My Fairy Godmother had a wicked sense of humor, of that I was certain.
The first time I met Jackson Hart, I was on all fours with my ass in the air.
At the time of our meet not so cute, I didn’t know that the handsome man with the most captivating blue eyes was the wealthy, charismatic, and hot as sin hotelier, oh and my new boss.
Well, technically he is my boss's boss. Just skimming the company manual was maybe not the best idea.
But, I digress. Working at Hart Hotels & Spa was a temporary plan.
Now, that plan has changed. Jackson Hart not only wanted me in his bed and in his life, he wanted me working alongside him.
Some offers are too good to pass up.
Premium scotch aged to perfection, making money before sunrise, nine holes of golf and interesting conversation. Those are the things most known about me. Toss in a leggy brunette or a stunning redhead at a society event for good measure and there’s a story to amuse the public. But, my story goes deeper—to the past that I left behind.
Sooner or later past and present collide. I never dreamed Stevie Brockman would be part of both.

*** 3½ Star Review ***
Listen, I teetered with the book. On one hand, it's a fantastic story. On the other, well, I had a couple of issues. Read on for my thoughts...
The story over all is fantastic. I devoured it. Who doesn't love a boss/employee romance. That whole forbidden fruit fantasy is always a treat to read. From their first meet, to their first "date", to the rollercoaster this book takes you on, I really enjoyed this story from the start.
Where it all went a little sideways for me was the characters. Usually, if I don't like the characters, I have a hard time with the overall book. Fortunately for me, the characters didn't completely ruin it for me. I did not like Stevie. Not. At. All. Even for her age, she was immature and all over the place. She gave me whiplash with her flip-flopping personality. I kind of liked Jackson. I didn't dislike him. I just felt for his age, there were times where he seemed to be a little too immature himself.
Even without my seal of approval on the characters separately, they worked together. Things do fall in place. The world is righted, even in the ups and downs these characters have. Their relationship eventually won me over. I just think I would have loved this book had Stevie's character had a better hold on who she is.
