Beau and Bett by Katheryn Berla
Blurb: Beau LeFrancois’ mother never saw the accident coming, and she certainly never imagined the problems associated with running into Bett Diaz’s luxury SUV. Fortunately, no one was hurt but Mrs. LeFrancois’ car needs extensive repairs, and she also must pay for the damage to the other car. The problem is, the LeFrancois family is going bare—unable to afford car insurance ever since Beau’s dad met with a work-related accident in his employment as an orange-picker in California’s scenic Central Coast.
Beau volunteers to work off the debt through manual labor on the Diaz Ranch. What he isn’t prepared for is Bett Diaz. Warned by Khalil (the son of his mother’s employer) that Bett is known as ‘The Beast’ at their school because of her bad temper, Beau approaches the job with trepidation and vows to stay away from the boss’s daughter. However, Bett has other plans—bored and friendless, she finds excuses to shadow Beau whenever he’s at the ranch. After hours spent in her company, Beau learns the secrets behind Bett’s tough exterior and finds himself falling for her. That is, until he catches Bett in a lie.
