Title: Loving Callie
Series: Lucky Strike Lovers #1
Author: Julia Jarrett
Genre: Contemporary Romance (meant to be lovers/first loves)
On tap at the Lucky Strike Pub… One gorgeous doctor, and one hot bartender. Can they ignite a passion that will last?
First love is forever love for Doctor Callie Scott and pub owner Jake Evans. When fate gives them a second chance to get to know each other, the sparks fly, but Callie finds it hard to trust their chemistry. Jake won’t let her get away again, so when she comes into his bar again, he knows it’s meant to be. He just has to prove that to her.
But Callie’s parents have different plans for her love life, plans that suit their ambition and not her happiness. Jake will have to work hard to get her to see that he can be the family she has always longed for. Breaking free from family expectations will not be easy for Callie, and it will take a terrifying crisis to show her that the one thing more important than her parents approval, is the steadfast truth of Jake’s love.
Jake’s low voice sent shivers down Callie’s spine when he said, “Let’s get out of here. Ryan can handle things out there. I need to get you home and in bed so I can tear your clothes off and feel all of you in my arms.” He paused to tuck her hair behind her ears lovingly. “So just one question. Your place or mine…” Callie replied with the truth that came straight from her heart. “Haven’t you figured it out yet? Home is wherever you are, Jake.”
