I’m angry and ticked off. Period. End of story.
Well, that’s not entirely true. It’s the start of the story, actually.
I’m August Hawkins, and I’m the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.
But right now, I’m cranky and sick of being “Mr. Nice Guy,” especially working for a record label that’s run by my ex-girlfriend and her new fiancé. And that’s not even the worst of it. The label signs a sultry, sexy, and shameless singer, and they want me to manage her.
Perfect plan, right? No chance. This mischievous singer just so happens to be the same irresistible woman I spent one night with on my first night in New Orleans. And now Scarlett, the sex-pot-jazz crooner, isn’t playing nice with her seductive ways and tantalizing body.
She knows I’m too nice to play dirty, but it’s all I want. Some way, somehow, I need to cure this Scarlett fever.
