The only way to get the promotion I’ve been working towards for years is to spend the next three months babysitting a spoiled, snarky movie star. Killian Cooper is on his last chance in Hollywood. He can either get his life together and stay sober while filming his next movie, or he can kiss his acting career goodbye. The studio isn’t taking any chances—they decide that Killian needs a full-time accountability partner, and I’m the not-so-lucky girl chosen for the job. Unless I can keep this bad boy celeb on the straight and narrow, my Hollywood dreams will go down the drain, right along with his career.
All I need to do is keep Killian company in his massive—and surprisingly lonely—mansion, accompany him to the movie set each day, and keep a tight lock on the wine cellar. Easy peasy, right?
Not so fast. Killian isn’t happy with the babysitting arrangement, and he seems determined to drive me crazy with his near constant snark and totally crappy attitude. Even worse, when he’s not actively trying to make my life difficult, he’s strutting around the house, tempting me with that hot action-star body and those broody, way-too-beautiful-to-handle eyes. Don’t even get me started on the shirtless push-ups…
Getting to know Killian Cooper is proving to be a dangerous endeavor—the more time I spend with him, the less obnoxious he seems. When his walls start to come down, I realize there’s more to this falling star than meets the eye. And he might just be my Hollywood dream come true after all.

Ski racer Dane “Danger” Hollister does not do relationships, though he keeps his reason a secret. The real-life curse he's inherited from his mother will eventually cost him everything: his place on the Olympic ski team, his endorsement income, and his ability to fly downhill at top speed.

Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane’s frightening secret and Willow’s tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love.
