He’s the hot new guy in the small-town Wyoming office, a bachelor from L.A. with a trail of divorces behind him. But something about Blake Cobb has Sadie Felix setting her sites on him—even though he might just be her biggest competition in the race for a much-coveted promotion. Still, a little workplace rivalry will only make the tension between them more thrilling. At least, that’s what Sadie hopes, until she learns Blake’s already dating the boss’s daughter…
She’s an ambitious corporate climber with a face and a body that could stop a clock. Which is exactly why Blake steers clear of Sadie Felix—he’s been there, done that, with disastrous results. Besides, his new girlfriend is a dead ringer for his first love—the one who got away. But when an office scandal throws the boss’s daughter in a new—and unflattering— light, Blake’s forced to see what’s been right in front of him all along…
Blake politely cleared his throat and leaned against the truck, angling his head against the cloudy sky to look at Sadie through the dark lenses of his retro sunglasses. Dark enough, he hoped, for her to not notice how his gaze kept returning to her bare legs. To be fair, they were literally in his face. And the way she kept bending over the chainsaw, a lightweight model suited to her small frame, checking this and that, made it even harder to stay focused on what she was saying. “You call your chainsaw Lambert?”
She looked down on him imperiously and replied straight-faced. “That’s his name. What else would I call him?”
If she wanted to name her chainsaw Buzz McChoppy, it was no business of his. He sensed more to the simple defensive reply, but it was hard to gauge Sadie’s current mood. She’d been a little muted since they left Fox Watch. It made the long drive out to wherever the hell they were mildly uncomfortable. He’d had the view to keep him occupied.
Blake scratched his chin. No good. He had to ask. “Everything okay with you?”
She hopped down with her arms full and shoved goggles and gloves into Blake’s chest, which he grasped a second before she let go. “Wes called me this morning.” She laughed. “So did Kennedy, but that’s a whole different pile of steaming crap.” He grappled with the items she’d handed him. “What did Wes want?” Besides the obvious. His gut reaction to Wes’s not-so-secret desire ran dangerously akin to jealousy. He studiously ignored this.
4 out of 5 (very good)

The lust and love you get from this book is amazing there is so much to take in but in a good way at the start you are getting to know the characters in the book you have Amanda avery who is the bosses daughter you have wes black who is always putting Sadie down but they have history which will captivate you then you have Kennedy who acts like a spoil child half the time but is best friends with Sadie then you have the man of the hour Blake who has problems he's living in the past and there's only one person to tell him how it is and that's Sadie.
