Publisher's Summary

Being the assistant to uptight workaholic Brant Stone is more than Emma can bear. But in her weaker moments, she can't help but admit that the sexy control freak can turn her on with an insult more than any man she's ever met. So when Emma gains an unexpected advantage, she blackmails Brant into accompanying her to her high school reunion. After all, the enemy she knows is preferable to a blind date arranged by her meddling mother. But before they realize what's happening, they are doing more than acting the part... they're living it.

The war that has been raging between them shifts playing fields to the bedroom, as hate turns to lust and then to something so much more.

Contains mature themes.

Okay

This book was okay. I didn't like the start of the story. I thought Emma was very disrespectful to Brent in the beginning. He was her boss. I liked the book better after they got together. I thought Brent was too indecisive for a man. The book took a weird turn at the end. It was an okay read.

Absolutely Loved It!!!

I listened to this book and liked it so much that I went on to purchase the previous books in the series (I didn't like them as much as this one). The tension between the characters in this book was captivating and the intimate scenes were very hot!
