Kendra knows what it’s like to watch someone work three jobs and still struggle to pay the rent. She has spent her entire young adult life determined to do better. In a few months, the lifetime of sacrifices will finally be worth it. She will be graduating at the top of her prestigious masters program at Columbia, and finally leave her job at the diner to venture into the world of business. The only thing that could make this moment sweeter would be if her mama was still here to watch her cross that stage and clutch that diploma she’s given up everything for.
When Matthew Blackwell, the infamous billionaire bad-boy bachelor, shows up out of the blue in her diner asking for a date, Kendra’s world is lurched sideways. With girls lined up around the block to be his “next mistake”, Matthew could have almost any woman in New York City, or possibly the world. However, Kendra isn’t interested in being his flavor of the week, until he hits her in her soft spot… her ambition. Despite her best attempts to keep her distance, Matthew’s stunning good-looks and mischievous flare keep pulling her toward him.
