Neighbors don't kiss and tell.
A disastrous marriage is reason enough for Sacha to give up on men. When the sexy playboy moves in next door, he turns her regimented life on its head until she no longer trusts herself to be near him.
She doesn't need a man or family to make her happy, but why won't he believe her?
How did he miss the warning signs? Lucas fell for his beautiful neighbor after one ridiculous encounter. What begins as a challenge, turns into something unexpected.
It feels real, but what does he know about this kind of love? And is the way she feels about family a dealbreaker?
5 * "I loved this book. Once I started I didn't want to stop. The characters felt real with real life problems and even the dirt bag ex husband found some humanity in the end." ~ Bren C
5* "The animosity between the main characters slowly gives way to real feelings! There was just enough drama from the rest of the characters to weave a really good story!" ~ C Johnson

The Millionaire's Seduction
Cheryl Phipps is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and women's fiction. Married for forty plus years (a teenage bride, no less) to her own 'the one', and at the beck and call of a handful (or two) of grandchildren, she loves weaving sensual stories that celebrate love, family and resilience, as well as delivering a heart-racing, happy ending, with a sprinkle of humor.
This was an enjoyable read. I loved the flow of the book, the emotions, the frustration, spice and romance. It was something I’ve been looking for a long time, very easy going and relaxing. The cat and mouse game was frustrating and entertaining at the same time, but they did it. I’m glad Sacha confronted her ex-husband and tried to make peace in her life before making thing serious with Lucas.
The millionaire next door
A wonderful book. Great story line and great characters.with a happy ending great read truly enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. Happy reading
Don’t bother finishing. It doesn’t get better.
I couldn’t finish the book—I did however speed read and chapter hop the second half. There’s too much to do in a day than to be caught up in a bad story! I thought I’d grow to at least like Sacha, but the writing is clunky, the plot formulaic, and the entirety lacked prose.
Things just seemed to happen, and you are told rather than shown. It would’ve done much better at half the length it is, but instead the book dragged on like a chore. I picked it up because I was in the mood for some cheesy fun millionaire fantasy, but it was only predictable.
The characters were boring and shallow despite the attempt at depth. It felt insincere and convenient and it would’ve been better for the author to leave out those personality/character additions if they were not going to be done justice.
