Sylvie Gates, a rising interior designer in Atlanta, is no longer worrying about the past. Between her ex-boyfriend, whose cutting remarks she let slide for years, and her lazy former business partner, she is determined to move on. With the prestigious opportunity to redesign the corporate offices of Jordan Industries looming, Sylvie decides to celebrate with the hottest man at her best friend’s New Year’s Eve engagement party with no regrets. Erik Jordan’s takeover of his family’s cosmetics company is the right choice for the shareholders, but his parents are coldly furious. After reluctantly attending his brother’s holiday celebration, Erik is shocked when his one-night fling leaves without a word, only to see her taking measurements in his office a few weeks later. Could a model-hunting corporate Casanova finally surrender to a real relationship?
VERDICT Hodges (Strategic Seduction) breaks no new ground with the familiar plot of mixing work with pleasure, but readers looking for a soapy, melodramatic tale with familial drama and steamy love scenes will be satisfied.
