No Matter What (Paperback)
|Author: Erin Nicholas|
Jaden Monroe is the best at everything she does. Except getting along with people who try to boss her around. Adam Steele bosses everyone around. And they listen. Until he meets Jaden. Now the woman he needs to get his--and more importantly, his daughter''s--life back to normal is the first person to defy him. But a million dollars has a way of softening her up. Especially since that''s exactly the amount needed to finish the pediatric rehabilitation wing at the children''s hospital. In Jaden''s mind it''s her fault the fundraising came up short. After she broke up with the man who had agreed to donate the additional money, he withdrew his support. So, Adam''s offer seems like a dream come true. In spite of his demanding ways. Once Jaden meets Adam''s daughter she is determined to get the girl up and walking again. And not fall into bed--or love--with the teenager''s father. No matter what.
From the Publisher:
The best doesn’t come cheap…and this time it could cost him his heart.
Adam Steele is good. Good at using his money to get his way. Money always works—until he realizes he can’t buy his daughter’s way out of her new wheelchair. Three private physical therapists later, he’s almost given up on Emily walking again. Then he meets Dr. Jaden Monroe. And his match.
Jaden doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit”. But she knows a lot about “fired” after a public blowout with her ex jeopardizes the donation her hospital was counting on. Now the most tempting man she’s ever met has made her just the offer she needs to save the new children’s rehab wing—one million dollars to rehabilitate his daughter. In return she finds herself making Adam rash promises: that his daughter will walk in time to take the lead in the school play. And that he won’t entice her into his bed. No matter what.
But Jaden didn’t anticipate a teen whose injuries are more than physical. Or a man so passionate and devoted—and as tenacious as she is. As Adam wears down her defenses with kiss after kiss, the only thing harder than keeping her promise will be keeping a hold on her heart.
Warning: Contains heated arguments that erupt only slightly more often than hot kissing, a new perspective on kitchen appliances, and sizzling sex occurring everywhere BUT the bedroom (though they eventually make it there).
