A millionaire with a wary heart…

And a first love worth repeating

Success couldn’t make former model Alexis Armstrong forget the one who got away. When she “rents” Derek Moore at a fund-raiser to show him what he’s missed, things don’t go as planned.

Their sizzling chemistry reignites…with lasting repercussions. Derek wants to be there for his baby, but Alexis will only marry for love. Can he convince the stubborn beauty he’s for real?


If you come from a disconnected background it can leave you feeling unsure of who you are and you will get where Derek is coming from in a way.  Most of all how you truly feel about a relationship you have whether it be with friends, lovers, or the one.

It can make you determined to do great things in your life to out do what you came from the ‘I’ll show you,’ attitude.  It can make you freeze in place at whatever age the trauma touched your life also.  Giving you the impression that you will end up just like your parents.

For Derek it seemed to always be a part of his life since he father denied him at birth.  Not sure really how all the three brothers were connected but they were.  There is Trey, the oldest, Derek, and Max the youngest.  From what I gather they all come from different baby mommas.  Their father is a millionaire leaving them set for life.  He has already given them each a sizeable trust fund which to this day Derek has not touched.

Dereck, however, he has considered it hush money to keep out of his life until now his father is dying and he wants to be surrounded by the same boys he never wanted to claim, Trey and Derek.  Can you say ‘resentment?’  Derek and his mom are extremely close and with her being a supermodel of her time they lived very comfortably.

Derek dated his high school sweetheart until senior graduation when he broke up with Alexis. Saying he had to prove to his father he could amass his own fortune in spite of him.  That he could be a better businessman and a better man.  So, he dumped her.  She was in tears for a long while over that.

Alexis didn’t do too shabby herself.  She went on to become one of the top supermodels internationally.  She has filled up her passport several times.  When she runs into Derek at the Millionaire Moguls organizations rent-a-bachelor function.  She loves the fun idea.  Derek’s brother, Trey had come up with it.

Finding out Derek was on the auction block Alexis made sure to do up the bid nicely to ensure she got what she wanted.  That was, Derek.

I would have given it another star but I felt we came in without enough back story on some of the characters and plot.  Not mention there are some unanswered things that weren’t resolved.  Like who set up his dad?  Will his dad make until Christmas?  Etc.… I give this: 4 stars.
