Jessa Landers has a crush on her teens’ swim coach but is hoping no one notices. On her own following her husband’s death three years ago, she’s managing her life and enjoys her freedom–except for those long, lonely evenings when she craves the company of an attentive man.
Coach Rick Grant loves his job as high school teacher and volunteer swim coach. But being surrounded by other people’s families has him yearning for a romantic connection of his own. His attraction to Jessa has grown with each swim match, and he’s finally ready to make his move.
Rick is spontaneous, energetic, and years younger. When he declares his obvious romantic interest, his take-charge attitude pushes the boundaries of Jessa’s controlled world. Will she protect the balance of her family life, or take a second chance on love?
