He promised to stay away…but some promises are made to be broken. 

Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the prince of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he'll finally see her as a desirable swan and not the ugly duckling in the second office from the left.

But when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, the man she wins is millionaire Niall Hunter—who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. She's determined not to let her guard down again—among other things—around the infamous Irish lothario.

Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend’s little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture...especially when he promised his friend he’d stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he's not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can't stop wanting her. Can't stop touching her. Can't stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to...

My Review:

The Millionaire Makeover is about two individuals whose grief brought them together for one night, and after not seeing each other for a while fate has brought them together again, this time for good.

Having read the previous book in the series, Beauty and the Bachelor, I have to say that Simone has done a great job at bringing a fresh and interesting book yet again. I loved reading the first book, but The Millionaire Makeover had me reading non-stop. In this particular book we get to meet Khloe Richardson, a computer programmer whose job and personality has always kept her from standing out. After the dead of her brother, Khloe has been trying to move on with her life, but the events that transpired afterward has kept her from being in a relationship. It was the very friendship that she had with her brother's best friend that made them crossed the line and they ended up sleeping together. Needless to say, the next morning she wakes up completely alone without knowing where Niall had gone. Fast-forwarding a couple years later, Khloe finds herself in the middle of a unique auction where her friend promised to find her a date. Yet fate had other plans, and she ended up bidding on non other than Niall Hunter. Shocked and without knowing what to do, Khloe decides to ignore Niall, but after knowing each other for so long he knows how to convince her to say yes to him, and they go on a “date,” and soon he decides to help her in the makeover department.

Soon they both start to realize that they might just be perfect for each other, but there are too many secrets that Niall has been hiding from Khloe, and they could potentially end up hurting what they already have. With both point-of-views, we are able to understand why the characters make the decisions that they made, and things slowly start to clear up towards the end of the book. There is something about Niall that had me reading non-stop, he is sweet and kind. He knows that Khloe's brother would have wanted a better man for his sister, but Niall's attraction towards Khloe starts to grow and it makes things between them that much more difficult to hide. On the other hand, Khloe has a very insecure personality, she doesn't know what to do to get the attention of the guy that she likes, and she is willing to change to make him see her. As the two start to spend more time together, they slowly start to heal and it all comes to an end when they have to decide of whether or not they are willing to be with each other or not. Overall, the writing was great and it wasn't fast paced as much, which had me really enjoying the ending. If you are looking for a quick romantic read about second chances, lots of steamy scenes and sweet moments between the characters then I would highly recommend reading this book and the first in the series as well. : )
