Blurb: Falling for the enemy has never been so deliciously complicated in this standalone romance where a sexy single dad meets his unexpected match! Get ready for all the feels!

Never have I ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.

The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney.

Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.

And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.


I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple — fight till the end for my clients, and my family.

The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with…except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years.

Second chances don’t come around for guys like me…or do they?

My Review

Emotion overload!! In.The.Best.Way.Ever! This book was like the perfect blended cocktail of deliciousness! 

It was, all at once… A frenemies-to-lovers, a second chance romance, and a single dad romance. So perfect y’all! 

Zach and Piper ran in the same social circles back in college. Zach became a divorce attorney and Piper became a wedding planner extraordinaire They were most definitely frenemies. Zach like to run off at the mouth about how he thinks couple will fare in their marriages. Piper being a wedding planner did not appreciate that. AT.ALL! 

Fast forward to ten years after college and Zach is now a widower with two kids and a successful shark of lawyer. Now… One would expect him to be mean and jaded and angry at the world because of what all he’s lost, but he’s actually wonderful. He’s an amazing dad, great brother, and fantastic friend. Even his motivation for wanting to become a lawyer is not what you would expect. He just wants to be a great lawyer, help his clients and raise amazing kids.

When best man and maid of honor duties require him and Piper to spend more time together, that thin line between love and hate starts to blur. Zach and Piper find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of a friends-with-benefits arrangement that quickly becomes so much more than either of them could have ever expected. 

Will this budding, err relationship be able to go anywhere when they are hiding it from everyone they know? 

I absolutely loved Piper! She was sassy and sweet and beautiful and I want to be her BFF! But she was also selfless and giving and would do anything for those she loved. I loved what she did for her sister. My heart melted at her sweet friendship with Lucy. She was so giving to everybody else I wanted her to get her HEA probably more than I have wanted that for a character in a long time, and she was a strong gal. She wasn’t broken or damaged. She was just so good at heart she deserved all the goodness life has to offer. 

This book was full of fabulous secondary characters. Zach’s adorable kiddos, Lucy and Henry. The rest of their college crew and friends. It added even more to an already fantastic story. Then the steam. Oh.My.Gosh! The hotness factor in this book. I loved every. single,  I needed to fan myself moment of it!  

These are my favorite kinds of second chance romances where a widower/widow and children are involved. This book talked about it,  but didn’t harp on it to the point of depression. This book was fun, hot, hilarious and sweet. It was perfect. I definitely recommend it. 

⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐-This was the BEST second chance romance. It was sweet and Hot, funny and just perfect it had the absolute best secondary characters. I loved Zach’s kids. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- HOLY HOTNESS! That’s it! Just whooo! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy! Y’all are going to love this HEA as much as I did.I just know it! #PERFECTION
