A sexy, hilarious, emotional, new romance from New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase.

Connor Daniels never thought he’d be starting over at dating square one. His career as a successful doctor, and his three boys, are everything to him. It’s not exactly a set-up conducive to a scorching love life—but he’s giving it a shot.

ER nurse Violet Robinson never intended for Connor to find out she’s had a crush on him forever. It was a dirty little secret only meant for her dirty dreams. Her heart trips every time he’s around—and so do her feet.

When Connor sees Violet coasting across the grocery store parking lot—and she falls on her face—he starts falling for the gorgeous, young nurse right back.

Dating can be tricky. And life can be beautiful and crazy and unpredictable. But when it gets real, you discover what matters most . . . and the one person you want loving you through it all.


As an NJ girl, I have a soft place in my heart for this book series. The “small-town” NJ feel is just heartwarming to me. I liked this book because it was mostly low drama until 80% in and by then, I was looking for some drama. Connor is a single dad with three boys, all of whom add depth to the story. He’s an ER doctor and has secretly liked one of the nurses, Violet, as much as she liked him. It takes a little while for them to get going and there are some misunderstandings but that made me enjoy the story more. I really liked watching their relationship develop and that this book allowed for that time for it to grow. The interactions between Violet and Connor’s kids were really cute too. Overall, this was exactly what I wanted from this book and I really enjoyed it!
