Publisher's Summary

Single mother Kyra Kokinos spends her days waiting tables, her nights working on her real estate license, and every spare moment with her precocious six-year-old daughter, Ruby - especially when Ruby won't stop pestering their grumpy next-door neighbor. At first glance, Dax Bishop seems like the kind of gruff, solitary guy who'd be unlikely to offer a cup of sugar, let alone a marriage proposal. But that's exactly what happens when Ruby needs life-saving surgery.
Dax showed up in East Beach a year ago, fresh from a painful divorce and looking for a place where he could make furniture and avoid people. Suddenly his life is invaded by an inquisitive munchkin in sparkly cowboy boots - and her frazzled, too-tempting mother. So he presents a practical plan: his insurance will help Ruby, and then they can divorce - zero strings attached.
But soon Kyra and Dax find their engagement of convenience is simple in name only. As their attraction deepens, a figure from the past reappears, offering a way out. Can Kyra and Dax let go so easily - or has love become a preexisting condition?

Sweet, heartfelt romance -- must read

This is a romance tale with an adorable eight year old in the mix. London does a great job creating enough tension yet letting the moments flood the feel-good zone. If you are looking for a nice listen that make you smile, this is the one.

I especially liked the narration which matched the story well. The plot was solid although there were some open minor issues left, but all considered. It is very strong.
