Sometimes love equals nothing. Umm...in tennis terms, that is.
Abbigail Arden is a fledgling journalist, neurotic ice cream addict, quirky klutz extroadinaire. She also happens to have sworn off all men and has an extreme dislike of sports, which makes for an interesting first assignment at the American Cup, a premier tennis tournament held in the US each year.
Much to Abbie's chagrin and vocal protestations to her (totally evil) editor, she must interview one Max Tadeo, a drool-worthy, blue-eyed Spanish hottie that melts more than Abbie's dish of ice cream when she first lay eyes on him through the frustratingly inpenetrable glass of the TV screen.
Armed with a school girl sized crush on her dishy interview subject, a drive to succeed in her life's work though she is frightened to the core, and a mouth that doesn't quite know when to shush, she heads off to the big city and her assignment. Here, a sense of belonging envelops Abbie when she has no desire for it, new, unexpected friendships develop and investigative reporting takes a life-threatening twist. The ride is bumpy, and she's unsure. Does Abbie choose to live for fear or for love? And where in the world would her choice lead her? What is she to do? 'Cause you know, Abbie has to figure out...sometimes love equals nothing.
Or sometimes everything at all.
