Fourth try's the charm . . . or is it?
The first guy Blaine ever confessed her feelings to dismissed her. The second made her friendless. The third, a viral internet sensation.
And Blaine is praying the fourth will be different.
After two years of pining for the aloof and secretly hilarious IT guy at work, roller-derby-warrior Blaine creates a master plan: after Lysander returns from his transfer in California, she's going to spill everything. And why not? She's got a killer undercut, thighs of steel, and shares his love for superheroes. In her book, they're a match made in heaven.
Lysander has enough self-esteem to fill a thimble and has always struggled with his place in the world. When his father has a health scare, Lysander takes charge of his own, and consequentially loses fifty pounds. Suddenly the people around him think he's worth his space-especially the women. And when Lysander fishes the literally shallow waters of dating and returns with a girl on his arm, Blaine fears she may have lost her chance with him entirely.
Sometimes a surprise baby can lead to unexpected happy endings.***It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming:"I'm pregnant."Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn't need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him.Career-focused Gilly never imagined she'd be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she's been looking for has been in her bed all along.If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park...right?***Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. This is the story of the brother from another mother, Ezra Baker, and the one he never saw coming.
Without her, I was better off.
I knew it the second she walked away and realized how much happier I was. Knew it the day I interrupted her wedding reception to show her what she was missing and locked eyes with someone I hadn't seen in years.
Those eyes. Her smile. Everything about her turned something around inside me that had been quiet for years.
But I'm not the only one who noticed. How do I, a grease monkey, compare to what a Nashville star has to offer?
Easy. Because without her, none of what I've taken years to build matters. Now I get to prove it to her.
Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.
Julian was the boy next door. My brother's best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start. Until everything changed.
Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother's death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be.
Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn't the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I'd never noticed.
Not on another person. Not on another man. Not until him.
