She's all work and no play. He's an expert at fun. Their romance could be the biggest game of all.

Paul Monroe thinks the best way to a woman's heart is through her funny bone. But not everyone in his antique toy business appreciates his playful attitude. After his assistant resigns, he hopes a talent agency can find the perfect replacement. But when he meets the agency's beautiful straight-laced boss, he makes it his personal mission to flip her frown upside down.

Bette Wharton can't afford to lose a client. So when she notices the high turnover rate for assistants sent to a local toy shop, she rolls up her suit sleeves to get to the heart of the problem. But the no-nonsense businesswoman may have finally met her match when she squares off against Paul's office shenanigans. Working side-by-side, Bette starts to let her hair down... and let love in.

With both businesses on the line, can Paul and Bette learn to fuse their leadership styles and their hearts?

Each couple faced a different situation and overcame their obstacles together and with the insightful comments of their friends. ... Heart-warming." - 5-star review
"Fun and serious all at the same time. Love how the friends intertwine and add new along the way. It was refreshing to read the different stories and having them all come together. Really enjoyed this series!" - 5-star review
"Full of warmth, understanding of human nature, and great characters. They are connected, following the lives of college friends, and by the time you are finished, you feel as if you are a part of their extended circle. A dash of sex here, but not to the point that it overshadows the well thought out storylines. Definitely a feel good experience." - 5-star review
