Georgie Castle has been in love with her child friend Travis Ford for years. After an injury tanks his baseball career, Travis comes back to his home town and meets back with Georgie. There’s an undeniable chemistry, but Travis is in denial.

However, when his womanizing reputation prevents him from landing a job as a broadcast announcer, Georgie suggests a mutually beneficial fake relationship.

From there, things only get crazier.

Like real-life romance, this novel is crazy, hectic, and sweet. As Kirkus Reviews warns, “Don’t let the cover fool you: This romance is as steamy as it is self-empowering”.
