Care For Me (POSTGRAD Book 2) by Bria Felicien
Kenn is on a mission to get hired. It’s her number one goal and primary focus as she finishes business school. But after her dream job slips from her hands, she’s thrown into a tailspin and vows to do whatever it takes to prove she’s worthy of being hired. Nothing can distract her. Not even her attractive, quiet, new and temporary coworker Derrick, who she sort of, possibly, maybe has a crush on.
Derrick wants to do his job, mind his business and try to forget all the ways he’s been betrayed in the last five years. But he’s thrown off when his cute, new, and short-term coworker comes in, piquing his interest and forcing him to deal with the reasons he doesn’t plan on dating anyone anytime soon.
What starts as a rocky office friendship eventually turns into genuine companionship and before they know it, Kenn and Derrick’s relationship grows into something neither one of them realized was possible.
Can they overcome their fears and pasts to form a healthy relationship? Or should their friendship end when the job does?
