Rachel Byrne is the black sheep in her family, meaning she didn’t marry straight out of high school and immediately start popping out babies. Determined to have a career of her own, she’s putting herself through college. So what if her love life has been less than stellar? She doesn’t need a man getting in her way, anyway.
Virginia Valley University wide receiver Jake Truitt’s dreams of going pro took a nosedive when his parents died at the start of last season. Finally coming to terms with the tragedy, he’s ready to pick up the pieces and get his life back on track only to be derailed again when he takes custody of his three younger siblings.
Jake needs help and Rachel needs money. When she accepts his offer for a summer nanny job, she knows it’s a bad idea to get involved with her new boss. But sometimes the worst ideas are the hardest to resist.
