The Two-Date Rule from Tawna Fenske
Willa Frank has one simple rule: never go on a date with anyone more than twice. Now that her business is providing the stability she’s always needed, she can’t afford distractions. Her two-date rule will protect her just fine…until she meets smokejumper Grady Billman.
After one date—one amazing, unforgettable date—Grady isn’t ready to call it quits, despite his own no-attachments policy, and he’s found a sneaky way around both their rules.
Throwing gutter balls with pitchers of beer? Not a real date. Everyone knows bowling doesn’t count.
Watching a band play at a local show? They just happen to have the same great taste in music. Definitely not a date.
Hiking? Nope. How can exercise be considered a date?
With every “non-date” Grady suggests, his reasoning gets more ridiculous, and Willa must admit she’s having fun playing along. But when their time together costs Willa two critical clients, it’s clear she needs to focus on the only thing that matters—her future. And really, he should do the same.
But what is she supposed to do with a future that looks gray without Grady in it?
Due to Willa’s past she is determined to ensure that she is successful in her career and financially stable. She isn’t about to be distracted by any man and she keeps her interactions with them short and casual. This arrangement has worked well for her in the past, but Grady is determined to show her how much fun bending the rules can be.
Grady comes from a very large and close family and has followed in their footsteps and chosen to become a firefighter. When he meets Willa he is intrigued by her and realizes that two dates are not going to be enough so he comes up with some pretty unique ways to circumvent her rules but when their new relationship is tested will they realize what is truly important or return to the way their lives were before they met each other?
I enjoyed watching the relationship unfold between Willa and Grady and with the great assembly of secondary characters I look forward to more books in this series.
