In an instant, plans change and he has to find a way to outmaneuver the inevitable...
Garret Reid has plans for his days of retirement from the NFL. He'll miss the rush of the game and winning but it was time to relax. Enjoy a life away from the game and doing absolutely nothing for a while. But a favor for an old friend, changes all that. Yet the favor doesn't turn out as he thought it would. Maura, the woman he's sent to assist, is stubborn, opinionated, and drives him crazy. She doesn't appreciate his help and now he finds himself in a predicament. Go back to a life of doing nothing or accept the challenge she sparks within him. Garret is not one to back away from any challenge. Garret can't decide if he is more drawn to her because of her passion for the center she runs or for the sassy woman who makes him feel things he never has before. Garret doesn't have a problem letting Maura think she is in charge of things. Now he has a change of plans and he has to find a way to outmaneuver the woman he wants more than anything else.
Maura Maxwell didn't need some egotistical football player to interfere with her center. She knows his type—inflated ego because they were the supposedly the best at the game and had a few super bowl rings. She wasn't about to let any of her people get attached. No matter if Garret seems genuine, affable and charming. She didn't believe it for a minute. No one had the kind of success he had in the sport if they weren't determined and had some backbone. She would be on her guard and not let him outmaneuver her. Garret might have been the master on the football field but in her world, there was only one person in charge—her.
When two strong-willed people find themselves put together due to circumstances they each have an outcome they want but...who will have the best laid plans?
