He's even willing to pay:
Six months of fake engagement in exchange for the cash to fund my company.

Too bad Liam is the most frustrating man on the planet. Demanding. Bossy. Extremely charming.
Plus the deep blue eyes. The devil-may-care-smile. The tattoos he hides under his suit.

I fall in love with him too.

Alright, the feisty college student is driving me out of my mind.
I can still keep my hands off her.
I double down on my rules. Draw that line between friends and lovers.
Then she presses her red lips to mine.
And, suddenly, it's obvious.
There's no way in hell I can resist her.
