I need to hire a wife. But I only want my assistant.

I'm Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I'm not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I'm ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she's far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was far too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined that she could consume me until I more than crave her. But she's harboring a secret that could tear us apart—just as I'm finally putting myself together.

This was an amazing read!!! A man who has never been loved and has no idea what it is to love another, learns from someone else. Realty crashes in on him and transform him into a reborn man. I loved these two together. Could not put my phone down ♥️

Crave another great read

Nia and Evans story is a great addition to the wonderful series. The way the story is built I did not want to put this book down. Nia is strong and brilliant where Evan is smart and lost, but they make each other whole when they are together. This was a story with some twists that I was not expecting. Shayla Black did not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. Because you always get to see what’s going on with all of the other couples for this series.
