Sportswriter Katie McIntyre thinks star pitcher Jason Price will be the perfect fling to help her forget her cheating ex. Their hook-up is supposed to end with breakfast.
But the coronavirus has other plans.
When Katie unexpectedly becomes her grandmother's full-time caretaker, the disoriented elderly woman thinks Jason is Katie's devoted beau. Katie pitches a pretend relationship to the star athlete. Jason knocks the fake-boyfriend ball out of the park.
Before long, their increasingly real alliance is tested by disastrous cooking, adult-themed donuts, and a hairless, irascible cat. And COVID quarantine has a way of magnifying one small secret (Katie's) and one tiny lie (Jason's.) The harder this pair falls, the greater the risk of those hidden truths.
If your heartstrings have been tugged by the feel-good rom-coms Beach Read, Well Met, or The Friend Zone, then pull up a chair, because The C Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you.
