By the end of the first day at her new job, Collette Bellamont believes she must be the world's worst social worker. The graduate admissions counselor tried to tell her she wouldn't survive the rigors of the job. Now her coworkers are acting like they can't stand her, and her parents had never wanted her to pursue a social work career in the first place. Unfortunately she's required to fulfill her one-year contract or she has to repay the university the cost of her full tuition, which is more than she's making at the agency this year.
Enter sexy marriage and family therapist Mark Wilcox, and suddenly things don't look as bleak. That is, until she remembers he's the admissions counselor who tried to discourage her from getting her Master's Degree. Proving him wrong gives her a reason to hang on a bit longer.
Once she discovers he's her divorced parents' marriage therapist, their relationships unravels. While confidentiality laws kept him from disclosing the truth, she struggles with forgiving him for taking sides. Will they work through their differences to have their own happily ever after?
