He’s a single-dad, and her employee. Falling for him is a terrible idea.
The Least Amount Of Awful by Jennifer Millikin is now live!
Colbie Jones has worked hard to design a pain-free life. So when she catches her boyfriend cheating, it doesn’t hurt that much. But when Colbie receives a call that her estranged father, Emmett, has been badly injured, she realizes it’s time to pack her bags and finally face him—and that’s going to hurt.
Colbie’s arrival sends shock waves through the small town, but it affects Jake Whittier most of all. Single-dad and foreman of Jones Construction, Jake sees Emmett as the father he no longer has, and that makes him an opponent of all things Colbie Jones.
Jake’s obvious animosity doesn’t bother Colbie, because she’s leaving in three days, tops. But then her dad asks her to stay and take over his business while he recovers, and Colbie hears herself agreeing before she has fully considered the proposal. Never mind that she has no idea how to build a house.
Jake will just have to deal with having her around.
But the more time Colbie spends with Jake, the more she sees why the rest of the town likes him. And once Colbie meets Jake’s son, it’s all downhill from there.
Colbie thought the most challenging part of this arrangement would be having to work with Jake.
But falling for him?
That would be awful.

The divorce of her parents when she was a child had a huge impact on how Colbie viewed love and relationships. As a result, she only allows people so close so finding out that her boyfriend was another person she couldn’t depend on wasn’t a surprise but when the father she isn’t close to needs her help it seems like the escape she needs.
Jake is a single father to his son Robbie and works for Colbie’s father. He also carries the emotional scars of his past and is conflicted when Colbie comes to town. He is loyal to her father and now they find themselves working together while trying to battle the feelings he has for her.
This is a heartwarming story about healing from the past and opening your heart to love and family. I enjoyed the relationship not only between Colbie and Jack but her relationship with Robbie as well as they found the happiness they all deserve.
