The things you love most are the hardest to let go of.
When Matthias Phillips imagined the new caretaker for his mother with ALS, the last thing he had in mind was a gorgeous twenty-something who didn’t look like she had a day of experience in the field. However, his mother has always been stubborn, and despite his objections, she’s insistent: she wants him to hire no one other than Adelaide Samson.
After losing her job, Adelaide needs a new gig to continue supporting her family, even if that means working for overprotective and rude Matthias. Once she earns his trust, though, she gets to see a whole other side of him-a funny, sweet, and sensitive side. A side she might start to like.
Feelings take hold, but soon, Adelaide must choose between helping Helen with a secret task or being honest with Matthias. Caught between the woman who feels like a second mother and the man she’s falling for, Adelaide must navigate the murky waters of a job that has started to feel like home.
