Being the town's most hated bachelor has its benefits, mainly a complete lack of people asking for favors, but there's one woman in town who tempts Matt Stewart to act the hero. If he had the time to concentrate on anything other than getting his son a tryout for his dream college football team and building his real estate empire, he'd step out of the shadows and pursue Allison Miller.
Allison would be happy if things in Lincoln would stop changing before she's ready. Her best friend's getting married; her kindly landlord has handed her lease to the jerk next door. And worst of all, she's obsessed with how well said jerk looks in a suit and out of it. Together, with a little careful negotiation, they'll come to terms with their different business styles and so much more.
