The worst kind of heartache is the kind you can’t walk away from.
Jilted. Living in a glorified closet. The world’s worst bar waitress. I just need to keep a roof over my head and make tuition payments until I can finish graduate school. Then my real life will start. But right now, long nights at the Speakeasy have me burning the candle at both ends and the wax melting all over my fingers.
When a bar manager offers me a job taking care of his adorable five-year-old daughter, it seems like the perfect solution. I get a quiet place to study. Matteo gets a reliable sitter.
There should be no complications. Except that I like my new boss a little too much. His gorgeous dark eyes humble me, and the long talks we share fill me up inside. I can’t possibly fall for him.
But the undeniable pull between us leads to a scorching kiss I can’t ignore or forget, and suddenly I’ve fallen for them both, father and daughter.
And now three hearts are at stake.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
A sexy single dad. An adorable little girl. A smart and sassy leading lady...yes please Add in Safeguard being part of the Speakeasy world made picking this up a no brainer.
I just loved Matteo. How he did what was necessary to give his daughter, Lauren, the life she deserved. Even if it meant uprooting everything they knew and starting fresh somewhere new. It also meant meeting new people and no one stood out more to him than Melanie. She was just the sweetest. Especially the way she was with Lauren.
I loved the easy banter between Melanie and Matteo. The chemistry that they tried so hard to deny. The bubble of anticipation while I was waiting for them to give in to what they both wanted. The complications that arose because of it.
I loved the way Stephanie Rose blended her world into this one. It was seamless. Low-ish on drama and full of family, laughter and love, Matteo and Melanie's friends-to-lovers workplace romance was so charming and heartwarming that I couldn't put it down.
