Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father’s protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she’s forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla’s seen his type before. But Daren isn’t who he seems to be . . .
Struggling to make amends for his family’s mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He’s beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner’s princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she’s just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla’s dad could have left them . . . was each other.
What would you say if I told you that you had to be handcuffed to a smoking hot guy for a few hours and go on a scavenger hunt? This hunt may or may not end with you receiving a shit ton of money OR you could end up with a quarter. Would you do it? Fuck yea, you would, wouldn’t you?
That is just the type of thing Kayla Turner’s father would do to her once he passed away after they haven’t spoken or seen each other in five years. And the cuffs were attached to none other than Daren Ackwood, the ‘Woman Whisperer.” Yes, ladies, rumor has it he is king of the bed castle!
“Regardless of the rumor, I know his type. They charm and seduce and leave a trail of broken hearts in their wake.”
So Kayla and Daren decide to take a chance with the hunt and see where it would lead them. Kayla knew his type though. He would say just about anything to get into a girl’s pants. He sure as shit wasn’t getting into her pants. She wasn’t going to fall for his antics while they were cuffed together. But shit, Kayla was just as hot around Daren as the next woman. And a kiss changed the way she looked at him for the rest of their time together. One minute they were talking and they next minute. OH MY GOD! It was the most mind blowing kiss EVER!
“Tell me to stop and I will.”
Fighting between my better judgement and the lust sprawling through my lower belly. ‘Don’t stop.’ Instantly, he crushes his lips against mine, more fully than before, and I eagerly kiss him back.” Screw my logic as well, because that may have been the hottest kiss ever recorded. I too was trapped in a Daren Ackwood trance.
Ok ladies, back on track. Oh, yes, that’s right… so after the first day concludes of their search and they haven’t gotten to the end of this wonderful hunt, they realize this is going to take a little longer than they realized. But the longer they spend with each other, the more they feel for one another.
“I feel a piece of my heart break off and deliver itself into Daren’s hands, permanently. He somehow got a hold on me and now it’s too late for me to wriggle free, even if I wanted to. Which I don’t.”
What happens when the hunt is over? Will they move on?
“Guys like me don’t get to have girls like Kayla Turner. Guys like me end up as alcoholics in jail. Guys like me only dream of girls like Kayla Turner.”
And how will the hunt end, will they both be millionaires or is a lesson in love more important than money? Guess you gotta go and find out…
