About the Book:

Brady Davis is as happy as he is charming. Usually. Unless he’s in the same room with the frustratingly gorgeous antidote to his cheer. Mia Kendrick is headstrong and determined. She’s done with men who stand in her way—even if he has arms like Thor and a smile that makes her dizzy. Whenever they’re together, sparks fly—both the bad and good kind.
When Mia returns home to take over management of Kendrick Place, Brady is worried her focus on big business could be the end of his tight-knit home and the family he’s created there. Mia may have the power to change everything, but Brady could have the power to change her mind…if he can get inside her heart.


He tossed both helmets in the bin and joined her as they walked toward the counter. She meant it. Her smile nearly vibrated with excitement.

Smiling with her, he asked, “You ever test the limits with your Lexus on the open road? See how she handles?”

“Not really. Not past the freeway limit anyway.”

“You oughta do that. Bet she drives like a dream.”

“You keep calling my car a ‘she.’”

He stopped walking and turned to her. “Your car is a she.”

She bit her top lip, drawing his attention. “No. My car is a machine.”

Meeting her gaze, he told her seriously, “A beautiful machine. A she.”

Mia laughed. “Okay. If you say so. Is your car a ‘she’?”

“Of course,” he replied.

After getting back their licenses, Brady bought a huge bag of popcorn and a couple of colas.

“Racing makes me hungry,” he admitted when he joined Mia at a small table she’d sat at.

“Really? Winning does the same thing for me,” she said.

All he could do was grin. This was a different side of her for sure. One he hadn’t expected. He took a seat across from her. “You’re a little competitive, princess.”

She took a handful of popcorn and popped one kernel in her mouth. “I like to win. And you can’t call me that now.”

He took a sip of his soda. “Which is a shame. It suits you.”

Her mouth scrunched up like it was filling with unpleasant words. He laughed. “Don’t look at me like that. I meant it suits you in a good way.”

“Well, you’ll have to just use my name now. I won fair and square.”

Arching one brow, he took a handful of kernels. “I don’t know about fair and square. You did deke me. But, you won, so I’ll have to come up with a new nickname.”

She laughed. He shoved a handful into his mouth, watching her eat one piece at a time. She ate like a princess. Looked like one, too.
