Excerpt

Those fucking legs.

They were the first thing I noticed when I met Saige. Her legs go on for miles. I thought I was hiring a midwestern farm girl; however, she is anything but. She's been a bit of a mystery to me—all of her social media accounts are locked down, and no online photos. She’s almost as good at being as invisible as I am, except I paid someone a lot of money to keep me off the Internet. I hired her sight unseen and only because of her last name. Thankfully, her credentials matched exactly what I was looking for, which made it easier on me and less likely for HR to question my motives.

And then I met her. Her and her long dark hair and those fucking endless legs. She left me speechless. Everything about her was nothing I had expected. Tall and lean. Dark and fair. Kind and ambitious. Mysterious and perfect. Exquisite. She is perfection.

I stand outside Bar 51 and take a deep, cleansing breath. “What the fuck are you doing, Hamilton?” I run my hands through my hair. I cannot go out for drinks with her. I know I shouldn’t, but fuck if I could tell her no.

“Mr. Hamilton?” The sound of my name pulls me from my thoughts, and I turn around to find Saige and our other employees huddled together. “You waiting on someone?” Isaiah Gutierrez asks me. I look past him to see Saige standing arm in arm with Rowan Hansen.

“Uh, no. Was just getting some fresh air before I head home.” I turn my attention back to Isaiah. “You guys headed out?”

“Yeah, it’s that time.” He gives a short laugh. His eyes are bloodshot and glossy.

“Well, I hope you all enjoyed your evening,” I tell Isaiah, but I turn my attention back to Saige as I shrug my suit coat on.

The group of them begins to chat and laugh before they disperse. Saige gives me a small wave as she starts to walk away, her arm still looped through Rowan’s. Part of me wants to rip her away from him, and the other part of me is happy she’s found a friend that she can trust—a very gay friend, thankfully.

Rowan helps her keep her balance as they walk down the street, and I smile as she giggles. I catch her look over her shoulder at me one last time before they turn the corner and disappear, but not before I memorize the look of want in her eyes.


Review

Saige Phillips' life hasn't always been sunshine and roses. When she was younger, her family was forced to move from Chicago to North Dakota. It was a big change for Saige, but there would one more life changing moment that would forever change Saige's world. Now several years later, she's back in Chicago settling into her new job, living with her best friends and making new friends.

Little does she know, but she's caught the eye of one of the owners of Jackson-Hamilton Aviation. Holt Hamilton just wanted to help Saige out but one look at her and he was smitten. Everyone can see the way he looks at her, so one night while out with co-workers she gets dare to ask Mr. Hamilton out.

Who can say no to dare? Not Saige. Plus there is something about Holt that draws her to him.

A drink turns into dinner, dancing and more. Then one night turns into something more. But Holt is keeping a secret that could cause Saige to walk away. So when the truth comes out, how will Saige handle it? And can their relationship withstand the blow?

Oh my goodness, what a sexy and enchanting book. From the start, Rebecca captures the reader all the way until the end. Sure Holt is tall, dark, handsome, and somewhat mysterious, but his compassion and heart shine through this exterior. He is very protective, but not just of his family but his friends and employees. His past isn't all sunshine and roses, so that's why he is they way he is.

Saige is stronger than she gives herself credit for. Her past shaped her into the person she is, but she's trying to move on. Even with her demons, she moves back to the city that holds so many good memories for her and made some new friends. And when her world turns upside down, she stays true to herself and in the end, she'll take the dare to get what she wants.

I enjoyed this book and fell head over heals for Holt. I was enraptured by Rebecca's writing and can't wait to see what comes next with his series.
