Book Summary:

Athena Haddad’s father and brother were killed a year ago. To cope with her loss, she threw herself into her health and wellness studio and helping her mom fight MS. Little does she realize how flat her life has become–until she meets Nixon Browning. The billionaire wants to expand his chain of health stores in her city, sparking a passion to defend her business and convince Nixon to leave San Francisco out of his plans. Education can be a powerful weapon and Athena sets out to teach Nixon about the city and its history while ignoring his inherent kindness, sharp intellect, and the warmth that spreads through her body when he touches her. In an unexpected turn of events, their tour to Alcatraz becomes a fight for their lives, forcing them to let go of their pride and work together. If they can survive The Rock, they may be able to bring life and color to the sparks of romance between them.


Loved Athena and Nixon and their wanderings around San Francisco! I have never been to San Francisco and it was fun to see it through these characters’ eyes! There was plenty of action and suspense. I enjoyed another glimpse into the lives of Nixon and his brothers. Plenty of surprises in this story too. I am now anxious to read Clay’s story! These fabulous guys are so fun together.


Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
