She needs to protect her company from not only Michael but from Family, Inc. But what happens when her partner, Lily asks for Michael’s assistance during the negotiation talks? How can Sadonna work with the man who is still just as sweet, and caring…where will that leave her if she does fall for him again?
This is a sweet novel but not one of my favorites. Normally, I have issues putting down a book. I was able to easily walk away to do even the most mundane tasks such as laundry (I mean, yes, I need clean clothes…but I also love books! Priorities here people!!). I’m not sure if I want to read the next novel in the series. Honestly, I didn’t really like her partners at Quality Homes. But I did like Sadonna and Michael, even though sometimes Michael is a bit cold and off-putting. It was a little hard to see his perspective. He didn’t even share his thoughts very well with the reader!
