“While attempting to move on from her failed marriage, Chelsea Levin receives an offer from Dean Westley, New Jersey's notorious playboy millionaire. For a week she can share his house, as long as they keep it professional. Unaware of his true motives, she accepts his offer but soon finds herself wildly attracted to him.      

After being branded cold hearted by the media, Dean attempts to change his wayward reputation by using Chelsea. As he struggles to hide his past secrets, he quickly begins developing feelings for her - and succumbing to temptation. To heal each other, they must heal together. But the past is hard to overcome and when Chelsea learns to trust again, Dean's secrets emerge.”

OH MY! I REALLY enjoyed this book. It was an easy read, but kept me interested all the way through. This is the type of story that women might fantasize about happening to them, well not the whole story but the part where she would meet a sexy hot millionaire who also happens to be great in bed!! I must say this is not an erotic romance, but there were some very steamy love scenes that kept this jaded reader very happy.

Near the end, it became heart wrenching and I was sobbing for the heroine Chelsea. I was hoping for a HEA and then the ending gave me one that was so good that I added another 1/2 star to my rating.

This was my first read from Melinda Hale and I can assure you it won't be my last.
