Beautifully Flawed (Shine Design Series #2) by Laura Pavlov
Elle Fiore wants a prince on a white horse.
Maverick Wallace does not fit the description.
It doesn’t matter they shared the best kiss of her life, or her friends think he walks on water…and his Greek-god looks have absolutely no effect on her whatsoever.
If only she can convince her heart he’s not for her.
Maverick is happy with his free and easy no-strings lifestyle.
The last thing he wants or needs is someone complicated like Elle.
He doesn’t do relationships or sleepovers.
She’s beautiful, but a diva with a capital D.
But something magical happens whenever they’re in a room together, whether they want it to or not.
Excerpt Beautifully Flawed by Laura Pavlov
“Get your mangy mutt off me.” She covered her mouth with her hand to keep Daisy’s urgent kisses away.
Hell, he couldn’t help but laugh, of course the spicy Southern prima donna disliked dogs. And who the hell wore white dress slacks, a white blousy tank top, and high heels to Lake Tahoe? It was like wearing a wedding dress to a campground. He doubted the little princess was one with nature.
“Daisy.” He used a stern voice, which got her attention. Not the bitchy one on her back, but the non-human bitchy one who couldn’t stop wagging her tail. His pup moved obediently to his side, and Maverick reached for Elle’s hand to help her up.
“Why are you smiling?” she hissed. He pulled her to her feet, and she tore her hand away as if the mere contact burned her.
She dramatically brushed dirt from her pants.
“You all right, Peaches?”
“I’m fine, and you best call me by my name, seeing as I’m here for professional reasons.” She stood straight, face flushed. “And why haven’t you trained your beast of a dog? He probably ruined my outfit.”
“She’s a girl and just a pup. Still gets a little excited when people come over, but I will tell you, not the wisest move to wear all white in Tahoe.
It’s kind of an outdoorsy place, you know? I hope you brought other clothes, for your sake.” He scanned her from head to toe. So fun to look at. A gorgeous pain in the ass.
