Does he find the cynical, sarcastic sports journalist unbearably sexy? Also yes. Does she hate his guts? All the yes.

Charlie’s not the forgiving type, especially after a broken heart in the past has left her jaded, but she can’t deny that Adam, with his beard, tattoos and panty-melting smile (oh, and muscles–can’t forget to mention the muscles) might just be winning her over. With a second chance on the line, Charlie will have to decide if getting nailed by the smoking hot carpenter is worth the risk.
