As a mere assistant to a bestselling author, Olivia McLaughlin has yet to live up to the Most Likely To Succeed label given to her in high school. But now, this small-town Texas girl has a chance to prove herself by pulling off an extravagant St. Patrick’s Day garden party in Houston. If she succeeds, she’ll be promoted to business manager for her boss’s multi-million dollar publishing empire. Unfortunately, Olivia only has seven days to organize the event, and the garden looks like the set from a horror movie.
And worse, the sexy landscape designer her boss hires to help is none other than Cody Kavanaugh, Olivia’s high school boyfriend. The one she ran out on the day after graduation. But her hormones don’t realize it’s been years, and they light up as if those steamy teenage sessions in Cody’s truck were yesterday. From the way he’s looking at her, it’s obvious Cody feels the same. But physical is all they can indulge in because Olivia is an ambitious, big-city career girl while Cody is still a laid-back, small-town guy.
Now, Olivia must decide which she can’t live without—the job that will make her a success or the man offering her a second chance at love.
