New York City – Present Day

Mackenzie Reed has been out of the dating market for a couple of years and finally agrees to a date with another guy. However, she's stood up, but while she's waiting, in walks a tall, dark, and handsome guy. Mac decides one night with the sexy Wesley (last name unknown) will get her out of her funk, and it works out all too well. She sneaks out of his apartment the next morning but forgets her cell phone. She goes back for it a couple of days later…and comes face to face with Wesley, which leads to more sex. But she won't do it again because she has no plans to see him anymore. Then she meets him again at her sister's place for Thanksgiving…

Police detective Wesley Porter is new to town and was only coming into the bar for a drink when he spotted the beautiful Mac. Their sexy interlude has him wanting more, but she makes it clear she doesn't want to date him. With no family in town, he agrees to go to his best friend's Thanksgiving dinner, where he again meets Mac. They both try to play it cool, but the vibes are still thrumming between them. Finally, Mac agrees to go out with Wesley on an official date, and they're surprised at how well their disparate backgrounds actually mesh together. But Mac is still leery of getting romantically involved, though it doesn't stop them from having sex. When is a relationship  not  a relationship?

STUMBLING INTO LOVE is an apt description of this tale, as Mac and Wesley were not looking for love, but it looks like love found them. With her mom and two sisters pressuring her to get over her unrequited love for another guy, she acquiesces to their demands that she go out on a date. Too bad the date stood her up! Or maybe it turned out to be a good thing, since she met Wesley. But since Mac isn't looking to get into a committed relationship, and Wesley wants to date her, she's caught between a rock and hard place. She likes him, but is he Mr. Right?  The one thing that bugs Mac about Wesley is that he seems to be a man about ready to move on. If that happens, would that end with her having a broken heart?

Wesley does have heartbreak from the past, which is why he moved to New York City to start over. Despite his willingness to bring Mac into his life, he can't yet talk about his past with her. Meanwhile, after they reconnect at Thanksgiving, it's full speed ahead, or at least in the bedroom department. The sex is hot between them and they can't get enough of each other. After a while, it seems like there is smooth sailing ahead, until an oops-moment leads them to a surprise neither expects. How will Mac and Wesley handle it? Are they in for the long haul, or is their fling indeed fleeting?

STUMBLING INTO LOVE is book number two in the  Fluke My Life  series, with the first tale about Mac's sister, Fawn, and Wesley's best friend, Levi, and each can easily be read as a standalone. STUMBLING INTO LOVE is a sexy, flirty romance about a couple wondering if there's a chance for a happily-ever-after together.
