When millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building
out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, and super successful but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she didn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat a little too fast. She’s prepared to wait him out, but it'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game.

With millions of dollars on the line, Will is positive he can make Kate sell. He’s played the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined—impossibly cute and a match for him in every way.

The game is on but can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?
 Kate is a computer whiz with her own store.  But that store is at risk from the millionaire Will Thornton.  He wants to knock the store down because it sits in the middle of his new development.  Kate is determined to play the waiting game and hope he just goes away.  Will has other plans.  He thinks Kate is cute (in her own nerdy sort of way) and plans on flirting his way into getting her to sell.

What follows is one of the more humorous and exciting romances I've read without actually becoming a comedy or suspense.  Kate was hilarious.  She's was perfectly awkward and totally unfraid to own her inner an outer nerd (there is a convention involved).  Will seems to be the perfect handsome rich boy, but deep down there's more to him.  As Will and Kate get to know each other both of their plans begin to crumble.

But there's a third party involved that's willing to do a little more across the line type of stuff to try and get her to sell her store and it may just tear Will and Kate apart as well.  I loved this book.  I loved the side characters.  I loved the setting.  I loved the story.  I don't think I would have changed anything and I've always had a soft spot for the nerd finding their perfect match.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
