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 Nial

5 - "I'd rather have a Brazilian than go on a date with him!" Stars!

I only discovered Naima Simone’s writing last year, and I have to say she has delivered absolutely stellar books on both occasions. The Millionaire Makeover is the second book in The Bachelor Auction series, but I haven’t read the first and it had absolutely no impact on my enjoyment of this one.

Older Brothers best friend, is a winning trope for me, and Naima took the story between Niall and Khloe a little bit further in that he

Virgin/Manwhore. H took her virginity, then proceeded to ditch her. In the three years since, he even had the time to get married and divorced. I don't know if the h hooked up with anyone else, but it's looking like a no because not only does the synopsis describe her as being a "shy wallflower," but she also needs help getting a date.

(I had originally marked this one as to-read, but after the dithering of the h in the first book, I have a feeling this is going to be more of the same. Pass.)

This book is from Entangled’s Indulgence label and that’s exactly what it was, a sweet guilty pleasure to indulge in. The tropes of falling for your best friend’s little sister, falling for the callous millionaire and the ugly duckling turning into a swan are all captured in this story and I must admit, I really enjoyed it.

Khloe has done a spectacular job of blending into the background her entire life but when her crush on a co-worker drives her to wanting to become more than furniture, her bes

My favorite thing about this book was the chemistry between Khloe and Niall. Niall was best friends with Khloe's older brother. After Khloe's brother passes away, Niall and Khloe find comfort in each other for a night. The next morning, Niall pushes Khloe away because he promised he would never hurt her. 3 years later and they end up back in each others lives. The chemistry between them was amazing. I had only one small complaint about this book (view spoiler)

Lots of smutnip for me: Tall, dark and handsome but broody hero. Nerdy, curvy heroine. A makeover and lots of sexual tension. While the broody was a bit overwhelming, there was alot that I did enjoy.

The Setup: The story begins with Niall waking up from the latest one night stand, still a big foggy from drinking and mourning. That clears in a heartbeat when he realizes that his latest is Khloe, his best friend’s little sister. The best friend who just died. The guilt is huge, and then said BFF Mi

I really enjoyed this story. My first read by Naima Simone, The Millionaire Makeover told the story of Niall and Khloe. Niall was carrying a lot of guilt over the death of his best friend, Michael. Khloe was Michael’s off-limits sister who also had a major crush on Niall.

This story had all of the things I love in a good millionaire love story. Niall was an alpha tough guy. He came off as

There are some types of stories that offer a tried and true storyline I just love to read and review. Easy flowing, a delight to read, entertaining with characters you enjoy getting to know. This one is exactly that.

The Millionaire Makeover was a fun book to read. I love the whole concept of a best friend's little sister, fall in love, steamy hot storyline. This one also included of fun bachelor auction. How can you go wrong with a story like that?

I really enjoyed The Millionaire Makeover. The storyline was engaging from the first page and my interest as held until the end.
Loved the interaction between the main characters and the drama was well written.

Overall a heartwarming read and I highly recommend it.

Thank you Entangled Indulgence for the advance copy.

What I was expecting was a funny, sexy romp with our hot millionaire and our adorable, "geeky" heroine. Well, I got that, but SO much more. Simone takes us on a fun ride with clever and witty banter and inner monologue that had me literally laughing out loud. But she also twisted my heart into mush on several occasions. Especially the ending. *sigh* Brilliant, fun, and swoony romcom you don't want to miss.

Recommended for lovers of hilarious romcom and smoking hot, dark and broody Irishmen! ;)

I have had read some decent books from this author, so I will continue to check out more works from this author in the future. However, for this book, it is simply not my cup of tea.

The plot is not original, boy loves girl, girl loves boy, they slept together, but boy can't get together with the girl, because the girl is his dead best friend's sister, and she deserve better than him. (Gag!) So boy treats girl badly after sleeping with her and disappeared from her life. Years later, boy m

This second story in the Bachelor Auction series (easily read as a standalone ) is a sexy 'best friend's little sister' trope romance. Niall blames himself for his best friend Michael's death, and though in a grief filled haze he turned to Michael's younger sister Khloe to forget, he's never forgiven himself for their one night of passion in which she gave him her trust (and her virginity). Wracked with guilt, he cut off all contact, leaving Khloe alone and grieving not only her brother but the ...more

If you're looking for a sexy read with a great couple that has humour and will leave you with a serious case of the warm and fuzzies, then The Millionaire Makeover ticks all the boxes. Pretty much everything worked for me; the writing style, the story and the characters were a treat and this is coming from someone who isn't easily pleased when it comes to romances containing makeovers. But when you're presented with a heroine who, on the whole, does it for herself and her reasons, then that make ...more

Really good read!

