Literary agent Emily May is in danger of losing everything she's worked for - her job, her home, her friends, and the security she provides her older sister back in Singapore - all because she doesn't have a green card.
Racecar enthusiast, high-flying, fast-living Derian Winfield is called home when the only family member she still cares about falls ill. Forced into assuming a role in her father's dynasty she's spent years avoiding, Derian needs to rehabilitate her black sheep reputation in a hurry, or the agency will likely end up being lost in a takeover.
Together she and Emily take on Derian's father and his hatchet woman, and in the process Derian comes up with a plan to solve both their problems. Now she only needs to convince Emily to marry her - a perfectly reasonable solution to all their troubles, or so she thinks. She just hadn't counted on falling in love.

I knew I would love the story because it's Radclyffe. But, I was anticipating the argument or fight between the 2 characters. And when it happened I laughed. And after they made up, I was smiling the entire time not wanting to end. But, knew it would. Radclyffe is so predictable that you literally know which direction the story is heading and how it will end. And that is why I always give 4 stars instead of 5 for Radclyffe books. The story and performance is definitely a 5. Radclyffe needs to surprise us readers one day. And even put an epilogue. Not that this review will matter. As for the Narration, Abby Craden is one of my favorites. Love her voice and the tone she uses so you can make the distinction of each characters. I always look for Abby Craden Narrations. She is amazing!
I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
It all starts when the head of small family owned publishing house falls ill, the young girls who rush to be at her side out of love are her niece, a rich car drive in the European circuit, and her young prodigy a young girl who hand lost both parents, and was keeping her brain injured sister care paid for back in Singapore, where she just found out she had some green card problems. The two wait in the hospital generally caring about the fate of the woman and in the long hours they begin to bond. The bond just grows deeper as they fight to keep the company out of her evil uncle Martin's hands while the one woman's Aunt recovers . If they could say the word love to the other things might not get so confessed. Read the book or listen to it.
I want to listen to the whole thing again. Classic Rad, not that hollow, who the heck wrote this, shell writer we have seen too much of recently. I would have like more development of the peripheral stories, but I'm satisfied enough with the well fleshed out mains to call this one great!
The u-haul is offset by years of interactions, even if guarded. Cross-culture ethnically, the lovers have similar tragedies that has shaped them as well as loyalty where it counts. Great character development. I really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes publishing insights. Not at all sure how the woman in the cover art relates, but the story was great.
