Nothing invigorates the five Carter brothers more than an honest day's work--and the right woman to come home to at night…
Douglas Carter never expected the summer job he took at the post office ten years ago to become his career. But now, at twenty-eight, he has zero regrets. He's happy to have a regular paycheck, good friends, and a sweet plan for retiring early. If only his cute but oh-so-uptight new coworker felt as content as he does…
Janice Baker only works at the post office out of necessity. Her real dream is to become a singer. At thirty, she may be considered over the hill in the entertainment industry, but that just gives her a sense of urgency--and a resolve to date only men of means and ambition. Douglas is obviously not a candidate, despite his good looks. Yet as work forces them to get closer, they discover there's far more to each other than meets the eye--and that two actually work better than one--on and off the job…
In her next book in the “Blue-Collar Lover Series”, Author Zuri Day continues to bring the heat. “Packing Heat” chronicles the story of Post Office Supervisor, Doug Carter and his employee, Janice Baker.
Doug is content with a well-paying job, financial security, the love of family and friends. He is a good man with a great future ahead. Of course, like any other 28-year-old heterosexual male, he would love to have the love and enjoyment of a good woman.
Enters 30-year-old, Janice Baker. A woman who makes it very clear that working at the Post Office is something she’s doing out of necessity and had no desire to be friends, much less lovers, with someone of Doug’s economic status. Her lifelong dream is to be a famous singer and nothing, and no one will stop her from achieving that goal.
Blindsided by the ultimate power of love, they both have to face the fact blue-collar love can also pack a powerful punch.
Zuri Day once again leaves the reader panting and wanting more.
