Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.
Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful
entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.
But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?
My Thoughts:While this is the second in a series, if you have not read the first book, Rumor Has It, do not let that detour you from reading this one. This can be read as a standalone novel. While Skye has had a more priviliedge upbringing being the mayor's daughter she still knows how to work hard and does just that as Landon's new assistant. She is also coming out out a horrible relationship with Vic.
Landon cannot believe his eyes when he walks into his office after vacation to discover the one girl who managed to say no to him at the bar the night before is none other than his new assistant. Figuring she is not going to make it since it this is her first job period, let alone just out of college, the torture would not last long. He quickly learns that Skye is smart, driven and a hard worker. Now, he is even more attracted to her!
The chemistry between Skye and Landon is hot--both are smart, hardworking and sexy people. When they give into their chemistry, it is off-the-scales hot. They suit each other like no other ever has before. I like the premise of the story but often times I just found myself questioning it a bit too much but not to where I had to put it down. Skye seems like a great person, someone I would want to have in my corner as a friend.
Now that both Ellie and Skye have had their stories, I will be curious to see what happens with Katie--the last of the three friends who have not met their match yet. Definitely check out Rumor Has It too for Ellie's story. :-)
