Description
When old enemies are thrown together, all bets are off...
Way back in high school, golden boy Cade Gallari publicly revealed he'd slept with "fat girl" Ava Spencer to win a bet. Now a decade older and a head turner with her own concierge business, Ava isn't the gullible dreamer she once was— and she plans to prove it when Cade, hotter than ever, breezes back into town with an offer she can't refuse.
A documentary film producer, Cade is shooting a movie about the mysterious mansion Ava inherited. And he wants her as his personal concierge. She's certainly professional enough to be at his beck and call without giving him everything he wants. Like another shot at having her in his bed. But Ava doesn't count on Cade's determination. Because he's never gotten over her— and he's not above playing dirty to score a second chance at a red–hot future...

        June 27, 2011
        Andersen (Burning Up) skillfully plays romantic tension along the love–hate and professional–unprofessional axes when filmmaker Cade Galliari tries for a second chance at Ava Spencer, the "fat girl" he humiliated in high school by sleeping with her on a bet. Now Ava is a curvy bombshell and part-owner of a mansion that Cade wants to do a documentary on. Cade hires her for the production team and then attempts to escalate their reconnection. Andersen may intend her hefty heroine to be empowering, but her complimentary descriptions of Ava's appearance are almost apologetic, and too much of the story focuses on body image issues, as though that's all big women ever think about. Nevertheless, the conflict between Ava's never-faded attraction to Cade and her unwillingness to trust him this time, coupled with both characters' competitive mean streaks, makes a powerful driver for this story.
