Simple Pleasures by Natasha Simmons
The novel chronicles two months of a compelling love affair between the chaste Alexandra Wyatt, a brand-new law graduate, and the passionate Joshua Phoenix, a handsome professor. To look at her, no one would believe that the gorgeous Alex has had only one date in her life, and that, a disaster. Having devoted herself to her late father, a prominent lawyer, and his aspirations for her law career, Alex has so far led a cloistered life and erected monumental defenses. That is, until she spontaneously hugs Professor Phoenix as he hands her the diploma and sets her nerve ends to tingling. Now, Alex has to decide: defense, or surrender? living up to others’ expectations, or simply living? Add in a ten-million dollar inheritance, a conniving ex-girlfriend in league with Joshua’s scheming mother, his playboy brother, and Alex’s estranged best friend who is trying to escape an abusive husband, and the plot is rife with intrigue.
