NBA star Mike Giamaria doesn't mix basketball with love. Ever. Then Mike meets Tori Williams, his cute, quirky new neighbor who seems hell bent on refurbishing her death trap of a house on her own. When she falls from her roof and into his arms, Mike knows he's just caught a whole heap of trouble.
Trouble sums up Tori's life. Despite her academic success, no one believes she can take care of herself–not her family, not her ex-boyfriend. She's determined to live her life on her own terms, and if that includes a hot summer fling with the super-sexy athlete next door, so much the better.
But when Tori's around, Mike can't keep his mind on basketball. He wants…more. And to his horror, not just more time on the court. When training starts, it's game over–it has to be–unless Tori can convince Mike that love doesn't belong on the sidelines.
