Janice Newton avoids close ties by directing all her energy toward her job and using her well-developed defense system to keep everyone, especially the coworker she secretly craves, at arm's length. But will her fear of reopening old wounds keep her from a relationship with the one person who sees through her tough exterior and into her vulnerable heart?
Miguel Rosas has developed a strategy of his own: one that should tumble Janice's walls, if only he can execute it. A burning dinner, intrusive relatives, and a secret from his past conspire to keep his plans half baked, though he's determined to get things sizzling.
This standalone novella featuring characters from Melanie Greene's Rocket Man brings Janice and Miguel together for a long-anticipated date that threatens to become an epic disaster. Little does Miguel know that the very problems he's trying to quell provide the insights that finally make Janice ready to roll.