Niall and Khloe was such a passionate couple and left me very in touch with their connection.

If Cinderella and Ugly Duckling had a baby, this book would be it. It has a bit of that hallmark-ish vibes, but it's not that pg-13 so we get some good ol' steamy goodness. (thank god!) ;).

Honestly, this book was cute as hell and I really enjoyed it. Maybe not as much as book 4 in the series but if you look for a nice, easy read with a brooding hero and a sweet but a bit naive heroine, go for it.
These two have some really nice chemistry going on and the pace is really good. Same as

“Millionaire Makeover” is my first book by Naima Simone, and it will definitely not be my last. Right up front: this is not a typical millionaire book. And for me, that’s a good thing. For some reason, the trope of some prick rich guy falling for his secretary doesn’t really speak to me (Pride and Prejudice notwithstanding). The fact that the guy has money is not really integral to the plot; in fact, this is really more of a second chance romance.

A slightly disappointed three stars.

This had all the hallmarks of a great romance: Niall Hunter is a sexy billionaire who takes the virginity of best friend's little sister Khloe Richardson whilst drunk and mourning his best friend's death. He then finds a letter from his best friend, Michael, asking him to stay away from Khloe, because she deserved someone better, someone who could give her the white picket fence, children and dogs that she wanted.

Oh my gosh!!! I am officially on the Naima Simone bandwagon. Why I haven’t hopped on board before, I have no idea..

The Millionaire Makeover is more than your usual best friend/sibling trope. The story has a bit of sadness and loss to it. However, it’s the loss that makes this story all the more sweeter in the end.

Off the bat, Niall Hunter and Khloe Richardson are two characters you can’t help but like. Niall is an Irish record company CEO and owner. He’s a millionaire playboy who changes women a

I just love when you have a tortured soul who thinks they're unworthy of any kind of happily-ever-after. That's why I truly enjoyed Niall and Khloe's story. This story had all the makings of a great love story for me. The handsome, rich, tortured millionaire b.k.a Niall Hunter, who doesn't think he deserves anything more than meaningless relationships with many unmemorable women.

Another sure fire winner by Ms Simone!!! I love her books. They are great little nuggets of awesomeness. Great characters, fabulously well written characters and a story you can really sink your teeth into! The characters make you feel genuine concern for them and you're rooting for their HEA!!!

Millionaire Makeover was a sumptuous read, I easily got lost in the world of Niall and Khloe. I'm a sucker for the old best friends sister/brother trope so this was right up my alley. I loved to hate Nia

Wow what a wonderful read! I loved the story and it has some strong as well as well developed characters. And the ending was just epic, brought tears to my eyes.
All Khloe wants is a date for a gala. She thinks she is love with her boss but he has never paid any attention to her. Now this is her last desperate attempt to make him notice her. But somehow she ends up with Niall being her date. She hates him and can't stand his presence so now she cannot even go the gala..

I found that second chance love could be undoubtedly the best. The heat, the fire, the chemistry along with the hurt, the lost, the confusion. Naima Simone brings me into the world of Khloe and Niall. A 4star Makeover. Their one night of passion has been cast in to the role of being just for comfort from the loss of someone close to them both. Now life has dealt them a second chance with a few bumps in the way.

Niall can be quite the jealous man, “because another man’s hands were on you. Because another man sat at your side like you were his. Because I wanted to beat the ***t out of him for daring to touch you, but I didn’t have the right.” I liked this book Niall was one strong alpha.

That was one, scorching hot read! Naima Simone seriously doesn't hold back on the sex and the plain talking! This book, sizzled!

Some of the scenarios might've been contrived, especially with Michael interfering from beyond the grave, but it was such a lovely, honest story. Niall, a man unaccustomed to love, finds himself missing his best friend, and deeming himself unworthy of the love of the most amazing woman he had ever known... who also happened to be his dead best friend's little sis
Khloe has hatched the perfect plan: go to a bachelor auction (as you do), take her bachelor as her date to the office Christmas party, and when her longtime crush sees her with another man, he’ll suddenly realize she’s everything he’s ever wanted and fall for her on the spot. Shockingly, this plan falls apart almost immediately, as the bachelor she wins turns out to be Niall, the gorgeous Irish hunk who broke her heart years ago.

4.5 stars - My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

It’s not often you get a Cinderella tale where the hero is both the fairy godmother and Prince Charming. Niall Hunter plays both roles in The Millionaire Makeover , and the results are fantastic. Naima Simone’s second Bachelor Auction novel is fast, fun, sexy, and tugs on the heartstrings in the best way.

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 readin
