He’s her best friend’s twin brother, trouble from the start….
Even with the prospect of leaving for New York to pursue his art career, Ares can't stop thinking about his sister's best friend Nikki. Really, he's been thinking about her since they moved to their little town after the divorce and remarriage when they were twelve. But he can't tell if she's been thinking about him too, underneath her waitress smile and flirty personality.
Nikki has a dark past, her present is bleak, and she's pretty hopeless about her future. Most of her energy goes to staying out of her mom's way, making sure her little brother stays out of trouble, and the bills are paid. As much fun as he could be, Ares is just a midnight snack of a fantasy and she doesn't need the complication.
Until he asks to kiss her.
River is a young, single mom, trying to balance motherhood, her love life, being a daughter and work.
