The Devil You Know by Mimi Wells

When event planner Calla Stewart learns that there is a potential buyer for her South Florida family home, the neglected mansion her father left behind for his daughter to deal with when the market crashed, Calla makes the trek from Cali to meet the buyer in person. But the buyer is no stranger. It is none other than Dom Cameron, the man who left Calla on a fateful night during her senior year in college a decade ago.

Dom came from a poor Glasgow neighborhood and never fit in with the wealthy crowd that defined Calla’s world. Working his way to become a successful businessman and soccer star, he is back to settle a score. He tells Calla that he will take the property off her hands if she gives him ten days as his personal assistant, introducing him around Miami.

Having broke free from her father’s money and making it on her own, Calla is left with no choice but to comply, but getting one’s revenge isn’t as satisfying when lust and love get in the way.

Wells (The Billionaire’s Deception) is skilled at creating empathetic characters who go through a personal growth and triumph in the end. The sexual tension between Dom and Calla and the confusion behind what really happened on the night in question from years ago keep the pages turning at a fast clip.
