She’s stealing his livelihood out from under him. It doesn’t make him want her any less.
Kalpani Desai has one goal: own the most popular salon in Pittsburgh. She has no room in the workplace for a tenant, let alone a romantic partner in her life. She’s seen the disastrous effects of marriage on too many women of her culture—and that’s a hard no. If only the tenant she has to kick out of her new building wasn’t floundering artist (wonderfully sweet and sexy ex-flame) Jonah Walker. Still, she can’t allow guilt—or desire—to derail her plans. Little does she know, Jonah is far more than the laid-back creative type he seems. He’s got career goals—but he wants Kalpani to be his even more. How can he prove that he's the best partner ever—an asset she can't possibly live without?
