Theo MacLeod wasn’t supposed to be the one.
Tall, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just pretend.
He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.
My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.
We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.
One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.
We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.
But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.
I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.
All he has to do is stay.
Jen and Roxie’s Review
Melanie Harlow is a pretty new to us author. When we read the synopsis for If You Were Mine, we knew we had to read it. And we were not disappointed. Melanie gave us the perfect blend of swoony and steamy with a dash of angst. Add her signature humor and wit and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Claire is a teacher, hoping to find the perfect man eventually to share her life with. But for right now all she needs is a date to avoid the dreaded singles table at her friend’s wedding. What’s a girl got to do? Hotties4Hire.com sure sounds like the perfect plan to find Mr. Perfect for a couple hours. Problem solved, right……
Enter Mr. Cocky, holy hottie, Theo had as swooning from the very beginning. He was irresistible yet complicated. With a tragic past that shaped his life choices and questioning his self-worth.
From their very first “let’s meet before the wedding so it’s doesn’t get awkward” coffee date, the sparks are flying.
They both know there is more. But what is more? Is it one night? Is it a friendship? Or is it happily ever after?
“Why couldn’t life be more like a storybook, where fairy godmothers granted wishes or handsome princes needed saving from shipwrecks or stable boys turned out to be the one?”
Theo’s past sweeps into their present, slowly poisoning his hopes and dreams as he fights against his self-built walls.
“I was so afraid to fall that I never let myself fly…”
This couple was everything we love in books. They have an incredible connection, off the charts sexual chemistry and just the right amount of obstacles to balance the sweet with a little heartache!!!
We can’t wait for more from Melanie Harlow. She is definitely an author we will pick up on the future again.
