Born to Read Books -Cyndi
This was an easy read, perfect when snowed in on a winter night. William Montgomery watches people and he decides to play matchmaker with his youngest son, Lucas and his own personal assistant, Emma. He arranges for Emma to deliver some papers at his son's cabin in the mountains, not realizing that a snowstorm was coming nor that Emma would be hurt in an accident there. Lucas is licking his wounds after knee injuries that ended his football career.
Lucas finds Emma and brings her back to the cabin and realizes she may have a concussion. Since they are snowbound, he must take watch over her during the night. They have been attracted to each other at work, but nothing ever came of it. As he tends to her minor injuries, they get to know each other over the weekend.
It's a cute story, and there are no graphic love scenes, just plain old-fashioned man/woman tension. Sometimes the characters were a bit maddening. Lucas' pride gets in the way sometimes and Emma, so quiet and sane at work, gives in to her temper a time or too. She does give Lucas a different perspective on his injury. When Lucas accuses Emma of something, she ends up quitting her job and tries another career path.
While not a unique romance, it is a pleasant way to spend a few hours. This is the first book in a series, and you will meet Lucas' older brothers as well as his sweet parents. A solid little romance tale.
There’s no time like the present…
Executive assistant Emma Taylor is desperate for a little time away; away from her job, her life and from thoughts of her boss’s son who doesn’t seem to know she even exists. Tired of waiting for the time to be right, she takes advantage of her boss’s generous offer for a little weekend getaway to thank her for helping out with a difficult business deal.
Unless you’re still running from your past…
Former NFL superstar Lucas Montgomery is still suffering from a career-ending injury. His self-imposed exile from life is exactly what he wants; a sanctuary where there’s no chance for disappointment or distractions and that’s exactly the way he likes it. While his family has been patiently waiting for Lucas to come around and embrace life once again, they don’t realize that it wasn’t just his career that was lost, but his sense of identity.
…And afraid to hope for the future
Lucas thought everything was fine until sweet, sexy and completely off-limits Emma Taylor comes crashing into his carefully constructed world one snowy weekend and turns his entire life upside down.
Was Mother Nature really to blame or did someone else lend a hand?
