Women haven't been hired to work in my bar for a reason: they're too tempting and too distracting - too much of a liability - even if they are good for business....
That's why I shocked myself by hiring Avery Cole. She's young, carefree, and happy - a beautiful distraction. When she's around, the devastation of my past gets buried under layers of lust and desire...hints of a life I once lived but have completely given up on. I've already had my love and now that's gone; there's no need to try again. Even if love is staring me right in the face with a pair of deep brown eyes and no expectations.
What can I say about Shaw O'Sullivan? He's rude, abrasive, sexy - and my boss. He's also broken in ways I would never have seen if I hadn't been looking. Which means he should be off limits; my heart and body cannot handle his baggage. I'm on a quest to find myself, and Shaw O'Sullivan will only get in my way and drag me down.
Where I'm light, he's dark. We don't mix and neither of us is looking for love, so what happens when it finds us anyway?
