About the Book:

Emily Birmingham has had it up to here with men.
Growing up with an overbearing father and then her brother inherits everything she’s worked her whole life to build. Now she’s living in her grandmother’s dilapidated house in the middle of nowhere Canada, jobless, and dealing with the most annoyingly sexy contractor on the planet. Exactly when did her life become an anti-Hallmark movie?
Cooper Merrick learned the hard way that love is definitely not worth the risk. He’s happy running the family contracting business alongside his well-meaning but overly-opinionated brothers…happy enough until polished and perfect Emily enters his world. Nothing prepared him for the ways she turns his life upside down and reaches the parts of himself he’s closed off from the world.
But when he finally gets up the nerve to ask Emily out, she says her next date will need to come with a written contract and some very particular ground rules. Yeah, it sounds crazy, but why does he find himself wanting to sign on the dotted line?

My Review:

This is another great contemporary romance from this talented author.
Emily Birmingham has always worked hard to earn approval from her parents and is devastated when, following their untimely death, she doesn’t inherit half the family’s hotel business she’s worked so hard in, instead it is all left to her bullying brother. She is left her grandmother’s home which has been shut up for years and is now in desperate need of renovation. She decides to invest her money in creating the large property into a boutique hotel and make a fresh start. That’s how she meets the Merrick family as they’re the builders working on the renovation. Cooper Merrick is a widower not looking for love but the attraction between him and Emily is magnetic. However, she’s wary after how the men in her life have treated her and only agrees to go out with Cooper if he agrees to sign a contract setting rules for their relationship. He agrees and the stage is set for a touching, sweet romance.
Sometimes you just want to escape into a lovely, easy to read and engage with, story and that is just what this is. The characters have experienced drama in the past and are wary of what the future for them might hold if they risk their hearts. Their relationship development is beautifully and poignantly portrayed, making it a pleasure to escape into this book. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys warm, well written, contemporary romances and hope you enjoy the surprise at the end as much as I did!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
