Excerpt from THE GEEK BILLIONAIRE MAKEOVER

“Sure you don’t want to help me get undressed and dressed?”

She blushed at the thought of running her hands over his naked skin. Caroline cleared her throat and smiled, deflecting his question and trying to get them both refocused.

“While your clothing is being made, we’re going to get out of town for a bit.”

“Don’t want to ruin the great unveiling of the new and improved me, huh?”

“That’s generally the idea. Part of changing your image is molding the perceptions people have of you the first time they look at you. Right now they think—”

“Gamer geek with a lot of cash.”

It was better he acknowledged it than for her to say it.

“What we want them to see is playboy billionaire sex god.”

“Sex god, huh?” One eyebrow rose up.

He took a step closer to her, bringing them into contact that was almost chest to chest. “I could go for that, if you’d be willing to assist me,” he said, the husky quality of his voice filtering past her shields and making her want to lean into the solid wall of muscle in front of her. Only her sense of survival held her back. Getting involved with Josh could bring her whole world and that of her brother crashing down. It wasn’t worth the risk.

“But before that we need to help you work on your fear of crowds.”

“How?”

“We’re going to help you have some fun and relax a bit.”

He slipped a hand around her waist, the hot weight of it making her intimately aware of him. “And what’s the doctor’s orders?”

Caroline pulled away reluctantly, stepping back from the temptation he offered. “Unplug from technology for a start.”

“No computer? No phone? Just the two of us and no Internet connection? I can’t leave like that. There are too many things—”

“That Mr. Carvales has already arranged to take care of since I told him I believed this was an essential step in your image remodeling.”

“So we’re leaving. To do what, may I ask?”

The corner of his mouth tipped up in a sexy smile that made her heart stop for a moment, then restart twice as fast as before. She swallowed hard. “We’re going riding on the dunes.”

His face lit up with genuine enthusiasm. “On what?”

“ATVs. Sorry, they were fresh out of landspeeders like Luke Skywalker’s.”

“Do not mock the hero.”

“Didn’t you think he was a bit whiny?”

“Well, yeah, at first, but he was just a kid. Look at what a badass he turned into.”

Caroline put her hands on her hips. “He was not a badass.”

“What are you talking about? He could bend shit and control people with his mind!”

Caroline cracked a grin. She couldn’t help herself. When Josh was passionate about something, he was all in. For a moment she considered what it might be like to have that kind of devotion focused on her. “You do know that’s all fiction, right?”

“One man’s fiction is another man’s reality.”

“Whatever. Serves me right for getting into any kind of a Stars Wars argument with an ardent fan. The sooner you change, the sooner we can get going.”
