Since the first moment I met her, I’ve been pushing Meg Kennedy away.
I have to for both our sakes – but man, is it tough. Meg’s the wildly ambitious BFF of Mia, my best friend’s girl, and those blonde curls, blue eyes, and killer curves of hers turn me on like no other woman I’ve ever met. Meg’s feisty, funny, and has a heart the size of the ocean. Being around her is intoxicating.
Which is precisely why she’s got no business being with a guy like me.
As proud as I am of the work I do running the kitchen at Brothers Pub, that’s about as far as my career is ever likely to take me – and every time I’m around Meg, she just reminds me that I’m stuck where I am, when the only direction her life and career ever seem to take her is up.
But when Meg turns up at my front door one night, three sheets to the wind and flat on her back, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that there’s trouble in paradise. It turns out that this high-flying girl has just as many secrets and insecurities as I do – and when she finally starts opening up to me about them, it’s difficult not to do the same in return. For some reason, despite how different our lives are, there’s a connection between us that can’t be ignored.
But our lives are headed in very different directions – and it’ll take more than just a connection for Meg and me to ever have a chance of being together. If we really want to make this work, we’ll both have to overcome our demons and do the toughest thing of all: Just believe.
