USA Today Bestselling Author, Lexy Timms, brings you a billionaire with a past he pretends didn't exist and a private life he doesn't want to share with anyone—except with one girl from his past that doesn't remember him.

The SECRET of happiness is FREEDOM. The secret of freedom is COURAGE.

The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past as better than what is was and the present worse than it actually is.

Billionaire CEO, SIMON DIESEL, owns one of the largest companies in the U.S. Little is known about him—he keeps his personal life out of the media despite their efforts to try to find out who the single, handsome billionaire is. He graduated out of Stanford with top honors, and while there invested in an online company that turned into a fortune. No one knows he was just a regular kid growing up and got into Stanford on a scholarship. He's determined to prove to himself that he can do it.

He never expected that the girl he lost his virginity to would show up in his office, looking for a job. He also never anticipated that she wouldn't remember him. Now he has to hire her, just to prove he's the same kid from high school—just a whole lot richer.


  • Ugh

    By jj goatgirl
    Lead female is a liar and incredibly immature and downright mean and rude. Nothing about this makes me want to purchase the rest of the story. The guy is so nice and does everything to help her and she won’t even communicate and slams doors in his face.

    It is a good book, but the end had me confused
  • The effect of fate

    By yhf l
    I think the main characters in the book don’t notice it but the narrative parts of the story relay it a lot and it’s easy to see in the past. It made me think of my current and future fate.
  • Wow idk

    By regansway
    So the story line was ok the drawn out inner monologue waisted a lot of space on the page to make it 800+ pages or so.... the over dramatic female character was too over done. A not so great cliffhanger but for a free book can’t complain too much...
  • Two Stars off for a horrible ending

    By Avid Reader QC
    This book is well written and engaging ... BUT.... what would have been a 4-Star book was ruined by the last page in which the female lead makes an abrupt, unsatisfying, and out of character decision that robs the reader of the expected HEA (Happy Ever After) or HFN (Happy For Now) ending. When a romance author uses tried and true tropes to tell us a familiar story of romance, they owe us the happy ending. This author/editor team threw in a cheap, unsatisfying cliff-hanger to sell the next book in the series. That's how you turn a 4-Star book into a 2-Star book.

    The author needs a better editor

    By Chaucerette
    This was a chapter. A book(story) has a beginning , middle an end, There was a story concept which was sort of gripping but it disintegrated into a definite non-end.
  • Terrible Ending

    I need to stop reading your books. I love how you write your stories, but so tired of the harsh way you end each book. It doesn’t make me want to read the next one because it will end the same way. We read to get fulfillment, not get mad or upset over endings.
  • Bad ending

    By Sexy 5876
    Heather is a cry baby & liar. She wouldn’t know a good man even if you pay her. The ending was a huge disappointment.
