It's Not Easy Being Right...

Vanessa Campbell is a CPA by day and a perfectionist by night. She's fit, successful... and decidedly lonely. She can't stop thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron. He's just like her: smart, attractive, and usually right — 
except when dealing with her.

...But Someone's Got To Do It.

Cameron McCauley likes Vanessa a little too well. She's a blond goddess with a razor-sharp tongue. She hates to be wrong, just like him. But she can hold a grudge and is stubborn to a fault — 
also like him.

A past misunderstanding has them rubbing each other the wrong way. Cam is dying to shake Vanessa up — get her to let loose. 

But if he succeeds, can his heart handle it?


 A woman like Vanessa had her own mind. He respected that about her. But he refused to be constantly maneuvered in this relationship. They would be equals. Not one dominant over the other, even if the woman had a reputation for running right over anyone who opposed her fascist sense of right. She needed a man she could trust, one who wouldn’t bow to her every whim. She needed him.
With that in mind, he called the one person he knew would help him, no questions asked.
She picked up on the third ring. “Hello?”
“Abby, it’s Cam.”
“Oh, hi, Cam. Don’t you sound all grown up on the phone.”
He laughed. “Thanks. I think.”
“What can I do for you? Just name it.”
Her desire to help pleased him. “I need help. Vanessa has volunteered herself to spend Valentine’s Day with my mother, but I had plans for our first holiday together.”
“Oh. Hmm.” She paused. “You know, Mike talked to Brody and Flynn about this just this morning. I’m sure he’ll be calling you soon. He was planning to surprise your mom. An evening out, just the two of them at dinner. I told him Vanessa would watch Colin, since she’d volunteered to help in the first place.”
“That won’t work.” Not if he planned to have her to himself for the better part of the night.
“No. I see that. Hold on.” She muffled the phone and told Brody something before she came back. “Cam?”
“Yeah?” He grinned, wondering why she sounded so breathless all of a sudden.
“Stop that.” She cleared her throat. “Sorry, not you. The plumber is distracting me.”
He heard Brody say something he couldn’t make out, but it made Abby laugh.
New love. He envied them. “Tell him to shut up so you can help me.”
“I did. Brody, sit.”
He wondered if she realized she used that exact same tone on Hyde—the dog.
“So we need to get another babysitter,” she was saying. “No problem. I have just the person.”
“Someone trustworthy, I take it?”
“Cam, you wound me. Truly. Look. Kim and Robin are perfect to watch Colin. If they won’t work, between me and Maddie, we have a ton of other friends who can successfully keep Colin out of danger—and jail—while you romance Vanessa.”
Brody’s laugh came over the phone loud and clear. “Vanessa? You’re a real risk taker, Cam. My hero.”
