No Time for Detours by Jean C. Gordon
What happens when you meet Mr. Right at exactly the WRONG time?
Ava Lewis can take care of herself. Thank you. If only she didn’t need to keep proving that to her well-meaning, but sometimes overbearing family. But now that she’s been provisionally accepted into NYU’s law school, she’s on her way to dispelling their doubts and making her career goal come true. There’s only one problem. To afford that goal, she has to make ends meet.
That’s where Nick Jansen and his unexpected job offer come in. When five-year-old twins are left in his care while their guardian goes off on a month-long honeymoon, he knows he can’t handle the rabble-rousers on his own. Ava, with her early childhood education experience, to the rescue.
After a broken engagement and repeated words of discouragement from his jaded mother, Nick has accepted that he’s meant to be alone—with the world better off for it. But as the kids warm to Ava, so does he, and he starts to feel some of the ice around his heart melting away. However, when Ava’s full admission to law school is jeopardized, Nick’s inherent need to fix things threatens her independence and her dream of carving out the life she wants.
What it will take to get Ava and Nick off their career-collision course and let love be their guide? Join them in finding the answer in this opposites-attract, single-dad sweet romance.
The No Brides Club is a fun, sassy, and heart-warming series featuring sophisticated women and the men they fall for.
