If she trusts him, she can have it all…or lose everything.
Between working her day job in the city and tending her father’s small-town bar every weekend, Haley Miller can’t remember the last time she had a date. When she trips over a stack of her dad’s unpaid bills and into the man of her dreams, she knows the night is guaranteed to be the best of her life…or the worst.
Seth Gardner returns to Regret Hollow to save his family’s business from their landlord’s financial mismanagement. The chance to finally act on his crush on Haley is a bonus he’s not about to turn down. But if he waits too long to confess his secrets, he’ll lose her trust and his chance. Just when Haley thinks she can have the love and the life she always dreamed of, she discovers everything was built on a lie. Seth will lose her unless he can guarantee a lasting love built from nothing more than their fantasies.

This is the 3rd book in The Bad Boys of Regret Hollow series. These books just getting hotter and hotter. This one felt a little rushed for me but overall it was a very interesting read

“I have the missing ingredient. Chocolate martini lovers, gather round,” Haley called out from across the room.
Seth clicked off the phone and switched it to silent. He’d never be the life of the party like Haley, but he wasn’t anyone’s burden anymore. Time to crawl out from under the counter and stand so he could confront her like he’d planned.
“I’m gathering! Don’t even think about putting that half-and-half in the mini-fridge,” another female proclaimed.
Haley’s shapely legs sauntered around the corner straight for him, while his own legs refused to budge. She stopped in front of him, and he braced for the inevitable question of what the hell he was doing sitting on the floor under there. But she didn’t look down, simply concentrated on organizing something on top of the counter.
Her absolute immersion in the bartending duties hurt. As fast as they’d come together in the kitchen, she’d moved on just as quickly. Other women recognized Seth had something to offer, but the one woman who revved his libido into overdrive never gave him a chance. Maybe she deliberately didn’t check under the counter because she expected her fantasy lover to be there, and on the site, he’d stupidly requested not to be identified.
Tomorrow, he had to work with Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Mike to find every bit of legal ground they could stand on to keep the pizzeria open. Monday, he’d file motions and countermotions and fight with every avenue available to save their livelihood.
After all these years of ignoring him, Haley wasn’t going to suddenly look at him like he was relationship material or even hookup material. But he had an opportunity right now to drop his boring good-guy image and do something shockingly wicked. If her biggest fantasy was to come while she poured a bunch of drinks for people, then he’d give her an orgasm she’d never forget, even if his balls turned blue and she never believed he had enough bad boy inside him to be worthy of her notice.
