Piper Daniels leaves her hometown three days after being dumped in the hopes that a new city will bring a fresh start. Jackson Dane is the demanding boss of a real estate company whose intense demeanor burns through assistants quicker than he can hire them. He's seeking a no-strings-attached romp to blow off some steam and thinks "Fantasy Girl 29" may be the perfect solution. Prodded by pushy sister Hailey to set up a dating profile, Piper hardly expects her first match to end in the best sex of her life. Chemistry boils over, and the two wind up in an exquisitely naughty rendezvous on the rooftop of one of Jackson's new properties. But when she shows up for her exciting new job on Monday, Piper is horrified to see the best lover she's ever had is now her boss. When the two give in to their passion in a "colleagues by day, lovers by night" arrangement, who will be the first to change the terms? Though Piper may seem a bit exaggerated in her reclusiveness, especially compared to polar opposite Hailey, the sisters have a delightfully snappy rapport. Piper's social caution and residual hurt will prove relatable to readers, and her disbelief at the (admittedly unbelievable) coincidence of working for her one-night stand is amusing, as is her preternatural ability to organize uptight Jackson's hectic professional life. Ryan's (Tempting Little Tease) playful prose will have readers flying through the pages to see how Piper and Jackson's scorchingly sexy high jinks are resolved.
VERDICT Highly recommended for fans of the author and those seeking a sumptuous summer read.
