The fifth book in The Coffee Shop Series
Once upon a time, I thought my stutter was the worst thing that ever happened to me. But now I know better.
Being held at gunpoint outranks a speech impediment any day.
Thankfully, my longtime crush Jayson Hernandez tackled that problem to the ground with those broad shoulders—the ones that make my stutter oh-so-much-worse.
As if he hasn’t held my heart in his strong, capable hands ever since I adored him from the shadows in high school. Or every day he comes into the coffee shop with a new date. Or each time he shoots me a friendly smile that makes my toes curl.
Then he proposes something so insane it’s my heart that starts to stutter. And I can’t turn him down, even though I want to.
Because there’s a part of me that still believes I’m Cinderella too.
And oh, how I want him to realize he’s Prince Charming after all.
My friends are the best guys anyone could ask for. They’ve always had my back.
Except . . . they’re pretty hard to impress.
The last thing I want to do is let them down, especially when the first of our group of four is getting married. I can’t show up to that wedding by myself, but I don’t have anyone to take with me that could gain their approval.
Enter Dagny Taylor.
She’s quiet, reads people like a book, and isn’t afraid to say it like it is—when I can get her to talk, that is. I’ve done some pretty wild things in my life, but now I’m about to do the craziest thing yet.
Because there’s a princess hiding beneath that thick armor, and I can’t wait to find her.
That is . . . if she’ll let me.
