Ryan Murphy is a wounded man. He’s retreated behind a façade of indifference and refuses to commit to anyone or anything besides his work. No woman has been able to break through his hard shell since he was jilted at the altar, an experience that left him anti-woman and anti-commitment.
Enter Jennifer Kowalski, a no-nonsense tomboy who lives life to the fullest and gives herself over to everything she does. She is a woman who can fire up in a heartbeat and has the red hair to match. A tempest in a chamomile teacup, she is a breath of fresh air in Ryan’s sour life.
Ryan and Jenn are attorneys in the District Attorney’s Office. When their boss throws them together to head up a new team, old wounds and long-buried desires flash to the surface. Ryan pushes everyone away, can Jenn pull him in before he says goodbye?
