Picking up a stranger off the side of the road is risky. Falling in love with him is . . . not going to happen. Probably.
My life is all doughnuts and sprinkles, and I can't lie to save my life.
None of that is a problem until I find a man beaten up on the side of the road. In the dark. In the rain. And even though I promised I'd never again pick up a stranger, I load him into my car—not an easy task—and drive him to a hospital. I couldn't just leave him there.
That's how I end up spending a week in a luxurious house, soaking in a hot tub, gazing at the stars, and playing nurse to Garrett. Besides the bandages and bruises, it's a recipe for romance.
Except I want no part in anything romantic. Dating will land my heart on the butchering slab, and I refuse be hurt again.
He's interested. I wish I could lie and say I'm not.
Instead, I suggest we just stay friends. What's the risk in that?
Fun, gentle love story
Love, love, love Garrett and Tessa! What a sweet, gentle love story. This book was a great ending to a fantastic series, the bonus epilogue was the perfect finishing touch! And a warning, it will also make you want to find a little donut shop and eat all the things!
Such a fun and heartfelt story, this book just doesn’t quit. Tessa and Garrett are the perfect lead characters. You just want them to get together, in spite of the baggage and history they (well mostly Tessa) carry. She’s smart, capable, and runs her own business, alibi a bit too tightly controlled. And yet she’s got a heart of gold that she just can’t quite bring herself to give away again after a bad experience with an old boyfriend. Garrett is every woman’s dream boyfriend. He’s kind, patient, good looking, and simply adores Tessa. Best yet, he’s willing to o wait for her feelings to catch up to his. I love the way Ms Carrington wrote these characters and how their “friendship” developed and grew as the story progressed. This is definitely a must read. Don’t miss it. I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my freely given, honest review.
After the last book I didn’t think I could like any couple as much as Eli and Delaney and then come along Garrett and Tessa. The moment she pulled over in the rain to help a stranger was the moment I knew this book was going to be so good. Tessa was just so sweet and as a fellow sympathy crier I felt I could really relate to her. Once I reached the end of this book I knew I had to go back and start all over at the beginning of this series. This whole series has been so much fun and I just loved how each character in it was so different but they all had traits that made them so wonderful. Must reads for anyone who likes a clean rom-com!
