“Ox” Oxford is used to being alone. Granted, when you screw over your
friends, being alone isn’t always a choice. Playing for the Chicago Watchmen is
a last-ditch effort to save his career…and right some of his past wrongs. He’s
not expecting a warm reception, but he’s also not expecting a flat tire to
change everything.Recovering control freak, single mom and semiprofessional chaos wrangler Lola
Deacon McIntire doesn’t need an arrogant ballplayer to swoop in and save her
from anything, much less her flat tire. And she definitely doesn’t need her
body to betray her and decide this is the guy to wake up her rusty libido. She
isn’t about to upset her sons’ lives for any man—much less one who so clearly
doesn’t think he’s dad material.
Jack never thought he’d find someone who wanted to build a life with him, but
the more time he spends with Lola and her boys, the more it starts to feel
permanent. Even tough-as-nails Lola concedes there just might be a future
here—the big, beautiful, messy future neither of them was looking for—but only
if Jack will accept he deserves it.
believer in happily ever afters, Jen Doyle decided it was high
time she started creating some. She has an M.S. in Library and Information
Science and, in addition to her work as a librarian, has worked as a conference
and events planner as well as a Communications and Enrollment administrator in
both preschool and higher education environments (although some might say that
there is very little difference between the two; Jen has no comment regarding
whether she is one of the “some”).
