The Scale

cover

Minka Greene is trying to get her life together.

She’s struggling with her weight, her nonexistent love life, and a million other imperfections. Worse, her twin sister is marrying the man she’s been secretly pining over. And she’s the maid of honor.

What else could life possibly throw her way?

Enter Jason Montgomery, the best man.

Mesmerizing blue eyes. Sculpted, ink-covered body. And absolutely dangerous.
He has the power to strip her bare and leave all her insecurities exposed.
But he’s making her feel things she’s never felt before.
And she could use a distraction.

Jason wants Minka Greene.
Her sweet sensuous curves, not her heart.
Life is complicated enough without the stress of relationships.

It was only supposed to be a tryst. How did feelings get involved?

And, why is it so difficult to let go?

If smartass carpenter Adam Hennessey hadn’t stood up Charlie Grant over a year ago, he might not find himself on the other side of a slammed door. But when Adam volunteers to repair Charlie’s deck as a favor to a friend, that’s exactly where he finds himself. Does he regret standing her up? Yes. Does he find the cynical, sarcastic sports journalist unbearably sexy? Also yes. Does she hate his guts? All the yes.

Charlie’s not the forgiving type, especially after a broken heart in the past has left her jaded, but she can’t deny that Adam, with his beard, tattoos and panty-melting smile (oh, and muscles–can’t forget to mention the muscles) might just be winning her over. With a second chance on the line, Charlie will have to decide if getting nailed by the smoking hot carpenter is worth the risk.
