From the author of Hearts on Fire and Summer Again comes a sweet and sexy friends (with benefits)-to-lovers romance ...
Two committed commitment-phobes …
Cassidy Trevor is the backbone of her family’s quilt shop, the one everyone relies on, the person who makes the trains run on time. She has a good life with loving parents and sisters, a job-for-life that she enjoys, and respect as a capable businesswoman within the community. Still, she can’t help wondering … is there something more out there?
Matt Wolfe has spent his entire life living down to everyone’s expectations. He’s the body, the workhorse, the guy who always says yes. As a member of a firefighting family, he’s also seen too many people lose everything they hold dear within the space of a heartbeat. He knows it’s easier to let go of things if you never really wanted them in the first place.
… warned away from each other by their families …
The Wolfe and Trevor families aren’t the Montagues and the Capulets. Just the opposite. Both families have been close for years, but one love match between them is enough.
… strike a mutually beneficial arrangement
… When Cassidy and Matt are volunteered to co-chair a holiday event, their working relationship slides into a secret friendship … with benefits. Everyone gets what they want. Matt gets to sample the forbidden fruit he has coveted for years and Cassidy gets some much-needed stress relief from the pressures of running the family business while planning her escape from St. Caroline.
… and get more than they bargained for.
For Matt, a fling with Cassidy is perfect—the built-in expiration date means no messy breakup and no disappointment when expectations aren’t fulfilled. It’s perfect for Cassidy, too. She doesn’t want anything—or anyone—tying her down. But now the one person who “gets” her, who supports her dream to leave St. Caroline, is the one person Cassidy can’t bear the thought of leaving. And, for the first time in his life, Matt is discovering expectations he wants to live up to … his own.
Two of Hearts is the second book in the St. Caroline small town romance series … and a sweet, emotional holiday love story. If you loved Jack and Becca's story in Hearts on Fire, Two of Hearts is a must read!
