A reluctant bachelor and an accidental bidder—The perfect recipe for romance? Or disaster?
Cara Marconi promised to bid at her town’s charity bachelor auction, but never with any intention of winning. So, when she bids too high and wins her best friend’s brother, she’s a little freaked out, and clearly, he is too. The last time they spent any time together before he left town, she sort of launched herself at him. It was a kiss to remember, and one she’d give anything to forget.
Justin Riggs was expecting to take a nice old lady out to dinner a few times, not worry about hurting Cara when he leaves again. Of course, that’s not exactly how their conversation goes after the auction. He may have called her out on her crush on him… and added some other accusations that will live to haunt him forever. Now, Cara thinks the worst of him, and he’s realizing too late that he’d like a lot more than her forgiveness.
Cara’s stuck. By winning Justin, she’s also won the marketing headache that goes with it. As much as she’d like to Photoshop their heads together and call it good, the town expects to see them out together having fun. So, Cara has a plan. She’ll friendzone the heck out of him, hide her heart where he can’t reach it, and conquer this crush by the time he leaves after Christmas.
Rating: Mild. Mild crude humor; mild kissing.
