When the barista next door teams up with a slick ad executive in this sweet standalone novel from USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt, they both get a taste of unexpected love.
Terri Cooke wishes she could give Mick Wentworth a piece of her mind. The infuriating stud muffin walks into her coffee shop every morning expecting his regular order at 8:57 on the dot, without ever acknowledging Terri’s presence—except for staring at her cleavage. And yet she can’t deny that Mick Wentworth has an animal magnetism that’s stronger and richer than any espresso . . . which explains why Terri says yes when he suddenly, inexplicably asks her out.
After the morning coffee run, Mick’s day is all downhill from there. His family’s marketing firm is dysfunctional in more ways than one, so to save the business, Mick desperately needs to impress their newest client. When he learns that Terri’s a fan of their trendy product, he tries to get inside her head. It doesn’t hurt that she’s the barista he’s been lusting after for the past five months. But as things heat up with Terri, Mick finds that a little steam is just the jolt he needs to turn his whole life around.
(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)
This is about a struggling twenty-something, Terri, trying to take care of her sick brother. She quit her dream job to take part-time positions to have flexible hours to take her brother to his appointments.
With a father embezzling money from the company, a mother sexually harassing her assistant, a brother impregnating his secretary (not his wife), Mick has more than he can imagine. He is trying to keep the company together. A big client comes his way and he has to sell them on the company.
Terri sees Mick every day promptly at 9am every day for coffee. Terri secretly has a crush on him. Unknowingly to Terri, Mick has been fantasizing about her also. When an opening presented itself, Mick sees Terri. Mick and Terri have amazing chemistry together. They can’t keep their hands off each other.
There relationship is up and down throughout the story. Their families have a lot to do with their togetherness.
