This unlikely getaway driver never expected to help the mayor escape…
After a six-year absence, Addison Potts is back in Charleston to stir things up. And what better place to make her villainous return than her estranged cousin's wedding? Only, the nuptials hit a snag when the bride doesn't show, leaving Addison to play getaway driver for the jilted groom. A groom whose heartbreaking smile and deep, southern drawl she should not be noticing…
Elijah Montgomery Du Pont is the future mayor of Charleston. From his military career to city hall, every detail of his life has been meticulously planned. Until now. His only respite from life's sudden upheaval is Addison, his new, improbable best friend. She makes him happy. Grounds him. And public disapproval be damned, he's not willing to give her up. But with an election on the line and public pressure rising, Addison—and the cruel hand of fate—might not give him a choice.

This is how it’s SUPPOSED to be people. Two people meet, they get to know each other, they like each other, and that TURNS IN TO LOVE! Thanks to Tessa Bailey for writing a story about fairly normal people with jobs, and friends, and feelings. Even though the H has money, the story isn’t about that. He’s not a jerk, she’s not a virgin and still the story is wonderful! Well written dialogue and steamy scenes, and a solid plot...if you like those things - read this book!
One of the best!
Unusual setting starting at a wedding where the groom get jilted. But I as sucked immediately when the beautiful girl gives the guy a ride away from all the ruckus. She’s brass with him, but offers him a drink and place to wind down. All while keeping it nice but brassy enough to keep him at a distance. They become best of friends without touching each other. But when they give into the attraction it’s super hot and explosive. He’s a big sweet beautiful man and she’s a brassy knock out.
Refreshing change of storyline. Good characters and essence of southern culture. Good depth and growth of Elijah’s character after being left at the alter.
