Midnight Kisses by Alexa Rivers
He’s big, grumpy, and nursing a wounded heart. She’s the smitten small-town sweetheart. After years of waiting, it’s finally her time to make a move.
Emily Parker has loved Justin Simons from afar for as long as she can remember. Even his being engaged to her high school nemesis didn’t stop her from yearning for him. But everything is different now. The other woman is out of the picture, and she’s finally ready to make a move on the only man she’s ever wanted. Surely she can convince the sexy, stubborn grouch to open up his wounded heart once more, right?
The last thing Justin wants is love. He’s been down that road before and has the emotional scars to prove it. The invite to his ex’s wedding? Salt in the wound. But thankfully Emily is willing to be his plus one and help him prove that he’s finally over his broken engagement. Now all he’ll have to do is ignore his overwhelming attraction to the gorgeous woman who seems so determined to bring sunshine and joy into his life.
Can Emily convince broody Justin that love is worth the risk? Or will he let happiness—and Emily—slip through his fingers?
