Some people change your life Others change your heartNewly widowed dad Sebastian Dorner was unraveling at the edges--until his son's teacher, Via DeRosa, threw him a lifeline. Now, two years later, they reconnect at Matty's new school, and an inconvenient but unmistakable jolt of attraction crackles between them. But why does the first person to spark with Sebastian in years have to be a millennial? Is twentysomething Via really too young for him or does fortysomething Sebastian just feel too damn old? A former foster kid, Via's finally forged the stable life she's always dreamed of--new job, steady income, no drama. The last thing she needs are rumors about her and a single dad at school. But why does she keep being drawn into his capable, worn-flannel orbit? And why does being around Sebastian, Matty and even their dog, Crabby, seem to spark so much want? They're trying to ignore the tension threatening their friendship. But sometimes what'll heal you is just a touch--and a heartbeat--away...

Review quote

"An utterly satisfying and delicious read. One for the keeper shelf!"--Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author "Just A Heartbeat Away is a beautiful slow burn romance. The chemistry between Sebastian and Via absolutely stole my heart!"--MOLLY FADER, award-winning author of The Bitter and Sweet of Cherry Season "Emotionally intense and real, JUST A HEARTBEAT AWAY touches the soft place in your soul. Cara Bastone's debut novel will warm you from the inside out and stay with you long after you finish the book."--Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author "Just a Heartbeat Away is gorgeous, brilliant, with characters so unique and real they leap right off the page. It's a master class in achy breaky yearning. Don't start this one late at night unless you don't need to do anything the next day except for pre-ordering the next one."--Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author of the True North series
