A chance neither expected.
A risk too great to chance.
Ready to make a new life for herself and her eight-year-old niece in their grandmother’s home, Callie Jones feels like things are falling into place. As a fiction editor and full-time parent to Sylvie, the new, safer neighborhood gives her a chance to breathe. At least until she meets her new neighbor—the enigmatic, serious, scorching hot Carter Chase. She sees right through his grumpy outer shell to the man who always seems to be there to help when they need it most. Single for longer than she’d like to admit, Carter tempts something deep inside her, but when Sylvie’s birth father returns to demand custody, the perfect life she’s trying so hard to build is threatened and her chance with Carter will have to wait.
Completely devoted to his job as CEO of his father’s charter jet and helicopter company SkyChase, Carter Chase has little time for anything else. He doesn’t mind—it’s his calling, plus a difficult college heartbreak assured he’d never take a chance on love again. But when his gorgeous new neighbor and her outgoing young niece start to turn his world upside down—he can’t remember why he never took time for himself. Ready to take a chance with Callie, everything falls apart with the return of Sylvie’s father. Can Carter convince Callie that he can be the man they both need?
A Wonderful Opposites Attract romance featuring a sassy preteen and adorable dog is just the book you need to curl up with. What’s better than a sexy man who knows what he wants? Fans of Melissa Foster and Tracey Brogan will love TOUCHING DOWN.
Realizing he was out of his depth and likely unable to keep from touching Callie, Carter pushed his chair back from the table. “I should probably get home. But this was wonderful, thank you.”
Callie frowned slightly but stood up as he did. “You’re welcome. We’ll do it again, okay?”
“Okay,” he answered. They were standing so close he could smell the coconut of her sunblock. It was intoxicating. “Have Sylvie bring Bo back when they’re done playing.”
“Will do.” She stuffed her hands in her pockets and stared at the ground.
Hating to see the disappointment in her beautiful face, Carter took a step forward and lifted her chin in his fingers. The brief touch sent a wave of sensation through him he’d never felt before.
Nothing could keep him from kissing her in that moment, especially when she licked her lips and her breath quickened across his fingers. He leaned forward and closed the distance, savoring the excited breath Callie sucked in as his lips drew near. Just as he was about to make contact, Sylvie slammed out of the backdoor, forcing him backward about three feet.
Nothing could keep him from kissing Callie—except for a noisy eight-year-old with a popsicle.
