team’s strict vow of celibacy and mantra: ‘Focus! Keep an eye on the
ball—and stay away from women.’
What Jakes didn’t count on was a chance meeting with Angie Summers, an artist who shook him to his core and threw his well-laid plans into a tailspin. Not even his promise to his friends and teammates, over 9 000 miles between them, and demons from his past could stop Jakes from falling for Angie.
Unfortunately, not everything is plain sailing, and Jakes finds
that it takes a team
to help him overcome obstacles to find his way to his own Happily Ever After.
When Angie stumbled upon Jakes by accident, it definitely wasn't love at first sight. She wasn't looking for a new relationship,
after all, she was
