As the senior editor for Stillwater Publishing, Abigail Cole was the editor from hell. She could bring the mightiest scribes and the biggest egos to heel with the stroke of her famed red pen. However when the days of the well-crafted book at Stillwater went out of the window in favor of celebrity tell-alls and novels written by the latest neophytes du jour, Abigail packed up her red pen, moved onto greener pastures and started a successful public relations firm with her best friend, Shana Collingsworth. After seven seasons as quarterback for the New York Giants, Sam Best retired to focus on his legacy and build his future with his fiancée, Maria Carrangelo. So when he was offered a contract to write his life story, it was a no-brainer until he discovered putting pen to paper was harder than he thought. When his manager Reggie Shaw realized his client needed a life preserver he asked his friend Abby to un-retire her red pen to work with Sam. With an editorial deadline overhead, Abby and Sam work together. At first she's a taskmaster, but eventually Sam begins to see her as something more than a tough editor. She was a sexy woman. Soon Abby begins to see Sam as being different from what she expected in an athlete. He was warm, sexy and giving. As attraction turns into love, can they overlook the external and internal pressures in their lives to find happiness together?
