Release Date: Aug 8 2013

Blurb/Synopsis:

Even good girls make mistakes.

Kira was shocked to meet her boss’s handsome, long-absent son and find him even more lethal in the flesh. He’d always been just a face in a photo - and nothing had prepared her for the way they clashed and burned when they finally met.

Blake Carter returned to America for a reunion with a father he hadn’t seen since he was ten. But Blake had never bargained for falling for his father’s sexy secretary, the beautiful and impressionable Kira Taylor…

Blake caught one glimpse of the gorgeous beauty from across the crowded room and felt the primal taste of desire like he’d never known. The sparks were more antagonism than attraction on her part as they collided over differences about the way he treated his father. But Blake had very strong persuasive skills when it came to bringing the vulnerable Kira to bend to his carnal passions…

A_TiffyFit's Review: I initially had mixed feelings about this book. I mean...she has a BOYFRIEND and she's utterly consumed with the sexy hotness of her boss's son, including having sex dreams about him, and she keeps her boyfriend at arm's length anyway. Cheating in books is a turn off for me, but you know what? Terrence freaking deserved it anyway, that violent, vile, pretentious jerkwad. Grrrrr!

Like with many romances, there's a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am-oh-my-god-I-love-you deal here. But, it's not QUITE insta-love because it's only one-sided. Cue the heartfelt sigh for unrequited love. *long dreamy sigh* Blake ends up having to work hard at winning Kira over. He has a lot going against him from her psyche due to her past, his treatment of his long-estranged father whom Kira works for and adores, his callous "gift", etc. Plus he has rich, social-climbing, jealous schmucks like Brittany draping themselves over him, getting in the way of his attempts to court Kira.

Sexy and steamy with a plot that is multi-faceted, this shorter novel is one you can read in one sitting and come away from smiling. Better than just smiling; first you get a little fistpump of justice dealt and THEN you get the Happily Ever After smiles.
