Mindy’s Review:

*I received this book free from Netgalley via Loveswept.*

Jonas Reeves is ready to settle down. Running a bar and having a friends with benefits seems like all fun and games until Jonas discovers he has real feelings and wants to move in a more serious direction. When he brings it up Caitlin wants nothing to do with it.

Caitlin Pappas has a commitment phobia. Now that she has lost the benefits that she had with Jonas she gets to watch him try to move on with his life.

Jonas and Caitlin remain friends even though both still have feelings for each other. Caitlin does her friend a favor with a new dating app that he is programming. She has agreed to go on dates to meet new people. Although she wants to stay safe due to some personal issues she decides to meet all of her dates at Jonas’s bar.

Jonas gets the idea to join the app and try to get the one woman he wants back.

This was a fun read.
