I really loved this story! Actually this is one boss falling in love with his business partner. They have such a strong attraction to each other but are both trying not to mix business with pleasure. However, as in life, when you fall in love with someone, it's not just the physical attraction but also the mental attraction you also have towards someone when they also stimulate your psyche. - A great read!
I love this book for so many reasons. Mainly though the characters, the family-centric plot, and the Houston setting are what truly sell this book to me.
Laura is an amazing woman. She's sassy, independent, impulsive, naive, insanely smart, creative. Just a real woman. I feel like so many woman I know, including myself, could really relate to her. Alec has almost a Mr. Darcy-esche attitude with his constant need for control and tight lipped emotions. His son Jason though and with his adorable personality, kind heart, and caring chivalry completely stole my heart though. I wanted to comfort the kid while reading this book!
Also, even though this was a romance novel the plot was so much more than that. It all boiled down to family. Laura and her loyalty to her struggling father and brother was heartwarming. Alec with the horrifying memories of his father and his complete lack of understanding of his amazing son tugged at my heartstrings. This book makes it a point to show the readers both sides of the tracks and how each can come to a happy ending.
Having the book set in my home town of Houston was actually pretty great to me. The author, being from a suburb outside the city did an amazing job of getting all the details right. It's so amazing to read a book that identifies a building at a certain intersection and realize I know exactly what building the author is referring too! Or recognize the name of the neighborhoods that the characters live in. How much easier can the author make it for readers to relate to the story when it is set in their own back yard.
All in all I am so glad I found this book again, and will definitely make sure to keep a hold of my copy this time!
