ONE IN A MILLION
ONE IN A MILLION (4) by Abby Gaines & Marisa Carroll: In “No Ordinary Man” by Gaines, NASCAR driver Eli Ward needs to tame his playboy reputation and focus on racing to keep his sponsorship. When he meets NASCAR gopher Jen, he persuades her to become his pretend girlfriend, but makes it clear the arrangement will never turn permanent. In Carroll’s “Daisy Chain,” millionaire Quinn Parrish feels responsible for his deceased stepbrother’s pregnant girlfriend, Daisy Brookshire. He offers her sanctuary in his home after a car accident leads to a premature delivery. Gaines delivers an entertaining tale while tackling commitment issues, whereas Carroll offers a sweet story short on sexual chemistry.
