Thanks for the likes and shares, folks! Here’s a paragraph from the first conversation between the hero and heroine, Jeremy and Natalie:
[Jeremy to Natalie] “You saw me drooling on the footpath.”
He offered a small smile. “Let’s start over. Hi.”
“Let’s not. Goodbye.” She spun toward the door.
“Is that my phone you’re holding?”
Natalie turned back.
He breathed a small sigh of relief. “What are you doing here, anyway?”
The phone flew his way. He fumbled it against his chest, one-handed.
She crossed her arms. “You still had me as your emergency contact, and I couldn’t reach Steph or Mike.” Her eyes flickered down. “I wasn’t sure about calling your dad.”
Hating Jeremy Walters
Natalie Groves was meant for great things. Preferably youth ministry with a side gig as an M&M connoisseur.
But half a year after her fiancé left, Natalie’s evangelist father was diagnosed with cancer. Her grand plans evaporated…and God has seemed disappointed ever since.
Six years later a church internship presents Natalie a chance at her destiny, but she needs a job to work around it. And the only offer is worse than a life sentence of tofu.
Six years ago, Jeremy ‘Jem’ Walters left Charlottesville, Virginia to escape his father, God, and heartbreak over Natalie.
Now he’s back in town, a committed Christian, and desperate for help with his infant son and troubled teenage niece.
When Natalie and Jem join forces, sparks fly. But will they be burned in the process?
