happened just the one time. But my rules work every time. I

an impossibly sexy, frustratingly unpredictable billionaire, and broke them
all. Everywhere. In an elevator. On a balcony. Beneath a
gazebo, of all places.
Whether I like it or not (spoiler alert: I like it!), Jack is taking me on wild
adventure and we’re writing a whole new set of rules. Like, always reserve your
matching Harry Potter costumes a week in advance; wrestling swans is not as
easy as it looks; and sometimes, the man of your dreams pops up in the most
unlikely of places and has a really big…boat.

predictable life? All this time I’ve been following my own rules and going to

I love Dahlia’s name and her family. Her super Southern Belle mom and her Italian dad are just a perfect complete opposite blending that works. Dahlia has rules and lists for everything. She has to keep things on task and do things in a certain, orderly way – for reasons I won’t tell you but you will find out if you read the book…
Jack is basically the spoiled rich boy. Except he’s spoiled himself. He’s a self made billionaire and enjoys the various perks of not having to worry about money. The world is his oyster and there is nothing he can’t do.
So when Jack meets Dahlia, all Dahlia’s rules are shot to hell. Suddenly, she’s flying by the seat of her pants and she hasn’t been able to do that for years!
I love the opposite nature of Jack and Dahlia and how they balance each other out. Jack’s devil may care tempers Dahlia’s straight edges and Dahlia’s rules help Jack do better.
