Book Summary:

The one passion they had in common was the one that would keep them apart.

Artist Sienna Sacchi is about to have everything she’s ever dreamed of, when sexy playboy Jack Montgomery comes strolling back into her life as the owner of her gallery. Her plan to buy it herself ruined, she refuses to let him interfere with the most important thing—her debut exhibition. But Jack’s not just taking over her workplace, he’s also intruding on her art studio, her home, and maybe even her heart.

Jack Montgomery has few rules for his carefree life, but never mixing business with pleasure is one he is determined to keep. He’d planned on finally satisfying the tension between him and Sienna, but discovering he’s her boss puts an immediate end to that. Unfortunately, being forced to share a tiny apartment with the gorgeous, tempting sculptor is pushing Jack to his limits. One brush with desire could ruin everything they’ve worked for.



This book is the second book in the Half Moon Bay Series but works well as a stand alone. I was over half way through this book before I realized I had met some of these characters before in Tangling with the CEO.

This was a fun read with great characters and a beautifully done ending.  I enjoyed the push and pull we see between Sienna and Jack who can’t figure out if they should be friends or enemies. While their personalities seem quite different it was fun to watch these opposites attract. We also saw that sometimes first impressions can be misleading and there might just be more to people than what appears on the surface.

I loved the small town setting and Jack’s swoon worthy grand gesture at the end made me happy.  This is adult romance and there is a little bit of content in this one but nothing overly graphic.
