Jessie Bellin’s business is failing, her house is falling apart, and the mortgage is ninety days overdue. With nothing left to offer, she’ll take what she can get from the handyman who wants nothing but her body. But when Mike Kaminsky suddenly asks for more, Jessie has to figure out exactly what she wants—and if it’s possible for a woman who’s lost everything to learn how to start over.
This is a an achy dream of a short story.
It is set deep in the recession. The hero and the heroine each are struggling personally and with money. Dreams are dying.
How do you manage love in the middle of this sadness, helplessness, and hopelessness. How do you keep going, trust, and risk yourself again?
This is a romance with the kind of realism that only adds to the truth of power of connection at the heart of the romance genre.
