DEBUT AUTHOR OF THE YEAR
Ronnie Jones is busy trying to juggle the demands of a new construction business along with the demands of being a single mother. After the death of her husband, six years ago, she’s sworn off relationships. Who needs to deal with the hassles of dating anyway? She’s around sweaty construction workers all day. She’s not easily impressed. Especially not with cocky Vic Romano. From the moment the ex-con walks into her office looking for a job, he rubs her the wrong way.
All Vic Romano needs is a break. He’s served his time and he’s ready to work towards a new beginning. He has his sights set on the foreman job at Three Sisters Construction. Unfortunately, he gets off on the wrong foot with co-owner, Ronnie Jones. His hopes are dashed before he can even get his steel-toed boot through the door.
When fate intervenes and their paths cross again, Ronnie realizes she may have misjudged Vic. The fact that he’s damn sexy and he makes her panties melt doesn’t hurt either. Every time the two get together, the sexual tension is hotter than fireworks on the 4th of July. Vic is confident he can break through Ronnie’s tough exterior, but Ronnie will have to look past the mistake he made years ago to appreciate the man he is today.
Is this a disaster waiting to happen? Or could it be the blueprint for love?
