She needs his help.
He has nothing to lose.
Except his heart.
Known for his tasty dishes, and his even spicier personality, Executive Chef, Jax Carver's star is on the rise and he's quickly outgrowing the small town he's come to call home. He's never been the type to stay in one place for very long anyway. After all, settling down means opening up. And there's no way Jax is about to put his heart on the line. Not again.
Bria Sheridan had no intention on finding herself in a sleepy small town, especially since she needs to turn in a juicy photo assignment or risk losing her job completely. She needs to focus on the task at hand. What she doesn't need is a sexy chef who does nothing but push her buttons.
Except she does.
Jax might be the only one who can help Bria get the photo shoot of her career. And as long as they can keep their undeniable attraction for each other casual with no expectations, everything will work out. But that's a lot to gamble on, especially since neither of them counted on having any real feelings for each other. But when those feelings are put to the test, will their connection be strong enough to save them? Or will the chance for love be lost for good?
