Publisher Description

Sean O’Brien sacrificed his future for his family. Now it’s his turn to find love and happiness.

Eighteen years ago Sean became the man of the house when his father walked out on the family. Without a second thought, he put his own hopes and dreams on the back burner and took care of his mom and younger sister. Now the co-owner of a successful bed and breakfast, Sean has accepted his position in life—until the day Mia Troy checks in.

When Hollywood sweetheart, Mia Troy, checks into the Victorian Rose, the only things on her mind are rest and relaxation before she begins work on her new movie in Boston. That is until she meets Sean O’Brien, the co-owner of the bed and breakfast. From the moment she checks in, Mia is drawn to Sean, a reserved man who sees past her celebrity status.

Despite his better judgment, Sean can’t ignore his physical attraction to Mia. Soon he gives into his desire, telling himself all she wants is a quick fling to pass the time. As they spend time together, his feelings grow. But can love between a small town guy and an A-list celebrity ever last?

I really enjoyed the subtlety and simplicity of this story. And, the female lead character being the one who initiated things.

Don’t know what he has until he might lose ever

A romance that shouldn’t work with Sean in New Hampshire and Mia in Hollywood does. Their instant attraction and passion are evident. They have fun, enjoy each other’s company and have genuine care and concern for the other. For these two people, as well as, some of the other characters in this book things are not always as they seem and it’s an emotional journey for them all. This is an entertaining and sweet story that starts this series.
