He’s the ruthless lawyer with a not-so-little black book, and one simple rule as unyielding as his heart: Nothing more than a month.

She’s the doctoral student helping to raise his niece. His brother’s best friend. And the valium for his soul he had no business wanting.

To be fair, she did ask him for advice—on what she could do to stop being ‘the nice girl’ for a little bit. All he did was answer truthfully: “Try something new that excites you.”

…Preferably him.

The first book of the Sullivan Brothers "Nice Girl Trilogy” that began the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling CAN'T RESIST series.

"A fast-paced, heartfelt, and fun read!" -- #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely

"This book gave me one of the worst (or best) book hangovers I've had in a LONG time. I absolutely LOVED it." -- Mama's Reading Break

  • Why?

    By Vvvroom86
    I was into the characters and story until Abby revealed her sexual history. It was so off-putting and gross, not to mention it made her a weak “heroine” for this story in my opinion. Do all romance stories have to stem from some undesirable, unhealthy sexual past? Women can be the so-called “good girl” while still owning her sexuality. Rant over.
  • Loved it

  • Abby & Conner, hearts know their hearts.

    By Newberryd
    I love Violet Duke's books!! Amazing stories that make you laugh, swoon, and cry a little. After reading them for the third time I was inspired to write a review. Book one is the story of Abby & Connor. It revels the hidden niceness of Connor Sullivan, and the chosen to be niceness of Abby Bartlett. She has a positive spirit that shows in her outlook on life and the way she chooses to live. Conner hides his nice nature under the guis of a ruthless lawyer, which he is also. I enjoyed the fun that they had together, and the hot scenes were steamy and swoon worthy. Knowing in advance that the stories were part of a set, I prefer to have them together. I recommend reading them in order to fully understand the characters and their entwined relationships.
  • Connor and Abby Resisting....

    Funny how thing go...I've had this book on my iPad for quite some time that now all the books in this series is complete. Somehow it got lost in ordering too many books at a time. I started reading another book by Violet Duke and loved it of course, so that's when this one came back to mind. I love me some Connor, he is a privilege, smart, handsome attorney, with a privilege lifestyle that includes giving women a month to date.....but he didn't plan to fall for his brothers best Friend Abby. Abby a bright, beautiful young woman, with a heart of gold. OMG! Can't wait to read the next part of series. Could she actually be in love with both brothers?
