For Rylan Cates, the gloriously sunny beachside town of Barefoot William may be home, but the pro baseball player needs to focus on spring training. Hiring a personal assistant to keep him and his four dogs organized for the next eight weeks is the first step--and Beth Avery is the perfect pinch hitter.
Beth is still looking for her place in the world, and a couple months caring for Rylan's two dachshunds, his golden retriever, and a Great Dane named Atlas should shore up her finances before she moves on. Except it's Atlas who won't budge, pushing her toward tanned, scruffy, sexy Rylan every chance he gets. One more strike and she's calling the dog out--unless she and Rylan admit that the attraction they're feeling is a game-winning grand slam. . . .

NO ONE LIKE YOU opens with Beth Avery walking four dogs. The great dane named Atlas decides to lay down and roll over in the street during Beth's trial run as a personal assistant for Rylan Cates, the aging star of the Richmond Rogues. Rylan hires Beth for two months while his team enjoys spring training in his hometown, giving his full time assistant an extended honeymoon. The temporary job is perfect for Beth as she wanders around the country, licking her wounds from a series of personal setbacks. Rylan hires Beth over other applicants after his dogs bond with her ... and he decides she is not his type. Yet he, too, finds her just as appealing as his dogs.
Rylan is content with his life until he meets Beth. He's the all American boy who realizes what he has been missing from his ideal life. In turn, Beth begins to trust again. NO ONE LIKE YOU is an easy breezy beach read ... which happens to take place in a beach town. NO ONE LIKE YOU is the perfect way to usher in the summer.
