    Summary

    “Somebody used me to put out the truth about Ted Lasso, so I thought I’d tell the truth about them, and now it’s my turn to tell you the truth about that. There we go. Truths all around. Can I get you some water?”

    “No,” his editor waves him away, coughing, “you stay right over there away from me, it’s clear this American stupidity is catching.”

    She sits heavily down behind her desk and takes a swig of coffee. Trent folds his arms and waits.

    “Trent Crimm,” she says finally, “you’re a bloody moron and I’m going to have to fire you.”

    “Fair enough,” says Trent.

     

    In 48 hours, Trent Crimm lands a scoop, implodes his career and makes some drastic life decisions.

    Coach Lasso,

    I can assure you that my transfer has nothing to do with your club's relegation, nor is there anything that Richmond has done in error. Rather, I have spoken with my editors and we’ve agreed that this is the most appropriate course of action.

    I wish you all the best in the season.

    Summary

    Alina and Mal are taking a break. Which is good. Of course it's good. They've been together since they were teenagers, so it's healthy to see what life is like without each other. Unfortunately, Alina isn't quite sure who she is without Mal.
    Then she meets a mysterious man named Aleksander while working a party for the wealthy elite. He promises to help her forget all about her ex, and after a mindblowing one night stand, it seems to work. She's ready to move forward with her life.
    Or...try at least.
    But old habits die hard and Alina falls back into her relationship with Mal, this time with a new shiny rock on her finger. Which should be just fine. Until Aleksander Morozova buys Duke Keramsov's company. Suddenly, her one night stand is her AND her fiance's boss. And he clearly hasn't forgotten her. Nor does he have any intention of doing so.
    After all, he has a promise to keep.

    Summary

    Alexandre sighs, exasperated. “But you war reporters are all the same. Egotistical at best, egomaniacal at worst.”
    “So then what are you accomplishing?” Alina snaps. “What, tangibly, is the UN? An umbrella that comes down when it rains?”

    Alina has cut her teeth on war zones and crises. She can write an article and file it in under 20 minutes. She can decipher multiple languages; she can get people to divulge precious information with ease. So why, then, can she not handle Ambassador Morozov?
