Reeve Nelson is determined to make it in Manhattan. He’s hardworking, dedicated and willing to put in the extra hours required to be successful at his new job at a prestigious real estate firm in the city. There’s no way he’s going back to small-town living and an ex-girlfriend who won’t let go. But his boss isn’t making it easy.
Leo Rodriguez enjoys his reputation as a ruthless businessman. He’s a lone wolf who’s scraped his way from the gutter to rebuild his life and launch a distinguished career on his terms. When an opportunity to expand in the market comes up, Leo wants the eager new agent with a sense of wonder on the project. But nothing goes quite as planned. Reeve expected to be intimidated and overwhelmed by Leo, however, the explosive mutual attraction and fierce desire between them is a big surprise. Neither man is looking for love and yet, something special just might happen if they can find their way…together.
I hate to say this but I think the only reason I made it through this whole story was due to the fact that it was under 100 pages. I love Lane Hayes and I want to say that this story really doesn’t showcase what an amazing author she is. This was my first book of Kindle Worlds Memories of the Breakfast Club series and I don’t know if even though these are standalone’s maybe I should have read them in order? Whatever it was, I just could not get into this story or find any sort of connection to these characters.
Reeve is just getting out of a relationship and is looking to start over. His new job however is challenging him beyond his comfort zone and he’s realizing that maybe it’s not for him.
Leo Rodriguez is a businessman to his core. He gives 150% and expects the same of his employees. He doesn’t expect to buttheads with his newest employee and he definitely isn’t prepared for the attraction that hits them both seemingly out of the blue.
I liked the whole boss/employee dynamic but it was short lived and Reeve’s temperament was all over the place. I could never really get a feel for him as a character. His reactions to things were so over the top I found myself rolling my eyes during a lot of his on page time.
Leo was most definitely the saving grace in this story for me. He was so sure of himself, of what he wanted, of his career and his plans and it didn’t hurt that he was smokin’ hot on page. He made the story bearable and was one of the biggest reason I didn’t hate it altogether.
Overall, this was just not for me.
