The Back-Up Plan
Just how legally binding is a promise made on a cocktail napkin?
Second Chances, Book 4
Kristen Grey has always been married to her work, but as her fortieth birthday looms, she begins to wonder if that’s all there is to life. When her friend Zoey suggests she come up with a goal for a second chance at happiness, the first idea to pop into Kristen’s mind falls out of her mouth—to find a husband.
One night, after a few too many shots of vodka, it falls out of her mouth again, in front of the last man she wants to hear it. Her annoying, cocky law partner, Jason Mitchell. She’s shocked when he vows to help in her quest to find a man.
After all, he has a vested interest in her success. Years ago, they foolishly made a pact that if they hadn’t found “the one” by age forty, they’d marry each other. Time is running out.
Problem is, as Jason and Kristen try to help each other find love, it becomes more and more apparent that maybe the back-up plan isn’t such a bad option after all.
Warning: The heroine in this story has no objection to how her law partner likes to recess. Legal eagle? Nope. Spread eagle.
If you haven't been introduced to the Second Chances series, RUN, don't walk to snag a copy. Mari Carr writes the kind of romance the average woman wishes for. Real women, strong women, women who need their female friends and have jobs and lives. And real men, who screw up, who think with the little head sometimes, who know how to make amends. Add in the best friends anyone could ask for and you have the makings of a very good, very real contemporary romance.
Kristen and Jason have known each other for years. Founding their law firm after being best friends through law school, they make an unusual pair. Approaching forty together, their pact made one drunken night long ago to marry each other if they are still single at that age, Kristen finds herself pushing to meet her goal of finding her future husband. Jason has chased skirts his whole life and finds his past is cramping his future's style. Who knew the perfect girl was right by his side all along? Who knew the straight laced legal ace was an undercover dirty girl? Who cares as long as they finally figure it out, right?
I just adore coming back to Ms. Carr's townhouse complex of really awesome women and their second chances at love, happiness and new beginnings. The perfect read for a spring day, The Backup Plan will curl your toes and warm your heart. Don't miss your chance to revel in Second Chances!
