Overview
From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very hot...
Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever even if that means teaming up with Ford....
Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for

Sparks fly when divorce lawyer Victoria Slade moves in next door to Chicago Tribune reporter Ford Dixon—but they are not the falling-in-love kind of neighbors. She thinks he’s an arrogant jerk with a parade of women; he finds her judgmental and abrasive. This has the makings of a long and uncomfortable summer, until Victoria is roped into helping Ford’s sister. Their childhoods—Ford with an alcoholic dad and Victoria taking care of a mother with depression—taught them to sidestep relationships and entanglements. The boundaries they place around their tentative friendship and eventual affair are distressing but realistic, and it’s gratifying to see the barriers eventually fall. Victoria’s struggles to face her fears and acknowledge her shields are raw and heart-wrenching, but each healing step toward a future with Ford feels like a victory. Ford is a genuinely nice guy, and it’s easy to root for him to win the woman of his dreams. Their happy-ever-after is not a sweet and foregone conclusion, but a hard-won battle involving risks and blind faith. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (June)
