From New York Times best-selling authors, Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, comes a new standalone novel.
It started out like any normal day.
Then the fender bender happened.
The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous.
Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.
Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway - one I was excited about.
Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.
Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.
The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.
So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.
To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece. At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed. But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game - don’t ask.)
We continued to flirt without crossing the line - until it finally happened.
This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?
Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.
Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

Get ready for the magic! It happens every time Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward get together and write a book! I adored this book from the Meet Cute at the beginning until the end! Elodie and Hollis are really meant for each other. Hollis has taken in his niece to raise. He is search of a nanny. Elodie needs gainful employment. Both are in need of someone to love and to love them. This book has a little bit of everything. A talking parrot who says Baa after meeting a goat with a certain owner with an Australian accent! 5 amazing stars
A Sweet Twist of Fate
Loving a book on every level is not always something I walk away with after reading a book. However, the Dynamic Duo that is Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland have managed to grant me such a rarity! I loved the clashing of Elodie and Hollis! Their abrasiveness from the onset pulled me in right away! Having characters start off on shaky ground is always intriguing to me. These two also set the stage for an interesting “meet cute”. The unraveling of their story is engaging and the secondary characters provide for a lasting impact. Each one plays a significant role in these two love birds’ fate. From the curiosity of Hollis’ niece to the nosiness of his best friend, there is no shortage of endearment. Heart-tugging moments and tear-filled situations are magically created within the pages of this story that I will never forget. These characters, their situations, their personalities, and their relationships have made their mark on my heart. And for that, this book is special and should not be passed up by anyone!
