About the Book:
The worst kind of heartache is the kind you can’t walk away from.
Jilted. Living in a glorified closet. The world’s worst bar waitress. I just need to keep a roof over my head and make tuition payments until I can finish graduate school. Then my real life will start. But right now, long nights at the Speakeasy have me burning the candle at both ends and the wax melting all over my fingers.
When a bar manager offers me a job taking care of his adorable five-year-old daughter, it seems like the perfect solution. I get a quiet place to study. Matteo gets a reliable sitter.
There should be no complications. Except that I like my new boss a little too much. His gorgeous dark eyes humble me, and the long talks we share fill me up inside. I can’t possibly fall for him.
But the undeniable pull between us leads to a scorching kiss I can’t ignore or forget, and suddenly I’ve fallen for them both, father and daughter.
And now three hearts are at stake.
Matteo has been a single father to his five-year-old daughter Lauren since she was an infant. When he is offered the manager job at Speakeasy, he is looking forward to both the opportunity and the lifestyle that Vermont offers however he wasn’t expecting finding someone to care for his daughter to be such a challenge.
Melanie has just realized that she delayed her dreams for the future for the wrong man. She has returned to her hometown and is trying to balance attending school and working at Speakeasy which is proving to be difficult. Spending the evening looking after Matteo’s daughter is the solution to both their dilemmas but they are about realize that they are destined to be so much more than boss/employee.
There is no denying the chemistry between them, but it was seeing the relationship not only between Melanie and Matteo but Melanie and Lauren as well that made this family so special.
