Nora Mackenzie just landed her first client as a full-time sports agent— unfortunately, he’s her ex-boyfriend, NFL tight end Derek Pender. Derek is less than thrilled when he learns that his new agent is the woman who broke his heart in college. He decides that if Nora really wants to be his agent, she must work for it. Derek puts Nora through the wringer for a bit, and they travel to Vegas after she lands him an amazing endorsement opportunity. But one fun night together ends with Derek and Nora married, and their relationship becomes a media sensation, putting Nora’s job in jeopardy until Derek agrees they should not annul the marriage right away. This keeps them in closer proximity than either is expecting, and their time together makes them aware of their feelings for each other. When a new scandal threatens their second chance, Nora and Derek’s new foundation is rocked, and they must learn to rely on each other without losing sight of their own goals.
VERDICT Fans of Sarina Bowen and P. Dangelico will love Adams’s (Practice Makes Perfect) newest laugh-out-loud and heartwarming tale.
