Unlikely to Stay by Olivia Sherwood

Brant Billings has not had much sense of permanency in his life. Raised as a foster kid, he was bounced from home to home until Betty Billings, his foster mom, adopted him at the age of eleven. Facing a mountain of student loan debt after receiving his nurse practitioner’s license, Brant accepted a job at a clinic in the small town of Parker, Oklahoma. As long as he worked in the tiny town for three years, his loans would be forgiven. For a man with no attachment to anyone other than his adopted mom, he had complete confidence he would be walking away in three years completely debt free. What he didn’t figure into the equation was the woman with the cherry red hair and sapphire blue eyes who seemed to try and avoid him at all costs. Small town girl Colleen “CC” Chandler has always been used to fending for herself. Raised by hippie parents more focused on their wants and needs than their daughter’s, Colleen has not had much sense of stability in her life. As the town’s only hair stylist, Colleen has continued to care for others by giving them the confidence they need to look their best. What Colleen has lacked is confidence in herself. Feeling as if she’s nothing but a simple hairdresser, Colleen shies away from anyone she feels is smarter than her, especially the handsome nurse practitioner who’s only in town for three years. When the town raises money for Colleen to build the town a top-of-the-line workout gym by holding an eligible bachelor auction, Colleen’s friends buy a date with Brant for Colleen. Both Brant and Colleen have scars that run deep. Will the two of them be able to overcome the odds stacked against them or will they simply be too much to handle?
