But she's different. She's completely unruffled by his arrogance. And he's coming undone by her beauty. But Tessa can't afford to lose her job, which is only thing that keeps her from losing custody of her little brother to her money-hungry aunt and uncle. So, what happens when $10,000 of company money turns up in her account? Who put it there? And will it risk her relationship with her brother... and Seth?
Kenley Carmichael was fired for sleeping with her boss's husband, which sucks for many reasons, the big one being that it never happened. She's still a virgin at 28 and now she needs a new job. She answers an ad at New Haven Custom Boats hoping for a chance to learn new skills and make a new life with less drama.
The trouble is that her new boss, Zane Jackson, is utterly irresistible. For him, Kenley seems oddly familiar, so much like the girls who broke his heart in high school, but he can't stay away from her. She's perfect for the job, but there's so much else she's ideal for in his life.
