Publisher's Summary

The coffee is rich. Hayden isn't. But Neal doesn't need to know that - yet.

Hayden Owens is just your typical graduate student working his way through school as a barista for the Owens Coffee Company - no relation. But he keeps the "no relation" part to himself when he meets dashing architect Neal Kirchner, a successful older man from an old-money family. Hayden doesn't exactly lie, but he figures it can't hurt for Neal to believe he's a rich kid. After all, Hayden doesn't want Neal thinking he's a gold digger.

The closer they become, the harder it gets for Hayden to come clean. Something always seems to get in the way. When a company bankruptcy and a jilted, vindictive woman threatens to expose his charade, Hayden thinks it's all gone down the drain. Luckily, Neal is ready with some innocent trickery of his own.

Fun, flirty, May/December/Billionaire romance

So I am usually no huge fans of billionaire romances but this being a Dreamspun Desire I know it's about the tropes and May/December IS one of my favorites. I will admit I fell in love with Neil and Hayden. There was something about Neil that didn't hit me as the typical billionaire. I loved both characters and the story line. There was a lot packed into a short story and it really worked.
Colin Darcy brought both Neil and Hayden to life. He showed lots of emotion and passion.
