In NO DENYING YOU the pages practically sizzle from the sexual tension between the two main characters. But don’t think this is your run of the mill romance novel. Sydney Landon doesn’t do conventional. She does sexy, intelligent and heartwarming. All her characters bring something to the table in this story about corporate relationships and we aren’t talking about board room negotiations – more like bedroom negotiations.
The attraction between these two very different characters is palatable. Strait laced and seemingly very up tight Brant Stone is determined to be in control. It’s how he maintains a hold on his passionate side avoiding anything remotely resembling a relationship.
Emma and Brant have been sparring since the first day of her job as his assistant. It’s Emma’s mission to get a rise out of her placid boss and she has mastered some really amazing moves. There are times you almost feel sorry for Brant.
Here’s a very successful businessman – part of the Danvers Corporation who falls prey to Emma’s “snarky” comments and devious plots to undermine his authority. They say opposites attract well these two are certainly opposites – or are they?
Brant hasn’t been close to any woman in a long while by choice and yet he finds himself at times pleasantly distracted by Emma.
Emma knows Brant is way out of her league and she has never been much of a risk taker – basically runs from anything that could bruise her heart.
What I really love about Sydney Landon is she avoids predictability. Page by page you are drawn into a complicated maze of conditions that don’t necessarily lead to a predictable ending. Landon lets her characters have flaws and at the same time gives them honor, courage and brains. Yes they actually have the capacity to avoid dismal pitfalls.
NO DENYING YOU is a continuation of the Danvers series but if you are just entering into Landon’s imaginative corporate world you will be just fine. It’s nice to catch up with some old friends and candidly leaves you waiting for the next installment – anxious to see how the other characters fare.
Please check out NO DENYING YOU by Sydney Landon – you will not be disappointed. With NO DENYING YOU Landon is sure to garner many more devoted fans.
After Emma Davis’s first week at Danvers International, she’s convinced her boss will drive her crazy?
Being the assistant to uptight workaholic Brant Stone is more than Emma can bear. But in her weaker moments, she can’t help but admit that the sexy control freak can turn her on with an insult more than any man she’s ever met...
So when Emma gains an unexpected advantage, she blackmails Brant into accompanying her to her high school reunion. After all, the enemy she knows is preferable to a blind date arranged by her meddling mother.
But before they realize what’s happening, they are doing more than acting the part?they’re living it. The war that has been raging between them shifts playing fields to the bedroom, as hate turns to lust and then to something so much more
