This story warmed my heart. The author delivered the story smoothly, made me feel like all the characters were my closest friends and I was in the story which I enjoyed so much. Thank you London for reminding us everyone needs a second chance in life and a cup of coffee in the mornings! – Amazon Review
It’s better if she keeps to herself … or is it?
Dasia Harris lives an ordinary life in London. Well, ordinary for a woman determined to blend in at all costs. Once a gifted computer engineer, now Dasia eschews social media and takes one temporary, dead-end job after another. Because her mother was right: she’s not to be trusted. When Dasia does what comes naturally to her, people get hurt.
But her latest position is different. As an office assistant at a healthcare company, Dasia can’t help but love truly helping people for a change. And after a childhood void of praise or appreciation, Dasia’s boss, Sarah implicitly trusts her—and more importantly, brings out the best in her.
Nurtured by Sarah, Dasia takes on one new challenge after another, ensuring the office runs smoothly. Yes, this occasionally means addressing tech issues that she shouldn’t. The company’s CEO is intentionally setting up Dasia’s supervisor to fail in a vital project. Worse, their coworker, Luke, may be forcing Sarah out—and even shutting down the hospital.
Then Sarah asks Dasia to stay on at the company and play a major role in getting the key project off the ground. Dasia’s surprised that she wants to stay on, but knows it’s an act of self-sabotage. After all, she’s sworn off technology … and charismatic Luke. Yet remaining at the company—and in London—gives her a chance to spend more time with Roy, the charming café owner who makes her feel like herself again.
Deep down, Dasia longs to do the right thing—if only to right her past wrongs. And she can’t help but wonder if putting down roots will give her a shot at the sort of love she’s barely let herself dream of. But that will require her to trust herself again … and to take the ultimate risk by following her heart.
