Laurel Young needs a plan, and fast. After her reality TV boss has a major meltdown, not-so-fun employment seems inevitable--unless she can pitch the idea of a lifetime. When she sees Flint McKay's audition tape - flannelled, handsome as hell, and building a house with his own two hands - she knows she's found her secret weapon. The women of America are going to love him, especially if she can convince him to try building without the flannel shirt.
Only problem is, Flint didn’t make that tape - and he has zero interest in trading the wilds of Western Massachusetts for the bright lights of Hollywood. But Laurel isn’t the kind of girl to take no for an answer. Soon, she's knee-deep in rustic charm, and getting plenty of hands-on experience. And it turns out, this city girl and country guy may have a few things in common after all, like crazy hot chemistry, a wild side, and a weakness for good whiskey...
But can their behind-the-scenes connection last once the world falls in love with Flint? And will this be the big break both of them need- or leave them in the dirt?
Find out in Lila Monroe’s fun, sexy new novel!
*This is a stand-alone novel with HEA. No cliff-hangers!*
Flint's family business is a sinking ship and instead of going down with it like the Captain on the Titanic, Flint is considering selling out when an offer comes his way from Laurel Young, a reality TV assistant producer.
Laurel has been brainstorming fresh ideas that will help her prove to her colleagues that even in a man's world, she can be just as good as they can and she finds exactly what she is looking for when she comes across a submission by a sexy carpenter.
To save his family business, Flint is going to need to drop his pride and do what it takes to save what his family worked so hard for.
The chemistry between Laurel and Flint is absolutely intoxicating and apparent from the beginning. It's only a matter of time before the two of them give into one another but the past has a way of creeping it's ugly head in the present and their relationship will end up being tested under fire.
Can a boy from the country and a girl from the city make a relationship work or are they two different to have anything more than a fling?
