Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch— good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with is precisely the one I need to stay far away from.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there's a hitch in my plans — she just hired my company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

I can follow my own guidelines. After all, it’s only a week-long trip with Mia and her employees over the trails and down the hills I guide them on. I can obey the rules—even if it’s hard in the woods.

I'm about to give myself a badge of honor when the storm of the century hits, sending everyone else running for cover, but us. It's my biggest temptation and me, alone for a long weekend. You don’t screw the client, especially when you’re already in love with her . . . 

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist?

Maria’s Review


➦If you are looking for a short, flirty and fun read with pretty unique characters then this is it! I don’t think I will forget a hot man walking a cat through the wilderness any time soon, nor the chapters told from the cat’s POV, which, by the way, were hilarious! 

➦This book is real low on angst, but sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered! 

➦Brother’s best friend trope is one of my favorites but this book didn’t really have that crazy overprotective brother who is on standby to cut the hero’s balls off. lol I really wouldn’t have mind that at all 😀

➦But… the sexual tension was high, and I’m always amazed at how Lauren Blakely is able to achieve that without in-depth character development and pretty short books. It’s sorcery! *giggle* Anyrandomwhatever, this is a a perfect, lighthearted weekend read that you will definitely devour!
