“I wish that I had Jessie's Girl" 🎶
Successful Texas lawyer, Reade Walker, curses that damn song every time it plays, all too aware of the irony of its lyrics. After all, he has been secretly and painfully enamored with Jesse’s girl, Gwen, for nearly a decade. It was love at first sight for him, but sadly she’s not his girl. She belongs to his former best friend and the one man who betrayed him. Yet Reade can’t seem to love anyone except the one woman he can't have. Or can he 'make her mine'?
When Gwen Clark’s senator husband runs off with his intern and all their money, the ensuing scandal turns her life upside down. Deserted, penniless and desperate to provide for her six-year-old daughter, Gwen has no one to turn to but Reade Walker. The one man her heart desperately wants, but her pride dreads having to ask for help. Despite welcoming them into his home, it seems like Reade can barely stand being in the same room with her anymore, let alone under the same roof—in the same bedroom. But Gwen is determined to get her life back on track, and if that means dealing with another one-sided attraction, so be it. It is past time to rediscover her own dreams…if only she can keep her aching heart from breaking all over again.
