Billionaire software developer Parker Braxton knows everyone wants something from him. That's why he made a multi-million-dollar bachelor pact with his friends to never marry. But he never counted on running into, literally, the quiet but sensual Layla Fallon.
Layla isn't afraid of hard work. Still, there is no light at the end of her student-loan tunnel. When Stuck-Up Suit—Parker Braxton—accidentally runs her over, it's the last things she needs. She refuses his help, but he's persistent. He’s also handsome, kinder than she ever expected, and she’s doing her best to ignore her attraction. Which is harder than it sounds when she’s recuperating at his penthouse.
Sparks fly. Hearts flutter. But falling for Layla could cost Parker more than just several million dollars.
It started with a bang...okay, something like that. In his haste to reach the hospital where his mother was brought to, Parker is distracted and ...runs Layla over. Literally. He hits her with his car. Afterwards, he takes her back home to his place to take care of her and make sure that she is well. I mean, at least as well as you can be with a concussion and all.
Things develop rather quickly from there. There may or may not be a fake engagement involved as well as cookies, coats and ...well...a bunch of friends who agreed to never marry.
When your own demons collide with your feelings, it isn't always easy to do the right thing - and it gets even more difficult when life puts some spokes in your wheel.
Stuck-up-suit Parker and Layla are a wonderful couple. You realize from the first why Parker is drawn to her despite his reservations and convictions and Layla, well, who could resist a guy who is so charming and so determined to do the right things. Layla is sweet and you just have to love her so it is easy to see why Parker falls for her.
This is one of those books that won't necessarily stay with you after you have closed the book but it is a very nice and very charming book that I really enjoyed reading. If you are looking for sweet and nice, this is the book of your choice!
