We found ourselves by finding each other…


Left blindsided and hurt by my ex, I’m slowly making my way back to me, discovering what I want and how to be more than “just a mom”.

When Jinx comes into my life, I’m sure he’s exactly the reckless distraction I need. Only, he insists on being just friends…

Friends with a few benefits.


Reputations are hard to change. I know from experience. My family thinks I’m the kid who will never settle down and take life seriously.

Rachel is proof that isn’t true, yet I force myself to set my feelings for her aside to be the man she deserves. But when her past returns, I know it’s time…

Time to prove that the real measure of a man is in how hard he fights for the woman he loves.

If you’re looking for a swoony, slow burn small town romance that features a dirty talkin’ MMC and a single mom who is trying to find her true self, you’re going to love Jinx and Rachel!

The title of this book is absolute perfection with the journey that Jinx Enders takes from start to finish. He’s spent a lot of his life letting others believe things about him that are true, yet they aren’t the whole picture of who he is as a man. I loved seeing him finally step up and tell his brother exactly what he wanted, as well as how he stepped in for Rachel, Mason, and Emma. He’s been showing the small town who he is all along with his hard work that was off-the-books. After some difficult conversations, it was so heartwarming to see him take a stance as to the real man he is to his brother.

Rachel reminds me of myself and several of my friends who have previously been through a divorce. It hurt more to be left when we realize we should have been the ones to leave long ago. But she’s doing the best she can, keeping her head up to make things as smooth as possible for her children. Jinx steps in and begins proving to her that not all men are a-holes like her ex and earning the trust of her kids as well.

Molly McLain gives us yet another book that showcases her intimate knowledge of small towns. I felt like I was hovering over the scenes, getting a firsthand look at each moment. She can make anyone believe that love is out there for everyone!

About Molly McLain

Molly writes spicy small-town romance with lots of heart. Her heroes are typically blue collar with beefy forearms, and her heroines are stubborn backtalkers. Kinda like Molly and her husband in real life. She lives in Wisconsin, so it’s no surprise that she loves all things cheese, especially in cake form. She’s a cat and dog mom with a few human kids, too, and she has a day job. Writing happily-ever-afters is definitely her escape from reality.
