Synopsis from Goodreads:
Unfortunately, to achieve her dreams, she must brave the star of the company; a charming and handsome salesman that isn’t used to the word no. Krista tries to run from him at every turn, but his pull continually sucks her back in; her hesitancy to trust the only thing saving her from being another notch on a bedpost.
Sean never has to try with women. He's the type of guy to jump in with both feet, get bored, and sprint right back out. But when a geeky new hire stumbles through the company, befuddling him with a keen intellect he doesn’t expect, he starts to lose his way. Before he knows it, all his efforts are concentrated around trying to capture the interest of the only woman to run when he tries to deliver a line. As she opens up, so does he, landing him in a terrain as disconcerting as it is invigorating.
I really appreciate the fact that I liked (or fell in love with) more than one character in this novel. Both the main and supporting cast were quite well developed, but remained true to themselves. Everyone was human and acted like a real person. It was quite intriguing to see the male lead trying to walk the line between the role he’s made for himself and who he really is. You get to know both sides of him and how they don’t always fit together so perfectly. You also feel for the female lead, both with what she’s been through in the past and what she’s facing now.
As a whole, this was a brilliant introduction into this series and to the author as well. I would recommend it to any who enjoy a bit of will-they-won’t-they budding romance immersed in reality.
