Hopeless romantic. Never did two words describe anyone more than Quinn Jacobs…or at least in her mind. Quinn refuses to believe that her fun-loving idealist ways and sentimental dreamer mentality can be mistaken for a creepy class A clinger.
When she makes a bet with her best friends from high school that she’ll be married within a year, her delusional skewed view makes her think the task seems simple enough. After, repeatedly misinterpreting her romantic partner’s affection for her, Quinn begins to think that maybe it isn’t ‘them’ after all. Maybe she’s the problem. And never has a person agreed with her more than the edgy and mysterious Paxton. They may be oil and water but if he can help her find a guy and accomplish her year-end goal, then who cares. But she slowly realizes that her whimsical ways may have agreed her to a world with Pax that she hadn’t bargain for!
Paxton Wolfe prides himself on “keeping it real.” Growing up in Orange Mound, Tennessee, taught him that if you want anything in life you had to work for it. When he starts his own flooring business, he kindly kissed away his thuggish lifestyle and entered the world of entrepreneurship. Women, money and full control are the perfect combination. Romance is just an unnecessary distraction and the last thing Pax is looking for. However; he hadn’t planned for the bubbly, outgoing and clueless Quinn Jacobs to walk into his life. He’s prepared to put in the work to help her land her dream man, but the one thing he didn’t count on is the slow burning affection he starts to feel for the neurotic – yet mesmerizing – woman. Her uncontrollable honesty, endearing cuteness and inability to not wear her heart on her sleeve, makes her the most dangerous woman to fall for. But he’s not in danger of that… right?
