Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement left him brokenhearted. When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down.
She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met…including himself.
Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own clothing shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn.
Their attraction is sizzling, their connection undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over. What starts out as a fling, soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for.
When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other?
*This book is a standalone. Each book in The Bennett Family series will follow a different couple.*
Logan pulls back a notch. “Have you looked at retail spaces?” His tone is all businesslike now.
“Not yet. I’ve been busy finding a place to live. I’ll start hunting for a space next week.”
“I have a friend who’s an excellent realtor. I can hook you up with him.”
“That’d be great.” To have this practical stranger immediately offer his support is… Wow.
Logan’s stance changes from carefree to tense in a fraction of a second. “On second thought, I’ll go with you when you meet the first time.”
“It’s really not necessary.” I eye him curiously, trying to decipher the reason behind the change.
“You don’t take no for an answer, do you?”
Not taking his eyes off me, he says, “Never.”
My skin tingles, my pulse pounding furiously. I whistle loudly, hoping to hide the effect he has on me. “I guess the things I’ve heard about you are true after all.”
“Ah. That didn’t earn me points for the ego thing, did it?”
“No, but I’m willing to wait for more proof.”
“Very generous of you. This realtor friend of mine is a notorious womanizer. I’d feel much better knowing you’re not meeting him alone.”
“I can take care of myself.”
“I have no doubt. I’m still coming with you,” he says.
“Who’s to say I’ll be safe with you? I just met you.”
“Ah, but I have the Bennett name to back me up. Haven’t you heard? I’m the nice brother. I’m safe and trustworthy.”
To his credit, Logan says this with a straight face, even though mischief flickers in his eyes. Ah, I love a man with humor. Unfortunately, I disagree with him. He may be trustworthy, but he’s not safe. A man who can make me laugh with a few words and ignite me with his gaze all at the same time is anything but safe.
“So, I’ll be joining you when you meet my friend.” His tone is final, and I don’t insist. I know how to pick my battles, and I have a suspicion there are many to come where Logan is concerned. “Now, I suggest we join the group inside. I’m starving.”
I walk in front of Logan, sensing his eyes on me the whole way. My body simmers with awareness. I’m in big trouble, and I have a suspicion it’s about to get worse.
