He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.
When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.
Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.

I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this one.
This is the type of second chance romance that I ADORE. The hero pulls some asshole move back in the day, and leaves the heroine weary of men. Now he’s back and is ALL about getting her back anyway he can. That part of the book was really good.
That said, unfortunately this one was ALL over the place with angst due to a third party. Now I KNEW where this was going the MINUTE the heroine and this other person were introduced. The signs were not at all subtle. Eve was an excited girl, after all my motto isThat said, it wasn’t executed in a very believable way. I never felt that loved each other enough to make me believe the ending. I mean Kane didn’t even TELL River he was involved with this other person whom he dumped in favor of going after her. She found out by I needed less angst and jealousy, and more relationship building.
So, overall since I did love the whole second chance love thing, and I do love aI’m going to be generous and give this a 3 star rating.
