Kelly is a divorced mother of two young boys and she needs a good job. When she lands a temporary position with Jason Knight’s athletic apparel company, she hopes for the best. What she gets is a hot boss who has no problem checking out her cleavage. The thing is, he is hot. And kind. And creative. And fun. So when business takes the two to New York, would anyone blame Kelly if she took “dictation”?
This is a flimsy, frothy book with little going for it aside from cute characters you will absolutely enjoy. We understand Kelly. She has two sons, her marriage was not a success, and she just wants security for her family. But she also needs love and romance, even as it scares her. Jason Knight is a man with a reputation for loving the ladies, yet he seems to enjoy her boys. And he treats her respectfully (once he stops staring at her cleavage). He’s also a man trying to prove something, whether it’s that he can run his company successfully or that he is not a womanizer.
Don’t go looking for sexy times, because you won’t find them here. The love scenes are fairly tame, especially considering the vast quantity of smut that I read. There were times I wanted more explicit writing, but that might diminish the cutness factor. And this book most certainly is cute.
I enjoyed it, I have to say. It is not without its flaws, but it’s an enjoyable, quick read.
