A football star and a single mom…
Teach each other to trust again
To impress the executives buying her app, Nichole Moore enlists the help of old friend and pro quarterback Chase Jacobs. A pretend marriage is the perfect ruse: Chase’s celebrity status will impress the executives, while likable, hardworking Nichole could fix his fading career. But as their fake relationship plays out under the glare of the public eye, Nichole realizes her feelings might be the real deal…
Her Surprise Engagement Book Excerpt
He stepped closer to her. “Let’s make a deal.”
Deal? Nichole moved toward him and tipped her head to lock her gaze on his. The last deal she’d made with Chase had her married to him. How much worse could it get? “What do you have in mind?”
“You make your food.” He grimaced and recovered. His gaze warmed and searched her face. “I’ll make my version and we see which one everyone prefers.”
“What are you making exactly?” Nichole eyed him. He reached forward, brushed her hair off her shoulder. His touch light and swift. But the effect left her restless and wishful. She cleared her throat. “It has to be healthy, no ice cream or brownies to sway the vote.” No more tugs on her heart to sway her resolve.
“It’ll be something simple. Kid-friendly.” He opened the refrigerator and peered inside. Then turned toward her. His gaze lit up. “Baked ziti with fresh tomatoes, spinach and broccoli.”
“You might want to reconsider so many vegetables.” And she’d reconsider her urge to move closer to him. “It also doesn’t sound so simple.”
“Don’t underestimate a kid’s palate. I’ll add sausage too.” He held out his hand. “Do we have a deal?”
Chase could cook. Very well. Nichole hardly knew her way around the kitchen. She kept her hands in her pockets. “What happens when you lose?”
“The loser has to cook breakfast for everyone for the rest of the weekend.” He grinned at her.
“Done.” No way would she lose this. She knew both the boys too well. Spinach would stop the conversation before it started. Nichole set her hand inside Chase’s.
A jolt of awareness bounced between their palms and vaulted toward her chest. And she wondered if she’d made a different sort of bargain. One that had nothing to do with cooking and everything to do with distance. And not keeping hers.
