Just as free-spirited bookstore employee Cleo Davis faces closure of her beloved shop, the owner informs her it will continue as part of the successful Stephens chain. When the chain's risk assessor, the very reserved, very attractive Mark Stephens, enters the store to look over her business plan, Cleo clashes with him right away. Oil and water have nothing on them.

Mark has always followed the rules. But the minute he steps into vibrant and spunky Cleo’s store, he knows he’s in trouble. One moment he’s in her “craft corner” painting bookends with kids, the next in a bidding war with Cleo at a charity auction. He can't deny that opposites attract, and Cleo’s vivacious personality has him rethinking his life in more ways than one.

But when Cleo’s store officially becomes part of the bookstore chain, Mark will become her boss…and completely off limits.

Praise

A sweet and cute romance that made me smile and root for the characters.” -Anna G., Goodreads

“What a nice, and sweet romance. It was very enjoyable to read it in this cold winter day. When I started reading, I was glued to my kindle and simply had to finish it in one sitting. I liked every part of it.” -Marija L., Goodreads

This story has such a sweet, feel good vibe to it. The whole time reading it, Mark and Cleo pulled on my heartstrings. You pull for them from the beginning because they are both genuine, a little lonely, and they meet the internal need of the other perfectly.  This is a clean romance full of heart, a little sadness on their family dynamics, but a sense of hope.” -Lori G., NetGalley

“This book was so cute. It is the first book I have read from Viv Royce and it definitely won't be the last.” -Rachel P., NetGalley

I love the quirky people and situations in this book, and watching the characters grow.” -Patty A., Goodreads
