Ready or not…love will find a way
Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the "barbecue master" at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be.
Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff's badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there's more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there's something about the elusive beauty Nathan can't walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.

Hogan Guthrie is a busy man, working as an accountant by day, and burning the midnight oil as a BBQ grill master at a local restaurant. He does all he can to make a good life for him and his son, and spending his evenings working alongside Violet is hardly a hardship, well most days anyway. She is beyond beautiful, and can be stubborn as hell, but that doesn't seem to dampen his interest in her. After being burned badly by his ex he has his reservations about getting involved again, but no matter how many reservations he has, Violet just keeps finding a way to get around them! Question is can he trust her with his badly wounded heart?
The moment Nathan Hawley eyes land on his gorgeous new neighbor he knows he needs to meet her and learn everything there is to know about her... but she isn't so receptive to him. Every time he tries to talk to her she quickly brushes him off, and goes on about her business. But Nathan isn't the kind of man to back down from a challenge, so he decides this one is going to time take some time, good thing he has all the time in the world. He will find a way to lure her into his world one way or the other!
This was quite the read, not only do you get to witness Hogan and Violet find their happily ever after, but you also get to see Hogan's buddy discover his too... it's double the love! These two couples had me wrapped up in their worlds instantaneously and rooting them on the whole way through! Their story lines were blended together seamlessly, and were easy to follow, Ms. Foster did an outstanding job with this one!! It was a sweet, witty, and very sexy addition to the Guthrie Brother series! I highly recommend you visit this series, you are guaranteed some exceptionally crafted stories that come equipped with some endearing characters that are sure to steal your heart!!
