For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She's focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. To help her achieve that goal, she agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills. But Seth Landry isn’t quite who she pictured. For one, he’s very tall. And broody. And super sexy.
Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn't plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.
The closer they get, though, the more they can't seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth's mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission...

Seth and Bobbie Jo
Bobbie Jo Weston has always dreamed of opening her own B&B. As a single mom, working full-time and raising her son hasn't allowed a lot of extra time or money to realize her dream. When her boss approaches her with a proposition of free work for room and board for his nephew, she can hardly say no. Until she lays eyes on Seth, the sexiest man she's ever seen.
Seth, a retired Resistance military specialist, is a wonderer. Never one to stay in one place too long, Seth offers his construction skills in return for room and board until he leaves on another adventure. Although Bobbie Jo is not sure about letting a complete stranger live with her and her young son, she knows her boss to be a good person and figures his nephew is too. Their chemistry is off the charts, but she knows Seth is keeping secrets. Having had bad luck with men in the past, Bobbie Jo pushes Seth away. Will they be able to put their trust issues aside or will their pasts catch up with them?
LOVED the suspense of this story!!! I loved the chemistry and Seth's ability to break down Bobbie Jo's walls. I laughed out loud when Seth was left to care for Bobbie Jo's son while she worked!!! The house was destroyed, he learned a few curse words, but fun was had. Even though Seth was keeping his past "job" a secret and it comes back to bite him in the butt, Bobbie Jo drove me crazy. At times, I felt as though she thought she did no wrong. All in all, very well written. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Exciting, sexy, unpredictable
I was drawn in by Bobbie Jo’s strength and determination to build a good life for her and her son. A one-night stand with a jerk leaves her a single mom but she embraces it, no matter what challenges are in her way. She buys a rundown farm to turn it into a Bed and Breakfast but has run out of money for all the repairs. Step in a good friend, Junior, who’s nephew, Seth needs a place to stay and is a handy man. She never expects Seth to be the sexy guy she encountered at the bar. Seth is a tough nut to crack, he carries a quiet confidence while being incredibly built and sexy. Bobbie would love to uncover his secrets as she gets to know him and he embraces her and her son, Austin. Seth says he doesn’t do long-term but will being around Bobbie and Austin change his mind. I loved how their relationship had to build as they both had trust issues. I also appreciated Bobbie’s desire to stand on her own and build the life she wanted for her and Austin.
