He’s nobody’s definition of Mr. Right—but that might make him perfect.
Matthew Hart is heir to the family fortune and owner of Hart & Home. When a near-death experience has him fretting over the future, he decides he needs a husband, and not just any husband—an appropriate man to protect the Hart legacy. The last thing Matthew expects is to cross paths with Jax Foster, his first love and the boy who crushed his heart when he disappeared.
Jax is unlikely to make Matthew’s list of suitable candidates. Bad boy, vagabond, deep in debt, with a father who can’t keep out of trouble, Jax has nothing to offer—except his heart and a second chance at the romance they never got to explore.
This is sort of a “Cinderfella” story about a guy who thinks he’s not worthy finding himself in a position to not only fall in love with the boss, but also save the company.
There’s a little bit of a “second chance” story here too, and some hurt/comfort as Matthew struggles with his father’s “legacy”.
While the writing was fine – Charlie is a gifted writer – the story left me fairly cold. I didn’t like how Jax saw himself or how long it took him to see himself as valuable.
It’s a quick and easy read, with a nice HFN, but it wasn’t my favorite by this author.
(Not to be too shallow – but the cover of this would have put me off. If it wasn’t by Charlie Cochet, I’d probably have skipped it….)
