to rural living someday. As a stay-at-home mom, she spends most of her days
running back and forth between her two wonderful kids and her laptop. She loves
her family, iced coffee, and happily-ever-afters.
Theo is a reality star actor who has earned his bad boy reputation with his public actions. He now finds himself with no money or job and he needs to find a way out of the mess he has made of his life. When he sees Hadley and her dog on the program The Final Showdown, he is drawn to her immediately and believes she could be the answer to his problems both personally and professionally.
Hadley thought she had her future all mapped out until she appeared on The Final Showdown and she realizes that is her true calling. When Theo approaches her with his idea of a show, she sees that there is more to him than his reputation.
I really like how Theo was all in from the beginning. He was willing to do anything to be the man that Hadley needed and that included embracing her wild and wacky family. From their first meeting Hadley realized that underneath his bad boy demeanor Theo had a heart of gold. Sweet and sexy the humorous banter, hot chemistry and great characters make this story a winner.
