Things are starting to heat up in Atlanta, or at least in Jane’s celibate life of two years. On the two year anniversary of her nasty split between her and her ex, Jane’s friends, Molly – class “A” filthy mouth – and Albert – flamboyant dresser extraordinaire – decide it’s high time Jane drops the conservative persona, let loose and start to have some fun once again.
Brady Matthews, Atlanta Braves first baseman and well known through the media as Atlanta’s gigolo, thought he was just taking his new teammate, Michael Banks, out on the town. Little did he know Michael’s friend from college, Jane, was going to show up at their table and turn his world upside down.
When Brady meets Jane, he is instantly attracted to Jane’s innocence and inner sex kitten but the last thing she wants is to be thrown into another relationship with such a publicly known man-whore especially after her heart was broken so devastatingly. Brady makes it his mission to win Jane over and make her see him as the man he actually is, not the way the media perceives him. But it is not that simple. Wedding plans, spring training, ex’s, old college friends, the paparazzi and gossip magazines seem to keep getting in the way of Brady’s goal to earn Jane’s heart.
Caught Looking goes through the love lives of Jane, Brady and their group of friends fighting the hardships of cheating, trusting, losing love and trying to find it once again. In one of America’s hottest cities, the gang heats up the sheets while their lives entangle together causing heartache, suffering through loss and finding love….hopefully.
“What the hell are you doing here?” Jane shouted. “I gave you a key for emergency reasons only!”
“Girl, this is an emergency, have you seen your eyebrows? They’ve become one!” Molly said. “I have come to rescue you from your January 23rd self-destruction. I will not sit back again and listen to Mr. Mendez bitch about how he had to poke you for 5 minutes so you would get out of the stairway. It is time you get out of this rut you are in.”
“What rut? I’m doing fine for myself, thank you very much. JB Events is really starting to take off!”
“Yea, great your business is doing well, wonderful! What about your sex life? Or how about a social life?” Molly retorted. “If I go in your bedroom right now I bet I will find a couple of vibrators with worn out batteries.”
“MOLLY! Jeeze, is there a censor on that mouth of yours? So I haven’t had any men lately, I have been focused on work.”
