Centerfielder Grey Kemmons is spending the off-season renovating the house he inherited fromhis father. It’s a miserable job, but he’s doing it anyway-because somebody has to pay back the money his father stole. When a spitfire of a woman in a surprisingly attractive package shows up wanting to list the house, he agrees to pacify her with a tour, never expecting the mutually beneficial business relationship that ensues.
As weeks go by, business turns to pleasure with Nel and Grey believing the temporary nature of their time together will protect their hearts. Too bad nothing can protect them from or prepare them for love.
