Kimberly Simmons is gorgeous, brilliant, and way out of my league. She’s definitely not the type to fall for a guy who walked away from his family’s fortune to become an architect. Good thing, too, because she works for Wolfe Industries, making her completely off-limits. Nailing this pitch to Wolfe’s CEO is exactly what I need to make my bosses forget about the last time I mixed business with pleasure. Too bad she has the most beautiful brown eyes and dazzling smile I’ve ever seen. Too bad I can’t stop staring.
Adam Price is a talented rising star architect at Will and Peking Designs. His newest design submission for The Wolfe Industries Caribbean Expansion is set to dazzle my CEO. If Adam’s design wins, with my help, I could get promoted, which means his big strong arms and gorgeous lips are strictly forbidden. It’s a good thing, too, because he has a reputation for leaving a trail of broken hearts all over Manhattan and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t survive a second heartbreak. Too bad every word he says makes me smile. Too bad he gives me a sense of calm I haven’t felt in a long time.
Keeping their relationship strictly professional for the sake of their jobs was the perfect excuse to stay away from each other. Too bad fate and undeniable chemistry have other plans…
Kimberly is a strong badass woman who doesn’t take any shit from anyone. She was such a fun character to read about and I admire her so much. If there is anyone I should probably be striving to be like, it’s her.
Adam Price is the man we all want and need and deserve. From the moment he entered this story and calmed Kimberly’s severe anxiety about flying, he shot straight up that book boyfriend list. He was such a sweetheart and looked out for Kimberly in so many different ways. The things he did to take care of this woman. I feel like the Grinch when his heart grew three sizes while reading this book.
Kimberly’s family is one of my favourite families to ever grace a novel as side characters. They were hilarious. I’ve definitely lost count of how many times they made me laugh out loud with their down to earth/funny moments.
Lucy Eden is such a great writer. Both the romance and the sex scenes were all written so well. The chemistry between Kimberly and Adam was also excellent. Everything about this book was so good and it basically comes down to the fact that Lucy Eden can write one hell of a swoon-worthy romance.
To conclude, if you guys are looking for the perfect romance that is cute and sexy and funny, then you absolutely need to pick up this book.
