"I have a proposition for you." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. It's been years since Kacey's seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they're engaged for her sake-so be it.
But Kacey wasn't counting on Jake's older brother Travis still being there. She calls him "Satan" for a reason: she's never forgotten the way he teased and taunted her. Yet when they meet again, Travis's gorgeous smile is a direct hit to her heart . . . and Kacey's more confused than ever. As the days pass, only one thing starts to become alarmingly clear-she never should have accepted Jake's deal..
If Jake was devastating, then Travis was mind-numbing. From here on out, both men shouldn't be allowed to smile, ever. It wasn't fair to the female population.
When Kacey lays eyes on Travis after all these years, she's floored. He shouldn't be allowed to look so good, and why is she feeling these things about HIM. But there's still Jake, who has held Kacey's heart for years. He's Seattle's most eligible bachelor, who's more concerned about his appearance and getting to the top, and he'll do so by any means possible.
"Well, well, well. Look what we have here," Travis' smooth voice seemed to rumble in her chest.
Dear god, please have mercy and let him be bald and fat.
Slowly, she turned and faced her nemesis.
Would it have been too much to ask for him to have not grown into his perfect nose?
"Kacey." he nodded.
"Your hair's different."
Kacey flinched. "You've grown into your nose."
" I'll get hurt either way Travis. Just depends on which brother I decide to give that opportunity to, don't you think?"
How was it that one look from the girl could put him back into high school when she chose his brother over him? Not that she knew of his ridiculous crush. And his stutter hadn't helped matters. If anything it made it worse. She took his silence as hatred, when instead he was afraid to open his mouth.
