Until mommy dearest blows into town to "help" her clueless daughter seal the deal.
Cole Bowen is experiencing a world of firsts: first time in love, first engagement, first Valentine's, first in-laws. He's found the woman of his dreams, so he figured dealing with Martha Sheridan was a small price to pay. That is before his monster-in-law plants herself in their home and inside Christy's head, stirring up old demons and destroying her newly regained self-esteem. And while his hands are full with trying to neutralize their meddlesome guest, a mysterious phone call turns his world upside down.
With ghosts from the past resurfacing and threatening to tear Cole and Christy apart, can they make it to the wedding they both so desperately want, or will heavy secrets send their relationship to the breaking point?

This one picks up with Cole and Christy enjoying their engagement. Cole is planning his first ever Valentine’s Day and it’s going to be exactly what his nerd-girl will want. Christy’s psycho mother has come to visit and is systematically breaking her down. When Cole grows distant, she is left to fight for what she wants and to stand up for herself like she’s never done before.
I love, love, loved this novella. It has everything you would want and then some… let me just say there are more secrets than you see coming. This is a must read for anyone following the Bowen series! And if you haven’t already read the series —- do it! Five Sexy Stars and Five Drenched Panties!
