Annie Caslo is a successful, young doctor, but when she begins rethinking the career choices she’s made, she makes a decision to find a way to stay focused and achieve her true ambitions – that is until fate steps in and she is thunderstruck by Colt Ballard. He’s six foot three inches of heart-stopping hotness, an adept, roguish soccer star and also one of her interns. But he’s a player – on and off the field – and Annie has better things to do. Still, the combustible chemistry between them is impossible to resist – Colt brings out feelings she never knew existed and Annie’s swept off her reluctant feet.
When she continues to second-guess her life choices, opportunities and obstacles begin piling up higher than the greasy Mexican food stacks she hates to admit loving. While in a state of emotional turmoil, she gets a celestial visit from a hunky, Hollywood heartthrob, lookalike, who claims to be her guardian angel. He takes her on a magical road trip to self-discovery with the help of several, dearly departed film icons.
Drawn into the excitement of a life she’s always dreamed of, this new life threatens to shatter the LIFE and love she already has—unless her quirky angel can help her find a way to have it all.
Read an Excerpt
Colt blew a huge whistle of air when he saw the new professor for the first time.
Fuck. How old was she, nineteen, twenty? Colt knew enough about women to recognize the magnetism that sparked between them when their eyes met. That could be interesting. But several underclass women began chattering around him, severing the moment of mutual interest. Although they did their best to tempt him, he never dallied—well, almost never—with fellow students; too much of a distraction.
When he was finally able to make his way into the classroom, he took a seat in the front row. He couldn’t take his eyes off the woman who had taken over the position as the new clinic director. Then Sunni came in and took the seat next to him.
“Hey, Colt,” she purred. “Hey, girl.” Even as Sunni casually placed her hand on his leg and ran it up and down his thigh, his mind wandered as he contemplated what it would be like to get with a professor. Seduce a professor? No, probably a bad idea. An encounter with that little beauty would be more than crossing the line. But, God, look at those lips. He watched the new professor chew her plump, desirable, bottom lip while noting the name of each student. Between Sunni’s leg massage and the thought of tasting Dr. Caslo’s luscious lips, his body started to tense. He placed his hand on top of Sunni’s to stop her. “Ah, not now, Sun.” He gave her a little grin. “I want to pay attention to the instructions.”
Sunni pouted like a child denied a second cookie, but she moved her hand from his leg. Colt’s gaze immediately went back to the gorgeous woman who was going to be his professor and mentor for the next year.
Oh, hell no! This was totally a bad idea. When he was done with her, he couldn’t just get up and leave as he usually did with his one-night encounters. Colt would have to see her every day and she’d be grading him. Forget it, dude. There were plenty more accessible fish in the sea. That chick was at the top of the food chain.
