Love is not on the drink menu.
At least not for Tiana St. Patrick as she nurses the broken heart caused by her ex after their sudden, unexpected, yet incredibly necessary break-up.
But when a generous stranger offers to jumpstart her healing process, and doubles down with a chance encounter at her business, she can’t help but wonder if his presence is worth something more than just a helping hand even though he seems to be exactly the type of guy she should be avoiding at all costs.
Kelvin Watson is a man on a mission. Between the lounge he co-owns with his big brother, and the ladies that frequent it, it’s no secret that he has plenty to keep himself busy.
Still, when a particular patron catches his eye and then manages to ease her way into his heart with her easygoing vibe and natural charm, he can’t help himself in pushing for something more. And when more turns into a discovery of past indiscretions, present reservations, and future obstacles, Tiana and Kelvin find themselves attempting to navigate their budding romance, in spite of it all.
(Note: This book is a spin-off of, Love at First Spite. While it can be read as a standalone, it does contain major spoilers for that title.)

"I had no starting point for my search except the basic identity questions I wondered about. Who was I? Where did I come from? Did I have roots? How did I fit into this world? And later on, had I bloomed, and could I help others bloom, too?
As a young child whom my parents adopted, I didn't understand the enveloped environment of secrecy and the lies that blanketed the facts of adoption in my family. Were my mother and father trying to protect me? If so, from what would they protect me? Was it the lack of confidence holding them back from discussing the issue? Or was it the fear I wouldn't love them? My parents never discussed adoption, mine or in general."
