Grant Davis has always been a risk taker. He takes care of everyone in his life. When he gives his younger sister the wedding of her dreams, he meets the woman of his. The Groom's mother. Just one dance with Abby and Grant knows that he needs to get to know her better.
Abby never thought that she would feel the attraction she feels for Grant, but it is ridiculous to even think of a relationship with her new daughter-in-law's brother. Grant isn't that much younger than her. At fifteen years older than his sister, it isn't like she's robbing the cradle, or at least not too much.
Before Grant can convince Abby to take a risk on him, Abby decides to spend one year in a teacher switch program. Grant wants more of Abby, but how can he convince her to stay with him.
I loved the characters in this book. Not one is perfect. Grant is works hard to take care of all his family. He works to get along with his ex-wife for the sake of his young daughter. Abby has raised her son and is ready to make some changes in her life. She takes her first motorcycle ride, scare to death but she's willing to take on the risks one at a time. This is definitely one that is worth the read.
The mother of the groom has three duties: show up, shut up, and wear beige. So why is Abby Roberts agreeing to a second dance with the bride's older brother, much less kissing him? After years of playing it safe, she's ready to expand her horizons--even accepting a teaching job in London--but is she ready for a sexy new man in her life?
Grant Davis agreed to walk his sister down the aisle, never expecting the groom's mother to awaken passionate feelings he thought buried. Since his divorce he's focused on his business and taking care of his daughter's special needs. But something about the way Abby holds her own makes him think this is a woman he wants to know better.
With Abby's departure looming, Grant has to work fast. Can he convince her to let go of past mistakes and take a risk on love?
