Summary

A woman hides from the spotlight—and her own broken heart—in a smart, sassy novel that’s a "heady mix of love, loss, law and celebs” (Allie Spencer).    For Jane Porter, being a pop star’s girlfriend was a dream come true—until her big-time boyfriend started playing around and the paparazzi turned on her like a pack of hyenas.   Now in a new city with a new look, Jane has retreated to work a quietly anonymous job in a patent law firm—at least until the furor dies down. Besides, some good old-fashioned hard work will help repair her shattered confidence.   Then she meets patent lawyer Marshall Winfield—sweet, clever and dealing with the aftermath of his own romantic disaster—who might just be the cure for Jane’s broken heart.   But with the press still hot on Jane’s heels and an office troublemaker hell-bent on making things difficult, do Jane and Marsh stand any chance of finding happiness together?   "Fresh and fun, Rhoda Baxter's debut novel is an entertaining read about learning to trust—and love—again.”—Talli Roland, author of The Hating Game
