About the Book
He’s not who he says he is…but neither is she…
Neal Alexander has a reputation as a heartbreaker and a troublemaker who uses his trust fund, good looks, and come-closer glances to get what he wants. Except that’s not who he is—not anymore. He’s found success and purpose in the business world but prefers to let everyone, including his family, believe he’s still the reckless, self-absorbed playboy he used to be. Why share the truth and open himself up to judgment, criticism, and “never good enough”? Life is easier and less complicated this way, but living a lie has its own brand of torment.
That torment comes straight at him when Rachel Reese, a regretful high school memory he wishes he could forget, lands in the same city.
Rachel just wants to make her own choices and follow her passion for interior design. She’s not giving up on her career dream, even if she’s made a few missteps along the way. Wrong friends, lousy boyfriends, dead-end jobs. But this time, in this city, it’s going to be different, and if she has to fabricate a bit for a career opportunity, well, is that so horrible? Nothing is going to derail her, especially not a smooth-talking disaster from her past like Neal Alexander.
It’s going to be difficult to keep the lies straight, the truth hidden, and the emotions from flaring, especially when the attraction between Neal and Rachel is so unwelcome. Can they trust each other enough to open up and share their true selves for a chance at real happiness?
