I really liked this book and it is a keeper. It exhibits the dilemma of letting go of what you know and embracing the opportunity for love and happiness. It is very well written and constructed. The characters mature nicely throughout this book. You can easily visualize what you are reading.
The dialogue is easy to understand. There is a lot of tension and conflict between Lucas and Amy. Lucas’ father wanted his son to find happiness and love. Lucas wasn’t ready for any type of change in his life. Lucas liked living with no attachments and wanted to keep it that way, little did he know his father already had other plans. He knew he wanted grandchildren while he could still play with them. If that was going to happen he had to do something.
Amy is to be Lucas’ executive secretary. She had met his father at a college fair and was going to work at the family company now that she was done with college. She tries to fight her growing attraction to Lucas, but finds it harder than she thought it would be. Lucas is convinced that Amy is only after his money. He has had many women try to con him out of his money and he was determined not to let his guard down. They are both faced with the difficult task of avoiding a physical relationship, while being thrown together every time they turned around.
