Publisher's Summary

Santa, you’ve gotta be kidding me.

One hot Xmas encounter in Jamaica has haunted me for an entire year.

But just when I was about to give up the search, guess who I see sitting at my secretary’s desk?

Forget about beaches and bikini, even in her boring suit, Hanna has me hooked.

But she’s so stubborn and proper, refusing me in every turn yet always teasing me with a glimmer of desire in her eyes.

Oh girl, you have no idea how much I enjoy a challenging conquest.

This is a steamy full-length novel with a happily ever after. No cliffhangers. No cheating.

A Second Chance Story

James and Hanna first met when they were on holiday in Jamaica last Christmas. They each gave false names and parted without having any way to reconnect. Although James did hire private investigators to try and find her he had no chance really because he was working with incorrect information.

He then works in London for a year before returning home to Boston. Hanna, as fate would have it, also lives in Boston and fate brings them together again when she is hired by H.R. as his secretary. Their connection is still strong and both would love to pursue a relationship but Hanna will not date her boss. Hanna is promoted to a job she is far more suited to and agrees to date James again.

I liked these two characters at the start of the story but I became a little frustrated with Hanna, she was basically a strong woman but she allowed herself to be plagued with doubts about her worthiness to date James, basically because he was rich! If he wanted her and she wanted him what was her problem? James on the other hand went out of his way to win Hanna over but when a stalker appeared on the scene he dropped her, he hurt her terribly but refused to tell her why he was behaving the way he did. That for me was his biggest mistake, I felt he should have told her everything.

The storyline was interesting and held my attention and the chemistry between James and Hanna was very well done. I have to admit I had no idea who the stalker was. I really liked the epilogue it rounded off the story nicely. The book was well performed by Marie Smith and at the end of the book I did wonder if Harper Lauren would be writing a story about either of James's brothers?

I was given this book as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Can Love Save Them

I read the book before I had the audio, I really like the story. James and Hannah have one night affair in paradise, leaving without knowing each other. Life has its trials for Hannah and when she finally thinks things are going better for her another bump in the road hits her. The one man she couldn't forget is now someone she could never have. Suspense and love, really good story. The narrator seems a bit dry, no real character changes, but we'll enough to still enjoy the story.

Roller Coaster of Emotions.

This book took me on a roller coaster of a ride. James and Hannah did not have it easy! There was drama, lust, danger, steam, and some scary situations. I would definitely recommend this book! It was a great listen, the narrator did amazing with the voices of the different characters. There were a few times that I was super frustrated with Hannah and James and wanted to shake them and just make them talk, but it was worth it in the end.

Tense

This story is tense and the heroine is the one always teetering on the edge with James. Hanna was always jumping to conclusions. The story is well written and the performance of the reading staid true to the characters. The word used at the end of this book however for their love is definitely not it. The story is good and will hold your attention from beginning to end.

Jack and Beth had great chemistry and were likable characters. While navigating office politics, social circles and people who don't want them together. What neither is prepared for is the roller coaster ride that becomes their relationship.Wonderful listen.
