Uptight actuarial, Kerry Newsome, is stuck with jury duty and finds herself up close and personal with her old high school crush, the sexiest man she’s ever met. Between the courtroom case of a woman suing a sex toy company and her hormones, she’s having a hard time keeping her hands off blue-collar Bryce.
She’s beginning to wonder if maybe the juror questionnaire is better than eHarmony.
Bryce McCoy lives in a holding pattern, work, eat, sleep, with an occasional fuck. A car accident killed his father thirteen years ago, leaving his mother in a wheel-chair, and McCoy’s Mechanics to run. As the oldest, Bryce took over and doesn’t regret the man-of-the-family role, but he sure doesn’t want to do raise a family a second time. Casual sex keeps things simple, his life on track, and then along comes Kerry, the smart quiet girl with the killer smile that was too shy to ever talk to him. Now she’s a professional, brilliant and sexy, and is willing to take him just as he is. Who knew jury duty could be so rewarding?

Format: Kindle Edition
Kerry & Bryce have known each other since high school & while she always had a crush on him, she was a nerd & thus so not in the jock’s league (or so she thought). Bryce was also secretly crushing on Kerry, but he was older and had plans to join the Marines after high school so he left the socially awkward genius cutie alone. Fast forward a decade and they both end up sitting on the jury of a very steamy civil lawsuit. And it turns out that the mutual attraction is still there & now they can do something with it. Will Kerry & Bryce give in? Will it become something more than a fling?
This story has a little bit of everything: Nerd/Jock, second chance (kinda), a little military thrown in, relationship phobic hero conversion, courtroom drama (hahahaha), etc. The only thing missing was the secret baby. But even with all of that going on, it’s still a very streamlined, enjoyable read.
I’m looking forward to reading more from these authors.
