After seventeen years of marriage and comfortable suburban life, devoted wife, mother, and psychotherapist Dani Santino is in for an unpleasant wake-up call: her husband has been cheating. Dani promptly kicks him to the curb, but she soon discovers divorce is a costly – and messy – business. (And she's already got the pinched nerve and drained bank account to prove it.)
Luckily, an encounter with the trainer for the local pro football team offers solutions to both of those problems, and soon Dani has landed herself a new client: the team's troubled wide receiver, Terrence "TK" King, who has developed a bad habit of dropping the ball. With her soon-to-be-ex fighting dirty and her credit cards frozen, Dani could certainly use the generous paycheck from the Hawks to help TK. But as she quickly learns, earning that paycheck – and TK's trust – won't be easy.
And as if a violent client with boundary issues isn't enough, Dani's also got a delinquent daughter, meddling mother, sleazy PI tail, and mounting custody battle on her hands. Good thing that when it comes to standing up for herself, reigning in rebellious teenagers, and helping her clients tackle their toughest issues, Dr. Dani's not afraid to get rough.
