Publisher's Summary

Born into wealth, Erica Stanford has followed in her family's successful footsteps and now runs her own upscale boutique in an affluent Washington, D.C., neighborhood. But despite her good fortune, she's still missing someone special to share her life with - until a chance encounter changes everything....

Handsome, rugged Jerome Kimbrough is hard to miss among the fellow citizens serving jury duty with Erica. And as the two get know each other over the course of a two week trial, their relationship soon extends beyond the courtroom and into a full-on passionate romance. Although they come from opposite worlds - Jerome is a working class, city sanitation employee - they’re both hard-working dreamers with big ambitions. Yet while their differences aren't an issue for them, their friends, family - and Erica's ex-fiancé - disagree. As all involved are forced to confront their hidden stereotypes, can Erica and Jerome endure the challenges in store for them - including a startling secret from their pasts?

Entertaining..

I liked this story which is a testament to "don't judge a book by it's cover". In other words, a woman shouldn't let a man's blue-collar job determine whether or not he is worthy of a date.

Good Read

A romance of two people from two different worlds, but they both compliment each other while bettering themselves. This was a good story.

Boring

The book was pretty predictable and didn't really get interesting until the last 45 minutes.

Really great story!

I absolutely in love! I really like the love story in this book, I like how she's very level headed and grown. The main character is my favorite even though her scary dreams was a little much I loved her overall.
