He’ll play dirty to get what he wants…
Willow Cavanaugh would be happy if she never saw Nick Hamilton again. Sure, they had a short-lived fling many years ago, but now he’s back and acting like he wants a second chance. But Willow knows he’s way too much of a playboy to want to settle down with one woman. Plus, she’s got her heart set on a piece of real estate for her catering business that it turns out Nick owns…
Nick may be at the top of his game, but all he really seems to want is Willow. When he offers to sell Willow his commercial space if she agrees to a series of dates with him, jumping back into bed after each one seems like an inevitability. But what about when real feelings get involved?
