But little does Emmi know that she’s about to meet her match in Leo, the reluctant best man. Leo is a polar opposite to innocent Emmi. He’s flirtatious and dirty, and he likes making her blush.
But that’s not the only thing he likes. Leo can’t deny that he’s catching feelings for the beautiful and sweet maid of honor. But after getting off on the wrong foot with her, he’s not sure that he’ll be able to win her back.
And yet, as the festivities commence, Leo and Emmi begin to realize that they have more in common than they thought. And before they know it, they find a spark growing between them.
Will the wedding romance get to them? Or will they go their separate ways?

Full Book:



“Ms. Emmi,” a little voice says, tugging on the bottom of my dress. “I have to go potty.”

I glance down and find Sara’s big blue eyes looking at me. Freckles stretch across her cheeks and warms my heart. “Okay, honey. Go ahead.”

She quickly goes running across the class toward the bathroom.

“Sara, walk please so you don’t fall and get hurt,” I call out to her.

Almost instantly, her feet slow to a fast-paced walk as she finishes her journey to the bathroom.

I absolutely love my job as a care provider. I got my degree in child care a couple of years ago. It was perfect timing because a good friend of mine, Aria, just opened up her own day care here in town. And in my opinion, it’s the best day care I’ve ever seen.

Being in childcare classes throughout high school and college, I’ve been in a lot of different day cares, but this one beats them all. We have several classrooms for different-aged children. We offer classes for the parents and children interested. We have our own cafeteria and cooking staff, along with a big fenced-in playground. Being close with Aria, I got to pick which age group I wanted, and I chose the grade school–aged kids. The nursery room can get a little overwhelming when all the babies and toddlers decide to start crying at once. The few times that’s happened when I’ve been in that room, I didn’t know where to start. Those girls in there have their hands full.

The group of older kids don’t need much at all. They mostly just need attention to keep them from getting into trouble. That leaves those girls in there with too much time on their hands, and they often end up sitting behind their desks and talking all day. One of them even brings in their homework since she’s taking business classes at night. As far as I’m concerned, my class is the best. We have kids starting in kindergarten all the way up to intermediate school. For the most part, they’re old enough to know right from wrong, but they’re still young enough to want to do arts and crafts and have playtime. I get to be much more involved, which is perfect for me. I can’t stand sitting around and being lazy.

I hear the classroom door close, and I look up to find Aria walking over to me. She looks down at the children sweetly as she passes them. She looks so proud that her little dream has come true and is doing as well as it is.

“Hey, what’s up?” I ask, closing my laptop on the top of my desk.

She sits on the chair next to my desk. “I wanted to ask you something.”

“Okay, shoot.”

“Well…” She takes a deep breath. “I’m pregnant,” she confesses.

I gasp as my brows lift and my eyes widen. “What? That’s amazing. Congratulations!”

She smiles and nods. “It is. It is amazing, and Noah and I are super happy about it. I mean, we weren’t expecting this so soon. We were hoping to hold off a couple more years, you know? But we’ve just bought a house and finished moving into it last weekend. Now we’re starting to remodel it, and on top of it all, we’re planning a wedding.” She lets out a long exhale that visibly makes her shoulders fall.

“Wow. Don’t believe in doing one thing at a time, huh?”

She laughs. “Well, we were trying. We had a five-year plan. We haven’t even paid off his business loan yet, so getting pregnant sent him into a spiral. I’ve always told him that I wanted us to have our own place before trying for kids since my apartment was so tiny. It wasn’t even big enough for the two of us, so trying to bring a baby into that wouldn’t have been ideal.”

I nod, understanding her cause for concern.

“So he ended up finding us a really good deal on a house in the mountains. It’s beautiful, it really is. It’s in great condition. It’s old, so it was built right, you know? It’s just sooo outdated.”
