Michael McKenzie has been turned off of love since his deceased wife had multiple affairs. Work comes first and foremost for him; until Lily Redmond enters his life. Lily is out of work and out of love in her current relationship. Sadly, until she finds another job and can afford to leave, she’s stuck. Opportunity lands her at McKenzie Holdings, unbeknownst to her, working for Michael. From the moment these two meet, sparks fly. But as realization dawns on them that she’s his new assistant and he’s her new boss, not to mention she still has a boyfriend who she hasn’t exactly broken up with yet, can these two actually work out?
I really enjoyed Michael and Lily’s story. The instant chemistry between them was incredibly hot. Neither wanted or could stay away from the other, but with Lily still living with her boyfriend they couldn’t move forward. Don’t feel too bad for the boyfriend though. Their relationship was seriously over long before even Lily realized. I couldn’t wait for her to dump the douchebag so she could get on with her life…with Michael.
Michael was sweet and possessive. Thanks to his deceased wife he’s a bit damaged in the trust department. Even years after her death she’s still able to mind trip him. Something she set in motion years before may be the complete end of Michael and Lily. My eyes teared up and my heart fell to the pit of my stomach. Not going to spoil it for you, you have to read it to know what I’m talking about.
I’m looking forward to the next installment. This was a good start to a new series. The McKenzie brothers are hot and I cannot wait to get each of their stories.
I walked straight over to him and removed the beer before he noticed I was actually in the same room as him.
“Not you as well,” he grumbled.
“Doctor’s orders, as you well know.”
I sat down across from him and drank his beer, which caused him to scowl.
“That nurse is driving me crazy. I can’t have burger and fries. I can’t have a beer. If I smoked, then she’d probably tell me I couldn’t have a cigarette. She also told me I couldn’t have sex.”
I just looked at him. “Have you asked her if you can have sex?” I hooted with laughter when I saw the startled look on his face. He wouldn’t meet my eyes. I lowered the beer. “Please tell me you didn’t hit on your nurse?” I sat up and rested my elbows on my knees. “George?”
“Maybe a little bit.” He squirmed.
“How much is a little bit?”
“Okay, I asked her if I could have sex and she threw my salad at me. A perfectly good lunch, I tell you. Why would she do that? It wasn’t as though I was asking her to have sex with me. I just wanted to rattle her cage a little. It worked a bit too well.”
“I would say so.” I thought better of taking another drink. With how this conversation was shaping up, I’d probably spit it everywhere.
Lexi Buchanan was born in Bolton, Lancashire within the United Kingdom, where she lived up until 3 years ago when she moved to Ireland with her husband, 4 kids and a pack of animals. She can tell you it isn't pleasant traveling in a car with 5 cats in cat boxes in the back. Getting back into the car after the ferry journey to Ireland was the most unpleasant thing they had to do on moving day!!
If you were unemployed and had no where to go,
could you blame Lily for staying with her boyfriend as long as she did?
