He wouldn't f*cking screw this up
Losing your virginity when you're older
When you call me babe or baby, I...
He's just a customer
A slow burn romance about loving and believing in yourself, as much you do the one you love.
She feels she doesn’t deserve him.
Millie could do this. Easy. No problem. So what if her former Hot Man Customer was now her current Hot Man Boss? So what if he also wanted to date her? With her terrible family and the burdens she carries, no way will Hector stay with her long term. He deserves someone better than her.
He feels he doesn’t deserve her.
Hector liked his Millie—his Amelia—since nearly the first moment they met. So what if she’s shy? He’ll wait for her. So what if her evil half-brother is making a repeat appearance? He’ll protect her. He’d never thought he’d be successful—not running a pub or being in a relationship—after losing his legs in the army. It’s been years and he’s still recovering, but he’s learned to live with his demons. He’ll work hard to make his pub and his relationship with Amelia a success, even if some days he doesn’t believe he deserves it.
What happens when they discover they’re both wrong?
When Amelia’s circumstances take a dangerous turn, Hector will do whatever it takes to help her, whether or not she wants it. Can they both overcome their fears and histories for a future together?
This novel features an older virgin and the disabled Army vet who wants her, a family made of friends that loves one another (even while they annoy each other), and a look behind fictional pub walls.
This is a standalone book in the series with no cliffhanger, and features sexy scenes and swearing. Emotional trigger warning: assault and abuse.

Far from the politics of the palace, follow this group of friends as they find love, support each other, and perhaps even meet a royal or two at the local Masillian pub, the Seashell.
