Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author JoMarie DeGioia brings heat, heart, and humor in her Cypress Corners series of contemporary romantic comedies!
The guy who hides behind a cool mask
The girl who feels she can’t live up to expectations
An appearance of perfection...a very real passion
And a love that can see through to the inside
Corporate lawyer Derek Stone is respected and valued at Chapman Financial. Raised in a privileged world as the son of a highly successful Boston attorney, he's hidden the ugly truth of his father’s drunken abuse for years now. When he's offered a new job at Cypress Corners as in-house counsel, he sees it as a chance to keep his mother safe from his father. And maybe start a new life for himself.
Bree James ran from her own country club life a year ago when her grandmother passed away and left her financially independent. She's been living and working in Cypress Corners since, but has yet to begin her own life. She longs for something real to hold onto but doubts she'll ever find it.
Derek and Bree see a lot of themselves in each other, and neither wants to acknowledge their attraction. Bree maintains her cool facade while Derek fosters the stick-up-his-butt reputation that preceded him to Cypress. But that all changes in a second when he kisses Bree.
Can the two of them let down their guard long enough to see what's right in front of them? Or will their insecurities about the past keep them from their possible future?

Due diligence...

Derek is moving from his life in Boston & starts his new job as in-house counsel for a real estate development in south FL. He meets Bree, one of the sale ppl for the developer & feels the sparks. However, Derek has a past w an abusive father & does not let ppl into his life. Bree is also running from a ‘country club life’. With all of the baggage and insecurities that this pair is carrying, will they ever have an HEA? Throw in the abusive father stalking his ex-wife, nosy small town matchmaking and there isn’t a dull moment in Cypress Corners. Loved this fast paced, sweet read.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great romantic story.

Two people who raised in upper class families and who despises their upbringing are meet in small town in wok environment. The sparks fly between them right away but they both too afraid of relationship to acknowledge their feelings for each other. It takes family involvement to open their eyes and see the truth. This book has a few hot moment, some drama and a lot of romance.
Narrator did a great job and made this book very pleasant to listen. She is great in female and male voices.
