An Insta-love Alpha Man and Curvy Younger Woman Romance


My brothers and I flip houses together.
Sometimes I take on side projects.
When our highest paying client asks me a personal favor, I agree to do it.
It comes with just one rule:
Keep my hands off his daughter.
Well … that’s going to be a problem.


I tried to repaint the guest house I currently call home.
And I made a mess of it.
My dad hires a professional to fix it.
I didn’t expect the painter to be smokin’ hot.
I want him.
I think he wants me too.
My dad would kill me if he knew what I was up to.
Maybe he doesn’t have to know.

Sweet & steamy short story insta-love romance with an older alpha blue collar man and younger curvy woman with an HEA. NO cliffhangers. NO cheating.
