After all, she’s not looking to fall in love again, and you can’t find what you’re not looking for.
In spite of his mother’s warnings about the sand running out in his hourglass, Devon isn’t interested in being anything other than a single dad. He’s already proven he’s not very good at marriage. When he meets Holly, he isn’t prepared for how his heart will respond. Since he doesn’t want to act on these very much unwanted feelings, his course of action is clear. There’s just one problem. How is he supposed to retreat when he’s surrounded?
