Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll do what it takes to protect their legacy—but what happens when love gets in the way?
Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately, though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be . . .
What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love . . .
To say I enjoyed this book would be a complete understatement. I absolutely adored this story!
Our story starts with Brooke and Declan working, but having to schedule an impromptu trip so Declan can assist his family with a few things. Brooke, being the amazing assistant, offers to go along. In the end, she ends up helping more than I think she ever anticipated.
The sexual tension in this story is done so well. It constantly simmers, might start to boil, then cool back down a bit. Declan is all business and watching him try to reign in his feelings for Brooke is seriously amusing to watch. Especially once they arrive to the family vineyard and his brothers come into play. Everything becomes immediately heightened.
It was really fascinating to see Brooke bringing Declan out of his professional side. As readers, we can truly see how conflicted he is over his feelings for Brooke. Declan is all business and even when he tries to not think in a logical, organized way, he goes back to it just out of habit.
Brooke’s character is probably one of my favorites. Yes, she drove me a little crazy at times but I really admired her. Not only was she fun and outgoing, she is incredibly smart. There is a scene in the story where the family is distracted by conflicting thoughts and they ask Brooke’s opinion on a business venture. When she turns into business mode, it was so impressive to see all of her ideas and thoughts come out. For me, that moment was the one where I really could see why Declan would be attracted to her.
This was my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read more from her. I enjoyed this story so much. It had depth, but also kept things light and fun while telling an amazing love story.
**The author, Candis Terry, also made a playlist that envisioned for this story and I’ll post her graphic below. When I saw this playlist, I had already finished the book and I felt it was pure perfection for the story.
