The new plan doesn't unfold quite as smoothly as she expected. The job is a lot tougher thanks to Jay Canady, the man she'll eventually replace. Working with him and his high standards definitely tests her resolve. Not to mention all the sparks igniting between them. Office affairs have never factored on her radar, but Jay is so…hot, she might make an exception.

As they begin to follow cold leads, Courtney glimpses something surprising beneath his tough exterior - care, compassion, and even, vulnerability.
