But when morning dawns, Jaden leaves her sleeping Mr. Oh So Sexy behind, sure they'll never see each other again.

But despite his success and glamour, he's routinely had to suffer uninspiring dates and doomed relationships. With a romantic heart, Ivan's not the love-‘em-and-leave-‘em type.

The nearly 3000 miles between Miami and L.A. that once threatened their happily-ever-after now seem nothing more than a mere geographical challenge—nothing a few hours on a plane and a sexy weekend rendezvous can't trump. No time apart is too long to keep him from wanting her in his arms and in his bed. He's absolutely sure Jaden is his dream come true.
Jaden Thorne is living the life she's always wanted. She's got her one-in-a-million job on a TV cooking show, she's achieved celebrity chef status, and she's in a committed relationship with her perfect guy… Then the network's surprise decision to add a co-host to her show takes a bite out of her perfectly balanced life and career. With a new man in the mix, living the dream gets a whole lot more complicated both personally and professionally.
