Synopsis: (from Goodreads)
To resist the perfect man, please follow these simple rules:

Step 1: Never make eye contact.
Step 2: Never smile at him.
Step 3: Never agree to anything he suggests.

Or better yet, just follow Lenna Davenport's example and give in to temptation, sparking a whole tangle of passion, forbidden romance, mounting secrets and deceit. She meets her prince charming at her father's company Christmas party. Problem is he happens to be her dad's new boss. Worse problem is, her dad totally hates him.

But what Daddy doesn't know...

Braxton Farris takes over Farris Industries out of family obligation and expects his new employees might resent his youth and inexperience. What he doesn't anticipate is the level of contempt Tom Davenport carries for him. Nor does he count on falling for Tom's daughter. When he and Lenna start a secret affair, a disaster of corporate proportions is bound to follow. But to be together, they must decide if the fallout is worth it.
My Thoughts:
I’m normally not a fan of romances where the characters fall into bed straightaway, but Linda Kage has a perfect way of showing the deeper connection between her characters. I liked how after the instant physical attraction between Lenna and Braxton there was also an emotional, or at least academic, attraction, with the characters finding each other interesting and wanting to know more. The chemistry between Lenna and Braxton was off the charts, and they had such a great rapport that I couldn’t help but root for them.

I did find Lenna’s father to be a bit of a stretch as a character, with what he does to sabotage this relationship. It’s difficult to believe that he would value his pride and assumptions over his daughter's happiness. However his past actions and thoughts toward Braxton do make the situation believable enough, so it was something I could overlook.

Basically this is a story about a really sweet couple, who I could see having a real future. Linda Kage has an easy, fun writing style, and I’m excited for my next read by her.

The Cover:
Not my personal fave, but I like that it fits in with the hot NA covers -- it will catch people's attention, for sure.
