Product Description

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 Niall Hunter--who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. She's determined not to let her guard down again--among other things--around the infamous Irish lothario.
Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend's little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture...especially when he promised his friend he'd stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he's not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can't stop wanting her. Can't stop touching her. Can't stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to...

To make the prince of her dreams jealous, Khloe Richardson needs a date, but when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, she gets the infamous lothario that gave her one night of passion and then left without a word in this spellbinding contemporary romance.

Niall Hunter promised his friend he’d stay away but here he is transforming his sister’s best friend from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the gripping fairy tale as Niall can’t seem to remember just why he’s not supposed to want Khloe. The sizzling chemistry keeps intense desires burning strong between Khloe and Niall but due to a few emotional hang ups, past mistakes and the desire to honor his best friend’s wishes this relationship is stuck in a holding pattern full of emotional turbulence. These strong, compelling characters grab the reader’s attention while they capture the heart and the fast paced, smooth flowing plot captivates readers with lots of suspense, turmoil and romance.

Spine tingling tension catches the readers from the very beginning as Khloe is swept up into a situation that she feels is out of her league in order to achieve her heart’s desires and the tension continues to spiral higher as Niall sets out to help her with her goals of attracting another man. The intriguing events ensures that the readers want to know every last detail of Khloe’s transformation and Niall’s determination to keep his hands to his self and the well written scenes and details make it easy to picture each and every moment.

Another Bachelor Auction has sent my imagination into overdrive and has me wanting to bid on my own sexy bachelor of course, Khloe was lucky she had Niall to help her with her transformation….where can I find a Niall to help me with mine….hmmm?

This was my first Naima Simone narrative and what a nice surprise it was! The Millionaire Makeover had a light scenario that was reminiscent of a modern day Ugly Duckling fairytale, yet was also quite deep and very, very seductive.
All the characters, but especially the main ones, were well-developed and fit in perfectly with the fast-paced storyline. Khloe was the hidden beauty, but with low self-esteem thanks to overbearing parents. In addition, her love life was unspectacular to say the least. Wealthy and successful Niall, her dead brother Michael's best friend, was an Irish Henry Caville lookalike, but embittered and with his own backstory. Grief-stricken by Michael's death, Khloe and a drunk Niall sought solace in each other's arms, but Niall felt guilty and bailed afterwards. Khloe was devastated because to her, it meant something/everything. Fast forward three years and in true rom-com style, Khloe won a date with the masked Niall at a charity bachelor auction. By this time, Khloe had moved on (sort of) and believed she was in love with her boss, Bennett (unrequited). She tried to put the whole 'Niall fiasco' to rest. However, Niall was inlisted to help Khloe 'shine' to make Bennett jealous and he needed to honour a promise. The dialogue and banter was exquisite, but the rub? Both Khloe and Niall's feelings for each reignited.
I liked Naima Simone's style of writing which was a mix of contemporary with a more classic style. She obviously loves language and uses it well to describe, create imagery, frame the POVs and move the plot along. It was refreshing to read a book in past tense rather than the newly fashionable present tense, too.
This book was a sweet, fun, humourous escapism narrative that didn't seem to require a lot deep thinking. Yet, it's deceiving, as Naima's inclusion of reflections, conversations, conflict, a range of emotions and vibrant descriptions, really does require a lot of thought.

One of the very best romances I've read out of the last 50. Loved the make over, loved her curves, lived her belief in herself and loved that her brother had the "sight" and was still a character in the plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am officially on the Naima Simone bandwagon. 11 February 2016
By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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 as often as he changes socks. His past has lead him to believe he isn’t the forever kind of guy. Khloe is a pleaser. She’s a computer programmer for a Boston company. For whatever reason, she likes to hide herself. She views herself as a plain-Jane. The two have been friends for years, having met when Niall became friends with Khloe’s brother Michael.

Khloe has forever written all over her. She desperately wants to attract the attention and affection of the COO of the company she works for. Her best friend, Morgan, convinces her the way to get the COO’s attention is through another man. Together the two attend a bachelor auction where as fate would have it, they bid on and win a date with Niall. In order to keep a promise to his best friend, Niall agrees to help Khloe attract the man of her dreams. The type of man she deserves.

Naima has brought humor and heat to an emotional story. What transpires is a tale of love, loss, redemption, forgiveness, and above all else learning yourself worth.

