Mia Bradshaw realized long ago that falling in love is a harbinger of pain. As a single mom working for one of the most prestigious venture capital firms in the country, she doesn’t have time for serious emotional entanglements. Her sort-of–friend boy is dependable, respectful and…okay, fine, maybe a little lukewarm but whatever! Who ever said there was anything wrong with being…vanilla? It’s safe, low-risk and not fraught with conflict and heart wrenching disappointment.
Chris Camden is one of the most eligible bachelors in northern California. A successful entrepreneur with a hot car and a panty-dropping grin doesn’t need to do much to keep his bed warm at night. His smoldering hazel-eyed gaze makes women melt at his feet. No strings, no conditions, no questions - just the way he likes it. Why should he settle for just one when there are so many sizzling alternatives begging for a spin?
A coveted opportunity to partner with Chris’s company stirs up emotions that threaten everything Mia’s been so careful to protect and control. The guy with more lines than a crowded supermarket before a snowstorm can singe her insides with the slightest accidental touch, proof that she needs to steer clear.
But reality hurls a very unexpected curve ball that can change Mia’s life in a heartbeat. And sometimes…the perception of safety is relative.
Review by Tabitha:
First off I want to say that this author is a MUST READ!!! I absolutely fell in love with her first book, Unlikely Venture and was super duper excited when she asked me to read and review this one. Her attention to detail in every single aspect of her books blows me away. Mia and Chris are awesome characters both of which I fell in love with instantly. The story flows so well and had me hooked from beginning to the very end. I started reading while in my pjs drinking my coffee and finished it still in my pjs drinking decaf coffee. Needless to say, my hubby and kids had sandwiches for dinner because I was so into this book and just could not put it down. This story really had it all...some really funny moments, hot and steamy moments and of course there is a bad guy. I love that we get to see Mia and Chris grow as individuals. Mia is a single mom to an adorable daughter, Chloe, and she is doing everything she can to provide the best life for her and she is certain that playboy Chris Camden is not it. However, no matter how hard she tries she just can't shut off her feelings for him and he is having the same problem with his feelings for her. I love the dynamics of all the characters including the fantastic secondary ones. I can't wait to read more from this fantastic author. If you haven't read either of her books you really need to go get both of them, you will not regret it!! I rate this one 5 AMAZEBALLS stars!!
