Emmy Carter is a hard-working, no-nonsense woman. She's focused only on supporting her family and growing her pie business. Working weekend nights at The Riptide is just something she does to help pay the bills. When it comes to men--or love--she's not interested. Since the day her surfer-boy husband walked out the door to find bigger waves, Emmy's been determined never to give another man power over her heart.
Cooper Davis agrees. He's been married--and divorced--twice, and he's got no desire to make it a trifecta. He has his carpentry business, which is his passion, and his teen-aged daughter to keep him busy. The posse, his best friends since boyhood, tease him about finding the right woman. But Cooper knows she doesn't exist.
When Emmy and Cooper share a casual hook-up late one night, isn't a big deal. It's just a one-time thing. Until it isn't. And although neither of them will admit to themselves or each other that they want more, each encounter only brings them closer to the happily-ever-after they never planned to have.
Like it or not. . .it's all part of The Plan.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own. This is book 2 in The Cove series. I loved this story and didn’t want to put it down. Tawdra is a very talented author and one of my favorites. Emmy and Cooper both have given up on love or so they say. I loved reading their love story. I understood Emmy on a more personal level. I was single for many years with a young daughter. I gave up on love and men. Until one day I decided I was tired of being alone. There is the perfect someone for everyone. You just have to weed through the frogs to find your prince or princess. I can’t wait until the 3rd book is released in August.
The Plan by Tawdra Kandle 5 stars Loving this series!! Emmy has survived divorce and pulled her life together to be a strong single mom that can handle it all. She's not focused on finding another man, but being alone for the rest of her life does sound lonely. Carter has been burned in his previous two marriages and doesn't believe he is destined for a happily-ever-after. As these two find they're attracted to each other, strongly, the sparks fly, chemistry heats up, and they are a explosive together in really great ways. The way these two evolve and grow is funny, and sweet. I really enjoyed reading this, and it could easily be another re-read.
