Penny Robertson just wanted to get through the events leading to her sister's wedding with as little drama as possible. Smile until it hurt, avoid questions about her lack of someone special, then put it all in the rearview.

She wasn't counting on traipsing to The Red Door Club--or meeting the drop-your-panties sexy businessman, Xander Wade. Xander has a proposition for her: if she agrees to pretend she's his girlfriend for a month, he'll go with her to the wedding...and pay her twenty thousand dollars.
It seems like easy money; a business arrangement that benefits them both, but she wasn't counting on falling for him.

Xander Wade works hard and plays even harder. CEO of a cutthroat investment firm, his philosophy on romance is no strings attached.

When his ailing father threatens to boot him from the company if he doesn't settle down, Xander makes a choice to play the game. He'll pretend he's the marrying type for a month, then go back to the jet set life. No complications. No love.

He wasn't betting on Penny. A month seemed like a breeze before her. Now, a month isn't long enough...

This is the first book in the Falling For You Series by Ava Claire.


  • Great story, but short

    By Ijustwantpointslol
    “Because you want me” by Ava Claire is such a refreshing and charming story. I was very intrigued about how this story will end. The only down fall is it’s so short, but worth the read! Definitely recommend the download on Apple Books

    Good reading, but it ended abruptly. Is it really the end or was the free reading just a teaser?

    By CathyClemenceau
    This is a pretty cute story, and suspenseful at the end, it makes you wonder about Victoria. What secrets does she have, why does she care, and will we see their relationship evolve?
