Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.

Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her.

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

My Review:
This book was really good. Piper is a strong female who knows that she wants much more out of life. Tate is an asshole who is used to being catered to. When Piper applies for a job as Tate's assistant, she is warned that he is difficult. She took the job because she really needed the job and hoped that it would turn out ok. Everything she was told about Tate was true. He is pushy, demanding, difficult, and a jerk. He treats Piper like a servant and has no boundaries. He also is falling in love with her, but refuses to acknowledge it because he has been hurt before. Piper knows that there is sexual chemistry but she doesn't want to love him because he's so mean.

I had a hard time putting this book down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. If I hadn't had to go to bed and work the next day, I would have finished it in one day. I enjoyed the banter back and forth between Tate and Piper and I was cheering for her to not take his crap. She didn't. There wasn't anything about this book that I didn't like and I recommend that you check it out. 5 out of 5!!
