BARRETT LANDRY has it all. 
Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician’s life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction. 

ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress.
As a single mother to HUXLEY, she’s rebuilding life on her terms. She’s focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can’t be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.


A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost ... and sometimes, even for love, it’s a price too steep to pay.

Mayor Barrett Landry has it all, and with his current campaign for the Governor's seat just within his grasp, the last thing he needs is a distraction.

Well, this particular distraction comes in the form of a single mother named Alison Baker; her life hasn't been easy, and the biggest obstacle she faces now, is how to conform her to new life with her eleven year old son Huxley.

She isn't looking for a man, let alone a relationship, but when she meets Barrett, there is just something about him that she can't ignore, however, she does put up a pretty good fight.

What I really enjoyed about this story was seeing Barrett willing to sacrifice everything that he is for the woman he can't seem to function without.

Well written; great story plot; smart, sexy and sassy characters is what you'll find in this story. I've definitely got my eye on Adriana Locke.

This is the first book in the Landry Family Series, and Barrett has some pretty amazing siblings that you are introduced too.

Book 2 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... is about his fun-loving, baseball playing brother Linc, due out later this year!!!!
Cue the 'swoon' gif :)

Excerpt


“I want a chance to win you over,” he breathes, peering at me. The way his eyes search mine make it seem like time stands still. “Will you let me try?”

He forces a swallow and the look of hesitation, the internal fight he’s having, isn’t lost on me. It’s there, right beneath the surface, and when I add my concerns to the mix, it’s enough to make me balk. Just a bit.

"I'll think about it," I whisper, holding on to the little strand of courage I have left.

“Say yes.”

Instead of responding, I ask, "Where'd you get that scar over your right eye?" I reach out and press gently on the raised skin. I expect him to pull back, but he doesn't.

My hand shakes as I touch his warmed skin. His forehead is silky and smooth. I'd like to run my hands over every inch of it, feel it ripple beneath my fingertips.

The corner of his lips twitch. "Lincoln hit me in the head with a baseball."

"Bad reflexes on your part?"

"Wicked curveball on his," he says, his face breaking out into a full smile.

“I thought he played center field?”

“He does. But he pitched some growing up.”

We stand inches apart, my hand gently brushing down the side of his face. Although I feel like he'd stand here all night and talk to me, it’s not possible.

"I really need to get back to work," I say, trying to unlock my eyes from his.

“Dinner? This week?”

I can barely resist the look in his eye, the one that implores me to say yes. The one that makes me believe he really does want to have dinner and spend a few hours with me.

I need to get away, put some space between us while I can.

“We ran into each other tonight,” I shrug. “If we’re supposed to see each other again, then I guess we will.” I start to turn away before I completely buckle under his gaze.

“How am I supposed to get ahold of you? I don’t have your number,” he calls after me.

Heading up the steps to the Savannah Room, I glance at him over my shoulder. “You’re the Mayor. Figure it out.”
