Mathias Mitchell’s easy smile hides a world of hurt. After the worst kind of family betrayal, he moves to Happily Inc., California—the wedding destination town supplies a steady stream of bridesmaids, perfect for his “no promises, no pain” lifestyle. Yet he can’t stop watching for his beautiful, elusive neighbor on the animal preserve behind their homes.

Gamekeeper Carol Lund knows she’s not special enough to attract an alpha male like Mathias, so his offer to help her adopt a herd for her lonely giraffe is surprising—and his determined seduction, even more so. But just as she finally welcomes him into her bed, his careless actions crush her heart. Will she give him a second chance to prove she’ll always come first in his heart?


A quirky town keeps bringing happily ever afters when people least expect it! With the second book in her Happily Inc series, Susan Mallery brings us another Mitchell brother romance along with lots of fun and laughs as wedding fever continues to reign! The main characters were a joy to watch get together … I still feel like this series is a tad confusing with all of the characters thrown at you, but at least the core families are becoming familiar.

Gamekeeper Carol Lund might fancy her neighbor Mathias Mitchell, but she knows she’s just a plain Jane in comparison to the one-off bridesmaids he prefers, so she appeases herself with his friendship. When he steps up and finds a brilliant way to raise money to buy the herd her giraffe Millie desperately needs to keep her company, she just can’t believe he’d go so far out of his way to help her. He really is a great guy, even if he doesn’t want anyone to know it!

Mathias grew up in a volatile family atmosphere, and it’s only gotten torn apart more in recent years. He was never one to hold back on giving his love and affection, but there’s only so much heartache a man can take before he has to protect himself … and in his world, love hurts … so he wants no part of it!
