I’ve got to admit, life is sweet these days. As a starting NFL quarterback, I do okay, and I haven’t been lacking for female companionship. But I’d give it all up in a heartbeat if I could get back the woman I loved and lost—my ex-wife, Katy.
Now I’m at a wedding, watching one of my best friends tie the knot. I’m happy for him—really. I just wish things had turned out better when I’d taken that walk down the aisle. Still, those days are over.
I’m on my way up to my room when I run into my ex in the elevator. It’s like karma. Has to be. Only she’s with some random guy, who’s getting a little too handsy for my liking. I can’t help myself—I have to say something. Something that ruins her night…and mine, too.
Now, I’m sitting alone in my hotel room, when suddenly, Katy’s at my door, complaining that I ruined her 30th birthday. Her solution—that I give her the night of sexual adventure I’d derailed in the elevator.
I never was very good at saying no to her…
Grant and Kathy were college sweethearts who thought their love was invincible until they let the pressures of their careers and their different views of the future cause a wedge between them. Hurtful words were said and rather than trying to compromise they find themselves divorced and facing their futures alone even if they still loved each other.
A few years later a chance meeting in a hotel when they are there with other people leads to fireworks so when they are both dumped by their dates they spend a steamy evening together. All they wanted was one night and they would go back to their regular lives but before they know it they find themselves pretending to be a couple however the feelings between them are quite real. Will this be their second chance or are they destined to repeat the mistakes of their pasts?
When Grant and Kathy were married they both made mistakes as they became focused on their own goals without appreciating what the other wanted but with a little maturity and whole lot of love they realize what and who is truly important in their lives.
