One by one, Madaris men have surrendered to the matchmaking schemes of Felicia Laverne Madaris, matriarch of the family. But Lee Madaris isn't letting anyone else control his destiny. He'll bring a bride of his own choosing to the family's holiday gathering—if his hotel's gorgeous new chef will agree to a marriage of convenience.
It's not just the chance to work at the Strip's hottest hotel that brought Carly Briggs to Vegas. Witnessing a crime in Miami may have made her a mob target. Though she's reluctant to complicate their working relationship, Lee's tempting offer is so hard to resist. And soon, desire is clouding their no-strings arrangement.
The danger that made Carly flee Miami is about to land at their door. So Carly and Lee must decide who to trust, when to let go—and whether a love they never anticipated is strong enough to pass the ultimate test.
I’ve read one other Brenda Jackson book and I thought it was pretty blah. But I am definitely glad I gave another one of her books a chance. This was an excellent book and now I have to go back and read more. It’s only fair to appease the book hoarder side of me.
Lee is definitely a hottie that I was happy to discover. On top of being all around yummy, he had a lot more to add to the table. He is responsible, authoritative, and most importantly, caring. The man really is the whole package.
Poor Carly seems like she’s having a little trouble with a certain group of men who are up to no good. She moved from Miami to Las Vegas to get away and to have a fresh start. After what seemed like a too good to be true chance encounter with a sexy as hell man, Carly is shocked that that same man is the owner of the hotel! But you know what I liked most about Carly? When she found out about Lee, she wasn’t a gold digger and really respected and cared about him.
The plot was great and had a great flow. I have a few other Brenda Jackson reads in my TBR list. I think I’m going to have to carve out some time to read them if they are just as good as this one.
