Winning Her Over by Alexa Rowan

Massage therapist Brenna Nakamura is struggling to keep her small business afloat, and she has no time for dating. Besides, the only guys she meets are her clients, and they’re off-limits. But her newest client—a devastatingly gorgeous attorney who’s in Boston for a two-week trial—tempts her to break some of her rules.

After eight years of nights and weekends chained to his desk, Calvin Wilcox, Jr. is up for partner at his prestigious law firm. But even if Cal kicks ass at his next trial, partnership isn’t guaranteed. Some of his colleagues are sticklers for propriety, and getting entangled with a sweet, sexy masseuse is a distraction he can’t afford.

But their best intentions soon unravel. Will they risk their dreams to follow their hearts? The jury’s still out.

Winning Her Over is the first book in Golden Heart® award winner Alexa Rowan’s BigLaw Romance series, where smart, ambitious heroes and heroines struggle with realistic conflicts as they seek love, success, and that elusive work-life balance. This steamy standalone romance novel includes long-distance not-quite-friends with benefits, two hungry people sharing an orgasmically delicious pizza, some scorching-hot sex scenes, and NO cliffhangers.

Brenna Nakamura is a massage therapist trying to keep her business a float. She doesn't want to go back to her boring life as a management consultant. When she arrives at the local hotel that uses her services regularly, she thinks this is going to be another middle-aged man. But when the door opens, she is met with a man that leaves her speechless. She has to be professional because her clients are off limits. So she pushes forward to get the job done.

Calvin Wilcox, Jr. works for a prestigious law firm out of D.C., where he is up for partner. He is in Boston for two weeks for a trial. And the stress shows all over his body. So when his boss offers to pay for a massage, Cal can't say now. What he didn't expect was the sexy little masseuse that showed up at his door.

While they are attracted to each other, Brenna can't let her feelings get in the way of her business. And Cal can't let his peers know about her business. He is not ashamed of her work per se, he doesn't want anything to get in the way of his promotion. When he accidentally voices this, Brenna ends their friends-with-benefits. Which leaves them both heartbroken. Can Cal make things right or will they both lose what could be the best thing for them both?

This is a great debut story from Alexa Rowan and I can't wait for more from her. I want to see where she takes Cal and Brenna, and maybe their friends too.

This is a sweet and enjoyable read. You know when you just want something light and sexy, without too much angst? Well this would definitely hit the spot. It has some lovely humour, some very thoughtful moments, and plenty of sexiness. Cal has some growing up to do, law firm partner material or not. Brenna has veered away from a preset path and it has already cost her one relationship, so she is not keen to have history repeat itself. In this well written story, it is easy to just keep turning the pages to find out just how Ms. Rowan can make things work – something she does with style.

An attorney by day, Alexa Rowan squeezes in as much writing time as she can for her steamy, intelligent contemporary and paranormal romances. Winning Her Over, winner of the 2015 Golden Heart® award for Best Short Contemporary Romance, is the first book in Alexa’s sizzlinghot BigLaw Romance series, which portrays smart, ambitious heroes and heroines struggling with realistic conflicts as they seek love, success, and that elusive worklife balance.

Alexa lives in a leafy New England suburb with her husband, two energetic children, five backyard chickens, a dumb but adorable cairn terrier, and a female leopard gecko named Fred. She also enjoys hiking and is an avid romance reader.
