A Diamond Creek, Alaska Novel
A swoon-worthy frenemies to lovers romance from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix!
Friends with benefits? How about enemies with benefits?
Jared Winters is annoying, uptight, arrogant, and way too handsome.
Susie Hammond wants nothing to do with Jared. Nothing at all. Small problem: she can’t stop thinking about him. Or about the kiss-that-never-happened. Except it did. And it was H-O-T. So hot, she can’t forget it no matter how hard she tries.
Susie also has a secret, and the last man she wants to find out is Jared. Le sigh.
Susie is a hurricane force—beautiful, brash, funny, and bossy. She’s the living, breathing example of the kind of woman Jared wants nothing to do with. He’s not interested in relationships—too messy and complicated.
Susie takes complicated to new levels. Jared never meant to kiss her. He’d like to forget that freaking kiss. Except he can’t. Not at all. In fact, he keeps kissing her. And then he gets a glimpse of the vulnerability under the surface and can’t help but want to be everything Susie needs.
The spark between Susie and Jared has been on slow burn for years. When it finally ignites, passion and emotions explode.
Jared & Susie's story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, alpha heroes, smart sassy heroines, frenemies to lovers, hate to love, opposites attract, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of swoon, and a broody hero.
*A full-length, standalone romance.
