It’s just supposed to be a weekend fling. . . . “Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne
Fresh out of a long-term relationship, Willow Parks is working two jobs and caring for her mother, whose husband left her with nothing but a pile of bills. That’s why Willow made a vow: no men until she figures out her own life.
But while she may not need a man, she could use a break. And a weekend away at a California beach to clear her head? That’s appealing. Even if the offer comes from Trey Collins, the irresistible tech-mogul millionaire who visits her coffee shop every morning like clockwork—and needs a date for his best friend’s wedding. With an adorable, occasional stutter, he refuses to take no for an answer.
Once the weekend begins, Trey is intent on proving how good they can be together. Willow’s even feeling tempted to break her vow—until reality rudely interrupts her well-deserved getaway. There’s no way she and Trey have a future, not with the colossal amount of baggage Willow has to offer.
But Trey is used to getting what he wants. He just has his work cut out for him convincing her that they want the same thing.

The Barista and The Techie
Returning home after a failed relationship, Willow Parks vows to not ever put herself in the position to depend on a male again. She spends her days working two jobs so her mom doesn’t lose her home and caring for her mom. So there’s really not any time for a personal life anyway. Her mom is broken and can barely get herself out of bed since her husband left her and filed for divorce. Willow knows she needs professional help, but can’t convince her mom to get help. Willow sees how devastating depending on a man to provide, take care of all the bills can be. So when Trey approaches her for a date, she turns him down.
Trey Collins, a multi-million dollar tech mogul, has eyes for Willow. He has tried multiple times to ask her out, but she always turns him down. He even visits, works from the coffee shop so he can see her daily. He knows she’s always there and always works hard, but it’s the rest of the package that has him so intrigued. He figures if he can just convince her to go on one date, he can convince her to give him a chance. Opportunity finally presents itself and he convinces her to be his date for a weekend getaway for his best friend’s wedding. Knowing that she could use an all-expense paid vacation, she agrees. When the amazing weekend comes to an abrupt halt due to a family emergency, the walls go back up and she pushes Trey away...
Stacey Lynn has written a beautiful story touching on realistic, emotional, and heavy topics. Depression, attempted suicide, and dependency are tough topics addressed throughout this novel. As an only child, who mistakenly thinks her dad has abandoned them, Willow struggles to get her mom help. Her mom neglected the house, the bills, and anything that once mattered to her. Willow comes home to a house basically in foreclosure and is doing her best to pay the bills while NOT becoming her mom. Trey is a true Prince Charming. He’s supportive without being needy. He doesn’t just step in, take over, and pay the bills. He leaves Willow to make her own decisions and choices because he knows that’s what she needs. While this story ends in a HEA, the topics discussed are serious and realistic. I highly recommend this novel. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I have been dying for Trey's story since reading 28 Dates. This series has been fun and light but Trey's book is quite a bit heavier than all the books before it.
I loved all of the emotion and Trey is my favorite of the series. I did want more of Trey and Willow and felt like the end was kind of abrupt. Overall, I enjoyed their story and this series a lot.
Great book. Fairytale romance. Touches on mental health issues in a realistic way but not too heavy. Liked it!
