He’ll give her everything she desires…except his identity.

Flower shop owner Alexa Conroy had it all before the recession hit and her customers fled to cheaper shopping grounds. Desperate to make ends meet, she sells her dream home and moves into the rundown apartments above her shop. When she spots six feet of sexy distraction—complete with muscles, piercings, and tattoos—ripping up flooring, Alexa knows the karmic windfall she’s due just landed on her doorstep.

And the attraction’s definitely not one-sided.

Dillon James, reluctant heir to the corporation about to foreclose on Alexa’s shop, is not about to jeopardize their scorching chemistry by admitting he’s not the building’s handyman. But with only weeks until her business goes under and his identity is revealed, Dillon must find a way to convince Alexa cooperation isn’t a dirty word, help her save the shop from his brother’s greed, and persuade her that he’s not the enemy…or risk losing the only woman who’s seen the real him.

The author pretty much had me at hello when she described Dillon.

Let me start by saying that when I first saw the summary for this on goodreads I was sold. I mean, come on, a guy with piercings and tattoos? If we were in a bookstore and there was a line about a mile long with people waiting to purchase books and get home, I’d have knocked them all out ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Cari Quinn

USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story - a bible parable - in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars. When she's not scribbling furiously, she can usually be found watching men's college basketball, playing her music way too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.
