Hannah's emotions are in turmoil; about what, we don't know right away. But it's clear that this usually well put-together, intelligent, and successful woman is not herself. She shows up unannounced at her brother, Aidan's sprawling work complex. That wouldn't be unusual except they are outside Portland, OR and she lives in Florida. Her brother's best friend and partner, James, sees her first. James is an adrenaline junkie and lives his life to the fullest. This has always irked Hannah because she plays everything safely, planning and double-checking every detail. It's what has made her very successful at her high-stress job. James and Hannah usually trade snarky, sarcastic barbs back and forth. They are always antagonistic, but never hit too close to the bone. This time is different - Hannah makes things a little too personal. James is upset that she apparently sees him as an over-grown kid, just with fancier, more expensive toys. But James can also tell something is wrong with Hannah this time. Secretly, she knows it is because of one kiss they shared last Labor Day weekend. That kiss rattled her. After that same kiss, James would love to take things further with Hannah, but one thing is stopping him - the bro code. Hannah is his best friend's younger sister.
Hannah is all over the place - having a mid-life crisis a couple decades early. She knows it is making her behave crazily, but she can't help it. Ever since that one kiss, she can't tell what is right-side-up or upside-down. She hates feeling out of control, especially where James is concerned. She wants him, but thinks she would be just another conquest - exciting to James because he knows her brother/his business partner would never approve. And as much as she wants him, she doesn't want to be just another number.
James is cocky, sex on a stick, and, other than work, doesn't take much too seriously. But he is concerned about Hannah; we glimpse his softer side - which apparently has always had a big soft spot for Hannah. He's frustrated by her refusal to confide in him. And he's perturbed by feelings he can't let go of, despite Aidan's warning to stay away from his sister.
Hannah's and James's chemistry leaps off the page. They are so hot together. Their back and forth banter is quick and stings like the tip of a whip. Their wit only makes the tension between them tauter. I wish I could say more about the other character, but other than Aidan, we only catch a glimpse. As for the storyline, it goes exactly where you think it will. A bit cliche, but thankfully it is well written. By the end, Hannah is returned to her usual self - strong, confident, competent - which is nice to see. James is still as sexy as ever, maybe even more so, if that's possible.
Overall, I really liked this book. As I said at the beginning, I just wish it was longer. I would love to see what this relatively new author could do with a fully fleshed out story. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on her. (I received an Advanced Reader Copy ebook, and this is my voluntary, honest review.)
I love the way this is written. It’s a little comedy, a lot of laughter, sarcastic banter back-and-forth, but you can tell that’s all just foreplay waiting for the final act. I really enjoyed this book. Hannah comes to terms with her job and her fiancé, and realizes that her future is with James. I loved it.
