Publisher Description

He's a powerful billionaire who wants only one thing—my heart.

After leaving my abusive ex-boyfriend, I've lived a double life working as an executive assistant during the day and a burlesque performer at night. All that changes when the sexy CEO of my company walks into the club during my show.

Nikola offers me a tempting proposal—he wants to mix business with pleasure. I can't deny the heat between us that's hotter than any of my dance moves, but I'm scared to give up my freedom for another man. Especially a man like Nikola, who is determined to always be in control.

I need to decide if I'm ready to risk my heart again. But when my past catches up with me, will I be strong enough to fight for the happiness I've always longed for?

Great story!

Good grief, Nikola Collins!! This book—what a delicious, romantic ride! This is the first time I read Tiffany Patterson’s romance book, but this will not be the last. This book is an unputdownable, fun, flirty, and yet suspenseful, sensual, and an emotional story at the same time. Nikola Collins became the CEO of Excel Financial Services Corp. at a young age after his father passed away. His father trained him to take over the company, since he was the oldest, after his father retired, but he never got the chance to retire. Nikola is an enigma of a man who is a very handsome billionaire, playboy extraordinaire, overconfident, most eligible bachelor, workaholic, arrogant, and he usually gets what he wants—right now, he want Devyn. Devyn Williams is a beautiful Black independent woman who is good at her job, and she works for Nikola’s brother, Andre who is CFO, as his administrative assistant. Devyn has always had a crush on her boss’s brother, but she would never show it at work. Unbeknownst to Devyn, Nikola had a crush on her for three years—since she started working for his brother. There is no denying the attraction, but the chemistry like the one they have can only be denied for so long. Devyn has a secret that she does not want anyone from her job to know, especially Nikola, what she does outside of work. What is Devyn’s secret? Devyn encountered problems with her abusive ex-boyfriend, Marcus, of five years, and she became a force to be reckoned with. Everything about Nikola and Devyn seemed too good to be true, but none of that mattered until a situation with Devyn’s ex-boyfriend turns her idyllic life upside down. Find out what happened—you will be astonished! Their journey is intoxicatingly quirky, perfectly paced and all-around fun with a surprise HEA. I can’t wait to read the book 2 of Mercedes (Devyn’s BFF) and Raul’s (Nikola BF) story.

Because I am not a fan of third person narrative, I could not give it a five star rating. The story was good, but in my opinion, I think the first person narrative can raise the emotional stakes in the story because the first person is living the action in the story and can put more emphasis on how the story is told.
