A serial dater and self-proclaimed ninja, Liv Lester thought accidentally running into her date from hell was as bad as her day could get. As it turns out, there areworse things. Not only is her company getting sued, but the only person able to clear its name has disappeared without a trace.
A brilliant lawyer on the fast track to becoming a senior partner, Dax Morgan follows strict rules that don't include crazy women who pretend to be his girlfriend. His latest case was supposed to be easy. Get in, sue, get out. He certainly didn't plan on meeting Liv, who throws color into his black and white world and makes him question his loyalties.
After chance encounters, misunderstandings, and a trailer load of sticky notes, the two grudgingly team up and find out they might not be as different as they first thought.

ABOUT DREA ST. JAMES

Drea St. James
Mastering uncooperative cooking utensils, fixing wardrobe malfunctions and the ability to speak to dogs are all on Drea’s bucket list. One thing she did tick off her list recently is the conquest of the computer. Well for the most part. There may have been a few incidents proving the contrary to be true. Just don’t mention a supposedly missing ON button to her. Drea lives with her husband and two extroverted dogs in Perth, Western Australia, the world’s most isolated capital city whose population thinks daylight savings is code for government conspiracy. Lucky there is always Drea(m)land, where everything is possible. Even staying out past nine o’clock on a school night. Drea is currently in treatment for her book addiction.

Excerpt

Dax leaned in closer and she froze. “Tell me why you have to be in Jefferson City today, and I might consider letting you go.”

“Can this stay between us?” 

“Is it about the case?”

“Sort of?”

“Then no.”

“Then I refuse to tell you.” Liv pushed against him again. “Now if you would just let me up...”

Dax grinned down at her, shaking his head. She noticed a dimple in his cheek and fought the urge to lick it. She really needed to get some distance or she would never stop thinking about his body parts again. “You should smile more often; it makes you look almost human.”

Ignoring her, he pressed in closer. “What’s in Jefferson City, Liv?”

She groaned when she felt his breath on her skin. Just like that, she would tell him the combination to her safe if she had one. “Fine.” She sighed, knowing he’d won. “David is. And it’s in everyone’s best interest if I find him as soon as humanly possible.”

Dax sat up, pulling her into a sitting position with him. “I think it would be in everyone’s best interest if I came along.”

“And I think it would be in everyone’s best interest if Ben and Jerry’s developed a chocolate-covered-pretzel ice cream.”

“What does Ben and Jerry’s have to do with this case?”

“It’s a metaphor, Mr. Morgan. And the metaphor just told you no way in hell.”

Liv struggled to stand up and tried to walk without landing on her face again.

“You are welcome to use my front door if you promise not to break the lock again.”

She looked at his front door suspiciously. “I think I’ll take my chances with the balcony. There are about five steps separating me from freedom if I use the balcony and more than twenty if I go the other way.”

“I don’t think it’s safe for you to climb over the balcony again, and it would be a real inconvenience, not to mention a mess, if you fell off. I don’t have time to deal with the questions.”

“Tell me how you really feel, why don’t you?” Liv turned her back to him, ignoring his protest.
