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.

    The book itself is ok. A few grammar and punctuation errors but other than that, the book was OK. Although the guy in the cover is absolutely hot🤤
  • Okay...

    Plot is great. The style of writing is horrible or maybe just not my thing. Too many ups and real climax. At the end of the book there is a cliffhanger but I’ve read it so many times before in this book that I don’t care to read the rest of the series. I would not recommend reading this book. You will get annoyed easily.

    What a stupid way to end a book, I will not continue reading this series with such a bad ending to book one.
  • Good until the ending

    The ending of this book was by far the WORST ending I’ve ever read. The book was lovely until the ending. I will not read another book in this series for fear of having to read a perfectly good book ruined by the last page. Would have given it 5 stars if the ending were better
  • Horrible!!

    Thank goodness I didn’t pay for this book! Ugh!! The female main character, Heather, appears to have multiple personalities!! Oh Simon, stay away Simon!! Back and forth! Worse ending ever! Do not bother unless it’s a free download and then, you’ll be shaking your head when you finish it!!

    The book needed more content it was hard to stay focused on what I was reading.
  • Ends in a cliffhanger

    By ClaudiaS1234
    The book was not bad, but it wasn’t amazing either. It was a good read, kept me entertained, finished it in about 3 hrs. Some of the reviews here say that it ws slow to start. I thought it was fine actually. I didn’t like that Heather, the main character, was giving the male lead, Simon, mixed signals. She was hot and then cold. Saying things were a mistake about 3 seperate times, and then she would be the one to give him hope again. The ending was the same thing. They have this experience that bonded them, and it ends by her being cold again. Sounds like steryotipcal “girl” drama. Overall it was good, but it does end in a cliffhaner.
  • Not worth it

    By smcreader
    Glad this book was free... the ending was a let down.
  • fantastic start to a new series

    Lexy has done it again! Another great series. Simon hires his high school sweetheart who says she doesn’t know who he is. He’s determined to prove her wrong. Their spark is undeniable!
