Some friendships transcend time and last a lifetime.

Though The This & That Series is written as stand alone novels, they are best enjoyed in order.

At thirty years old, Lexie Baump has a lot on her plate. With a business to run, she doesn't have time for any added distractions. But one momentary indiscretion adds a little hiccup to Lexie's plans. She's pregnant. With no relationship prospects.

But if Lexie thought fighting morning sickness while running a catering business was hard, enter one Dr. Fletcher Haybee. Their connection is instant, and their love of vintage rock tee shirts and Elvis music is enough to bond them for life. There are just two problems.

One: he's dating her oversexed best friend. Two: he's also her obstetrician.

With events to cater, awkward OB appointments to endure, and her ever-growing baby bump making it impossible to close her jeans, Lexie has to find a way to curb her undeniable attraction toward Fletcher and focus on her new role as a working mother. But it certainly isn't easy when it's clear Fletcher himself feels the same magnetic pull towards Lexie.

Can Lexie leave the gorgeous Fletcher for her best friend to chew up and spit out, or will she cave to her feelings and find love in the stirrups? Life's about to get messy, and we're not just talking about crumbs in the carseat...

Marisol Vargas had life all figured out. Having fun without strings was good. Commitment and monogamy were bad. That is, until both of her best friends got married and had kids. Now all of the sudden, instead of being envied for her footloose and fancy-free lifestyle, Marisol finds herself on the outside looking in. Suddenly her home feels like a big, empty house. And her heart feels like the last kid picked for kickball.

Then her car breaks down.

When Marisol meets the owner of Triple D's Garage, Demetrious Antonopolous, she pegs him a bitter, blue collar grunt. They're complete opposites, like apples and oranges, yet beneath the aggravations lies some serious passion.

Little does Marisol know that Demo might be exactly what she needs, and it has nothing to do with cars. When tragedy strikes, will Marisol be able to let Demo in, or will she push him away? And can two complete opposites finally learn how to make great recipes together?

Life can change in an instant. No one knows that better than Candace.

After being widowed with three young children to care for, it was all she could do to keep her household functioning, and herself in one piece. In the two years since her husband's death, never once has she considered getting remarried. Candace is fine with her books, her tea, and her memories, despite her friend's and family's growing concern.

When handsome, twenty-six year old cop, Mason Ledger, buys the house next door, Candace is quickly reminded of just how alone she is. Her kids are gone with grandma for the summer, and other than her attempts at restarting the career she abandoned to become a wife and mother, she's got nothing but spare time. What starts off as friendly neighbors simply sharing a fence line, takes no time to evolve into an attraction neither expected. Before she knows it, Candace is feeling more than just a need for distraction. The problem is, Mason sees a future between the two of them, and Candace is trying desperately to keep things casual.

Can Candace keep her meddling family at bay while she figures out this unexpected romantic conundrum? Will this almost-cougar and her young neighbor find some sort of middle ground? Or will Candace discover that love is every bit as sweet the second time around?
