Summer Pierce is determined to date only nice guys. But when her latest prospect reveals himself as an alpha jerk in decent clothing, Summer doubts her ability to distinguish good from bad.
Especially when her hot, pierced, tattooed library patron with an aloof attitude ends up supporting her on her darkest day.
Could trusting a “bad boy” be a huge mistake?
Cole Allemand visits the library for the books, but he stays for the librarian. Summer is as bright and warm as her name, and luckily, she has a hero worship for authors.
While Cole works days at a local animal shelter, at night he’s putting the finishing touches on his novel. All he needs is a book deal, and the woman he’s been crushing on for months will be within reach.
Only, Cole finds he can’t wait for the publishing world to give him his go ahead, especially when he knows his past may push Summer away.
As the two form a bond outside of the library, Cole works to strengthen the connection with all the tools at his disposal, including serialized fantasy stories, adorable cats, and an in-depth understanding of the Dewey Decimal system.
When a mysterious stalker threatens the librarian’s safety, trust becomes the element that could turn their tale into a true romance or tear apart the fragile happy ending.
