Cold. Callous. Cocky.A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of.And he’s my new boss.None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible.But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back. It’s just one weekend. One weekend to convince a bunch of stuffy investors that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with.But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me.Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.


I loved everything about this book. I have read quite a few books from this author and she still continues to surprise me. One of the things I enjoy most about her is the characters she writes are so relatable. Well she nailed it again. Harper is a single mom with twins and she is a hot mess. She is struggling to make ends meat and finally gets a break. All of Harper’s thoughts and feelings are so true for a single parent. I was one so reading this just hit me in the heart. Just like Harper I thought who would want to date a struggling mom. I am currently going back to school also. And than there is Alex. He is an extremely complex character. To the outside world he’s spoiled, entitled and always had an easy life. But there is so much more to him. I think Alex and Harper compliment each other really well. There chemistry was amazing. I liked how he saw her and how she saw past the facade he puts up. One thing I was not expecting was a cliffhanger. That really threw me for a loop. I stare at my Kindle like I can’t wait til the next book to find out. I can’t wait to see what happens next! I highly recommend this book to any romance lover out there. You will fall in love with Harper and Alex
