Darci Denton never expected walking dogs on the side would turn into a viable business. Now that it has, she is finding it harder and harder to balance dog walking with her full-time job as a waitress at the Sand Pit. Nor did she expect when she handed her business card to a hot guy with a beagle that she'd not only fall in love with the adorable pup, but with the single dad and his son too.
After his child's mother went to the store and never came back, Theo Evans only goal in life is to protect his son, Noah, and give him the best life possible. He doesn't go out and he definitely doesn't date, but when he hires Darci to help take one thing of his to-do list and walk his dog, Buddy, he can't deny the instant attraction he feels for the sweet brunette.
As the attraction grows, neither can deny their feelings, but will Theo be able to break down his protective walls and accept Darci into his family? Or will his resolve to protect his son from heartache result in his own broken heart?
