Blurb: Executive assistant Emma Taylor is desperate for a little time away; away from her job, her life and from thoughts of her boss’s son who doesn’t seem to know she even exists. Tired of waiting for the time to be right, she takes advantage of her boss’s generous offer for a little weekend getaway to thank her for helping out with a difficult business deal.
Former NFL superstar Lucas Montgomery is still suffering from a career-ending injury. His self-imposed exile from life is exactly what he wants; a sanctuary where there’s no chance for disappointment or distractions and that’s exactly the way he likes it. While his family has been patiently waiting for Lucas to come around and embrace life once again, they don’t realize that it wasn’t just his career that was lost, but his sense of identity.
Lucas thought everything was fine until sweet, sexy and completely off-limits Emma Taylor comes crashing into his carefully constructed world one snowy weekend and turns his entire life upside down.
Review: I couldn’t finish this. I think I’ve just had it with pushing through lack luster stories with uninteresting characters, but this just was annoying.
Emma is a melodramatic shrew with such a contradictory personality that the term bipolar could easily apply, so could multiple personalities. Lucas is a self absorbed, self pitying ass who has not one thing to recommend about him. Outside of some not so great characters, the story and set up was so contrived that I thought I was going to strain a muscle from all the eye rolling going on.
I was probably close to half way through this when I decided to just stop. If I was really that not into it, why torture myself by forcing myself to finish? It is something I do way too often and there are just too many books that I do want to try and read to waste time on something that just isn’t doing it for me, so down it went.
