He promised to stay away…but some promises are made to be broken
Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the prince of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he'll finally see her as a desirable swan and not the ugly duckling in the second office from the left.
But when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, the man she wins is millionaire Niall Hunter—who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. She's determined not to let her guard down again—among other things—around the infamous Irish lothario.
Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend’s little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture...especially when he promised his friend he’d stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he's not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can't stop wanting her. Can't stop touching her. Can't stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to...
I'm getting a bit more into the swing of things considering romance books. I don't know everything yet - and I tend to stick to my contemporary - but I'm getting there. With that said, I did enjoy The Millionaire Makeover because it had the elements that I have come to accept as my "catnip". There is a hot bad boy (of course!), a nerdy curvy girl (though, I'd prefer more scenes showing us her nerdy goodness), and an "arrangement" (you know what I mean, right?). It was a major plus thinking of the hot bad boy also being Irish (accents! yay!). So, overall - yes, I enjoyed the book and it took me a night to devour it. I loved the dramatic tension between Niall and Khloe - it was hot. (In case you're wondering, there is A LOT OF SEX in this book. Like, a lot.)
Okay - now for the things I didn't like. Keep going if you don't mind spoilers!
