Money can’t buy happiness…but it can sure rent a lot of it. And with her rich daddy paying the rent, twenty-eight-year-old CJ Riley lives in a world of fast cars, willing women and zero responsibility.

Intense and by-the -book, the tall, tanned cop is not impressed by CJ’s wealth or her advances. Never one to resist a challenge, CJ sets out to add Lois to her conquests unaware that a shocking chain of events is about to unfold. Events that will forever change her life and her heart.
