A sexy CEO.
A single mom.
And a secret baby who is now eight years old…
A tipsy night in college resulted in Grace’s greatest joy–her daughter.
But now she sees the guy who gave her a fake name and number that night is stripping for a charity event without a care in the world.
When the feisty brunette confronts Brandon, finding out he has a daughter rocks his playboy world.
Grace wants answers.
Brandon wants Grace.
And Fallon wants a dad.
Is the ultimate party guy ready to strip it all bare…including his heart?
“So what do we do to make it less weird?” Grace walked like her daughter, hands in her pockets. Only with Grace, it was sensual. She moved with inherent femininity and a sort of sly shyness.
She was beautiful, but it was more than that. Grace was an amazing combination of strength and vulnerability, bold and shy.
Have sex again , was his first instant response to her question. But he knew that would only complicate the shit out of things. At the same time, though, it would make them more comfortable around each other.
It would be better than this hands-off politeness.
It was very tempting.
It took everything he had not to say something flirtatious. He damn near bit his own tongue off restraining himself. “You tell me. You’re the brains of this operation. I’m the beauty.”
“Just grab your rod,” she said, looking equal parts annoyed and bemused.
Brandon raised his eyebrows, waiting for her to realize what she had said.
“Oh, my God, stop it!” She laughed though and it was a big, beautiful, genuine laugh. “What, are you twelve?”
“Definitely not twelve. Or even twenty-one. I know what I’m doing now.”
Her cheeks turned pink. “I think you did okay at twenty-one. I didn’t have any complaints until morning.”
Brandon felt two things simultaneously-deep, male satisfaction and sincere regret.
What could have become of him and Grace if he hadn’t been a fucking idiot?
And what could they be now? Polite strangers? Friends? Or something more?
But before he could express that thought Grace jogged after Fallon, her hair bouncing down her back. She caught up with her daughter. Their daughter. She slipped her hand into Fallon’s and Brandon realized with the utter certainty of the Titanic that his life as a playboy was sinking.
Everything was different now. Everything.
