Description:


Before you get down on bended knee… 


…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes. For ten years, Connor O'Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she's got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it's the perfect time to get married. 



When he pops the question, however, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother, who's now living with her full-time, and a great career after years of waitressing. What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. Besides, with her difficult past (and reputation), she's positive married life isn't for her. 



But this time, Connor says it's all or nothing. If she doesn't want to marry him, he'll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he's never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jessica isn't quite as sure as she thinks…

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Connor O'Rourke and Jessica Dunn.  Connor has had a very long history with Jessica Dunn which began when her brother's dog attacked Connor and the dog had to be put down which made Jessica's brother despise Connor.  When Connor decides he wants to marry Jessica she rejects him flat out!  What Connor didn't know what is would take a whole lot of patience and understanding to win the affection of Jessica and her brother Davy who was born from an alcoholic.  Which created all sorts of problems.  

This book goes everywhere we get to listen to the joking between Colleen and Connor.  Watch as Jessica learns to trust people and find a way to let her brother prove his independence and let Connor love her.  Even if it means admitting to herself that she loves him in her own way.

Such a great series to go and see what everyone is up to and whose having a baby now.  I really enjoyed catching up with the Hollands as well as the O'Rourke family!
