On Our Shelves Now
"A heartfelt opposites-attract romance..." --Publishers Weekly
Total opposites. Totally irresistible.
Mickey Chambers is an expert at analyzing modern literature. But when it comes to figuring out her own story, she's feeling a little lost. At thirty-three, she's an adjunct instructor with a meager summer class schedule and too many medical bills, courtesy of her chronic illness. Picking up a bartending gig seems perfect. Sure, Mickey's never done this before, but the gorgeous, grumpy bar owner, Diego Acosta, might be the perfect man to teach the teacher...if he wasn't so stressed.
Diego is worried he's running his late wife's bar into the ground. Add the pressures of returning to college part-time at forty-two, and it's no wonder he's making rash decisions. Like hiring the sunny, sexy woman who looks more at home in a library than slinging beers to rowdy barflies, and who turns out to be teaching his online writing course, a complication neither was expecting...
It's not long before Mickey starts reenergizing The Saloon with cocktails, karaoke and an optimism even Diego can't ignore. They need to fight their feelings if they want to keep things professional, but all it takes is one sip, one kiss, to shake both their worlds forever...