The Millionaire Makeover is the second book in the Bachelor Auction series. It is completely a standalone read. While I’m definitely going to go back and read the first book, Beauty and the Bachelor, I’m hoping Khloe’s friend Morgan gets her own story. Morgan is a force of nature and the friend every woman should have. Plus, I would love to see the man who can manage to tame her.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining love story by author Naima Simone 31 January 2017
By Linda Murphy on - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An entertaining love story by author Naima Simone, especially when you believe that love is out of your reach for someone you can never have.....Having a secret crush for her boss, computer programmer Kloe Richards couldn't believe that she actually allowed her best friend to coax her into bidding on a millionaire at a bachelor auction, in hopes, of outbidding everyone else to secure herself a date for an upcoming charity gala, in order to make her boss jealous, since he would be attending too. Sounds like a plan, right? Only she had no idea at the time that her plans were about to backfire. Like turning back the clock, Kloe was stunned who she ended up with, especially when the identity of the bachelor was revealed, believing all these years she would never see him again, but the moment they first looked at each other, all the hurts, old feelings, insecurities, and painful memories came rushing back. He was Irish millionaire Niall Hunter, her late brother Michael's best friend, who so long ago, robbed her of her virginity and abruptly rejected her by sending her away. Not only did it hurt immensely, but he turned his back on her and she hadn't heard from him in years until tonight. Before her brother was killed, all three of them were the best of friends, but soon after, everything had changed. Why? In that moment, Kloe just wanted to run as fast as she could because she never wanted to see Naill again. Irish millionaire Naille Hunter, couldn't believe his eyes when he first saw Kloe after all these years. He also would never forget that hot smoldering night he shared with her, but the minute he discovered that she was a virgin, Niall knew that he just made the biggest mistake of his life. Besides, she was his best friend's little sister, and he made a promise to Michael to stay away from her, and the moment he realized what he had done, he treated her badly, totally rejected her by sending her away and convinced himself, he would never see her again, that is, until now. Now, she not only outbid everyone else, but Niall had to take her to the formal charity gala, and what made matters worse, he was also coaxed by her best friend, to give his plain Jane Kloe a millionaire makeover, just to make her boss jealous. Even though he agreed to help her, his biggest problem was he still craved her body and he was becoming more and more jealous that she found this guy marriage material, where Niall wasn't the forever kind of guy, but just when he thinks he can handle it, he realizes he's never been more wrong. When sparks begin to fly between Niall and Kloe, they both discover some shocking revelations about the other, forcing them to take a hard good look at themselves or risk losing any future of true happiness. Is true love in the cards for Niall and Kloe? This book was so enjoyable..thank you..

5.0 out of 5 stars Seduction and sass at his finest... 11 March 2017
By Tbascoebuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well after that epilogue, I'm now blubbering buckets. BUCKETS! Yet I'm smiling. My makeup is smeared and my nose is locked up tight and I've a pile of tissues next to me. Don't get me wrong..this isn't a sad story. It's a wonderfully happy story with lots of delicious controversy and angsty drama. I rarely give 5★ reviews...but, I dunno...this one deserved every star. I loved 25 y/o Khloe Richardson's character. She's genuine and her low self-confidence epitomizes what so many women feel about themselves. Khloe is a REAL woman with a real woman's body. Curvy and fuller. Khloe doesn't see her beauty. She's comfortable being the dowdy wallflower... socially awkward and mousey. She blushes a lot and sometimes stutters and trips over words. All clever repartee and witty words escape her genius brain when she's approached by a handsome man. More than anything, Khloe wants a family --- she wants marriage and kids and the white picket fence with a loving, committed, exciting man by her side...one who values her. BUT....not from Niall Hunter....her childhood crush and brother's best friend. Nope not him...because she hates him!

Niall Hunter is trying his hardest to live up to a promise he made to his best friend, Michael...to take care of his kid sister should anything happen to him (Michael). Niall promises to look out for her (and stay away from her). And he's going to hell because he wants Khloe is the worst way. She's everything he desires in a woman. From her sassy stubbornness to her attempting to hide her genuine beauty. But even if he never made that promise to his best friend, it was already too late because he'd burned all his bridges where Khloe is concerned. Khloe wants a knight is shining armor and the whole nine yards and that's NOT him. Not even remotely close. Anyway, she hates him! Still....he can't get her outta his head.

A wonderfully fun and entertaining story of a guarded and wounded man...a rogue and womanizer who feels worthless; who abandons his best friends' sister when she was at her most vulnerable...even though it was for the sake of a promise being kept....AND despite his obsessive attraction to her. And THEN....trying to mend the broken fences again. Ms. Simone conveys the heartbreak and angst perfectly. The charade begins with a superb cast and secondary characters as well, described with precise clarity. Khloe's BFF (Morgan) was Khloe's perfect polar opposite. This story is full of misunderstandings and false assumptions told in perfect timing and paced with a delightfully witty dialogue. In little time I was emotionally connected to each character. A wonderful ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read. 22 March 2016
By Lori Zenobia - Published on Amazon.com

What a great book... and yes I am partial to Naima. She can't write a bad book. I read this in one sitting.
Another winner in the Bachelor Auction series. Khloe and Niall. A couple with history and a not so great one. When Khloe's friend tries to set her up with her dream guy at the auction, let's say it just backfires and she ends up with Niall. A man who still holds her in contempt and the feeling is mutual.
Niall and her brother were best friends and after he dies, they have that one night of bliss and Niall pushes her away. Khloe shuts off after that and sees Niall as nothing more than a player. Which he is, yet she enlists him to try and get the attention of a man she has her eye on. Niall is having none of that, he's an ass about it, pretty much like everything else. Niall is torn between keeping his promise to her older brother and best friend who died, to look after her and make sure she has someone worthy of her goodness. That leaves him out. Seriously though, these two steamed it up, Naima can write the wicked smoking scenes. As reticent as Khloe is about Niall I can't say I would have been as readily forgiving as she seemed after the way he treated her. And surely I would question his motivation. Nonetheless, this is a great book 2 in the series. I loved it and would highly recommend this book and also book one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Naima Simone. 29 August 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Every book from this author has it all. There is always a little angst, a little humor, lots of emotion...because I always find a moment of sweetness in her books that makes me cry. The most important job an author has is transporting the reader and this author does it in spades. The protagonists are always lovable and strong. The heat level is perfect. The whole Naima experience is wonderful. Well done.
