Cara has an admitted problem with hot men, falling so deeply and so quickly under their spell that she loses a little bit of herself with each toxic relationship that always seems to end badly. Every man in her young life thus far has let her down – her high school sweetheart, a college fling, and most of all her self-centered playboy father. She’s determined not to be a sucker for a handsome face and a hard body any longer, and has stuck to her guns for more than two years. And then she meets Dante.
Dante knows he has no business messing with cute little Cara. For one thing she works for his best friend, and more importantly she’s all kinds of wrong for him – too young, too innocent, too kindhearted. And given the mood he’s in these days – after the woman he was ready to propose to chose her career over him - a sweetheart like Cara should be running as fast as she can in the opposite direction.
But the only place Cara wants to run is right into Dante’s arms and stay a good long while. Will he wind up being the one for her – or is she destined yet again for another heartbreak?
Janet is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, and currently resides on the northern California coast with her husband Steve and Golden Retriever Max. She worked for more than two decades in the financial services industry before turning her focus to producing running events. She is a former long-distance runner, current avid yoga practitioner, is addicted to Pinterest, likes to travel and read. She has been writing for more than three decades, with her first book in the Inevitable Series - Serendipity - published in December 2013.
Cara's been worried for the past week that Dante is getting ready to break up with her, due to his uncharacteristic moodiness. Are her suspicions correct, or is it just her long list of insecurities that are making her concerned?
But she’d been sorely tempted every single day this past week to call him or send him a quick text just to see if everything was okay. It wasn’t like him at all to be as quiet and moody as he’d been last weekend, and Cara was skeptical that work related issues were really to blame. And maybe it was just her various insecurities - God knew she had too many of those to count! - or her tendency to overreact at times, but she had this horrible, sinking feeling that Dante was growing bored with her, and was ready to move on. He’d warned her, after all, from the very beginning of their relationship, that he couldn’t make her any promises or guarantees about how long this would last between them.
