In USA Today bestselling author Laura Drewry’s witty, sizzling, and tender romance for readers of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery, a woman who can’t slow down discovers that the perfect guy is in hot pursuit.
Even when her hair salon goes under and she’s on the brink of breaking, Regan Burke keeps her “I’m just fine” attitude. She’s had a tough life, coping with a difficult family and keeping her act together . . . barely. Right now, she just needs a job, any job, so she can pay her mother’s medical bills. It’s the exact wrong time for Carter Scott to come into her life—and to be so damn sexy, so distracting, and so determined to get close.
Carter isn’t looking for anything serious—his heart belongs to the kids who depend on his pediatric practice—but something about Regan makes him reconsider. Maybe it’s the scars she hides so well, the secrets she can’t share. Carter knows all about that kind of pain, and he wants to help. But offering Regan a job in his office only makes things worse, even if their chemistry is off the charts. Lucky for them both, Carter isn’t about to let go of love without a fight.
“Well, that’s good then.” Carter bobbed his head in a slow nod as he sipped his beer.
“Why’s that good?” Katie slid her nacho plate to the left a little as Ben tucked his phone away and took the chair beside her.
Carter fixed his gaze on Regan as his grin grew wider, sexier. “Because I’d hate to get my ass kicked by Linebacker Leon when I kiss Red here at midnight.”
Katie choked on her chip, but Regan just shook her head and laughed.
“What makes you think I’m going to let you kiss me?”
He nipped the last mozzarella stick from her plate, bit off a chunk, then chased it with a long swig of his beer. “Because it’s New Year’s Eve, we’re both here alone, and going by the last guy I saw you with, I’m bettin’ it’s been a while since you were good and kissed.”
“Carter!” Katie’s scolding might have been more threatening if she hadn’t still been choking behind her napkin.
The thing was, Carter might be obnoxious, and he might be cocky as hell, but he wasn’t wrong, and even as Regan laughed, Maya’s voice echoed in her brain.
After a while, she wiped her mouth on a napkin and lifted her right shoulder. “Even if that were true—and I’m not saying it is—what makes you think you’re the man for the job?”
“You shittin’ me?” The half smile was back. “After what happened down at your shop?”
Katie’s hand froze halfway to her mouth, letting a couple of olives tumble from the chip. “What happened?”
“She couldn’t keep her hands off me.”
“I ?” Regan choked. “I cut your hair, Carter; it involves a little touching.”
“Not like that.” He winked at Katie and grinned cheekily. “And you should’ve seen her over there getting some food a minute ago. She tried to kill Maya just so we could be alone.”
“Oh my God,” Regan laughed. “In your dreams maybe.”
“No about it.” He thumbed to the spot where they’d been standing when he touched her hair. “And what about over there? You telling me you react like that every time some guy talks to you?”
His grin was too cocky, too confident. .
Damn it. Pulling her plate out of Carter’s reach, Regan tried to give him a look of utter indifference, but her mouth kept twitching against a smile. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Ohmygod.” Katie let her chip fall to the table. “What happened?”
. Regan tipped a warning look at Carter, who simply shrugged and stared straight back at her.
“Me and you, Red.” He took another sip of his beer, his dark eyes never leaving hers. “Midnight.”
