Moving to Australia where no one knows him, Gordon has a plan to find what he really wants, which is everything he never had and thought he didn't need-until now-a woman to love him and to become his wife. His new neighbor in Australia, with her gothic looks, horrible taste in music, and amazing cooking gets in his way.
Dawn has a new neighbor, who at first is almost as bad as her last-calling the police on her for her loud music a couple of nights a week. One night, things change when she opens her door-not to the police, but to her new handsome neighbor.
Gordon gave himself a year to find a potential wife, and that year is close to an end. He finally gives in to the attraction he feels for Dawn despite their differences. Once he faces his true feelings, he realizes she's the only one for him, and he has fallen in love with her.
Only, his time is now up and he needs to go back to his old life. The problem is Dawn has no idea he is Gordon Wilks, CEO of Wilks and Co Financial, and the only son of a Dallas dynasty family. She thinks he is a lowly bartender.
Will Dawn stay with him when she learns the truth?

I really enjoyed this. The hero is a rich American businessman who thinks time is running out because he is 39 (I love a mature hero), so he does something crazy--he moves to Australia incognito and lives as a bartender for a year. He wants a wife and kids, and he doesn't want a wife to pretend to love him because he is rich and can get her into top society. The heroine is a lot younger (22) and is exactly what he needs, but he resists because of her age. She is sweet, but very strong, and can really cook. They start out annoying each other as neighbors, then become really good friends. She wants more, but doesn't do anything about it. When he realizes how much he cares for her, they get together about 3 months before he goes home. But, he doesn't tell her who he really is....Obviously we have a problem. The way it works out is great. I love both characters, and the dialog is great. I received an ARC in return for an honest review.
