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.
Evan & Nia
We got a glimpse of Evan in the 3rd book and I gotta say I was looking forward to his book. He had just lost his wife and unborn child in a car accident. He tells his sister in book 3 that he can never love again so he was going to look for his next wife like he would a business deal. I just love contract marriages!
Things don't go according to plan for Evan when he starts noticing his very efficient executive assistant when he sees her outside the office for the first time. In a way, it shows how loyal Evan was to his first wife that he never looked else where. It takes Nia dressed down looking like women do when they are not in business mode for him to see a different side of her.
I found it funny how clueless men can be sometimes. Evan is such an analytical man. Emotions are unchartered territory for him and it's completely believable. When you learn his childhood and how he met his wife it makes sense why he thought that was love.
Normally I prefer a man to go after what he wants and that is what Evan does, he just doesn't know it's for more reasons than what he states. I guess that's why I still enjoyed this despite Evan's claims of not being able to love again.
This had some nice twists in the story that kept things interesting. It also had a few silly things thrown in as well. Overall, I enjoyed Evan and Nia's story. I'm curious if we will be getting the other half siblings story. What little we saw of her, I wasn't impressed but that doesn't mean the author can't change things around for her.
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 ♥️
This is a beautiful story, well written and classic for this author’s style. I have several of her series books, and she never gets dull. Good Job Lady!!!!
