After her widowed mother rushed into a regrettable second marriage, Thea Blackwell vowed never to commit to anything. Not jobs. Not hairstyles. Not men. Still, part of her wishes she had enough money—and enough courage—to put down roots by buying her dream home and having it renovated by the gorgeous former neighbor who never spared her a second glance.
Although Aiden Murdoch put his playboy ways behind him to help his ailing father run the family business, he can't seem to escape his scandalous past. Then his childhood friend Thea shows him the listing for a tumbledown fixer-upper, and he stumbles on the perfect solution: he'll provide the labor on her new house, and she'll make him look happily domesticated in front of his father’s nervous clients.
But soon enough, fake kisses lead to real feelings, and their simple arrangement gets complicated fast. While Thea doubts her pretend boyfriend can give up his wild ways, Aiden aches to prove he’s worth a lifelong commitment. Will they be brave enough to tear down the lies they’ve told each other?
