My grandfather left me his business with one insane condition: I need a wife and two kids. Too bad I’m a divorced single dad. Cue my ex-wife’s best friend moving in next door. And then mix in a few bad decisions.
What do you get? A complicated, sexy mess.
The list of reasons I should stay away from my neighbor is about as long as his… wrench. He’s a dirty mechanic, he’s a single dad, and he can’t seem to keep his shirt on for more than five minutes.
Did I mention his ex wife is my best friend? Yeah. Reid Riggins is absolutely, one hundred percent, the last person in the world I should get involved with. Even if he is heart-stoppingly gorgeous with strong, powerful hands that could rip my clothes off with ease.
Not that I’ve imagined that, of course.
The point is I don’t want anything to do with him. He can stay in his stupid garage with his stupidly cute son and hit things with wrenches all day. He can keep on wearing those blue jeans that fit him just right for all I care.
Except I may have told a white lie to my eccentric, rich parents. I may have told them I’m engaged to a wealthy businessman, and now they want to meet my fake fiance. Unfortunately, Reid might be the only guy who’s willing to play along.
No problem. It’s just for a few days. Just to get them off my back. What could go wrong?
This is the second book in the Taken by the Single Dads Series by Penelope Bloom.
