"Absolutely SWOON-WORTHY! Sweet and sexy and so romantic! Prepare to be swept away by Andrew and Grace!" - A.L. Jackson, New York Times bestselling author
One night of unbridled passion.
It was the only thing Andrew McPherson and Grace Morgan could afford.
They promised they would never see each other again, but fate had other plans. Andrew’s entire life has been spent working toward one goal—to own the top advertising and public relations company in the world. He’s driven, ruthless when it comes to business, never letting anything stand in his way…until Grace.
Grace has worked hard to build her advertising career. She’s fiercely talented and dedicated to her clients. Grace has no interest in getting involved with a man when she knows her focus should be on her career and paying off her mounting debt.
Andrew knows better than to get involved with a woman who is completely off limits, but he never backs down from what he wants, and he won’t stop until Grace is his…only this might cost him more than he’s willing to give.
I actually enjoyed this title, even though the review is a little neutral, so to speak.
The writing was strong, and the characters were fun and enjoyable...but, for some reason, I was never really that engaged with either Drew or Gracie. And, I have thought about it for a bit, and I think the reason is that nothing that happened was a surprise. I knew where the story was going to go, and I knew how they were going to get there, and for the most part I was right.
And, well, this is not all that uncommon a thing to happen in a romance, as there are certain things that have to happen, and that you know will, for the book to work as a romance. But, all of that said and acknowledged, this one fell flat on the way to the ending for me.
But, all of this said, I didn't necessarily dislike it, I think I was just wanting something that felt a little more original and not one that felt like it took the path that was the easiest to follow on the way to the happy ending.
I did enjoy and do recommend this book, as a fun but predictable romance.

There’s a loud knock on the conference room door that startles both Jamie and me. She jumps up and opens the door, just as Eddie pops his head inside. “Sorry to interrupt, ladies,” he starts. “We have the conference room reserved for a client meeting in five minutes.” I glance at my watch and see that it’s almost nine o’clock. Jamie and I have been in here for almost an hour. “Shit,” I mumble, grabbing my empty coffee cup. “I have to get to work.” “Me too,” says Jamie, following me from the conference room back toward our desks. I stop abruptly, causing Jamie to run into my backside when I see Drew standing in my cube, staring out my window over a cloudy, rainy Manhattan. His hands are shoved into his pockets and his dress shirt is rolled up to his forearms. Tan, muscular arms stick out from under that crisp dress shirt. Even casual, he looks like the powerhouse CEO that he is. My heart rate kicks up a notch at the sight of him. As Jamie nudges me forward, I clear my throat as I do my best to look unaffected by his presence. “Mr. McPherson,” I acknowledge him, but don’t look at him. I slide into my desk chair and enter the password to my computer, bringing the screen back to life. “Good morning,” he says from behind me and I still keep my eyes trained on my computer. “And good morning, Jamie,” he says, acknowledging her. I glance up at Jamie and see her smile at him knowingly. Dammit, Jamie. “Morning, Mr. McPherson. Busy weekend getting to know New York City?” she asks him with the kind of innocence only a skilled liar could pull off. I’m going to fucking kill her. I narrow my eyes at her and she winks at me. I spin around in my chair to look at Drew, whose eyes jump back and forth between us, and I can see he’s picked up that I’ve filled her in. I hang my head in shame and shake my head. “It was a wonderful weekend,” he tells her honestly. “Do anything exciting?” she asks, her tone snarky and her questions intruding. “Or anyone?” she says under her breath and I choke. “Are you okay?” Drew asks me. “Fine,” I cough out, tossing a glare at Jamie, who giggles and slides into her desk chair. I pick up a pen off my desk and throw it at her. It hits her back. She bursts into laughter and Drew shakes his head in amusement at us. He leans over my shoulder and whispers into my ear, “I missed you last night.” His warm breath causes me to shiver and catch my breath. “I didn’t like waking up and you not being there,” he continues, knowing the effect he has on me. I shift in my chair and sit up straight, trying to drown out the throbbing that has started between my legs. I spin slowly toward him and stop, his face mere inches from mine. “I slept remarkably well,” I tell him. He smiles. “Liar.” “I’m not lying,” I whisper. “You are.” He brushes a knuckle over my top lip and my skin breaks out in goosebumps. “When you lie, your upper lip twitches.” Jesus Christ, this man has me all figured out. I hold his gaze and my heart stammers in my chest. Looking at him, I can’t help but feel that I’ve missed him too. “I’d like to meet with you later to go over a few things,” he says, standing up. “How does eleven thirty in my office sound?” “Sounds fine,” I muster out. “See you then, Gracie.” Drew saunters out of my cube and down the hallway. I can’t help it as my eyes follow him as he walks through the rows of cubes until he reaches his office. I notice Jamie watching him too before she spins around in her chair and faces me. “Holy fuck,” she hisses. “That man has it bad for you.” I look back at Drew’s office and watch the door close before I look at Jamie again. “I know.” And sadly, I have it just as bad for him.
