Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the man of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he'll finally see her as a desirable woman and not the awkward girl in the second office from the left. But when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, the man she wins is millionaire Niall Hunter, who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. He's the last man she wants to spend time with, but he's also her only option.
Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend’s little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture...especially when he promised his friend he’d stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he's not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can't stop wanting her. Can't stop touching her. Can't stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to...

I have mixed feelings on this book. You have two people that are experiencing a lot of emotional stress in their lives. They really need each other. The reader can feel their range of emotions from happy, sad, to passion. On the other side the language and a good portion of the intimate scenes just took away from the romance.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Entangled Publishing for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.

This was a absolutely wonderful read, and the ending was totally worth the whole read.
