What happens when a single mom’s four-year-old daughter falls in love with Mr. Right and she doesn’t?
Maggie Tyson’s rule: no bad boys. Her incarcerated ex-husband broke her of that attraction. Needing to escape his threats and the scrutiny of the people in her hometown, Maggie relocates to New York City. Determined to not make the same mistakes, she has a mile-long list of dos and don’ts. Unfortunately, her daughter, Cecily, doesn’t like to follow them. When Cecily wanders away from her and right into Rick Stone’s office, Maggie knows he’s the exact type she’s been trying to avoid. Can she resist him or will she succumb to his willful charm?
Rick Stone’s rule: bed them don’t wed them. Running a multi-billion dollar business doesn’t leave him with much time to do anything else, particularly with an overbearing grandfather breathing down his neck. But when a man works hard, he needs to play even harder. Voted America’s most eligible bachelor, Rick doesn’t have any problems getting women into his bed—except one.
Two auburn beauties stumble into his life.
One will break his heart.
The other—heal it.
Will he love or leave them?

**MY REVIEW**

I was having a real hard time with this review. I liked the book on the whole- both the storyline and the characters, and to me, as someone who doesn't usually read this genre, pretty original, and yet somehow, it wasn't all that breathtaking nor was it good enough to rave about...

I'm not going into huge details of what this book is about, nor am I talking about what the blurb already told you, but I will say that I loved the original idea of it all, but the execution was done somewhat poorly. There was almost no chemistry, I didn't feel a single one of the things they said. Rick and Maggie felt forced, not too people that didn't want to fall in love but couldn't help it and instead they seemed like the opposite of that. 

But, all in all, even though I don't have much to say, I did like the overall concept, but I can't recommend it whole heartedly!
