Can a rock radio goddess and an all-work accountant turn up the volume on their future, or will they decide that the numbers don’t add up?
Deejay Mabel Bowen rules the morning airwaves, but once she signs off, she’s happy going home alone; a long-ago humiliation taught her that women in the public eye should be cautious about dating. Then she meets the Clark Kent-ish accountant overseeing the sale of her radio station, and their chemistry's so explosive that she starts thinking about breaking her own “girl, don’t date him” rules.
Since he was a teenager, Jake Carey has worked to lift his mom and sister out of poverty, and he’s now on the verge of a promotion that’ll secure their financial future. Why, then, is he so quick to set aside his spreadsheets whenever the gorgeous morning show host is around? After years of using his job as an excuse to avoid searching for emotional connections, he’s now jumping at every chance to spend time with Mabel and her maple syrup voice.
Despite their initial reservations, Mabel and Jake move from conversations over coffee to flirty office lunches to a night out that obliterates all their previously drawn lines. Then a professional betrayal sends Mabel fleeing back to the safety of her single-girl persona. But Jake isn't ready to give up on this once-in-a-lifetime love and sets out to balance their work/life books.

I had a great time with Mabel the sexy coed DJ and Jack the hot accountant. Mabel is leery about getting involved with Jake due to a past humiliation. Jake was not looking for a relationship but after meeting Mabel he decided she is worth the time. The characters are well developed and engaging and the chemistry between them is undeniable. The flow of the storyline flowed smoothly.
