I’ll date, I won’t marry. I’ll stand, I won’t fall for any woman. I’m free. I’m Rhode Island Billionaire Brother #2.’

He’s about to fall…faster, longer & yield quicker.
Hard-hearted, too-hot-to-handle, arrogant billionaire brother #2, Tucker Ross starts to fall apart at the seam when he sees Eva holding a pregnancy test kit packet at a pharmacy store. She is clear about what she wants–to remain friends. But her mysteriously cool demeanour doesn’t fool Tucker.

As their friendship heats up as fast as their bodies, and as Tucker considers skipping mountains and gliding across oceans, will Eva look beyond his rough exterior?

She conceals her truth…

Back home after a stint abroad, the last thing big, curvy, small-town woman Eva DuVernay needs is to get distracted by the smoky-hot, sexy acquaintance from her past. Although insisting she wants a commitment-free life, beneath her I-m-not-interested-in-you glances and warm smiles, their attraction simmers and sizzles.

Friend-zoned, Tucker hops between his castle and her apartment.
Between stolen glances.
Sipping coffee & alcohol.
Cuddling on super-comfy couch.
Indulging in heated kisses.
He falls harder…deeper…lighting a savage flame.

Until the truth slams hard.

Will Tucker stick around to win Eva’s heart? Not for a hookup but forever?
