Series: St. Luis Mavericks
Michael Boone has just one goal: to get traded to his hometown team so he can be closer to
his family. But when a runaway bride who happens to be his coach’s daughter jumps into
his car to escape Mr. Wrong, the heat is on ... in more ways than one.
I’m supposed to be a guest at my coach’s daughter’s wedding to a player from another team, but
instead I find myself helping her escape it. The timing couldn’t be worse—I have to stay in
Coach’s good graces to secure the trade I need. But when the sexy, newly single redhead with
legs for days shows up in my life again, I can’t say no.
After escaping marriage to a man who made me feel like I was never enough, I plan to focus
entirely on completing my dissertation. Science has never let me down—I can avoid emotional
entanglements by focusing on cold, hard data. But when I’m powerfully drawn to a man who is
warm and, okay, I’ll admit it—also hard—all bets are off. Mr. Right Now is exactly what I need,
until both of us find ourselves wanting the one thing we can’t have—more.
