Bad boy Neil Harrison may have sexy body and an even sexier smile, but there’s no way in hell architect Carson Kelly is falling for the elusive bachelor. For starters, he’s her boss, and getting intimately involved with the infuriating alpha male could be a career-killer. And secondly, he’s battling personal demons in one of the most dangerous ways possible: illegal street racing. After a friend’s tragic death years ago, Carson swore she’d never get involved in that life again.
Neil knows Carson’s keeping secrets and he’s determined to uncover all of them…even if he has to seduce them out of her. But as their antagonistic work relationship ignites a passionate affair, Carson must decide if protecting Neil from his need for speed is the perfect outlet for her own restless desire, or if they’re on a one-way path to destruction.
When I started reading this book the only thing from the previous that really stuck with me was how a very rich woman decided to raise and adopt four teenage boys and teach them to cook. They grew up and each one of them is sucessfull, but now she’s death and they are trying to manage without her, somehow they decided to live on the same city and reconnect. I barely remember the couple because I loved the plot, but somehow those two didn’t really made a great impact.
Now one thing I can say for sure is how much I loved this second book. Carson is the perfect girl and I loved her independency, but she has a problem with he father accepting her. I liked this because made her feel more human to me. Another thing that made a good impression was Neil and his brothers, they have such close relationship, but each of them still has a little room for privacy. The idea for this restaurant was really good too.
Somehow these made it work, but I don’t know why Neil still feels a little guilty over the past, when he was so young and had a lifetime to start over.
