Sadie is going to win the top sales award this quarter if she has to personally sell all her competitor’s products to do it. But working with Aiden—the guy who broke her heart last year—will put her ambition, and her fragile heart to the test. Aiden never should have ended things with Sadie. She was the best thing he had going for him during a horrible time. Now that she’s back in his life—even if it’s just in a professional role—he isn’t going to miss the chance to woo her back.
I’ll start by saying I liked this book. Aiden and Sadie are complex characters with mostly believable backstories. And I liked how they tried to get a rise out of one another. The bit I found a little far-fetched was how a thirty-year-old, gorgeous blonde like Sadie could have managed to remain a virgin. And Aiden messing up at the end, yet again, was a little frustrating. But the writing was good and the storyline kept me going. I give this a solid 4* for the hot love scene (when we finally get it) and the happy pay off at the end. Aiden and Sadie deserve their HEA.
