Publisher's Summary

It's New Year's Eve...and now or never for these two hearts.
When a woman with no faith in love meets the quintessential nice guy determined to breach her mile-high walls, sparks fly as both fight a decidedly unwelcome but equally unavoidable attraction.
Steph Hargrove was a bombshell, a sexy, intrepid woman operating in the business world with guts, brains, and daring. She was accustomed to going after whatever she wanted, until a man she called a friend betrayed her and the company she'd helped build - and nearly killed her in the process. Since that time, she's been a shadow of the wild, wicked woman who'd carved a swath through her world.
Gavin O'Neill is an artisan with wood, a gardener, a restorer of battered homes, and a savior of strays. When first he meets the wounded woman who postures as invincible and worldly, the sadness in her eyes draws him even more than her lush figure does. However she insists otherwise, he sees that she needs the kindness and friendship he can give to her while he's waiting for the woman of his dreams, who will be small and soft and sweet, different in every way from the woman he keeps returning to see.
Yet while he's not interested in the virago, and she refuses to be nurtured, a potent attraction keeps them circling each other. And while they're busy listing the reasons they're unsuited, something powerful is growing between them. 
New Year's Eve is for lovers and new beginnings.... Will these two stubborn souls take the risk?

Can the carpenter get the corporate woman?

Steph is strong, confident corporate executive. She does not do relationships...only flings. She does not believe in love and marriage after witnessing her parents’ disastrous union. However, all of her friends are married or about to be and the match making begins. She’s introduced to Gavin, a down-to-earth carpenter from TN. While the attraction is there, Steph will never allow herself to settle into a relationship for fear of hurting the other person. She and Gavin begin a cat m mouse game. Will Steph give in and give Gavin a chance, or will she push him away?
This is a quick, sweet read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Jean did it again

Steph was one of my favorite characters in previous books. It's great that she gets her HEA. Gavin is determined and hard headed, which is what an equally determined and hard headed woman needs.
Great book, and Eric knocks it out of the park again.
