Because not only am I stuck with the date from hell, but the fates don't think I've suffered enough, so why not seat me next to my secret crush. Trauma surgeon, Xavier Knight, is the most gorgeous man alive, and completely out of my league. An unobtainable, impossible dream that makes my heart pound whenever he gets close. Fantastic. Now he'll bear witness to my humiliation.
Ah, life, you really know how to kick a girl when she's down.
Tessa and Xavier have friends in common, so have a bit more than a passing acquaintance. But Xavier is a player and Tessa is not. When the two end up sitting at adjacent tables on Valentine’s Day (Xavier is out with his grandmother and Tessa is on a bad blind date), something springs up between the two. But Tessa is looking for a relationship and she has had a bit of a crush on Xavier. Unfortunately, Xavier is scared to death of commitment and only does casual relationships.
It is almost as if these two end up in a relationship accidentally. They spend some time together, then spend some more time together. They find they share a hot and spicy attraction that leads them to fool around. And then they decided to fool around some more. Xavier seems to think that if he doesn’t have actual intercourse with Tessa, he isn’t really in a relationship with her. They fool around without having intercourse for longer than I expected.
It isn’t until after they two have been seeing each other for awhile that Xavier realizes there is something more happening between himself and Tessa. Okay, maybe he realizes it when he brings Tessa to dinner with his grandmother. Up until Xavier sees reality, he is rather adorably clueless about what is happening. Well, adorably clueless until he gets scared and acts like an ass.
When Xavier isn’t being an ass, he is actually a pretty great hero. Before he gets nervous, he and Tessa have a sexy and fun relationship. But of course, Xavier does get cold feet and withdraws from Tessa, leaving her devastated. Fortunately, he wakes up, realizes that he loves Tessa and makes up for his asshattery in spectacular fashion.
