From the author of Doing It for Love (“The perfect blend of humor and sizzle.”—Rachel Harris) comes a hilarious and heartwarming rom-com about two people who are meant to be . . . even if they can’t quite seem to get it together.
Single again on Valentine’s Day, struggling actor Alec Tucker agrees to help out his longtime friend—and unrequited love—Theresa Jones by filling in as one of the bachelors for her company’s charity auction. Alec figures it couldn’t hurt to meet someone new. Still, working with Theresa reminds him of all the reasons he never got over her. So it feels a little bittersweet when, out of nowhere, a beautiful young street artist buys a date with him for a whopping four grand.
Little does he know, Theresa’s had a major change of heart. She’s crushed when someone else wins a date with Alec—but she isn’t going down without a fight. After a pep talk from her best friend, Theresa makes a desperate move that goes against her better judgment . . . and things only get crazier from there. But with Alec ready to move on and Theresa afraid she’s pushed him away for good, maybe a little crazy is exactly what they need—before they both miss their shot.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Mae's third contemporary (after No Interest in Love) wins the reader over with a sympathetic, accurate portrayal of unrequited crushes and the terror of confessing romantic feelings. Alec and Theresa have been friends for years, and Alec has been in love with Theresa almost the entire time. When Theresa needs a bachelor to auction off for a Valentine's Day charity event, Alec is happy to step in; he wants to try to move on from being besotted with Theresa, since she doesn't return his affection, and what better way than with the adventurous graffiti artist Rian, who wins his company for the night? Alec has no idea that Theresa has realized that her feelings for him also go deeper than friendship, and she will do everything she can to get his attention before it's too late. Mae has developed a charming, realistic couple who straddle the line between friendship and romance without neglecting either. Alec narrates one half of the book and Theresa narrates the other half, creating a balanced portrayal of the major emotional events of their relationship. Even the most cynical reader will find themselves rooting for this pair.
