Not Until You (The Second Time Around Book 3) Kindle Edition
I have two rules in life:
1. No relationships, falling in love or attachments.
2. No sleeping with clients of my interior design firm.
Since the last guy turned out to be married, they’ve been easy to follow.
Callum Huxley is a ridiculously sexy Brit, and the connection we have the moment our eyes lock scares the ever-loving hell out of me. Thank God I came to my senses before going back to his hotel where I would’ve ended up naked, panting, and unable to forget him.
Thinking I walked away from that night unscathed was stupid. Sure enough, at the biggest meeting of my career waits the CEO of Dovetail Enterprises—him.
It might be the most embarrassing moment of my professional life. And breaking my no-client rule might just be the hottest moment of my personal life.
Learning to trust has never felt so good, but falling has never hurt so bad.
There are four standalone novels in The Second Time Around Series.
We Own Tonight (Heather & Eli)
One Last Time (Kristin & Noah)

This book, Not Until You, is about Nicole Dupree and is the third book in the series. Nicole is feisty, independent and quick witted, as well as a very free spirit. She owns a successful interior design company in Tampa, Florida. She is happy to be on her own taking care of herself and answering to no man. She has witnessed several unhappy marriages and divorces. Her own parents divorced and her father has had several wives since he was married to her mother. So needless to say she is happy on her own.
That being said, her mother is constantly trying to be a matchmaker with men Nicole’s age at the club she belongs to. In a weak moment Nicole agreed to join her mother for lunch one day as long as there was no matchmaking involved. Unfortunately, or quite possibly fortunately, her mother can’t help herself and a man by the name of Ted ends up joining them. Nicole has already had the displeasure of his company on a previous date where he smelled like onions and tried to get her to pay the bill. The fortunate part here is that Ted was also meeting with Callum Huxley, quite possibly the handsomest man in the room and he has a panty melting British accent to Nicole’s delight. There is an immediate attraction between Nicole and Callum and it looks as though they are destined for a hookup after this dreadful lunch is over. That never happens though because Nicole gets spooked by the strong attraction and sneaks out before plans can be made.
Two days later Nicole has a meeting set with Martin Dovetail of Dovetail Enterprises. However she gets quite a shock when Callum shows up instead of Martin. It seems Mr. Dovetail passed away and his son Callum is the new CEO. He has quite a lucrative business offer for Nicole’s design firm and he makes it clear he’s definitely interested in her too. She has a hard rule of ‘no sleeping with clients’ and is insistent on sticking to it. From here the chase is on and the more she fights him off the more he is in pursuit. Grab your copy and relax and enjoy the push and pull of Nicole and Callum’s love story.
I have devoured this series and each book has been a five ⭐️ read for me. I love the way Corinne Michaels weaves a story and draws you in to her page turning hot reads.
In all seriousness, Nicole was the one woman out of this friend quad that I've worried the most about while reading this series. She's a successful designer who doesn't want to be tied down, has a healthy sexual appetite, and says and does whatever she wants. She doesn't date, only having one night stands and men she has arrangements with. She is not shy at all about regaling her friends with her sexual interludes. Why would that make me worry, you ask? Because I have felt all along that she is this way because something happened to her in her past that has caused her to put on a suit of armor. And in reading her story, we find out exactly what that was.
Callum seemed almost too good to be true. How is this super hot, alpha Brit not already snatched up by someone? Nicole has this same question, and as much as she tries to guard her heart, she can't resist the pull that Callum seems to have on her. But he is her client, and she has a strict no sleeping with clients policy so how is she going to get through working for him?
I loved the push and pull between these two characters. Nicole tries so hard to not fall for Callum, but alas it is inevitable. And the way that Callum treated Nicole and the way he expresses his feeling for her had me swooning all over. There would be no way I would be able to resist him.
Corinne brings us a story full of emotions, with Nicole's running the gamut throughout. Can she open her heart to someone after steadfastly keeping it closed off for so long? Callum is going to do everything he can to win her over.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the scorching hot sexy times these two have. Nicole is not afraid to tell a man what she wants, and Callum is all to happy to oblige her. She is a lucky, lucky girl!
It was great seeing the other women and their other halves again. If you haven't read the other stories in this series, I highly recommend you pick them up and get to know Heather and Kristen's stories. And I am excited for Danielle's story that is coming up next.
Another amazing story, Corinne!

Beautiful, smart, very independent and professional, Nicole Dupree owns her own interior designer company in Tampa. And following a break-up with a married man, she is certainly not interested in relationships or falling in love and definitely does not date clients.
However, fate hits her in the face, when CEO Callum Huxley (the guy from the restaurant) turns up for the biggest meeting of her life. Callum is British, and is now CEO of Dovetail Enterprises following the death of his father, who Nicole had previously met and pressured for a meeting.
Millionaire Callum is gorgeous, possessive and sweet. He is smitten with Nicole and to keep her close is prepared to up her contract price from one million dollars to three million dollars. Because he wants her to be 'his' and be his exclusive interior designer for several projects.
Eventually, after some serious negotiations, out spoken Nicole softens and agrees to date Callum, though, making it clear that on signing the contract, their relationship will end. Obviously, Callum as other ideas. What these are, turns out to quite imaginative. Also the twist and turns in the plot and the interaction of family members plus Nicole's close quirky friends makes this a MUST read book
Nicole Dupree has met her match when it comes to Callum Huxley!
The passion between these two is so hot its sizzling, its like lava that’s just bubbling simmering away nicely until that pull becomes too strong to hold back from and can no longer be ignored!
I love love love the Friendship between Nicole and her Girls, so much fun and banter but so much love, care and loyalty! I want to be Nicole’s bezzie! She’s so funny, witty and I love her fiery confident outspoken forward attitude and her one liners are the best but behind that wall is a softer side.
Even after reading the bonus epilogue I still don’t want to let these two go!
Roll on Danielle & Milo’s story!!
