Publisher's Summary

He's all business and she's got a lot to prove. Love was not on the agenda.  

Jill Harris is determined to prove she deserves her position at her father's consulting firm, so the last thing she has time for is dating. Since her only experience with love ended in heartbreak, she isn't tempted to break her own rule - until she meets Blake McDaniel. When she's asked to take a job working with Blake, it's a great step in her career, but the more time she spends around the attractive, determined billionaire, the harder it is to remember why she wants to stay single.  

Blake has one rule for himself when it comes to relationships: He won't date a woman who's already married to her career. After watching his mother's many failed marriages, he knows it just won't work. But then Jill comes into his life, brilliant and capable...and entirely too fascinating. Even though he has no intention of falling for her, he just can't seem to stay away. But when suspicion clouds their future, will he be able to follow his heart?

WHAT IT'S ABOUT
ill Harris is determined to prove she deserves her position at her father’s consulting firm, so the last thing she has time for is dating. Since her only experience with love ended in heartbreak, she isn’t tempted to break her own rule—until she meets Blake McDaniel. When she’s asked to take a job working with Blake, it’s a great step in her career, but the more time she spends around the attractive, determined billionaire, the harder it is to remember why she wants to stay single.

Blake has one rule for himself when it comes to relationships: He won’t date a woman who’s already married to her career. After watching his mother’s many failed marriages, he knows it just won’t work. But then Jill comes into his life, brilliant and capable…and entirely too fascinating. Even though he has no intention of falling for her, he just can’t seem to stay away. But when suspicion clouds their future, will he be able to follow his heart?

MY TAKE
This is my second Pennington billionaire romance, and I loved it. It was the first audiobook I listened to and Nancy Peterson did a fabulous job.

I liked Blake right away and really enjoyed how capable and determined Jill was. Their interchanges were interesting and the sparks really flew, both from attraction and misunderstanding as they got to know each other. The storyline developed well.

I won't spoil it but Jill withheld (unnecessarily) something that led to a huge rift between them. It was almost a "too stupid to live" moment for me. And then there was a betrayal that happened that was forgiven a little too readily for me to be completely satisfied since it could have created a huge trust issue. But and the resolution was a happy one, and I liked the characters enough to make up for it.

Read this book first, and the Audible presentation was better

When I read this book, it felt rushed at the end. The audible presentation was better. I enjoyed both. Jill and Blake’s mistakes at the end still seemed out of character at the end but the Audible presentation flowed well with a good performance.
