There is something exciting about a person who compliments you in every way. Where you are short, they are tall. Where you are quiet, they are the life of the party. Being different allows you to experience things that are outside your comfort zone and you might just find that you love it!
In Mindy McKinley's latest release features a couple who couldn't be more different in every way but love. TOUCHING DOWN is the final book in the Chase Family series, featuring the oldest brother in the family, the one who has always been the responsible one. But maybe it's his turn to take a chance.
A chance neither expected.
A risk too great to chance.
Ready to make a new life for herself and her eight-year-old niece in their grandmother’s home, Callie Jones feels like things are falling into place. As a fiction editor and full-time parent to Sylvie, the new, safer neighborhood gives her a chance to breathe. At least until she meets her new neighbor—the enigmatic, serious, scorching hot Carter Chase. She sees right through his grumpy outer shell to the man who always seems to be there to help when they need it most. Single for longer than she’d like to admit, Carter tempts something deep inside her, but when Sylvie’s birth father returns to demand custody, the perfect life she’s trying so hard to build is threatened and her chance with Carter will have to wait.
Completely devoted to his job as CEO of his father’s charter jet and helicopter company SkyChase, Carter Chase has little time for anything else. He doesn’t mind—it’s his calling, plus a difficult college heartbreak assured he’d never take a chance on love again. But when his gorgeous new neighbor and her outgoing young niece start to turn his world upside down—he can’t remember why he never took time for himself. Ready to take a chance with Callie, everything falls apart with the return of Sylvie’s father. Can Carter convince Callie that he can be the man they both need?
A Wonderful Opposites Attract romance featuring a sassy preteen and adorable dog is just the book you need to curl up with. What’s better than a sexy man who knows what he wants? Fans of Melissa Foster and Tracey Brogan will love TOUCHING DOWN.
CARTER: Hey, I was just wondering how Sylvie is doing. I hope she’s feeling better.
This man. Callie bit her lip as she typed out a reply and snapped a picture of Sylvie stuffing a giant handful of kettle corn into her mouth, eyes glued to the screen.
CALLIE: The medicine worked great. Her fever broke around 1 am. Now we’re in a blanket fort watching Moana for the one millionth time. Thanks for checking on her and thanks again for the helping out last night.
She felt her breath catch as she sent off the text and the pic and stared at the conversation like a middle school girl waiting for her crush to respond. When the conversation dots appeared, indicating that he was typing again, she very nearly let out a squeal.
CARTER: You’re welcome. I’m so glad she’s feeling better. She certainly looks like she’s recovered. Love the fort.
CALLIE: It was the only way I could convince her to stay inside for a full day. She’s surprisingly hard to say no to.
CARTER: Sounds like she takes after her aunt.
Callie sat up. What was this now? Was Carter flirting? On purpose? She didn’t think he knew how.
CALLIE: I’m sure I don’t know what you mean.
CARTER: I think you do.
Body thrumming, Callie didn’t know how to respond. She bit at her bottom lip like it could somehow help her figure out the cleverest thing to say.
CALLIE: So, you’re saying that if I asked you for a cup of sugar, it would be hard for you to say no?
CARTER: Something like that.
How far should she take this? She had a feeling that if she didn’t go for it, it would never happen. Something in Carter made him afraid to take a risk with her, but he clearly wanted her to.
Sylvie would be with Rhonda and Trevor this weekend, leaving her with some rare free time. “Fuck it,” she whispered, just quiet enough that Sylvie didn’t hear her.
CALLIE: So, if I ask you to come over for dinner Friday night, while Sylvie’s away, it would be hard for you to say no?
Blood rushing through her body, Callie took a deep breath, bit her lip, and went for it.
CALLIE: Will you come over for dinner Friday night while Sylvie is away?
CARTER: Yes—see, it is impossible to say no.
