Rough cut diamond Tristan has seen his share of hard times, so he cannot fathom why he is so drawn to straitlaced Brina who drives him nuts with her sunny optimism.
Most of his life Tristan carried a secret that created a chasm between him and his father, and nothing he did, neither his Army medals nor the money he’d sent home to help his struggling parents, could change that. A helicopter pilot who is more comfortable in the air than on the ground, he now owns a high-priced shuttle service, has no problem finding women to warm his bed for a night, and is sure he will never again fall prey to believing in happy endings.
Brina wants the world to be a happy place. Between her nursing career and Three Girls Roasting Company that has become a friendly coffee shop hangout for the community, she is doing her part to make that happen. And when the renowned surgeon she is dating starts talking about planning a future with her, it seems like all her dreams are about to come true. Only problem is Brina’s not sure she really loves him—something she never thought to question until the annoying, cynical and smoking hot Tristan Denning comes back into her life.
A look. A judgment. A string of words. Bitter rivals and sworn enemies have been around since the beginning of time. But make no mistake, once the spark is ignited and the fuse is lit, the fine line between love and hate will go up in flames. So stand back or cross over, but be prepared to strap in for the ride.
