Publisher's Summary

Always the optimist, TV assignment editor Allison Sullivan makes no excuses about the enthusiastic life she leads. As doors of opportunity present themselves, whether in her profession, in her love life, or her friendships, Allison is one to take the task on full speed ahead. But when Allison meets the man she's investigated in person, the world around her seems to pause as she fumbles to recover from the dynamic energy that clings from him to her. She's never felt desire forge so deeply within, and the chance at a clandestine meeting raises the stakes on an ensuing love affair.

Award-winning film director Lance Valentine isn't looking for love, but in the midst of filming a new motion picture, he meets Allison Sullivan in an impromptu dinner at the home he was raised in. At first sight, her beauty takes his breath away, and he finds himself unable to explain the flutter in his heart or the battle in his spirit at the crescent curve of her smile. Career driven and focused on building his empire, Lance has never taken a chance on anything other than his creativity. Until Allison.

While neither of them is looking for romance, they'll both soon find that an endless possibility of love is within their reach.

Contains mature themes.

Why?

I wanted to like this book but I couldn’t. Allison seemed like a very strong female lead in previous books but in this one she was lost. I just couldn’t like her at all. She placed the woe is me so much I was over her. also she was making everything a big deal ( jumping to conclusion before listening to the other side of story)

Not As Good As Books One And Two!!!

This book had potential but, somewhere along the way, it made a left turn on the wrong street and just imploded into ridiculousness. It’s disappointing because, I was really excited about Allison and Lance. The story line about Allison possibly being infertile was just silly. How do you break up with a man because, you can’t give him kids without actually knowing if you can’t have kids?!!! Not once did she go to her doctor and say, "My fertility; lets talk about it." So, her hysteria about having children just didn't make sense. And, that conversation with Allison and Mr. Valentine about her health issues was on a whole different level of silliness. Who talks about their health history with their boyfriend’s father when you’ve only met him a handful of times?!!! I’m no medical expert but, the way her so called “health issues” were described wouldn’t really impact her fertility one way or the other. But, with all the unprotected sex they were having, I was kind of expecting a surprised pregnancy at the end of the book. Oh, well! I had such high hopes for Allison but, she turned out to be annoying and very immature.

More of the Male voice

the only thing I'd say is that I wish the Male voice narrated more.

I love the love

I love the fact of black men with integrity, morals and intelligence; to have all that along with an amazing animalistic sex appeal is so intriguing and exciting. Thank you for showing our beautiful men in a different light!

Valentine men

I absolutely love these Valentine men. They know how to love a woman. What I like to call a man man. Gentle and kind yet they know how and when be aggressive. Great read.

Love Those Valentine's!!!

Book 3 is officially tied with book 1 as my favorites in the series, but Lance is by far my favorite brother. I loved everything about their relationship, the imperfect love that was made right. It was overall just a good feel good book that made me smile. It was also pretty hot and steamy which helped hold my attention. And as per usual, Wesleigh aandJakobi did an amazing job!
