He promised to stay away…but some promises are made to be broken
Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the prince of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he'll finally see her as a desirable swan and not the ugly duckling 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. She's determined not to let her guard down again—among other things—around the infamous Irish lothario.
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...
Wow what a wonderful read! I loved the story and it has some strong as well as well developed characters. And the ending was just epic, brought tears to my eyes.
All Khloe wants is a date for a gala. She thinks she is love with her boss but he has never paid any attention to her. Now this is her last desperate attempt to make him notice her. But somehow she ends up with Niall being her date. She hates him and can't stand his presence so now she cannot even go the gala..
What Niall didn't expect was to see Khloe after three years and still have the same feelings for her. One woman he can never have is the one woman he wants most. He doesn't know what to do in this situation. On one hand he wants to help her but on the other hand he knows this isn't a good idea. he cannot betray his deceased friend by breaking his little sister's heart. Or maybe he has already done that. In any case he has to stay away but will he??
A very touching and romantic story, I enjoyed reading it a lot.
