|Samantha Bennett certainly needs the job she's rushing to give a presentation for so she can win a heritage protection contract. But when her competition is a man that once broke her heart after they had a summer fling, Sam finds it's not going to be so easy for her to win. Not when the man in question is so good at his job.
Dean Malloy can't believe his eyes. The woman that he'd once had a summer fling with is his competition to win a heritage protection contract that his father's company is offering. However, no matter how good she is at her job he certainly figures he can do better. But the thing is, once he gets close to her again sparks fly which could put a spanner in the works for his plan of winning.
Having been my first read from this author, the plot of this book was certainly enjoyable. It had everything an avid romance reader could hope for with plenty of romance and anticipation of who would win the contract they were both competing for as well as how their relationship would end up after their summer fling ended so badly. At least from their heroine's point of view. As for the dialogue, it was pretty intense at times between Sam and Dean as they were not only competing against each other to win the contract but were also trying to sort out their feelings for each other after meeting again five years after their summer fling ended in disaster. The sex scenes were steamy, and proved that these two still had a powerful attraction so many years later. What I liked so much about the heroine was her commitment to her job and that she wasn't going to let Dean get the better of her. While with Dean, I liked that the hero pushed past Samantha's indifference towards him in the beginning after everything that had happened between them previously. Since there was no couple more right for each other than these two.
Overall, I am thrilled to have been able to read this story and I would recommend it to those who love a hero who will do anything to win back the woman he loves. Even if it took him five long years to realise just what he felt for the heroine was love.
