Jesse's Girl

A novel by

Can good girl Mary Clare find love with bad boy Jesse as her perfectly crafted world comes crumbling down around her?

Stay-at-home mom Mary Clare has her country club life upended during her divorce. She decides to return to her small hometown of Mills Crossing with her young son for the summer to sort out her life. Bad turns to worse when she realizes her ex husband mortgaged her future leaving her with little financial means for the future.

Bad boy Jesse Thorpe has always lived life on his own terms. Yet, he abandons his successful motocross business on the West Coast to care for his ailing father in Mills Crossing.

When Jesse and Mary Clare cross paths at a family party, she is immediately reminded of how she crushed on her big brother's best friend back in high school. The attraction is mutual, but Jesse only does flings. Mary Clare is definitely not fling material. And neither have plans to stay in Mills Crossing long term.

Despite their mutual determination not to get attached, they find themselves drawn together as Jesse takes Mary Clare's young son under his wing and shows him the love and attention Mary Clare's ex never did. A casual summer fling is inevitable.

Just when they find a bright spot in an otherwise dark time in their lives, life and family responsibilities tear them apart. Can Mary Clare and Jesse find a way to find love and happiness beyond the waning days of summer?
