Bribing Isa to keep the puppy was the most dangerous decision of Bryce’s life…


If there’s an emergency, don’t call Isa, has become pastry chef Isa Garcia’s family motto. When she finds a puppy in a thunderstorm, she decides she’s done being the butt of the family jokes. Petrified by the fluffy bag of teeth, Isa will do almost anything to overcome her fear and prove to her family she’s reliable.

Dog trainer Bryce Kelley doesn’t want a partner for Elf Hollow’s Obstacle Course Wars, but the Town Council refuses to let him enter the fundraiser as an individual. Isa, his best friend’s ridiculously dramatic little sister, needs his help with her new dog, and bribery will get him what he needs. Too bad she makes his heart race and his palms sweat for all the wrong reasons.

A distractible puppy, barbed wire crawls, and an over-protective best friend can’t stop the growing attraction, but they have secrets they refuse to share. Will they win the race and earn their happily ever after? Or will the truth destroy the greatest prize of all?
