Summary:
FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army Ranger clashed during their training at Quantico and gladly went their separate ways after graduating from the Academy.

For both of them, being paired with an old rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work together—a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a lot more complicated...

Series: Love & Other Disasters, book 2

 

Summary:
Look, I get it, I'm not asking for miracles. I might be a closeted hopeless romantic, but I'm also a realist. I don't need fireworks. I'm not asking for magic. Of course my date won't be Prince Charming. All I'm asking for is a pleasant night out on the worst single day of the year. That's not exactly shooting for the stars, now is it?

 

Apparently, it is.
