Laughter is guaranteed with this romantic comedy spiced with relatable characters and witty dialogue. Single and successful Esme Whitaker has a list of things she’s never done but wants to accomplish before her next birthday – the big 4-0. On that list, surprisingly, is to have sex. Too bad the man she’d love to test those waters with, tall and heroic Trey Pettigrew, is also the guy who rubs her absolutely the wrong way.
Sometimes, though, you get a second chance to make a first impression.
Trey Pettigrew is a man with a dream, and one job: keep his father, CEO of Pettigrew Construction, happy during recovery from a heart attack. What should have been a simple acquisition turns sideways when Trey is forced to leave the negotiation table to thwart an attack on a sharp-tongued but intriguing woman.
In a twist of fate, the specialist hired to put his acquisition back on track is the woman that Trey rescued. Esme is bright, tenacious, and unrelenting at the contracts table. With her dangerous curves etched into his memory, Trey hopes to make up for his behavior the first time they met, but her no-nonsense attitude about after-hours pursuits puts that idea to bed.
Until Trey happens upon her Never List.
Can two people, each determined to accomplish what they’ve set out to do, find a way to meet in the middle? You know what they say – life is what happens when you make plans.
