Threatened with dismissal from her journalist’s job, Bailey Stoddart needs a miracle. If she scoops some dirt from visiting Olympic gold medal rower Connor Freeman, she should be safe.


But Connor doesn’t give interviews. The euphoria from his Olympic win has faded and left him flat. If he can’t regain his enthusiasm before training resumes, he’ll lose his place in the crew. Even though Bailey’s a nosy newshound, she does love the sport. Could she revive his lost passion? A deal perhaps: an interview from him, a weekend posing as his girlfriend from her.


Their unexpected friendship is jeopardised by a past mistake that could destroy everything. How can he persuade her to stay now? Or has this become an even greater challenge than winning that Olympic gold medal?
