Three years after a highly public accident and subsequent banishment from the sport, former professional triathlete Sara Jo Ramsey is still fighting a painful injury. Holed up in her beautiful but run-down estate, Sara lives alone, interacting with the outside world only when absolutely necessary.
When her best—and only—friend announces she’s getting married, Sara’s days of hiding abruptly come to an end. Before she knows it, Sara is pulled into a world of engagement parties, bridal showers, and bachelorette extravaganzas.
But the thing about weddings? They tend to bring up old memories. Memories Sara has spent ages trying to forget.
If only she didn’t need to be the maid of honor.
If only the best man wasn’t restoring her estate.
If only he wasn’t so damn attractive.
Gavin Harris has always been alone. By choice. But even the greatest of man-whores needs a best friend, and when Gavin’s friend proposes to his girlfriend—without telling him—Gavin’s previously ordered life is unexpectedly and unpleasantly uprooted.
Watching his best friend marry turns out to be harder than he’d imagined, especially when, as a wedding present, Gavin agrees to take over as the head contractor for a major restoration project. The house itself might be a restorer’s dream, but the woman inside? Not worth the headache.
If only he hadn’t agreed to be the best man.
If only he didn’t have to fix the maid of honor’s house.
If only he hadn’t spent two years avoiding her.
