When self-made billionaire Shane August hires recently divorced Crickitt Day as his personal assistant, little do either of them realize they are only a few steps away from happily-ever-after in the first entry in Lemmon’s Love in the Balance series. Shane is a down-to-earth billionaire who shies away from commitment because of his traumatic childhood, and Crickitt, after nine years of marriage to a man who dropped her without warning, isn’t ready to give matrimony another whirl. But as they work together, all the while denying their attraction and taking two steps forward and one step back in their personal relationship, they come to appreciate what they’ve found in each other. Meanwhile, Crickitt’s best friend, Sadie, has been dating Shane’s cousin Aiden, whose recent divorce is being kept secret from his ill mother, and Sadie seems to be as close to heartbreak as Crickitt does when Shane starts to back away. Lemmon’s glib writing style and worn plot make for a predictable but solidly escapist read. --Pat Henshaw
