Local pub owner Jemima Jane Ericson is living a lie. She’s been in love with her best friend Ethan since forever. But he fell in love with another woman, married her, and despite their tempestuous relationship and decade old divorce, JJ knows Ethan’s heart is still down for the count. And friendship is better than nothing, right?
Single dad and Jumbuck Springs chief of police, Ethan Weston, hits the pub the night his ex-wife remarries and announces she wants custody of their daughter. When he wakes the next morning to find himself in JJ’s bed he’s mortified that they’d crossed a line they should never have crossed. Until JJ’s abusive ex, Shane, shows up at her door and Ethan claims he and JJ are engaged to protect her.
Both are stunned by the unravelling of their normally sane lives but suddenly it makes sense – JJ gets a deterrent and Ethan gets the respectability of a wife for any custody claims. But when JJ’s life is threatened, Ethan is forced to confront feelings that may just run much deeper than convenience…
JJ was that girl that breaks your heart! She has been in love with Ethan since forever and he has been completely oblivious to JJ and especially to JJ having or wanting a sex life. Those conversations were laugh out loud funny!
As friends, Ethan and JJ cross a line, but as best friends they know that protecting the other is more important than anything. JJ will do anything to protect Ethan and his daughter from Ethan’s worthless ex…and Ethan will do the same for JJ when her abusive ex shows up in town fresh out of prison.
I loved the banter between these two and I really loved that Ethan’s brothers took JJ’s back in wanting to protect her and her heart. But when the chips are down, the Chief of Police turns vigilante and nothing will stop in from protecting what is his…I love a uber alpha male in protection mode! Enjoy!
