Fiona was the first woman to ever reject me.
She thinks billionaire jackasses with playboy reputations aren’t husband material.
Well, she’s right, but Wilder Winters never takes “no” for an answer.
I have to prove to her that I’m responsible before she’ll give me a shot. So when Naomi, my friend’s teenage daughter, comes crying to me that she’s in big trouble and needs my help, it all clicks for me: I don’t need to be responsible, I just need to lie.
What’s more responsible and irresistible than a single dad? Sure, Naomi isn’t really my daughter, but she’s willing to play along.
The thing with a lie is, the longer you keep it up, the deeper in trouble you get. But all the trouble in the world is worth it, so long as I get to taste the sweet fullness of Fiona’s lips and figure out exactly what makes her tick.
With Naomi’s help, I have Fiona eating out of my hand, but I realize a bit too late that I don’t just want to add her to my long list of conquests. For the first time in my life, I want to commit. Marry her. Make her mine.
With only a 14-year-old girl as my wingman, I’ll have to convince Fiona that I’ve changed and am sincere…right after I tell her that I’m a fake single dad.
