Maureen Evans has had a crush on Smith Harrington since they were in college together. She always knew he didn’t see her as anything more than his best friend—just one of the guys—but that didn’t stop her from weaving sexy fantasies about him.
Now, after years of maintaining a long-distance friendship, Smith’s moving to Burton, Georgia, Maureen’s hometown, to become her partner at the veterinary clinic. After all this time, she should be able to handle working with him without getting hot and bothered.
Or maybe not.
The more determined Maureen is to maintain their just-friends bond, the more Smith seems intent on testing those boundaries. And when flirting crosses the line into something more, it ends in a night neither of them can forget.
When friendship is no longer enough, there’s always love.

Isn’t this cover so cute? I think it really embodies Maureen, Smith, and of course the dog. We briefly met Maureen in the first set of Burton books (I’m so happy to be back in Burton) and even then I was interested in her story.
Maureen really hit home with me since I had the same situation with my now husband. She is oblivious to Smith’s feelings because she thinks there is no way that incredibly hot guy could care about her even though it is obvious to everyone around her that he did.
Maureen was naive and felt she wasn’t worthy for anyone especially someone like Smith, she thought she was forever friend-zoned. Sometimes we need someone to show us that we are worthy. Don’t worry, Maureen was never whiny and she is not weak by any sense. She has a veterinary practice, strong relationships with family and friends but she was unlucky in love. I loved how the book went back to show Smith and Maureen in college too and we got to see the feeling develop.
I pre-ordered this book like I do all of Tawdra’s books.
