"As an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist, Dillon Slater had one of the most dangerous jobs in the military. Now, he's enjoying the pace of life in Shelter Bay, where he teaches high school physics. He still gets to blow things up, but as the school basketball coach he also gets to impart leadership skills. His latest minefield: fifteen-year-old Matt Templeton; and Matt's irresistible mother. Claire Templeton moved her troubled teenage son to the small town of Shelter Bay to escape the bad influences at his school in L.A. But when his attitude earns her a visit from the handsome basketball coach, she wonders if this role model might be too much of a temptation--for her. Because though she isn't looking for a relationship, she can't seem to resist Dillon's playful charm. But what she doesn't realize is that Dillon isn't playing games; he's playing for keeps."-- P.  of cover.
