He’s a single dad looking wanting a stable home for his daughter. She’s back in her home town of Cinnamon Bay hoping a fresh start. Now, they’re vying for the same job…and the heated competition may turn frenemies into lovers.Allie Stapleton left Cinnamon Bay for college swearing to never return to the small town where she’d grown up. A few years after landing in the big city to put her MBA to use, she decided the cubicle and the salary that paid for an apartment the size of her walk-in closet back home just wouldn’t do. So she returned. The hospital was hiring a new director and she had the education and just enough experience to be a contender. Her only competition was the resident doctor at the hospital, the boy next door.
Single father, Trace Collins loved being a surgeon and raising his daughter in his home town, but the hours were impacting his daughter in the worst way. His coveted position at the hospital didn’t matter– he needed to make a change. Then a position opened up that might just challenge him: hospital director. He applied immediately, expecting to be a shoo-in until he heard Allie was in town.
They’d played doctor growing up, and while competing for the same position should’ve put them at odds, it only seemed to put them in the mood to take this rivalry to the bedroom instead of the boardroom.
