2019 RITA® Award Finalist
Tanner Harlow is a talented landscape designer, quietly building a name and a solid future when he finds himself needing to be the temporary guardian to his eleven-year-old half-sister. Tanner loves her, but can’t see himself as a father figure or imagine how he’s going to build his business during his busiest season with a child in tow until his newest client—his high school crush who still makes his heart pound—has a proposition that will help them both as long as Tanner can resist the tempting lure of the girl next door.
Elementary school teacher Francie Tate moved back to Marietta to be close to her ailing father. She plans to settle in and fix up her little bungalow before the school year starts, but definitely needs help with the neglected yard. She’s shocked when the landscaper she hired turns out to be a class mate. Tanner used to be shy in school, but he isn't the same kid anymore–he’s tall, sexy, and has the most striking brown eyes she's ever seen. When Francie learns of Tanner’s need for child care, she impulsively offers to watch his half-sister for the summer in return for some landscaping and renovations around the house.It seems like a win-win, but Francie didn’t bargain on falling in love.

The plot is great, the characters are great, and there are some masterfully written passages as well. An all-round terrific book.

Francie is a shadow in her own life. She cannot stand up to her mother, cannot say no to anyone or anything, even if it is something she doesn’t want to do, nor is she honest with herself. She is weak.
Tanner, who has the good sense to know his limitations and understands the balance needed in regards to starting a new landscaping business, versus his ability to raise his 12 year old half sister, seems obsessed over Francie’s ex, the high school bully who made his life hell.
He has fairly good reasons to be that way after how Guy treated him but it is Francie’s inability to say no, or tell someone to get lost, which she readily admits to knowing is her major flaw, is what causes these feelings and concerns for Tanner.
I wanted them to act like the adults they were supposed to be.
Maddie was a sweetheart but we never got to meet his two brothers. They never made an appearance. I am left feeling I have no reason to read more in this series.
