Adrienne Stewart, nee Philips, walks into a business meeting as the attorney of a small pharmaceutical looking for venture capital. Sloan Merchant, attorney of the investment company Foster McKenzie, has only been told her married name and is completely unprepared for the shock of seeing Adrienne who she ran away from at college.
Despite the ethical questions of getting involved the two women are drawn together and seem unable to resist the pull. But Adrienne is a widow and mother still dreaming of her wife and Sloan is a player who never spends the night. Despite the attraction they are worlds apart and neither is ready for the encounter.
This is another strong traditional romance from Ms Cannon, well written, the characters are people we can engage with and their angst is appropriate and understandable unlike so many over blown sagas. The combination of their legal responsibilities, past baggage and current situations makes for just enough tension to keep the expectation going. It’s also fun to revisit Lauren and Elliott from “Come and Get Me”.
As always the sex is hot and steamy, the emotions run high and the happy ever after is a foregone conclusion, but that doesn’t detract from a good book – and as always this was an enjoyable read.
