I read this on my Kindle, and simply flew through the story! I love the relationship between Kelli and Grant and how they sizzle and get along with each other. Each time I flipped the page I was hoping for more and more and Syrie James delivered such a wonderful love story.
From the wintry setting of Tahoe, to the fabulous ad agency jobs, I was pulled in by the characters and their actions. I wish it could have been much longer so I could enjoy their relationship even more! Or have more books in the series! Would it be too much if I asked for an epilogue (haha)?
Honestly, Syrie James never disappoints me with her writing and novels, and they are continually pieces of work that I get pulled in to and feel so deeply for the characters. I root for them from the get-go and want them to succeed because they sound and act like real people!
I cannot wait to pick up the next novel by Syrie James and add it to my growing collection of her books and I also continue to look forward to reading more of her writing!
Grant Pembroke, owner of a San Francisco advertising company, is in Tahoe to land a big casino account. When Fate interrupts, not only does he become awed by Kelli's beauty and artistic talents but they both seem to have met one another's intellectual and creative match! So of course what intelligent, hot blooded man wouldn't think they should pair up and work together on winning this casino campaign?! Kelli struggles to remain professional; how can she resist him, let alone concentrate on the work at hand? "She said she didn't want this. She'd tried to resist. But she saw in his expression such heartfelt tenderness that it stripped away her defenses. She didn't want to think, only wanted to feel." As the deadline draws near, it seems they have fallen madly in-love. But is it love? Can it really be love after only a few days?
Although Syrie James wrote this novel in 1986, it is still timely. As she points out in the Author's Foreword: "In some ways, reading the book is like stepping back in time, to an era before computers and cell phones took over the world and changed the way we do everything. The basics of the creative process, however, remains the same, as do the joys we experience in a new relationship, on the road to falling in love." This poignant, steamy romance will have you believing there can be love at first sight--and like one of our hero says, "When you know, you know." I loved, loved, loved this perfectly crafted, lush, love story. Ideal read to curl up with these bleak winter days and escape! Let me be the first to petition for Syrie James to continue with this series-- the Harrison clan has at least four more sisters, parents and grandparents she could tell their stories!
In the second story our heroine, Kelli Harrison, (sister to the male protagonist in the first story) is in advertising. In an elevator, going to a meeting with a possible new account for a prospective new firm located in Lake Tahoe, she meets a man, Grant Pembroke. He persuades her to get him into the party she is going to because his "host" forgot to put his name on the list at the door. THEN while at the party she finds out he is after the same account for which she was to be interviewing. But she also overhears the owner of the business she was considering going to work for spreading malicious gossip about Grant's firm. So she takes the initiative and, without even an "if I may" steps in to contradict the rumors. Grant and Kelli strike sparks off each other but as two very creative and very independent advertising professionals can they reach any type of "compromise" when each is used to being in control in their own advertising worlds? As an aside Kelli is also trying to handle the final contracting on her brother's new vacation house near Lake Tahoe. And Grant's firm is located in San Francisco, while she works out of Seattle, usually. So imagine the pressures that, not only all these various working demands with deadlines but also of intense physical attraction, place on the couple. Kelli has recently ended employment with a firm which did not give recognition to her talents and had a romance end because her boyfriend had a controlling personality which did not sit well with Kelli.
