When a Chicago matchmaker transforms an awkward nerd into a sexy stud, she’s sorely tempted to keep him for herself!

Tabitha Bell is the face of Chicago’s premiere matchmaking service. At least, she hopes it will be, someday, once business takes off. Struggling to stay afloat, she can’t afford to turn down any client. Not even an impossible-to-train nerd who substitutes sex with triathalons.

His inability to talk to women almost cost Drew Watson his job. He’d be perfectly happy sequestered in his office, designing blockbuster video games. But his boss considers talking to funders a non-negotiable requirement. Who better than a matchmaker to teach him about the opposite sex?

Once Tabitha looks beneath his cliched hoodie and uncombed hair, she discovers more than six feet of sexy physique. When the urge to kiss him becomes irresistible, Tabitha tells herself it’s a logical step in learning his attributes. One taste isn’t enough to satisfy either of them. Tabitha yearns for a relationship that’s more than skin deep. And yet she’s got to unleash the new and improved Drew on the single women of Chicago to collect her fee. Or might Drew talk her into turning their fling into a matchless romance?

Excerpt:

He padded across the beige carpet in bare feet. Amazing how intimately naked a man could look in a polo shirt, jeans, and bare feet. Drew knelt by the side of the divan. Took her hand in his and dropped a soft kiss dead center between her wrist and oval opal ring on her middle finger.

“I’d rather tell you that you’re beautiful. Every time I look at you, it’s like a sucker punch straight to my dick. But I’ll also admit that your mind’s as stacked as your body. So yeah, you’re brilliant.”

Tabitha gaped. She knew it because she felt the air cut across her tongue as she dragged in a surprised breath. Sure, they’d kissed. And she’d gotten no sleep for two nights replaying the kiss. Trying to figure out what it meant and what to do next. But she hadn’t expected Drew to so boldly move things forward. Not the man who believed so strongly—and so wrongly—that he was invisible to women. Unless….he didn’t mean it. Unless the straight-A student wanted to be sure he took home a gold star for the night. She tossed her hair back and sat up a little straighter.

“That’s quite a compliment. But much like earlier, wholly unnecessary. I saw how well you loosened up. How well you interacted with Ashley and Tara and Kate. You don’t have to prove anything to me.”

“Don’t I?” He rubbed a finger lightly across her palm. That barest of touches sent erotic lightning bolts through her body. “I think I do. First, I had to prove that I could handle your friends. Now, I’d like to prove how well I can handle you.”

Part of Tabitha wanted to strip off her clothes right then and there. Offer herself up to him on a silver platter. But the other part of her still couldn’t quite believe the transformation. Didn’t trust the validity of this new, alpha version of Drew. Even though it was the man she’d seen inside him all along.

“I thought you were only this sure of yourself on a track or behind a computer,” she tried to joke. Instead, it came out squeaky and breathy. Because he was still doing that stroking thing on her hand and it made Tabitha want to simply writhe.

“That’s all you’ve seen. Doesn’t mean that’s all there is. I’m sure of myself, most comfortable doing things I’m good at. And let me assure you, Tabitha, I excel at sex.”

His oddly blunt delivery might turn off other women. But for Tabitha, his cocky honesty was one heck of a turn-on. Just like every single little thing she discovered about Drew. “Prove it,” she said recklessly.

Next thing she knew, Drew was draped half on top of her. One hand cradled her scalp. The other pulled at her back, lifting her off the round cushion and into his body. And his mouth—well, it took hers. No sweet, gentle exploration. His tongue ravaged hers, delving into every nook and cranny with long, sweeping licks that brought every inch of her body to a state of need and want within moments.
