As close friends and coworkers, attorney Zoe Riva and tech genius Connor Ashton know they can never get involved.
Until a scooter accident lands Zoe in Connor’s arms—and his overnight custody—and she starts to see a man she’s never seen before. With her career and her heart on the line, Zoe can’t afford to take any chances. But when combustible chemistry takes over, even the smartest people in the room can make the biggest of mistakes…
Zoe Riva looked down at the electric scooter and tried to portray an air of confidence. It was seven

the last person picked in gym class. Still, she could ride a scooter, right?
“Confidence, Zoe,” she told herself, not caring that anyone walking past would think she was
crazy. “You can do this.”
She had rented the scooter from a small bank of them near Rincon Park and planned to ride
down Embarcadero to Fisherman’s Wharf. Short and easy. No turns. Protected bike lane.
What could go wrong?
