I have to stop this. It can't happen.
My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he's probably unavailable.
Only Pike Lawson isn't the unavailable one.
I took her in, because I thought I was helping.
She'd cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.

I love Penelope Douglas's
books. They are always so messy and I can't get enough. The opening
chapter takes us to watch a film with the birthday girl, Jordan. Her
boyfriend isn't answering the phone and she gets off work early. Jordon
finds a friendly movie buddy and enjoys a treat. Little does she know
the end of the film is the start of a rollercoaster.
birthday girl is actually fairly mild for Penelope Douglas's books, but
it doesn't disappoint. It's wrong but so right. Pike is the only man for
Jordon, but getting to the happily ever after is going to be anything
