Scott Coldwell veteran network news reporter hires Jessica Cormier to make his Maine cottage accessible for a handicap person. Working with Scott has been great for Jessica's career not to mention he's drop dead gorgeous but he would never be attracted to someone like her so she keeps her one sided feelings to herself. On Christmas when Jessica takes Scott on a walk through of the changes she's made to the house she soon finds out its not a friend, wife or lover that Scott is adjusting the house to accommodate but for himself. He was recently diagnosed with MS and is getting the house ready for when he needs more assistance getting around. Scott plans to live life alone in the middle of nowhere-- so he won't be a burden to anyone.
They both realize as they become stranded together for the night because of a huge snow storm that they have feelings for each other beyond employer/employee. Through some miscommunication Jessica believes Scott is trying to let her down easy but when he confesses his true feelings for her their love blooms and grows.
This was my first book from this author, it was sweet, emotional and sexy all at once. I really enjoyed reading it and definitely recommend.
Jessica Cormier thought it was strange for someone like Scott to have a house remodeled to be easy access for someone that was in a wheelchair/handicap. She had not clue the burden that was weighing Scott’s mind.
It was funny that Scott and Jessica had it bad for each other. They had no clue that the other like them. Things get hot and heavy between Jessica and Scott. Scott puts his foot in his mouth from time to time. He feels so unworthy of her and just does not know how to put that into words.
I like how the story alternates between Scott and Jessica doing the telling. Scott is in love with her but he doesn't want to act on it because he feels his future is uncertain and wouldn't want to burden her with his care. He does a great job of mucking things up with Jessie.
Read this great short story for yourself to find out how Scott gets out of his predicament.
I purchased a copy of this story in the Red Hot Holidays boxed set.
Scott hires Jessie to design a cabin that is fully equipped with a generator, Jacuzzi, a ramp, and other amenities a person who might need help getting around would need. Only Jessie doesn’t know that the cabin is for Scott himself.
Scott is in love with Jessie and vice versa, but Scott refuses to let Jessie waste her time with him. He knows his time is limited and doesn’t want to bring Jessie down.
“And I want you to remember, we’re all on borrowed time.”
A very true statement. No one really knows when their life is going to end. The only thing we can do is grab on to what or who we love and live life to the fullest. Scott and Jessie are a great example at doing exactly this.
Home Bound is short but beautiful!
