M/F/M Romance

Talia is finally in a place where she feels that she can go home, proud of what she does. She seems to have a complex about her family. However, she also has this incredible attraction to her partners, Drake and Fletcher.

Drake and Fletcher are attracted to Talia and want more than just their business deal. She is smart, funny, and sexy and both know that they will never be more complete without her.

At the conference where they have launched their own line, the attraction comes to a head. Their chemistry is pretty high, but this is an insta-love story that just was too quick. The development was lacking – there was an incident in a hotel restaurant and, despite the explanation, it was all too quickly covered in sexual attraction.

Overall, while the sexual chemistry was hot, the story was not very developed.

This is part of a series, and a prequel to the next novel – it is a hot introduction to Talia, Drake, and Fletcher's future. Set over a few days at an exhibition for their new range of products, we get a lot of angst from Talia about even thinking about these two men. She has heard their reputation for sharing a woman, and now they are spending a few days together away from the office.

There were for me some things which rather detracted from the story – because they seemed obvious and yet she didn't think of them... would she really not know where she was going to be staying, for example? We do spend a lot of time with her inner monologue – and if she had been so conditioned by her family and her ex, then why would she put herself in that position anyway? I have a feeling that I like my female characters with more backbone, or at least consistency.

It was a quick, easy read and did a good job of portraying the uncertainty of someone tempted by a work romance, but also not keen on ruining their career.

Angel Payne

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama and French kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Various entertainment industry gigs and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most—creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue).

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soulmate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
