For Noah Mackie, life is finally back on track. He has a great support system, a promised promotion is on its way, and he’s finally getting the hang of this single father thing. But when the job falls through and his neighbor’s matchmaking efforts become more aggressive, Noah is in for yet another unwanted detour. With his career and two spirited daughters to worry about, he doesn’t have time for dating—especially not someone like Cassie Ellis, his girls’ beautiful and sophisticated dance instructor, who is about as open and approachable as a brick wall.
Rough around the Edges Meets Refined is about two people who think they know exactly what they want but who have no idea what they really need. It’s about learning that people aren’t always what they seem and that sometimes life’s detours take you exactly where you need to go.
The moment Kajsa saw Noah through the open door, she yelled out, “Daddy!” and came charging his way. Adelynn soon followed. As the girls barreled into him, Noah’s gaze caught Cassie’s briefly before she looked away. Another parent engaged her in a conversation as Kajsa grabbed Noah’s hand.
“C’mon, Dad, let’s go. I’m starving,” Kajsa said.
“Me too,” said Adelynn, grabbing his other hand.
Noah resisted, shooting Cassie another glance. “Why don’t you change out of your dance shoes first?”
“We can do that in the car. C’mon.” Adelynn continued to tug.
“But it’s wet outside, and you don’t want to ruin your new shoes, right? And besides, I need to ask your teacher something before we go.”
“What?” said Kajsa.
“Just a question,” he said. “So go take off your shoes and—”
“Miss Cassie!” Adelynn shouted across the room, interrupting the conversation between Cassie and another parent.
Cassie looked her way. “Yes, Adelynn?”
“My dad needs to ask you a question.”
The room became quiet, and all eyes came to rest on Noah.
