Anthony Carrino loves his big, gregarious Italian-American family, even if his sisters are interfering, and his dad, the local sheriff, knows everything going on in town. He’s happy as a middle school guidance counselor. Despite helping kids and their parents fix their problems, Anthony can’t manage to get his own love life right. If only everyone would stop calling him the “nice” guy.
Dean Pierce doesn’t do relationships. A tough-minded military man, he is dedicated to his job as a Night Stalker, flying Chinook helicopters and not speaking much to anybody. He certainly doesn’t want to deal with a mess of emotions. But when tragedy strikes, Dean finds his hands full with his troubled niece, her irresistible guidance counselor, and a meddlesome family, which includes a rather large puppy.
A pleasure of a romance.
Anthony is the kind of hero I love. He knows himself, he is kind, and he goes after what he wants.
Our other hero is more of a work in progress but he gets there and is so there for Anthony that once he arrives, we get such a lovely Happily Ever After.
All the secondary characters are great including the middle schooler.
A good time is had by all.
