Michelle Drake manages everything and everyone to perfection. Everyone except herself. When it lands her in the hospital, she has no choice but to follow doctor's order: decompress. When her best friend helps her "runaway from home", her only plan is to chill out and enjoy her long overdue time off. But an unexpected visitor on her doorstep and her sexy as sin neighbor shake up those plans.
Those stony glares and razor sharp tongue of hers may intimidate other men, but Lucas LeRoux is unfazed by them. He knows beneath that tough exterior there's a softness, like the curves of her body he felt when she accidentally landed in his arms. He's determined to make her his and he's just the man for the task of tearing down the walls she's built up and get her to finally let her hair down and enjoy life, not just manage it all of the time.
We all know Michelle as being a workaholic, but even a workaholic needs a break. This break she gets comes with a really fine neighbor who needs to enjoy the wonders of life himself, so they attempt to do it together.
Sparks fly when Lucas LeRoux and Michelle Drake meet again (must read the book to see why I said again.)The chemistry between these two is fire. You don’t know if one or the other is just going to say forget it and walk away. We’ve gotten a glimpse of Michelle in other books but this one allows you to see why she is the way she is.
Lucas sees something in Michelle that she doesn’t see in herself, so he works hard to pull it out of her. Sometimes we just have to get out our own way. Beau is that tiny piece of the puzzle that just makes everything right.
I was waiting on Michelle’s story and Te did her justice. Made me realize that I need to slow down a little myself. Now, will Ciara get her own story? I’m sure we can find some character from a previous book to hook her up with.
