Her husband of four years and boyfriend since college has just left her for another woman. In desperate need of a fresh start, Whitney, a scrappy tomboy from South Georgia, moves to New York to live with her aunt, who runs the most successful PR and talent management firm on the east coast. With time on her hands waiting on a basketball coaching job, Whitney agrees to work for her aunt and finds herself as an overqualified errand girl and dog walker for one of the firm’s highest profile clients, pro quarterback, Blake Maxwell.
Whitney is the complete opposite of Blake’s usual blond and famous type, but for some reason he falls hard for this messy-haired girl in cut-offs and running shoes, who can make him laugh and talk sports and hunting with him in her cute Georgia accent. Whitney, who has no intentions of getting into a relationship so soon after heartbreak, sees a fun fling with a hot quarterback as a way feel human again. At worst it would be one hell of a story to tell her sister.
However, a fling is not on Blake’s mind. For the first time, he has fallen in love and Whitney is the only girl he could ever marry. After spending an idyllic week on his Texas ranch, with a persistent Blake tentatively winning over what’s left of her heart, they return to the city and are immediately blindsided by some serious hurdles: The New York press descends to expose Blake’s latest conquest; Whitney’s soon-to-be ex-husband shows up on her doorstep begging for forgiveness; and a psycho ex-girlfriend of Blake’s runs to the tabloids claiming she’s pregnant. But those crises pale in comparison to the life-threatening head injury Blake suffers in a game, possibly changing the man that has finally taught Whitney how to love again.
