Where is it?

Even one-night stands deserve a second chance in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken's novel of sporting desire.

What else can a virgin do when she's ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.

Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he's blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They're both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who's playing his own games. And he's not afraid to get dirty.

Now there's only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they've told, the secrets they've kept, the mistakes they've made, and the attraction that still burns between them.

Booklist Review
Mackenzie Dupont is a 30-year-old virgin heiress who was just left at the altar, so she decides to go solo on the honeymoon she planned with her (ex) fiancé. Airplane turbulence has her seeking comfort from her seatmate, who, fortunately, is the very hot pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez, also escaping from heartache. They give each other fake names, then have one night of crazy passion. Back in Seattle, Mack takes a temporary job as a personal assistant. When she learns it's Slade who needs his dishes washed and dog walked, she almost balks. But she knows he's hurting, too, and she decides he needs her, just not like that, at least for as long as she can hold off her own attraction to him. Some of Slade's locker-room banter with his teammates is a little too macho, but that misstep does not detract from an uncomplicated story about a guy getting over himself to stand up for the woman he loves.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2019 Booklist
