When it comes to love, quintessential nice guy Michael Stevens always finishes last. Packing up his struggling computer business to start over somewhere besides small town Rock Canyon is the best plan he’s got—until a beautiful stranger in need of a tech miracle stops him in his tracks. A nice guy won’t get this girl, but to transform into a brooding bad boy, he’s going to need an expert’s help.
And there’s no one badder in town than Ellie Willis.
Ellie has spent two years trying to clean up a reputation that won’t ever recover from her damaging past. Branded by her mistakes, she’s desperate for an extreme makeover. When Mike asks her for lessons in running wild, she has a deal of her own in mind. She’ll help him dirty up his rep if he’ll help clean up hers.
But as the two embark on quid pro quo relationship, Ellie can’t deny the attraction neither of them saw coming. Never has it felt more wrong to do the right thing. Can she show Mike that it’s better to find someone who accepts who you really are? Or will she always just be good at being bad?
