While watching her brothers find their happily ever afters, Abbey dreams of falling in love. Smart, fun, and sexy, Abbey is also independent and works hard alongside her brother, Kyle. When Kyle joins his business ventures with his wife’s cousins, Jason and Damon, Abbey struggles with keeping things professional.

Jason is instantly enamored with Abbey, and he becomes determined to win her over. Although she does not want to mix business with pleasure, he uses his good looks and sweet charm to work his way into her heart. All the while, Abbey begins building a friendship with a neighborhood child, Pearl. Abbey’s heart warms to Pearl, and their friendship quickly blossoms into a loving relationship.

Can Abbey find a way balance her growing feelings for Jason and her need to take care of Pearl? Or will Abbey need to sacrifice one relationship for the sake of the other?

Just as I enjoyed the first three books in the series, I knew I would love this one as well. We have met the two characters in the previous books already. Abbey is Kyle’s sister, and Jason is Lily’s cousin. Meeting at the wedding, sparks had already flown between them. The chemistry and the sexual tension was off the charts – problem is that they were about to work together, and he will be her boss. So she needs to put a stop to whatever it is that she’s feeling and put on a professional front.

But Jason wants her, and is determined to have her. She may not mix business with pleasure – but he knows persuasion. With his good looks and his charms, and a whole lot of willpower, he knew he will have her. Perhaps, it will take a Harley Ride or eating the unedible food she cooks for him to get into her heart. Yay. But this sweet, sweet guy just knows how to crumble the walls that surrounds her heart. He knows the meaning of big gestures, and it really helps that he knows how to kiss.

Then there’s Pearl, the seven-year old kid who walked her way right into not just Abbey’s heart but to Jason as well. My heart goes out to this girl, and she had caught my attention. She needs all the love that she can get, and I’m so happy the couple is willing to share their time and attention with her. I wonder all the while what was happening in her life, why her mother or guardian is leaving her in the care of the neighbor most of the time. Hers was a sad tale, and you will have this big urge to go inside the book and give this girl a big hug.

As for Abbey and Jason – it was just amazing to watch them spend time together, and eventually fall for each other. As the story goes, I wonder what would come across these two since they seem to have a perfect relationship. They were so happy with each other when Abbey could no longer deny the attraction that was budding between them. They spend so much time together, and eventually gave a label to their relationship. Jason even spent time with Pearl. I had the feeling that the problem would somewhere rise from there – their relationship was just new, and fresh, can it withstand her need to take care of this girl, or will their new relationship needed to be sacrificed.

I enjoyed reading the fourth installment of the series, and I must say I can’t wait to read Damon’s story and for him to find his HEA as well. Alicia Rae once again wrote a sweet, sexy novel that had me hooked. I love how their love story progressed, it was an easy read but can still touch your hearts, you will fall in love with every character is this book and pin for each one of them.
