She’s the hot new recruit at the most prestigious research institute in Germany, and she’s determined to live up to the hype — even if it means working day and night. Stress relief comes in the form of a no-nonsense affair with her neighbor, who also happens to be the director of the institute. Who says sex should be anything more than a contract between two people who have other things on their mind?
So when Tom Baker saunters into her life, Kate is understandably upset to see this well-oiled machine splutter and seize. Tom is young and smart, and far too pretty for his own good. Kate can’t help but be drawn to him, even if giving in to the attraction would mean risking everything she’s worked for.

This Book Nerd Says:
If you have been following my blog these last few months you've probably come to realize a few things about me.
- I love a really smart, independent, and accomplished female MC. I like when they don't play the typical "damsel in distress" or naive route. I like them to have layers that make me want to continue reading just to get to know them. And if they make me want to be friends with them... BONUS POINTS.
- I love a hot guy that's more than just a "hot guy". I won't disagree that a guy with abs is great, but a guy with brain to go with the brawn is downright hot.
- I like really intriguing secondary characters.
- I like a story that's outside of the box. There's countless stories about rock stars, athletes, fighters, & bad boys and sometimes you just want something that's fresh and unique.
I know it's mentioned that Kate has a secret "relationship" with her boss but please let me reassure you this is not a tangled weave of a love triangle.
The only thing I disliked about how Kate dealt with her relationship and her non-relationship was this:
Kate is an intelligent strong character and I only wished she would have taken more initiative (and been a little more assertive) in the confrontation between her and Rob (the boss). Oh Rob...
I don't want to say much about Rob because I don't like Rob. I say that with the fondest commendation for his stellar role as the book's bad guy. I did have some suspicions about him, but I'm happy to report that I was genuinely surprised by him and the story developments. And that's all I'll say about that.
On one last note...
At the end of reading I was very happily surprised to see a short sneak peek at the next book in the series. All throughout the story I was loving Tek and Margot... so I'm was pretty giddy to see Margot's name again.
The story is fun, hot, steamy, hot, witty, hot, and fun! (did I mention hot and fun?) It wasn't a heavy read and I enjoyed it on a quiet evening with a cup of tea... and a little ice water.
I am giving this book a solid 4 Stars!
I was very pleased I was asked to give this one a read!
