"Fun and flirty, EARNING IT is a winner!" -- Avery Flynn, USA Today best selling author of The Negotiator
One blind date. One case of mistaken identity. One Navy SEAL faced with his high school crush. What could go wrong?
And her hookup? A gorgeous lawyer.
It should've been simple. A hot, sweaty afternoon quickie and never the two should boink, er, meet again.
But it wasn't simple when she learns the next day that her hookup is not only her patient but also her old high school nemesis Luke Haas, or Haashole as she called him. All grown-up and a Navy SEAL and…and…brawny and maddening and omg-so-hot.
EARNING IT is a steamy second chance, enemies-to-lovers standalone romantic comedy from RITA Winning and USA Today bestselling author Angela Quarles with a happy-ever-after and no cheating or cliffhangers. Warning: there's a scene where guys get all hot and sweaty playing the ancient Irish sport of hurling, just sayin'
Quarles's taut little contemporary sets up a steamy affair with a forgivably contrived case of mistaken identity. After a 10-year absence, newly minted sports doctor Pepper Rodgers returns to her hometown of Sarasota, Fla. Even before she hangs out her shingle, an old friend sets her up on a blind date. What harm can come from coffee with a good-looking lawyer named Rick? And the man sitting alone at a table in the Mocha Cabana looks more like a young god. Pepper's just been through an unceremonious breakup and a long dry spell, and just the sight of this guy is arousing. The looker in question is in fact Pepper's high school nemesis, Luke Haas, a retired SEAL, and he sees no harm in pretending to be Rick the lawyer after Pepper mistakes him for the person she's supposed to meet. But the coffee leads to a delicious quickie and ultimately to the inevitable relationship-killing confession. The tension plays out as Luke's hurling team prepares for international competition. Fans of lightweight fluff will consume this story in a single sitting. (BookLife)
