About the Book:
Randall Dickson is coping. Sort of. An upcoming medical eval, one that could end his military career, has him stressed and making bad choices. So when a concerned friend issues a strongly-worded “invitation” to Vermont, R.D. is all in for a change of scenery, a temporary job as a bartender, and the opportunity to shake himself out of his self-destructive routine.
Then he sets eyes on his seriously sexy new co-worker…
Lily Reynolds, an artist by day, Speakeasy’s favorite bartender at night, works hard to stay positive, unlike her surly new coworker. He may be a treat to look at, but that grumpy attitude and terse manner are not her type. So when Lily finds herself in desperate need of someone to share expenses, she convinces R.D. to rent her vacant room. There’s no way she’ll find herself falling for him.
She’d like to find the secret admirer who’s leaving her secret love notes around the bar, though. But he won’t reveal himself…
This standalone contains: opposites who definitely attract, a workplace romance, and an opinionated French bulldog.
Due to an accident while on leave R.D. is struggling to heal so that he can return to his military career which is the driving force in his life. When he is about to make a devastating choice Griff isn’t about to stand by without doing anything so he convinces him to get away from the situation by taking a temporary job at the Taproom.
Lily is an artist who also works at the Taproom. She has a way of seeing the good in every situation and every person and is just someone you want to be around but there is so much she doesn’t share. When she needs a roommate and he needs a place to stay it seems like the perfect solution and it’s not like they are going to act on the chemistry between them, right?
Both R.D. and Lily have their challenges to overcome but for two people who couldn’t be more different in every way they prove they are simpatico when it comes to what really matters and that is their feelings for each other.
