What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love.
What a fun book! I was already invested in these characters from book 1 (thought this book can be read stand alone) so I was excited to read Dec's story.
Dec is the workaholic of the group. I was surprised to find out why he's a workaholic and it added to the reasons why he resisted his sexy assistant. This aspect of his personality wasn't revealed in the first book but it made him so much more real to me. Not a typical workaholic by any means, he really does already love his assistant. But he's just too used to the business relationship to let anything else in.
Enter fun loving and determined Brooke. She had a not so pleasant (heavy dose of sarcasm there) childhood yet she comes through it with a happy outlook. She started her bucket list at age 10 and she's working hard to make things happen. Number one on the list is marry the love of her life. Yeah, that could be hard when Dec won't let them outside the boss mode. But Brooke is an insistent thing and she has a way of talking him down. Loved her lots.
The story was just so enjoyable as you watch these two try to avoid what the other wants. Dec thinks things are fine the way they are. Brooke wants more...way more. They banter back and forth, keeping thing interesting and the pages flipping. And once that first kiss happens? Well, poor Dec just doesn't know how deep he's in it.
Great for character driven readers, this book is flat out entertaining.
