About the book:
Romance author Jessica Kate explores the hilariously thin line between love and hate in her heartwarming new novel.
Samuel Payton is a passionate youth pastor in Virginia, but beneath the surface, Sam’s still recovering from a failed business. His coworker—start-up expert Kimberly Foster—is brilliant, fearless, and capable, but her mother’s rejection from a young age till now has left her defensive and longing for a family. Two people have never been more at odds—or more attracted to one another. And every day at work, the sparks are flying.
When Kimberly’s ambitious plans for Sam’s ministry butt up against his risk-averse nature, Sam decides that obligations to family trump his work for the church. He quits the ministry and flies home to Australia to help his family save their struggling farm—much to Kimberly’s chagrin. As Kimberly’s grand plans flounder, she is forced to face the truth: that no one can replace Sam. To what lengths will she go to get him back?
This was a very fun read! I really enjoyed it! I don’t usually read rom-come, but this one was great! I loved the Australian setting and Australian slang. The characters were very real and relatable. I definitely look forward to reading more of Jessica Kate’s books!
