It's been months since Maeve Brennan has been on a date and she's coming dangerously close to giving up on men altogether—until she crosses paths with River Hill's handsome new barista, Ben Worthington. But Ben's made it clear he only wants to be friends, so Maeve will definitely stop fantasizing about his forearms. Probably. Maybe.
Former big city lawyer Ben Worthington never thought he'd be living above his best friend's garage and slinging coffee, but there's a lot about his life that doesn't make sense—like his attraction to the town's beloved do-gooder, Maeve Brennan. But since Maeve's made it clear that she doesn't have time for romance, Ben will stop dreaming about her naked. Soon. Eventually.
But when the youth center where Maeve volunteers is threatened by a developer with deep pockets, Ben calls on his legal past to fight fire with fire. He just hopes she can live with his take-no-prisoners attitude to winning, because he's pretty sure he can't live without her.
