Last night, he was a sexy stranger I couldn't get enough of.
Today, he's my new boss, who I can't seem to please.
Bad luck seems to follow me. Last night, I grabbed a drink at the bar near my new workplace.
I met the most sophisticated man when he “stole” my table. We bantered and danced, and I went home with a stranger for the first time in my life.
The next morning, I find out my hot one-night stand is my new boss. Gone is the playful, charming man from last night. Luke Maxwell is all business, acting as if our night together never happened.
He’s impossible to please, but I’m determined to succeed. This job is my chance to prove myself and put my past—and my ex—behind me. I’m not going to mess this up.
But then we go on a business trip together and end up stranded for the night. Instead of discussing our project, he kisses me in the elevator and throws a jealous fit, claiming I’m his.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who can’t forget our evening together after all.
This book represents everything I enjoy about Layla Hagen’s novels. It’s beautiful, sweet yet swoony, and entirely engrossing. The Maxwell brothers are the ultimate in book boyfriends, and I have loved all of their stories. This new one is Luke’s story, a workplace romance with Megan, whom I adore.
There is an immediate chemistry between them, even when it becomes a potential problem, especially for Megan. The journey to find balance and trust was beautiful to read. My favorite thing about their relationship, which I’ve found in all the Maxwell books, is that it doesn’t come fairytale easy. There are obstacles, difficult moments, insecurities, problems. I enjoy that back and forth because it feels real. Such a great read.
