My Review:
The hero in this story is a self-made millionaire, Luke McCall, who has pulled himself up from a poor childhood to becoming a real estate tycoon. When he suspects someone is using nefarious schemes to stop him winning contracts he decides to try to woo the man’s daughter, Grace Wilson, to lie to her and romance her with the sole aim of discovering a way to put her father out of business. 
Grace is fed up of men trying to use her and is looking for someone who loves her as she is, not for her social position, money or the connection to her father. She decides on some tests to use to filter out such potential boyfriends. However, after meeting Luke she’s not so sure as he passes every test with flying colours – can she trust him?

I really didn’t like manipulative, lying Luke . . . his childhood is no excuse for his attitude or behaviour or how he plans to use Grace! Grace may be very rich but she is much too naive at times, especially concerning both her father and Luke. However, there are some very funny episodes where the two are so near to consummating their relationship but Luke keeps having some reason to abandon her, even when they’re both naked! He’s actually trying to resist his attraction to her as even he sees that as overstepping moral boundaries considering why he’s with her in the first place. That’s actually what gives him a glimmer of potential IMHO, but what will happen when she discovers his true intent? Will he succeed in putting her father out of business? If so, how will Grace react? As their mutual attraction grows, will Luke actually be able to continue towards his original goals or will love step in to thwart him? 
Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me, without obligations, an ARC of this novel via NetGalley.
