Description

She’s a beauty, but he’s just a geek.

The world might think billionaire Xavier Gaines has it all, but he’s got a big problem. His successful software company is about to sign a government contract that’ll land him smack in the glare of the public limelight, and his lifelong battle with social anxiety has marked him as a cold, uncaring bastard in the eyes of the press. To dispel the unflattering image, he needs help, and there’s only one person he trusts with the job—Peyton Smoke. Gorgeous, kind, and funny, she agrees to be his media relations director and soon imbeds herself so deeply in his life, his world will crumble if anything upsets the balance. He cannot screw up their solid unit. No matter how achingly he desires her. Yet, how is he supposed to resist when she tugs emotions from him he didn’t think he was capable of experiencing? Especially since it appears he’s not the only one fighting their undeniable attraction.

Ever-after just might be possible...if he can convince her to believe in love again.

Peyton Smoke is looking for a change, and working at Gaines Industries has given her the boost she needs to fill the empty void in her life. Xavier is the perfect boss. Under his seemingly callous, frigid demeanor lies a compassionate man who cares about causes and those precious few he lets into his inner circle. What she wasn’t prepared for is the smoldering passion suddenly flaring between them, nor the hot-as-sin alpha side beneath the layer of sexy nerd. Getting involved with him puts more than her job at risk. She’s been trampled one too many times, and she vowed never to leave herself vulnerable again. But the heart wants what the heart wants. If only she can figure out whether his feelings are genuine or if this is a mistaken case of gratitude wrapped in lust, then their shot at forever may not seem like such a fruitless hope.

"Moran pulls you in and does...Not. Let. Go. Hot, heartfelt, and hard to put down."
~Molly McLain, USA Today Bestselling Author

Sweet and Sexy Perfection

I loved this couple and this storyline. Ms. Moran's writing was insightful, engaging, amusing, and clever observant.

Great couple great read

Great read. Xander and Peyton have known each other since high school, she was the cheer leader he was the geek. Now he is the CEO of a company that is now a millionaire. The chemistry is smoking between them can they make it work even though they work together and with Xander's social anxiety and Peyton's fears of being left. This book is a great read and you don't want to put it down. Kelly Moran has made you fall in love with a great couple and the other characters in this book and you are rooting for them.

Xavier is NOT your typical Billionaire

I really enjoyed the dymanic between Xavier and Peyton. The ins and outs of Xavier's personality made this story multi-faceted. I really enjoyed the reasons of how he behaved, being more about social anxiety than arrogance. Peyton has had a lot of heartache in her life and I think it was great how that was told. I really liked thow the story started with a little background then fast forwarded two years.

Great Story!
