I was a little torn with how to rate this book. While I did enjoy the concept of the story I felt a little lost sometimes. I felt like I was supposed to know some of the character backgrounds going into the story which was not true. The story also just stopped and left me thinking what?!?!? I take it the book will pick up where it left off in the 2nd installment but I just wish there had been a bit more of the story told in this book before it just stopped. Overall, I would probably recommend this book but I definitely would warn anyone wanting to read it that you will be hanging until the next one comes out.
I received an ARC of this book compliments of the publisher and Barclay Publicity via NetGalley for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
Miranda, who is a very strong, independent, and hard working woman, is working an open house for her friend Drake Lockhardt, showing his condo's that he has available in his new building Skyline. Although she's not a Realtor, she does have her own event planning business called Gala, where she provides nothing but the absolute best when it comes to her clients social functions and/or dressing up condo's that are for sale.
When Drake's friend Harvey (Tack) Tackett shows up to take a look at the available condo's, he and Miranda make an instant connection. But instead of acting on their obvious chemistry, they go through the motions of playing Realtor and potential buyer. Then he leaves with Drake to go look at some horses, leaving Miranda in a fog of missed opportunity, where she thinks of Tack all day and only him.
...until he comes back to Skyline at the end of the day to find Miranda closing up shop. Then all bets are off the table for the night. Unfortunately, though, after their steamy night together Miranda doesn't hear from Tack, then the reality of having to go deal with her ill mother sets in, and she consumes herself with that.
I gotta say I really enjoyed this book, once again I liked that Ms. Jeffrey adds characters from her other books, and sort of keeps them around so you really don't have to say goodbye to them after you've finished reading their story. This book had a great flow, it moved right along and didn't drag. The sex was great, and now I can't wait to find out what happens next with these two in the next book!
She dutifully shows him the choices of condos. Including the penthouse, where they stall for time and a bit of flirting. She is overwhelmed by her feelings for him. Very aware he is the type of man she can fall for, she steers the conversation more professional.
Tack surprises her by coming back later to tell her of his interest. He believes they both know what they want so why not have it? She worries it would make her seem cheap and easy. She is supposed to work here, after all. Yet it seems he does not want to take a "no" for an answer.
While they both feel the attraction and sizzle and turn up the heat between them - is there even a future for her with a man who is as wild as his nature? Miranda has her own past with problems and family that drag her down. Can the two of them see beyond the passion to what they could hold in their hand? Both of the being hurt in the past has made them fear to trust.
A rich story with complex characters. I loved the way the characters seemed to be fated to come together. Good story and interesting start to the series. I am eagerly awaiting the next book!
