What if the one time you didn't want love was when you truly needed it?
Forced to flee her abusive ex, alone with no support, Elle is determined to rebuild her life and protect her five-year-old son. Not one to take the easy road, she opens a bookshop café, but opening day almost ends in disaster. In the midst of this chaos, the last thing she needs is a man as charming as George Jones getting in her way.
George has always been a sucker for a damsel in distress, and Elle ticks all the boxes. But Elle's not interested in being rescued by anyone, especially not him. She knows her taste in men can't be trusted, but fighting George's charisma is harder than she expected. And George, who is not one to ignore an itch, has found there's something about Elle that's got under his skin.
When Elle's ex turns up to cause trouble, George must overcome his boyish flirtatiousness if he's to convince Elle to trust herself and let him into her life. But can Elle put her past behind her before it overwhelms her present?

Once I started this book I couldn't stop. Boston's writing is captivating with well developed characters and a well thought out plot. The characters were likeable and faced real world issues such as poverty, domestic abuse, and stalking. The characters had practical and appropriate responses to the issues they faced. It is also clear Boston did research so the police responses were accurate. Boston wrote very strong mother and son characters. My only issue with the book was how quickly the romance developed, but at least the time span was in months and not days like other romance books. While this book could be read alone, it was nice to revisit the characters in the previous books of this series. Overall a very enjoyable read that I would recommend.
