It was supposed to have been his twin, Cole, refurbishing cabinets on the trendy cable show, but when his brother has a scheduling conflict, Zack Bailey gets drafted to replace him. Never one to court the limelight, Zack wants nothing more than to get this TV malarkey over with and return to his construction company.
The host of Do It Herself, Megan Danbury, is no more thrilled to have the grumpy carpenter on set than he is to be there. From the moment they lay eyes on each other, they clash like dogs and donkeys. Megan is certain the contentious taping is a rank disaster, but their onscreen animosity turns out to be a hit with audiences, and now her boss insists she must persuade Zack to cohost the show.
Zack wants to say ‘no’ but finding out Megan could lose her job if he doesn’t, convinces him to agree and the next thing he knows, Zach finds himself hankering to become Megan’s DIY groom…
Cole Bailey’s eccentric billionaire grandfather issues an edict. If his grandsons don’t settle down soon, he’ll sell the controlling interest in the family business. After losing a coin toss to his twin brother, Zach, Cole’s gotta go first. On the hunt for a bride, Cole crashes a high society wedding and comes face-to-face with his high school pal, Tess Morgan.
The formerly shy, overweight bookworm is no longer the pushover who did Cole’s homework for him. At the reception, Tess goads him into a game of pool. Just to keep things interesting, Cole suggests a wager. If he wins, she must help him find the perfect woman to wed.
Losing the bet is one thing, but playing matchmaker for the heartthrob who still causes her pulse to race is another matter entirely. Does Tess stand a chance of convincing Cole that she’s the one he’s been waiting for all along?
