Publisher Description

A sexy new standalone contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

Never disappointed

I just love Katy Evans' books! I have not read one of her books yet that I did not enjoy. Her stories are funny, sexy, sad and "Real" Lol!

To thine own self be true, ,


Here it goes. I have a library full of my beloved books and all authors, including Katy and this book is hard for me to review but I have to do it. As an author I am no expert but as the reader I am. Aaric kept me reading because I hoped at some point he would become the alpha. He did not. Why write in the contemporary, erotica genre and not deliver any. The story had a many chances to reach out and grab on but took none. Aaric and Miranda could have been so much more but not nearly the miss that Aaric and I cannot even remember her name (little bit) were. No chemistry what so ever Maybe for others. I suspect that the real story and chemistry lies with the brother Cole who was having sex with Miranda (Aaric's fiancé of convenience) and even that reveal was like yup...Maybe others will connect differently cause thats the win right? When your readers are so invested they cannot let go. Katy has done many series so I know she can. This is not it. This is not even a harlequin. Sorry. But its important to hear both the great and not so great...maybe the book just belonged in the normal romance section.
