Lizzie Bennington is on the brink of winning her first title in a mixed doubles match at the Boca Raton tournament when Jack Archer, Lizzie's competitor across the net, stops play complaining of leg cramps. As she watches the trainer's hands move up Jack's muscular loin, Lizzie tries to keep her composure, but she cannot hide her admiration. When Jack catches an unwitting look of prurient pleasure in Lizzie's eye, the real game between the plucky, spirited beauty and the reckless, thrill-seeking playboy begins.
But Jack's overtures only anger Lizzie. She can't forget the unsportsmanlike stunt that lost her the Boca match. She knows he is a notorious playboy. What's more, Christina Richter is his partner off the court as well as on it. Still, Lizzie cannot deny her attraction. When she finally gives in, the relationship is threatened not only by Christina but by the number one men's player, Rodolfo Salazar, a volatile sexy Spaniard, who would like nothing better than to cross the net to get to Lizzie before Jack does.
Even so, no one stands in the way of Lizzie and Jack's union more than Lizzie and Jack themselves. Only ti me will tell if two players on opposite sides of the net can find love.
