Publisher's Summary

Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back...more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome - but cranky - neighbor and his adorable little girl....

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship - a job he desperately needs - awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the bar exam. Sawyer doesn't have the time or patience for the capricious - if beautiful - dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene's easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he's resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.

When the parents of Olivia's absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.

Contains mature themes.

Great Book

I really enjoyed the story and enjoyed having two narrators, one for the man & one for the woman...just wish they'd both narrated it a lil different... have the man narrate all the man parts & the woman do the same.

I LOVED IT!!! I WANT MORE!! LOL

This was a wonderful story, not your typical single daddy story,,,this one had a little twist to it!! Sawyer the Lawyer and Darlene the Dancer...mix in Livvie and you got a great emotional story of 2 people meeting when they needed someone most, and how understanding, acceptance and love is all tied together!! I laughed, cried and couldn't put it down,Caitlin Kelly gifted me this one on request by me, because she is just wonderful like that..I love her work..and I also love Greg Tremblay...they both were amazing in this one..and I will be adding it to my relisten pile!!! LOVED IT!! AND I RECOMMEND!!!!

Beautiful!

This story is so very real. People like Sawyer and Darlene are around us all everyday. It was very poignantly written and both narrators did a fine job of keeping me captivated until the very end. I look forward to more from Emma Scott.
