Sue Finley murdered people...on paper. As a mystery writer, she knew all the angles, who did what and why. The only thing she couldn't explain was...well, men. Dating was like diving into a box of chocolates: sometimes the sweetest-looking specimens were candy-coated poison. After a breakup with a bank robber and a divorce from a cross-dresser, she gave it up for good. Then came Detective Jason Dodd. Raised in foster homes, Jason swore never to need anyone as much as the parents who'd abandoned him. That was why he failed to follow up after experiencing the best kiss of his life.

Macy is focused on putting herself through law school - which means being the delivery girl for Papa's Pizza.

How could she let him con her into feeling so damn much?

He's handier with a pistol than a wrench, and she's about to see more action than Jason Statham.
