Too bad he’s my boss.
And we have one rule at The Slay Squad. Never date on the job. Ever.
Can I run his social media without falling for the billionaire surfer hottie? Probably, because he doesn’t want me there anyway. He thinks he can do everything himself.
It’s my job to prove him wrong.
But when my rental is cancelled and I end up in his guesthouse, the line between business and pleasure blurs and I’m not so certain I want to follow the rules anymore. Besides, rules were made to be broken, right?
My year is off to a terrible start. Fired from my job and dumped by my boss-boyfriend at the same time (lesson learned the hard way, don’t even start), I’m forced to adopt the ‘New Year, New You’ mantra whether I want to or not. The only silver lining is a rundown old house my estranged aunt left to me in Starlight Bay, Massachusetts.
That is, until I run head-on—literally—into Jackson Montgomery, local hometown superstar and the best contractor in town. He offers to help with renovations so I can rent it as a side hustle once I find a job and move back to Boston. Unfortunately, he does not offer to date me, which is a crying shame because he’s exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for.
I’ve never made a New Year’s resolution until this year. Why? Because I think they’re stupid and 99.9% of people break them within six weeks. But after my girlfriend cheated on me with my (ex-) best friend, I knew I had to do it. Give up dating for at least a year, but maybe the rest of adulthood.
What I hadn’t counted on was meeting Harper, a perky city girl just begging to be kissed. Fixing up her late aunt’s house was proving to be a bigger job than I could handle in the feelings department and I didn’t like it one little bit. I just needed to get her fixer-upper fixed so she could get out of Starlight Bay before something happened I couldn’t repair with a hammer and some nails.
Sure, I used to be a pro NFL baller, but now I’m perfectly content with a quiet life in my small hometown of Peachtree Grove, Georgia.
That is until Bree, a beautiful blonde dating expert, gets tackled at my Pee Wee football practice, knocking me off my game. I swore I’d never get involved again after my messy divorce left me reeling, but one date with Bree and I’m dropping all my hesitations—along with my jersey.
Now she has me rethinking my plays.
But will the tabloids, my ex, and Bree’s complicated past keep us in the friendzone?
So yeah, dating isn’t on my radar.
Until I meet my son’s incredibly beautiful, but way too young for me swim instructor, Lana. She’s the ray of sunshine I didn’t know I needed and suddenly, I find myself thinking about her all the time.
When my nanny bails on the Fourth of July, Lana steps in to help me out. Sparks fly between us and for the first time, I can see the possibility of a brighter future. For me and my son.
But I shouldn’t get involved.
She’s too young, too beautiful, too bright—and I’ve already been burned once before. My number one priority is protecting my son.
Besides, everyone knows you can’t hold onto sunshine.
Christmas. The least wonderful time of the year. I counteract the eggnog and faux holiday cheer with an annual vacation and this year I’m heading to Cayman with my bestie. Or so I think. When I find out she’s not coming, I nearly lose my tinsel. To make matters worse, she’s invited the only person who could ruin my trip to paradise: Dare Walsh, the one guy I’ve ever loved and the only guy to break my heart. And now I’m stuck with him, on an island, for an entire freaking week. Ho, ho, no…
Most people get Twelve Days of Christmas, but I’ll settle for the lucky seven I’ve been gifted if it means a chance to win Noel back. She’s the elusive ‘One Who Got Away,’ and I can’t believe I have a shot at redemption. A lot has changed in a decade, but she’s still as gorgeous as ever and I’m determined to win back her love. It’s a Christmas miracle and I’m not going to let her slip away twice.
