Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 29, 2021
They say opposites attract, but I never understood the phrase until Leni Abbott walked into my office—or more specifically—into my office bathroom, while I was naked. Even as the pink stained her cheeks and she stuttered to speak, I was completely intrigued. She’s unlike anyone I’ve met before and, wildly enough, seems immune to my charms.
She also has a son. A young five-year-old boy, Trace, who blindsides me with his toothless grin and worms his way into my heart.
Together, they make me feel things. Things I’ve never expected. This single mom might not know it, but she could be everything I never knew I wanted.
I’ve heard all the rumors about Malcolm Wright, the playboy mayor with a trail of broken hearts left in his wake. I try to resist him, really I do, but he’s always there with those devastatingly gorgeous eyes and a sexy smile full of wicked intent. When he hires my business to clean his impressive house, I know I should stay away, yet find my resolve slipping.
Then he meets my son. I fully expect him to run for the hills, but that doesn’t happen. In fact, being near Trace only seems to draw Malcolm and I closer.
Now there are two hearts on the line as I put my trust and faith into the one man in Mason Creek who may not be able to give his own heart in return.
So Mason Creek is a small town with a big heart. Visiting Mason Creek is like coming home.
So here we have Mason Creek's mayor with a playboy reputation, falling hard for small business owner Lenora and her cute as a button son Trace. It goes to show that finding the one person who completes you is worth the wait. From the moment Leni walks in on him naked he is done for. No-one else matters to him. The problem though with small town living is that everyone knows everyone's business so it is difficult to develop a relationship under the town's scrutiny.
Leni has returned home to be closer to her family after being left by Trace's father. Building a cleaning business enables her to do something she enjoys whilst providing her the flexibility to care for her young son.
What I love most about Malcolm is that he not opens his heart to Leni but to Trace as well. He incredibly kind, generous and patient with the boy, giving him time, attention and unconditional love. Nothing sexier in my eyes.
For the most part, this was drama free. The drama that did raise its head did create the uncertainty needed in the relationship before they realised that they are perfect for each other. I felt as though as I was wrapped in a favourite blanket whilst reading this, embraced by it's comfort and friendliness. A great feel good read.
