Dentist Junior Atkinson left her tiny home town to see if she would fit in better in the big city.

She definitely didn’t.

Now she’s back, living in the house she grew up in, friendly with every citizen of the two-stoplight town. Things couldn’t be more wonderful. Well, maybe if her patients paid her regularly.

If there was an eligible man in a fifty-mile radius.

If she hadn’t just been told that a medical condition meant she had only a few more fertile months despite her tender age of twenty-eight.

Junior barely has time to digest this news when she finds hunky travel writer Griff Ross in her chair with a hell of a toothache.


For a free eBook I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the storyline, though the relationship moved pretty fast in hind sight and I’m a little unhappy with the outcome, but you rarely get everything you want in books.

Griff was pretty arrogant to start off with and he kind of walked himself into this situation he finds so uncomfortable and I didn’t feel sorry for him at all. Plus the useless arguing he and Junior participated in was particularly annoying. Having said that Griff really grew on me. He had a serious re-assessment of his life and he grew as a person. Perhaps a little too dramatically, but I feel it was more along the lines of, he was more willing to try and things he’d previously thought were horrid and scary because he’d come to realise that he was able to deal with them far better than he’d ever thought.

Junior needed some work. She ended up being the most unbendable of the two and I found her attitude quite frustrating. Hopefully Griff can help her with that, because for all that she seems so full of life and colour, I don’t really think she is. Maybe she was once but she’s just lost it along the way. They are quite an odd couple now that I think about it and I’m not sure they actually spent a lot of time together, so perhaps their relationship is a little less reasonable than I first thought…
