Contractor, Cade Owens, handyman extraordinaire to every last granny in Heritage Grove, is content with his quiet life. This means keeping himself single, much to the befuddlement of his best friends and grandfather. Cade's newest remodel has more problems than just a leaky roof. The owner is demanding, a bit entitled, and throws one hell of a punch. But Ansley stirs a passion in him for more than just sawdust and drywall.
Ansley Grant is done nursing her wounds from a failed relationship. She has big plans. They start with settling into Heritage Grove and opening her own cafe. Her house is a dump, but with the help of the local contractor, she will whip it into shape. If Cade wasn’t so sexy, brooding, and an all around asshat, she could concentrate on her work. He might be her knight in a toolbelt but she's not about to let Cade sweep her off her feet.
With the coldest winter on Texas’ record books and siding ripped off the house, Cade insists Ansley stay in his guestroom. A deal is made and Ansley is suddenly playing house with her lickable contractor, who is as mouthwatering as whipped caramel frosting.
