Annie Mitchell knew when she was hired to be a caretaker the offer was too good to be true. With the promise of a lot of money doing a job she is uniquely skilled for, she was planning on the amount she would be able to save to help secure herself a better future. But upon meeting her new boss, her dreams of an easier life implode.
Ian Douglas is furious with his father for hiring someone to work at the house… and even more furious with how attracted he is to her. Being a master of surliness, he sees no problem with keeping her at arms length… even if it's the last thing he wants to do.
When the optimist battles the angry and broken cynic, one sexy agreement will change everything…
I loved this book! Annie, despite taking care of everyone in her life, is an open and caring person. She doesn't try to fix Ian and she isn't put off by his bad attitude. Ian recognizes his attraction to Annie and does everything he can to keep himself closed off around her. But when he finds himself opening up to her, he starts to want to be whole again.
The storyline is fast moving, entertaining and kept me engrossed throughout. The characters were incredibly well written and realistic. This was my first book by the author, and as the fourth in a series I never once felt like I was missing out on the story from not having read the previous books.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
