Love is the riskiest business of all
He’s the hot new guy in the small-town Wyoming office, a bachelor from L.A. with a trail of divorces behind him. But something about Blake Cobb has Sadie Felix setting her sites on him—even though he might just be her biggest competition in the race for a much-coveted promotion. Still, a little workplace rivalry will only make the tension between them more thrilling. At least, that’s what Sadie hopes, until she learns Blake’s already dating the boss’s daughter…

She’s an ambitious corporate climber with a face and a body that could stop a clock. Which is exactly why Blake steers clear of Sadie Felix—he’s been there, done that, with disastrous results. Besides, his new girlfriend is a dead ringer for his first love—the one who got away. But when an office scandal throws the boss’s daughter in a new—and unflattering—light, Blake’s forced to see what’s been right in front of him all along…

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
I have been waiting for this book ever since I read the first two and I was so incredibly happy when Ms. Smith sent it to me for review. Just like the first two books in this series, I was entertained from start to finish. The characters were so wonderfully done that I felt that I knew them on a deeper level. I loved that I got to know what they were thinking all the time; it helped to understand what Sadie and Blake were feeling and going through. Sadie cracks me up. She’s no damsel in distress; no Sadie Darling Felix is one hell of an independent woman who can look hot in heels and comfortable with a chainsaw. Blake Cobb is not your typical guy. He’s got flaws; he’s insecure and has a lot of baggage. If you’ve read the first book, Men Like This, then you’re familiar with Blake’s first wife Quinn. If not, please go and buy it…and while you’re at it, you need book two as well. Trust me. It was so thrilling to watch Blake grow and figure out just what it was he wanted. I loved the relationship between Blake and Sadie; it didn’t start out as a one night stand, but more of an accidental friendship that grew. There’s also a bit of a mystery in this story that I think added a whole new layer to the book and it was captivating. I had to know who did it and why. It’s not who I wanted it to be; I was so shocked.

Do yourself a favor and please read the first two books first. It’ll help you understand a lot of what Blake is dealing with internally, as well as entertain you. Please feel free to read my reviews on those as well.
