Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.
Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.
But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?
I really liked Skye when I met her in Rumor Has It and I was excited to read her story. I was a little surprised that she was so prim and proper (or seemed to be) because in the first book in the Limelight Series she came off as kinda being the opposite.
Either way, she was a great character and her story intrigued me. Of course, Mr Steele only added to this story’s hotness factor, and the sexual tension between these two characters has smoking. Their relationship started off with a bang – well, almost – but once the realization hit that they’d be working together things simmered down a bit, only to grow into something so much more than it might have been had they done any more the night they’d first met.
One thing that really stands out when reading Grace’s work is the positivity and strong message she delivers with each story. And of course I agree, no man (or for that matter woman) should ever lay a hand on their partner in violence. It is not acceptable.
This book wasn’t quite as exciting as the first book in this series, but I did enjoy watching Skye and Landon’s love blossom and bloom. They were both passionate about the things that really mattered to them and although certain occurrences could have been handled differently, I liked how real this couple felt. This was an enjoyable and entertaining read.
