Reserved and responsible Reese Brady refuses to miss her chance with bad boy rock star Mark Ashton. After one steamy night, she's convinced the emotional connection they shared was just a figment of her imagination. After all, he’s a womanizer whose affairs are highly publicized.

Reese strives to leave that night behind her after a handsome business mogul asks her to dinner. Her relationship with Brian Fox quickly escalates into something meaningful, but Reese never expects the secret that emerges when he finally invites her to his penthouse.

She fell in love with a rock star the last time she was there. How could she know she’d fall in love with his brother next?

I think I might be beaming with pride that I managed to get that entire speech out of my mouth without sounding like a complete and total idiot.


“Great. I’m happy to give you a form my principal drafted up and you can get back to me with your exact donation, or I can—”

He interrupts me. “Ten thousand.”

“What?” I ask, positive I misheard him.

“Ten thousand dollars.” He flashes that same cocky smile at me again. “With conditions, of course.”

“What?” I repeat stupidly, my jaw hanging open.

“We’ve been looking for a charitable cause in Vegas, and I know there are lots of opportunities, but you’re the first person who didn’t just send a form email asking for money.”

“Ten…ten thou…My God. Ten thousand?” I’m stuttering like a fool, but I think I may be in shock. I cough and clear my throat. “Are…are you sure?”

He nods. “Yes.”

“What are the conditions?”

“Dinner. Tomorrow night.”

“I’d be happy to send something to your home.” Shit, for a donation that size, I suppose I can spare a few dollars to send a pizza or something.

He chuckles. “That’s cute. I meant dinner with you.”

My mouth forms a surprised O. I inhale in a sharp breath. “I don’t think that’s a good idea, Mr. Fox.”

He raises an eyebrow. “Why not?” He seems like one of those guys who is used to getting his way.

“Wouldn’t it be a conflict of interest?”

He shrugs. “I’m not giving you the money. I’m giving it to your school.”

“Still, I don’t think so. But I appreciate the offer.”

He busies himself by picking up a folder from his desk. “Sorry we couldn’t reach an agreement,” he says, swinging the folder open and focusing on the papers inside instead of me. “Kelsey should be at her desk just outside my door. She can show you out.”

“So that’s it? I won’t go to dinner with you so you’re just going to pull your offer?”

He looks up at me and maintains his composure. “I told you it had conditions.”
