From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,
I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I'm even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don't believe it's one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we're joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what's the purpose of this note? I guess it's a reminder that we're adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it's to let you know that I'm leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you'd like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don't.
Whatever you choose.
It's doubtful I'll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

I do love to read books by this duo, but it was the blurb that hooked me on this one. Once I opened the book and started reading the pages, I knew I would enjoy it. Come on ladies... British Doctor, who would not want to read about that?! The more I read, the more I enjoyed it, getting to know both Bridget and Simon... I had hope that these two would find happiness together.

The start of the book had me in stitches! The banter between Bridget and Simon was hilarious as well as the situation Bridget had herself in! I knew that when these two crossed paths again that it was going to be amusing!

Learning Bridget’s story and seeing how strong she was made my heart ache. She deserved to find someone to make her feel beautiful and treat her well. She had suffered so much, but learned to cope and grow. She wasn't sure what to do with her feelings for Simon and she was afraid to act on the connection they had. But a simple letter changed everything for her.

Simon had his own plans, however settling down and having a family wasn't really in his future. I could see that Bridget may be the girl that would change everything for him. The more time they spent together I could see these two finding happiness. But – there's always a but – throw in annoying parents and a twist that broke my heart and I had hope that they could still find their perfect together.

This was such an intriguing read, that I found hard to put down. I loved meeting the characters, watching them face their feelings and step outside their comfort zones. They had amazing chemistry and had more in common than they initially realised. 

This was such a sweet moment that melted my heart...

“ ...All the things that you probably think are negatives are actually the things that I find the most sexually arousing: your luscious, plump arse, the slight feminine curve of your stomach, your soft, natural tits. And on top of those things… your eyes—they slay me. Despite everything you’ve been through, they still shine with hope and wonder, whether you realize it or not. You’re beautiful, Bridget. Absolutely fucking beautiful and don’t ever believe otherwise.”
