Elle resigned herself to being the responsible one. She moved her and her recovering dad out of the city to a small town. Her new job keeps his medical bills at bay, and caring for her dad soaks up her free time. But she’s never had a social life anyway.
It’s been just the two of them for so long she doesn’t know any different.
After returning home from the army, Dillon jumps into business with four of his cousins. He’s the oldest and the unofficial leader of the farm and ranch operation. But it’s lonely at the top. At the end of the day, he comes home to an empty house, memories, and the promise made to his dad before he died.
It’s time to follow through on that promise and make an appointment with the new counselor in town.
By doing that Dillon ruins his chances with the smartest and most gorgeous woman he’s ever met just by walking into her office. He’d rather get to know her instead of talking about his problems. She’d rather transfer him to a colleague and never see him again.
Dillon gave up on therapy, but he’s not giving up on the chemistry he felt for that one hour he had with Elle. Just Elle’s luck. Dillon’s handsome, charming, and persistent. But she’s walked this road with her dependent dad. If Dillon can’t face his demons, not even she can help him, and she won’t stick around to watch.
First in a Series
Dillon doesn’t think he has a problem but to honour his father’s dying wish he commits to seeing a counsellor but only one who is new to town and doesn’t know him personally. The only trouble is that the moment he sees Elle he is interested in her as a woman. It would be unprofessional for Elle to get involved with Dillon and hazardous to her heart to fall for a man intent on denying his alcohol problem. An interesting love story, mixed with strong family ties plus the mystery of an individual trying to destroy Dillon’s life. HFN ending.
