"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me."— Stephenie Meyer
“Do you ever leave the house wearing just your robe?”
“I know my choice of clothes is oddly colorful sometimes, but I don’t go out of the house in what’s practically underwear.”
“Not even to get the mail or something?”
She turns around as we enter the small kitchen, pursing her lips. “What’s with all the questions?”
“Just wondering if any of your neighbors saw what I’m seeing right now. I might have to kill a few if the answer’s yes.”

Christopher Bennett is a persuasive man. With his magnetic charm and undeniable wit, he plays a key role in the international success of his family’s company.
Christopher adores his family, even if they can be too meddling sometimes. . .like when they recommend him to employ Victoria Hensley‘s decorating services for his new apartment in an attempt to set him up with her.
Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting.
Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents‘ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes.
But Victoria and Christopher‘s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts, and reading good-night stories to her sister Chloe.
Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn and. . .oh-so-persuasive.
When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?
