I’m out of my depth participating in a blind-date photo shoot. Not only am I meant to act like I’m open for dating, but I’m meant to be sexy and get up close and personal with a complete stranger.
None of the above is me. But I’m a sucker, and my best friend can talk me into anything.
Deacon is the kind of guy my heart could be safe with. But I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time, and I’m not sure I’m ready to rely on anyone else. Not even the handsome, successful older brother of my best friend.
I never saw her coming. One date with a beautiful stranger and I’m hooked.
Technically, Ramsey isn’t a stranger. She’s my little sister’s best friend, the same sister who volunteered me because she claims “I’m a workaholic in desperate need of love.”
All I know is I can’t stop thinking about Ramsey and the way her lips felt against mine. I have to see her again. Good thing I’m an attorney, because convincing her to take a chance on me is going to be the hardest case I’ve ever pleaded. She’s worried about the past repeating itself. What she’s yet to figure out is that her fear is unnecessary… never with me.
Deacon is a man who is always there for his friends and family, but he has a plan for his career which he is focused on and isn’t about to be distracted from. When he agrees to a blind date which includes a photo shoot he believes that it is an hour to get through and forget about until he meets his date. She is wrong for him for so many reasons including the fact she is his sister’s best friend, but she is throwing him off kilter with all the unexpected feelings he is experiencing.
A few years ago Ramsey escaped a difficult situation with her family and has found a home with her extended family. She knows what she wants in her life and that is being independent and never having to rely on anyone again. A favor to her best friend has her wondering if Deacon is too good to be true or the one man she can trust with her heart.
Ramsey’s strength and resilience shines through as she leaves everything she has known to forge her own path while Deacon is understanding and patient as he shows Ramsey that every choice she makes is her own and he will always be there to support her. Two people who weren’t looking for love until it finds them, and the outcome couldn’t have been more beautiful.
