Peek Inside One Real Man

Amidst an ugly divorce and an even uglier scandal, Paige Kerrigan has returned to her parents' estate to hide out until things blow over. While she's enjoying a late-night naked swim, however, she's shocked to find Owen Bellamy— her family's former cute pool boy—standing poolside. Now he's all hot, grown up, and renting the Kerrigan property...and he's definitely not forgiven Paige for how she used to treat him. Owen will finally have his revenge...by offering her a place to stay as his housekeeper. Yet Paige isn't the person he remembers. But the last thing Owen can afford is to give his heart to the same woman who once broke it.

She’s right where he wants her…

Amidst an ugly divorce and an even uglier scandal, Paige Kerrigan has returned to her parents’ estate to hide out until things blow over. While she’s enjoying a late-night naked swim, however, she’s shocked to find Owen Bellamy—her family’s former cute pool boy—standing poolside. Now he’s all hot, grown up, and renting the Kerrigan property…and he’s definitely not forgiven Paige for how she used to treat him.

Once, the beautiful but spoiled Paige Kerrigan was everything Owen wanted. Now she’s broke and Owen finally has his revenge…by offering her a place to stay as his housekeeper. Yet Paige isn’t the person he remembers. Instead, she’s far more than he imagined, and far more irresistible than is safe. But the last thing Owen can afford is to give his heart to the same woman who once broke it.

Praise

Review

"A sizzling romance between two people who considered each other enemies."

"...a quick-paced love story, genuine in its exploration of such themes as betrayal, distrust, class differences, selflessness, sacrifice, and forgiveness."

"Excellent read! This is a great reunion story." 

"I absolutely loved the way they circle each other, the way they are both baffled by each other and simultaneously want and don't want each other." 

"Kwan creates characters that are absolutely realistic and very delicate. None of their actions ever felt forced; the drama perfect and heart clenching. But amidst all the drama, a sweet romance between two enemies turned lovers bloomed althroughout the book." ~ Mischievous Reads
