Who does that sexy silver fox think he is, sitting in her spot in the Busy Bean Cafe?

Over forty, with zero filter, Rita Kaplan loves her coffee, her hiking boots, and her law practice. Life hasn’t always been carefree, though, and Rita’s past holds the scars of poor decisions after deep loss. She survived, though, and no smirky silver fox is going to get in the way of her happiness. Even if he knows how to use his drill, screwdriver, and every other tool in his box to tempt her . . .

Former arson investigator Jake Drummond could add ex-con to his resume if he had one. Instead, he’s serving the final year of his sentence on probation. This involves mandatory AA meetings, hosted by a feisty local attorney, and working on a renovation project, supervised by the same annoyingly attractive whirlwind, who also believes she owns the exclusive rights to a comfy couch in his new favorite coffee shop. Soon she’s everywhere, including the few places she shouldn’t be--like in his bed and in his heart.

Can opposites lower their walls and construct something everlasting . . . or will their connected past lead to demolition for two hearts in need of a rebuild?


When I picked up this book I didn't expect it to be so emotional and the surprise enraptured me even more, I quickly finished it and I felt really involved in the story.

Rita Kaplan is a successful lawyer and she spends her free time supervising some building projects for a nonprofit organization. Jake Drummond is an ex convict, he is out on parole and he has to work as electrician for a nonprofit house make over organization. They meet on site and they start off on the wrong foot, they can't stand each other character but they feel a deep physical chemistry. As the days pass and they keep seeing each other everywhere , on site, at the cafe and at the pub too, it seems like there's a force that pull them together. Even though they know that it isn't right to be involved in a relationship the attraction between them is too strong to resist.

We have seen Rita before but we finally know her story thanks to the fine pen of L.B. Dunbar.
I liked how the author showed us all the layers of these character, making them real and relatable.

Rita and Jake journey is not simple but it feels compelling, they have some heartbreaking stories to tell, they both need a second chance and to make some peace with their pasts. I liked the way they came together from just barely tolerating each other to be the perfect person to feel free and alive after so long.

I recommend it and I swear it is a fun, steamy and weepy read you won't regret it.
