Smart and sexy Victoria Langston is a successful attorney working and living in New York City. While at work one day, she receives a phone call from her cousin, Mel Saunders, who works at Taylor & Wit Literary Services in London. Mel asks if Tory could do her a favor. That favor being if Tory could help out Mel’s client, Aaron Cooper, who is a suspense and thriller writer, by answering some legal questions that will help him to mold his new main female character in his work in progress that will be set in New York. Although Tory’s schedule is tied up, she agrees to meet with Aaron anyway and answer any questions he has so he can write his new bestseller.
When he enters her office to meet her for the first time, neither is prepared for the attraction they feel toward each other. Tory reminds herself that Aaron is only staying in New York for two weeks, three at max, to get his book written. He lives in England and continually travels around the world to write his books. Obviously, she doesn’t want a meaningless fling to happen so her best bet is to keep things on a professional level. But, after deciding to go to dinner together the next evening to work on his legal questions, Aaron and Tory are in for the biggest surprise of their lives once they start to get to know each other.
What comes of their dinner together? Is Tory able to help Aaron with his book? How do they deal with the attraction they feel for each other? Are they both willing to work at a long distance relationship together or do they decide to cut their losses early on before anyone gets hurt?
I really enjoyed reading this story from Ms. Aherne. The storyline was fun and creative and her characters were easy to fall in love with. I immediately liked Tory because she was a down to earth person that just wasn’t certain what she was missing out of her life. She was likeable and easy to relate to on so many levels. I was also drawn to Aaron because he too was easy going and well traveled so falling in love with him wasn’t a hard task to accomplish. I had hoped from the very beginning they would act on their attraction to one another, but I understood their hesitancy due to their circumstances. Ms. Aherne grabbed me from the first page and held my attention the entire time. This was definitely a story that I couldn’t put down. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would highly recommend it. After getting a taste of how this talented author writes, I would love to read more from her in the near future. This is definitely one you shouldn’t pass up!
