When millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, and super successful but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she didn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat a little too fast. She’s prepared to wait him out, but it'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game.
With millions of dollars on the line, Will is positive he can make Kate sell. He’s played the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined—impossibly cute and a match for him in every way.
The game is on but can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?

My Review: 5 stars
I totally loved this book. I loved that from the start, Will was attracted to Kate and vice versa. I loved that Kate, despite being inexperienced, knew that what she felt for Will was a good thing. That is, once she stopped fighting him every step of the way. Will, for his part, initially viewed Kate as an obstruction to his goal. But once he laid eyes on her, every part of him wanted her - and not for business purposes. They have some great fun moments and then everything spirals out of control due to a misunderstanding. Will has to show Kate, in a big way, that she means more to him than business. But is it too late?
Author Bio: As a kid Emma wanted to be an astronaut, or maybe Captain Janeway. Because she didn't really think her career choices through very well she ended up in an everyday geek job, crunching numbers and sighing over syntax. It seemed a long way from the stars and in an effort to escape Emma decided to get serious about her other passion. Writing. Several years later and Emma has yet to walk on the moon or sit in the Captain's chair, but she is still writing. She scribbles stories in all sorts of genres, contemporary, paranormal, post-apocalyptic, historical, sci-fi...if she hasn't tried it yet she will before long. The only common theme is the romance. A hopeless romantic everything Emma writes has a love story in there somewhere.

Synopsis: Before the end of the night, they’ll break all the rules.
For just one night, Georgia Taylor wants to forget about her demanding job and the everyday struggles of being a single mom. Her track record with men is pitiful, but that’s fine because her responsibilities don’t leave room for love anyway. The new online dating site is perfect for what she’s after.
But Georgia’s plans fly out the window when Brent Turner, aka Sexy Dad and father of her daughter’s classmate, turns out to be her Internet date, therefore, eliminating any possibility for a night without consequences.
All of Brent Turner’s honorable intentions fly out the window when he sees highly strung “Super Mom” waiting for her date at the bar. Determined to win Georgia’s trust and show her a good time, their no-strings evening promises to become so much more…until, that is, she discovers he’s really trying to win her vote.
My Review: 4 stars
This was a good, short story that left me with a feel good vibe. Georgia is just looking for a night out for fun and a good looking guy. She didn't count on her date being the Sexy Dad all the ladies talk about, or her attraction to him. I liked how Brent initially tries to stop something from happening with his business partner and Georgia, because of who she is and business. He just didn't count on the instant attraction between him and Georgia. That puts a damper in the business plans, but his personal life is looking good. Until Georgia finds out accidentally that Brent wasn't supposed to be her date. I feel for Georgia, because she feels set up. That Brent was trying to take advantage of her, until a good friend point out differently. Can they work things out? Or will a misunderstanding come between them?

Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beat doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband, living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her deepest passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps talking about. When she is not lost in the world of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line.
