My life is a hot mess.

Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating—nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around.

Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?

Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right?

Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother, who wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.

Life is messy.

And love?

Well, love is even messier.


Lexi is a single mom to two adorable girls and she works as a book editor. Her life is chaotic. She is running on empty trying to raise her girls and staying up late nights to work. This has left her with very little time to have a social life. On a weekend where her girls are with their father Lexi's friends convince her to take a night off.

Lexi decides to blow off some steam with the sexy bartender. Luke is more of a one night stand kind of guy but he soon finds himself wanting to spend more time with Lexi. These two had great chemistry and I loved Luke with Lexi’s little girls; they were so cute together.

Then we have Cole who is Lexi’s boss and Luke’s brother. Cole can’t stand his brother and when he discovers Lexi and Luke are together things blow up. He tries to cause a rift between the couple because he hates his brother. It is revealed that Luke is a former firefighter. You are left wondering what happened to make him leave his career. Then there are secrets between him and Cole. Cole is blaming Luke for something in the past that the reader is not aware of yet. Cole was really hard to like because he was so angry but I am curious to see why he is hurting.

Looking forward to the conclusion to this duet. The end reveals a tiny peak into Luke’s past and I can’t wait to read what happens. If you are looking for a hot, steamy, and sweet story with a few secrets you will like this one.
