Parker Cruse despises cheaters. It might have something to do with her boyfriend sleeping with her twin sister. 

After a wedding day prank involving a strong laxative, that ends the already severed relationship between the twins, Parker decides to grow up and act twenty-six. 

Step One: Move out of her parents’ house. 

Step Two: Find a job. 

Opportunity strikes when she meets her new neighbor, Gus Westman. He’s an electrician with Iowa farm-boy values and a gift for saying her name like it’s a dirty word. 

He also has a wife. 

Sabrina Westman, head of a successful engineering firm, hires Parker as her personal assistant. Driven to be the best assistant ever, Parker vows to stay focused, walk the dog, go to the dry cleaners, and not kiss Gus—again.

Step Three: Don’t judge. 

Step Four: Remember— when life happens, it does it in a heartbeat.

Fantastic story teller

Jewel E Ann can weave a story so well. I got so wrapped up in the story and the characters. I felt like Parker would be someone I would really like to know. Jewel writes and developes a story like so few authors can. She has a maturity and a great sense of flow with her books. She can also write with humor, romance, angst and sorrow. I even learned about the heat cycles of a female dog! Jewel will always be a the type of my reading list. We'll done!

A must read!!!!

Whew! This book just rocked my world. Hands down the best book I've read in 2017. It's hard to review without spoilers. This book is so full of emotions. Parker is in her twenties trying to find herself. Still living with her parents in her hometown in Iowa. She's just looking for some independence. This book is full of wit, angst, some tears, and happiness. I went into this book not really knowing what to expect and it grabbed me from the first page. Absolutely beautiful story. Read this book!! If I could give it more than five stars I would!!

All the feels!

Ahhh! This story gave me ALL the feels! I loved these characters so much and the banter is amazing. It has a great story line, beautiful characters and banter that will have you laughing out loud!
