Without love, marriage is just business. At least that’s what Claudia Mason tells the women who seek her firm’s unique services. With wealthy husbands who see their wedding rings as meaningless pieces of jewelry, they trust Claudia to do whatever is necessary to gather the hard evidence needed to shatter an ironclad prenup.
She is the best in the business and has yet to meet a mark she couldn’t get the goods on— solidifying her belief that no man can be trusted. After landing a client who is her ticket to retirement, she is on top of the world. Until a chance encounter with Greyston Michaels turns her carefully controlled world upside down.
Greyston shows Claudia a part of herself she thinks she’s lost, making her question everything she believes about men—and love. But in Claudia’s world, following her heart is bad for business. And business is everything.

Claudia Mason and her friends have unique business, Homewreckers Inc. Getting the goods on wealthy husbands to shatter prenups by any means possible, even if they end up seducing them and videotaping the evidence. Soon, they land the white whale that may secure their retirement. If they can video Gregory Michaels, it will secure their futures. But they didn’t count on Greyston, Gregory’s twin. Claudia never believed in love, but Greyston has her wondering if maybe she’s wrong.
“‘So what do you think about my proposal?’ he said after the waiter took our orders for another drink and appetizers. My heart fluttered at his choice of words. Jesus, I needed to get a grip.
‘Excuse me?’ I replied before taking a gulp of vodka and soda.
‘To be my assistant.’ One side of his mouth turned up in a devilish grin. ‘I can guarantee working under me would be much more fulfilling than working for my brother.’
God, he was cocky.
The idea for this story was pretty intriguing…entrapping cheating husbands to get out of prenups. Claudia was in a tough position. How do you flirt with Gregory to seduce him and do your “job” when you have the hots for his twin Greyston? There is definitely some hot chemistry between Claudia and Grey. I loved how loyal and dependable he came across. If I were Grey, I don’t think I could have let the flirting that Claudia was doing with her brother pass as long as he did without comment. There were several cringe worthy moments but overall, I really liked the romance and Claudia learning to believe in true love.
I enjoyed my first book by S. Simone Chavou. This was a cute, hot romance with a swoonworthy hero. There’s some angst but that just provides some tension that the lovers can work through.
“So, Mr. Michaels—”
“Grey,” he interrupted.
“So, Grey, what exactly is the purpose of the business meeting? Are you going to give me pointers on how best to serve your brother?” His jaw clenched and a fire lit in his eyes. “As his new assistant,” I added, turning my body toward him. His face relaxed as I took a sip of my drink.
“To the contrary, like I told you, I need a new assistant. I believe your talents will be better utilized serving me.”
He placed his hand over mine around the glass and pulled it toward him. His unexpected touch sent goose bumps over my skin. Keeping his eyes trained on me, he took a drink from my glass. His tongue flicked out over his bottom lip to catch a stray drop of the clear liquid.
“My need for you is far more urgent than my brother’s,” he continued, his eyes burning into me as he took the lime from the rim of my glass and sucked it between his lips. “I’ll have one of these, as well,” he told the bartender without looking at him.
I pulled my lip between my teeth and bit down to temper the urge to kiss him right there in the middle of the crowded restaurant.
Between the drinks and the stress of the day, I was far past worrying about my responsibility to Elsa Michaels. The only thing I was worried about was getting some release and from what I could tell, Greyston Michaels could give me that and more.
“You are the most stunning woman I have ever seen,” he whispered, inching closer.
“Those eyes, I’ve never seen anything like them.”
“Oh yeah.” I smirked. “What color are they?” I closed my eyes before finishing the question. No one ever really noticed their true colors, so I expected an educated guess at best.
“Well”—he leaned over and whispered in my left ear—“the left is sea green with hints of blue, like the ocean when you’re far out looking down into the depths. The right”—he moved around, letting his lips brush ever so slightly over my forehead, to whisper in my right ear—“is blue like the sky on a perfect summer day.”
I opened my eyes, surprised at his accurate response. My heterochromia typically eluded most people, even those close to me would say my eyes were either green or blue, never one of each, a trait inherited from my mother.
Whatever was left of my instinct to fight the attraction between us dissipated as I leaned forward until our lips were mere centimeters apart. “You’re going to regret me,” I whispered against his mouth.
“The only thing I would regret is not kissing you right now,” he breathed, closing the gap between us.
