When Melinda learns Nate’s dad is selling his bakery, she realizes her dream to own the bakery herself. But in order to access her inheritance funds, she must first complete her father’s Carpe Diem list, which challenges her to take risks she normally wouldn’t—like only dating someone who leaves her breathless.
Nate wants a second chance with her and she finds him nearly impossible to resist. Could he be the key to completing her dad’s list and saving the bakery? And can he help her do both without breaking her heart all over again?

A footballer legendary for keeping his cool. A woman who challenges him like no other.
Nothing gets by me. Nothing gets to me. On the field, or off. Until I meet Harper. One taste of her lips, and it hits me hard—right to the gut. I’ll do whatever it takes to win her.
She’s brilliant, she’s beautiful, and she’s so reserved, she becomes the challenge I have to win.
She can’t be bothered. She’s not impressed with much—not the fact I’m an international soccer star, not money. She’s also running from something.
I can be patient. I’m used to that game. But this isn’t a game.
Not with Harper, not when she’s everything I want. Protecting the net is easy. The heart…not so much.
