A woman who has nothing.
Delia Woodson is desperate. That’s why she agrees to it. Because she’s a painter, no one is buying her paintings, and she’s desperate. She has bills to pay, food to buy. Someday she might actually want to live in her own apartment instead of on her friend's couch. And all she has to do is paint baby-faced angels on an indecently rich, corporate shill’s ceiling. Because, he just can’t think of any other way to spend his money? And she just can’t think of any other way to make it.
A man who wants for nothing.
Jack Cabot doesn’t want the mural his mother has commissioned for his office ceiling. He doesn’t want the distraction, he doesn’t want the silliness. He doesn’t want the artist now spending her days ten feet above his head. The artist with paint in her hair, distracting him. Bickering with him. Amusing him, until…Jack discovers he does want something after all. And all he has to do is convince Delia that she already has what every woman wants. Someone perfectly right for her.

Too much going on
I thought Justine and Paul's story was unnecessary here. Yes she is Delias best friend but beyond that there is no real interplay between this couple and the main characters. I liked Augusta but really? First she's Gus and then at the end Summer? I understand the author was trying to show her growth but it was unrealistic. The relationship between Delia and Jack was cute but they will never land in my favorite couples list. Ok for free. Would never have bought this .
Please stop glorifying getting secretly pregnant by lying to your significant other in order to get them to marry you. It doesn't work that way. Horrible storyline.
I enjoyed both story lines; the "Wildfire" love and the "slow reveal" love. My heart raced for one and resonated with the other. I've read Ms. Bryce's historical romances and now her contemporary. Her sharp wit and deep insight have me hooked. Great writing...I'll be back for more!
