Katalina is the new intern at Blaine Technologies and Henley is the Head of Security. Before Katalina even knew who he was she spied him at the local coffee shop and was immediately smitten. He was just her physical type and she wanted him, oh so bad. But it was her first day in a new city at a new job trying to make a new start. When he disappeared with his coffee she hoped she’d see him there again. She had no idea how much she’d be seeing him and as his job was Head of Security she feels bad lying about who she really is.

Holy shit, this is going on my favorites list! My interest was caught from the very start and didn’t wane the entire time. I resented having to put it down to go cook dinner or do anything else for that matter. That tells me more than anything else about a book and this one delivers. It is not perfectly written. There are issues with repetition. I lost track of the number of times Kat refers to Henley as scarred and a behemoth and how scary he is to everyone except her. And the character development is very shallow, there’s not a whole lot of depth to these guys to really sink my teeth into. But this story just works for me. It’s more about Katalina dealing with her grief (and her avoidance of it) than anything else. She runs away from NY to LA and unexpectedly meets Henley, a man who is perfect for her. There is grief, yes, but there is plenty of humor and steamy sexiness, too. I love it. That is all.


  1. Oh yay! I read a serial set by her last year and enjoyed it. She's a very nice person it seems too. I'll have to add this to my list :)

    1. She's a new-to-me author and I'm definitely going to need to read more books by her. :D

  2. OOhh I need to give this one a try! Thanks for the heads up about it :)
