to Hailey. Now she’s everywhere and making him forget all the reasons he should never mix business and pleasure.

This is a new-to-me author, and as far as I can tell this is her first traditionally published work. I really enjoyed her writing style and found her characters to have great chemistry. This story kept me engaged and turning the pages, that’s for sure.

In all honesty, I didn’t realize this was a debut novel until I looked her up after I read this story. I wanted to see what kind of back library she had since I would be interested in reading more. The story flowed seamlessly. Hailey and Jace were both fleshed out well and had me fully rooting for them from the start.

There was a time or two that the timeline didn’t make sense to me, but no more often than in other books I read. It’s one of those things I always pick out (unintentionally) on my reading.

Not only was the writing on point and the connection between the characters delightful, this was also a forced proximity and enemies to lovers story. In other words, a whole lot of fun.

I can’t wait to read more from this author. I see there is another book in this series coming out in a few months and I’m looking forward to that.

4.5 stars
