Out of money, out of food, even out of laundry detergent, Paige Vaughn is almost out of hope as well. With less than two semesters left until she gets her interior design degree, Paige hunkers down in the college library to weigh her options. Considering her estranged relationship with her mother, asking her parents for help is out of the question. She’d rather be homeless. She needs a cheaper place to live and a better paying job.
After Cooper Jennings career ending NFL injury, he went back to college to get a second degree in interior design to compliment his architectural degree. He’s given up on love and is determined to focus on his business. His ex-best friend and former teammate, Sawyer Pierce, charmed away every woman Cooper ever dated. He even married Cooper’s fiancée while Cooper was still in his first surgery.
Cooper Jennings doesn’t want a relationship. That was one of the reasons he picked Paige Vaughn to help him start his business. She isn’t the typical beauty queen that Sawyer usually went after. She is funny, talented, and never looks at Cooper with pity. When he got the idea to partner with her, she’d been sixty pound heavier. He still doesn’t want a relationship, but finds himself drawn to Paige and whenever he’s around her, he can’t keep from smiling.
Now all he has to do is convince her to become his personal assistant, and help him get through his next surgery. Of course, to persuade his parents to let go of the burden of caring for him, they’ll need to be convinced he and Paige are a couple. What harm can be caused by an innocent white lie?
