When the woman of his dreams walks through his door, it seems too good to be true...
World famous metal artist Gabe Walker is elated when the woman he’s loved since high school strolls into his workshop to ask him out on a date. But there’s a catch—it’s with another woman. Gabe has no trouble saying no to that date, but with Chantel? The answer’s always hell yes.
With two failed relationships behind her, Chantel Chandler wants to keep things light. She’s recently back in Whiskey River, Texas, and is determined to pick up the pieces of her life. But her casual friendship with Gabe quickly combusts into an intensely hot affair with an unexpected surprise…a pregnancy.
Chantel would love to be a mom, but she needs to be loved for herself first. Gabe says he’s all in, but how can she trust again when she’s been let down so many times?
Enjoyed this book. I’m glad Gabe and Chantel finally got their HEA.
When you get too close to fire, you run the risk of getting burned. When you get too close to a person, you open yourself up to either pain or joy - or a combination of both.
Gabe and Chantal have lives with baggage that so stuffed, it’s ready to burst. Gabe is overly careful and is singularly focused, as shows in his artwork. But of the two, it is Chantal that has been more severely burned in her past. So severely that she runs the other way rather than face problems or the pain.
The author has created full characters and even the minor characters are strong. There is a happy ending but you wonder most of the book how and if it can possibly happen.
I received an advanced reader copy for free from the publisher and am voluntarily leaving my review.
