This book was released on 2007-07-12 with total page 343 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Olduvai Bed I archaeological sites have been at the epicenter of the debate on how early humans behaved.

With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart. Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone—only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance. Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe.

Now he needs a fake girlfriend and she’s the perfect woman for the job. Not to mention time together will give him a chance to win her over. A few months ago, Dash offered a shoulder for Cassidy Forrester to cry on. Somehow they wound up spending the night together. A night she thought meant something—until she woke up alone. She’s now serving as the band’s temporary personal assistant. But acting as Dash’s fake girlfriend is definitely not part of the job description. For the band’s sake, she agrees to play the role.
