I found this novel through BookBub. It wasn't what I normally read, but what the heck, it was free. I was hooked after the first chapter. I loved how Brady changed from being a pompous ass to Rachel to being her friend. Then when he discovers her secret, the passion explodes. After I was done, I purchased the next in the series.
