Allie and Matt start out their flirtatious encounter on a Napa Valley wine tour with lies, lies, and more lies, but they both know they’re lying–it’s a flirting game–no harm will be done. Only harm is inadvertently done, because they both want more from the other than a one-off encounter with no strings attached.
Matt’s a major league baseball player who can’t go anywhere without fans and women draping themselves all over him. He’s incognito on a wine tour hoping to have some fun with a buddy before getting sent down to Tripple A for rehab. Allie knows exactly who Matt is, but she doesn’t figure it out unil she’s already flubbed a pick-up line, made a fool out herself, and gotten lost in Matt’s baby blues. By the time she figures out who is is and that he’s the pro athlete who keeps turning down her charity request for posing shirtless in her marketing firm’s calendar, she’s in too deep to come clean.
Of course, it all unravels, but after the wine tour is over, they both have a chance to realize how much truth was peppered in among the lies, the biggest truth being their undeniable attraction to each other.
This was a sweet, funny, flirty novella perfect for whiling away a couple hours this weekend.

“I’ve been incredibly busy with work,” Allie said defensively. “It’s not easy starting up a business. It takes every minute of my time–”
“Slu-ump,” she continued in a singsong voice.
“Stop that. That doesn’t qualify as a slump. I’m not sure I like that word.”
“…slump is a better desciption that dry spell.”
“Oh God, you’re right.”–Kindle Location 34
She saw the Restroom sign and ducked into the miniscule room with Matt following right behind her. There wasn’t time to think twice about her decision. She turned, and his arms were around her. He pulled her into his body, leaning against the door at the same time, and she felt his arousal and his racing heartbeat and knew there was nothing better than this moment.–Kindle Location 536
How hasd one woman scrambled his brain like this, in less time than it took for him to finish nine innings? He needed somebody to decipher all the signals he was getting, only there wasn’t a coach on the sidelines telling him what to do.–Kindle Location 716
