About AMERICAN ASSHOLEHe’s a self proclaimed bastard with a double helping of lying asshole.
Mia Matthews never thought much of big shot matchmaker Tenor Butler, but when she finds out he loaned her late business partner a quarter of a million dollars and no one told her, there aren’t enough four letter words to describe him. She’d like nothing more than to pretend Tenor doesn’t exist, but she owes him all that money, not to mention he’s hot as hell.
Tenor doesn’t see why it’s his fault Mia didn’t know about the loan. In fact, he thinks he’s being very magnanimous when he offers to forgive the loan if Mia closes her own matchmaking business and works for him for five years. But as he gets closer to Mia, he realizes two things: 1) he doesn’t want her as an employee and 2) she hates his guts.
When an old flame threatens them both, Mia and Tenor find themselves working together and are unable to ignore their mutual attraction. But it might be too late for these two romance experts to create their own love story.
This is a standalone romance. No cliffhanger.
She laughed and I held out my hand to her. “Shall we?” I asked.
With a nod, she took my arm and I led her to the front of the restaurant. As we followed the hostess to our table, I couldn’t stop myself from watching the woman at my side.
When she arrived a few minutes earlier, I’d been so worried something was wrong, I’d only focused on the fact that she wasn’t bleeding and nothing appeared broken. Now, however, I was able to take in all the details that made her, her.
She wore a smart-looking suit in a pale pink that fit and enhanced her figure instead of covering it up completely the way a lot suits did. Her hair was neatly styled and her makeup applied with a light touch. She was beautiful, even though every inch of her screamed that this was one hundred percent a business dinner and not a date, thank you very much, so don’t even bother to think otherwise.
Once we were seated, instead of reading the menu, she looked at me. “How were your meetings?”
“My what?” I asked while reading over the specials of the day.
“Your meetings,” she said. “The ones that lasted all day and were the reason why we had to meet tonight for dinner and not lunch.”
Oh, damn. Those meetings. The completely made up ones I’d obviously forgotten about. “Cancelled,” I said, with a smile. “Thank goodness. I hate day-long meetings.”
“Cancelled?” The corner of her mouth curled up, just a tad. Almost as if she didn’t know if she should believe me or not. Smart woman. “In that case, it must have been a very good day for you.”
“Regardless of the meetings,” I said. “The day is much better now.”
I’d love to say dinner was nice, but dinner was a fucking nightmare. Every damn thing Mia did was a turn on. Not that she did it on purpose.
Seriously, people eat with a napkin because sometimes they needed to wipe their mouths. I knew that. More to the fact, I knew Mia was not wiping her mouth in an attempt to turn me on.
That didn’t mean my dick understood.
By the time our desserts came, I was in serious trouble. All these years, I’d only given thought to having Mia work for my company and now that it appeared it would finally happen, I had it all wrong. I didn’t want her for the company, I wanted her for me. Not as an employee, but as a girlfriend.
Looking as though she was completely content, which I couldn’t believe to be the case, she glanced up from the employment contract and gave me a smile before she continued to read. Moments later, she signed it and I should have been happy. Instead, I faked a smile and signed my name under hers.
And with that stroke of the pen, I ensured that the one woman I wanted, I would never have.
