The last time I saw the man—jerk—of my dreams, he fired me. Now, he’s back in town to renovate my bed and breakfast before the tourist season starts.
I might have gotten over my grudge, but I sure haven’t moved on since him. Harrison is the ideal hunk, or he was back when we were young and stupid. My contractor is still sexy, possibly sweet, and easily keeps up with my sarcasm…but he’s a package deal this time. He’s back with a daughter and a chip of his shoulder, neither of which should matter to me. But the more I see him on the job, each time we clash and fall into our thrilling push-and-pull, I have to wonder if there’s something fresh to start with him before the summer kicks off.
Of all people, it just had to be Jessie Green buying this old dump. Imagine my shock that the feisty, gorgeous, stubborn girl I fell in love with in high school is the owner of our town’s former brothel.
Her plans for a B&B are a nearly impossible race against time—doable, but it’s quite the hustle. With the tables turned—her hiring me—it’d be easier done if I didn’t have to see her day in and day out, worrying if she can overlook our past, wondering if she tastes as good as she looks, wishing I could have a take two. Hell, even a take one

I received this book from the author.
STAHP!! This book was hilarious!!! If you can write a book about restoring an old brothel into a bed and breakfast while fighting rats and flavored lube…I am sold!!!
Seriously I totally loved this story about Jessie and Harrison. They made my heart happy. Enemies to Lovers/2nd Chance/single dad story is a definite win for me.
Jessie is still holding a grudge against Harrison for firing her 10 years ago from the ice cream story. LOL Girl is strong with the dislike!!! Jessie needs to get this brothel restored for “The Season” to make back all the money she has sunk into the building. This is all she has and she is close to losing it if she can’t get the house done!! *shakes fist* Damn you Wormer!!!!
Harrison is feeling terrible about uprooting his daughter Mel and moving home. Now he is working to and trying to get someone with a ridiculous grudge to forgive him. He starts with with his family and soon discovers he will be working for Jessie…the girl he mega crushed over and who now hates him. E just wished she knew WHY he did what he did.
The couple have amazing chemistry and the banter….stappppp it was great!! Throw in Harrison struggling to deal with his over the top nerdy daughter Mel throwing in crazy words I had to look up too and the comedy is great. The couple find themselves in crazy situations but once they get past everything and move toward building a better tomorrow is when it was truly awesome.
Amabel Daniels lives in Northwest Ohio with her patient husband, three adventurous daughters, and a collection of too many cats and dogs. Although she holds a Master’s degree in Ecology, her true love is finding a good book. When she isn’t spending time outdoors, she’s busy brewing up her next novel, usually as she lets her mind run off with the addictive words of “what if…”
