Publisher's Summary

Recently divorced, Laura Baughman is taking her life back. After a decade away, she's returning to Yachats, Oregon - the small town she couldn't wait to leave after graduation - to take over her late mother's beloved flower shop. Yet once she arrives, Laura discovers the store has been neglected and her father has partnered in construction with Jake Lock. The once-scrawny high school band geek is now successful - and irresistibly sexy - and set to inherit her family's business. That is, unless Laura can prove in the next 30 days that she has what it takes to run the company.

Despite the heat between Jake and Laura, romance is out of the question. After her last disastrous relationship, Laura has sworn off men - especially one bent on crushing her dreams. That's just fine with Jake, who thinks the gorgeous blonde is a pain in the neck...though admittedly one he'd like to put his lips all over.

Jake has a proposal to mix business with pleasure. But when a deal goes south, Laura is ready to pack up and skip town all over again. Does he have what it takes to convince her to stay?

Silly and Degrading

In the first two chapters, Laura and Jake squabbled like they were in grade school rather than almost 30 year old adults.

In the third chapter, they started to have angry sex after bickering in public. Then Jake HIT Laura, who meekly submitted to being assaulted and I stopped listening.

It would be really helpful if the book's description included the warning: Promotes sexual abuse and degrading behavior toward women.
