from the back cover:

She is tempted!
Tess Denison is tired of the good-girl routine... from now on, it's strictly "Tess the bad girl" or bust! Now that the uptight ad exec is determined to change, she's eyeing men in a totally different, non-Tess-like way. And since she's looking for gorgeous guys to be in her agency's hot new ad campaign for Loverboy cologne, she's thinking of keeping one for herself. In fact, there's a fine bod close by that she's already thinking of...

He is tempted!
Blake Sutherland senses that traveling across the country with his business partner, Tess, wil give him the opportunity he's been waiting for. He wants to get to know the woman. To explore her innermost fantasies...and his own. He'll even show her what it means to be a bad girl, if only she'll give him the chance...

But who will make the first move?

When Tess Denison's brother takes off, Tess is forced to take on a more "hands on role" in their advertising firm. This wouldn't be such a problem if not for the super sexy Blake Sutherland, the firms third partner. Despite her better judgement, Tess is attracted to Blake, and must now spend a great deal of time with him to keep a much needed account.

Blake loves his job, and he is good at it. He invested as a third in the firm because of his friendship with Jason Denison, Tess's brother. When Jason takes off, Blake is annoyed. Now he must work closely with Tess, his friends sister, who he considers too stuffy for her own good. Tess is also the "long-term" type of girl, and Blake is not ready for anything serious. Despite Tess not being his type, he is strangely attracted to her and her up-tight ways.

When the two hit the road to find models for the account they are working, sparks begin to fly. Tess is still unsure and wary of Blake as he is of her. Despite it all, when Tess decides a no strings affair is just what she needs, Blake is more than willing to be her fantasy man, as long as she understands he's not playing for keeps.

I would recommend this book to those who like the hero and heroine that battle their chemistry, give in and battle it again. The book is fairly even paced and a fun light read with a few sexy, well written scenes
