She’s savvy, hard-working, and eager to move up the corporate ladder. So when her boss tells her that in order to make partner she has to land a prestigious account, Mimi meets the challenge head on. Never mind that the prospective client is Daniel Vargas, the polished and pompous player who rejected her months ago.

One week to test her rules and prove that he’s exactly the kind of man she needs . . . “This debut romance sparkles.” -- Library Journal (starred review) on Unbuttoning the CEO “A fun, contemporary romance that reminds us that any attempt to predict or manage love is destined only to enhance its chaos.” -- The Washington Post on One Night with the CEO Grab your copy today!

Their server drew back the curtain. “Good evening,” he said as he handed them their menus, each a single page printed on heavy butterscotch cardstock. “My name’s Jasper. May I start you off with a cocktail?”
Daniel picked up the cocktail menu and handed it to her. “For you, I recommend the Fetish.”
Mimi read the description and nodded. “You had me at chocolate-infused vodka and strawberry foam. Sounds perfect.”
“And you, sir?” Jasper asked.
Daniel took a sip of water. “I’ll have the Libido.”
Mimi snickered. “Are you sure that’s wise? Any more of that could be dangerous.”
“Any more of that sauciness and you’ll need a bib.”
Jasper cleared his throat. “Do you need a few minutes with the menu?”
“Yes,” Daniel said.
With Jasper gone, Mimi circled back to Daniel’s seductions plans. “So you were about to explain why you chose this place.”
“Right. So I’ve been thinking about your rules, and it occurs to me that I can help you.”
Mimi blinked. “You want to help me with my rules.” She narrowed her eyes. “How?”
“There’s a school of thought on rule-based learning that argues rules aren’t really rules unless your adherence to them is tested.”
Mimi pressed her lips together to stop herself from smiling. “Is that so? Tell me more.”
“The idea is that you can make up rules to live by, but they’re meaningless unless you’re actually challenged to follow them. Let’s take an example. Say you make up a rule that you’ll never drive your car over fifty-five miles per hour. Fine. But if your car isn’t capable of going over fifty-five miles, your rule has no true meaning.”
“Okay. So how does that help me?”
“Well, unless you’re tested to break your dating rules, they’re pointless. But don’t despair. I volunteer to help you test them.”
She set aside her menu. “What does testing the rules entail exactly?”
“I try to seduce you. You try to follow your rules. I’m the perfect candidate, too.”
“Oh, yeah? Why’s that?”
“With me, you can test all three rules: Never date someone you’ve met through your friends, never date a man who reminds you of your father, and never mix business with pleasure. You have to admit, it’s like someone handpicked me for the task.”
“You,” she said laughing. “You handpicked yourself for the task. And you totally made all that shit up about rule-based learning.”
“Sounded good, though, right?”
“It was entertaining. I’ll give you that.”
