Charlotte can’t move on with her future until she settles the remnants of her past. All she has to offer is The Good Neighbor Award, and Jake’s too much man to settle for that.
Jake thought about the kiss he’d shared with Charlotte in her bedroom. “About what happened back at the house…”
“It won’t happen again.”
His brow shot up in surprise. “What makes you so sure?”
She waited for the boys to pass. “I’ve got more than enough problems without getting involved.”
“Who said anything about getting involved?”
Charlotte’s head snapped up. “I’ve never been a one-night stand, and I’m not about to start now!”
The glare alone was enough for him to know he was skating on thin ice, but the razor edge to her voice was a real eye-opener. After all this time, he’d finally met a woman who didn’t play silly games.
“So you want to get married again?”
Jake could see his options dwindling away. All remaining was the good neighbor award, and he’d never been one to settle.
