Lizzie Moran is desperate to help her best friend’s husband recover from grief-stricken despair after her friend passes away. But their love was unlike anything Lizzie has ever seen. A love she knows will never happen for her, considering the bad choices she’s made.
Jack Clark is ready to take whatever measures necessary to yank his brother out of the abyss he’s fallen into after his wife’s death. And when he meets the lovely Lizzie who has the same goal, he is perfectly willing to put aside their differences, for the sake of his brother.
Tensions escalate when Jack and Lizzie are forced to attend a reunion together—and the fact that Lizzie’s former fiancé, the man who dumped her the same day her parents died, will be there doesn’t help. But an unlikely matchmaker has a plan—and if it succeeds, Jack and Lizzie might just realize they are meant for each other.
“Ohmygosh, I’m so sorry.” Standing in front of him, a pretty blush spread on her lightly tanned cheeks.
“No problem…miss?” He backed up to give her space, shoving the front door closed.
“Lizzie Moran.” She held out a hand. “And you are?”
“Jack Clark.” He shook her hand, just skimming her knuckles with his fingers, a pleasant connection. So this is the famous Lizzie. Now he was sorry for not meshing.
Beguiling smile, tender eyes, legs even better close up. On the skinny side, but appealing curves where it counted. Plus she obviously cared about Charlie, and that meant a great deal.
“Oh. Jack finally.” She brushed her bangs out of her eyes. “Mari told me so much about you. Nice to meet you.”
She bent her head and surveyed the floor.
“Looking for your dog?” He turned toward the back of the house joining in the search.
“Ah, yes. Marty. Marty!” she blasted.
His ears vibrated. The dog tore from behind him toward Lizzie with jubilant owner worship yips. Lizzie scooped up the little dog and let her lick the side of her cheek unhindered. Made Jack want to be a Boston terrier.
“Cute dog.” He couldn’t help but look at those legs.
“Thanks. Where’s Charlie?” She nudged the dog away from her face.
“Taking a shower.” Finally getting Charlie up and about brought a smile to his face.
“No kidding?” Her deep green eyes widened to twice their size. “What did you do, club him and prop him up under the water?”
Jack laughed. “No. But it crossed my mind.”
She turned toward the open door. “I have to run. Tell Charlie I came back for Marty?”
“Sure,” he agreed following her toward the door.
“Nice to finally meet you, Jack. And, thank you for whatever you did to make the difference with Charlie. I’ve been knocking my head against the wall trying to get through to him.” She smiled and turned slowly toward the street.
“Same here.” He stood and watched her walk the dog down the block. Mari, bless her heart, might have been on to something.
Jack closed the door and headed to the den, Mari on his mind. She had hounded him to meet Elizabeth Moran because they had so much in common.
