A woman and baby walk into a bar…
It might sound like a joke, but saloon owner Dylan Kavanagh knows it's all too serious. Struggling single mom Mia Larin needs him. She helped him when they were young, and the bachelor means to do everything in his power to protect Mia and her child. Giving her a job, a room under his own roof, is easy. Keeping it all about business isn't….
Dylan is a successful, eligible catch, but are Mia's feelings just a case of hero worship? Or will she still need him, still want him, once her circumstances change?
I wasn't sure what Mia & Dylan's connection would be-I thought maybe they had been in a relationship in the past or that he had chased after her and she turned him down. I was surprised to find that she had been his tutor & that he had actually been a jerk to her in the past, which was one of the reason he claimed to be helping her now that she was a single mom, without a job. As much as the two tried to deny it, there was more than just chemistry between them! I love how Dylan feel in love with the Mia's daughter right away & so did his family, although I was annoyed with how his mom was a little judgmental about some of Mia's decisions.
The one thing that did annoy me was how Dylan was always thinking of himself as not good enough for Mia, simply because she was smarter than he was. He even does some damage to their relationship because he is to stubborn to believe that she might actually want to be with him. Thankfully he is able to salvage things in the end!!
