“I’ll take them!”
Those were the words that escaped my lips when the social worker informed me that my pre-K student and his baby brother were in need of an emergency foster placement. The thought of the brothers being separated was unbearable, and I was willing to do anything to prevent that from happening. However, my apartment was flooded, leaving me with only one option for a temporary home—his place.
Knox Daniels, my older brother’s best friend, didn’t hesitate to offer his new house. He wouldn’t be returning to our small town until next month, when our hotshot firefighters would gather to rebuild our fathers’ fallen and iconic crew.
It shouldn’t matter that I’ve harbored a silent love for Knox since our childhood. It can’t matter that we’ve both pretended that reckless kiss on prom night never occurred. And it won’t matter that pursuing my feelings for him could jeopardize his lifelong friendship with my brother and the certification of their esteemed firefighting team. After all, I’ll be out of his house long before he returns.
Except, to my surprise, Knox just walked in… a whole month early. And to add to the awkwardness, I’m covered in baby puke while he remains as handsome as ever. He takes one look at the boys and assures me that we can make this work—we can pretend to be in a relationship temporarily to keep them from being torn apart by the system.
Suddenly, everything matters.
