From the New York Times bestselling author of the Mastered Series and the Blacktop Cowboys® Series, the first in a brand new contemporary romance series . . .
The Lund name is synonymous with wealth and power in Minneapolis–St. Paul. But the four Lund siblings will each discover true love takes a course of its own. . . .
As the CFO of Lund Industries, Brady Lund is the poster child for responsibility. But eighty-hour work weeks leave him little time for a life. His brothers stage an intervention and drag him to a seedy nightclub . . . where he sees her: the buttoned-up blonde from the office who’s starred in his fantasies for months.
Lennox Greene is a woman with a rebellious past, which she conceals beneath her conservative clothes. She knows flirting with her boss during working hours is a bad idea. So when Brady shows up at her favorite dive bar and catches her cutting loose, she throws caution aside and dares him to do the same.
After sparks fly, Brady finds that keeping his hands off Lennox during office hours is harder than expected. Though she makes him feel alive for the first time in years, a part of him wonders if she’s just using him to get ahead. And Lennox must figure out whether Brady wants her for the accomplished woman she is—or the bad girl she was.
The first book in James's latest contemporary romance series may discourage even her most ardent fans from picking up the next. Twenty-eight-year-old tattooed and pierced Lennox Greene left home and an indifferent, narcissistic mother behind at the age of 15, and has been on her own ever since. Thirty-two-year-old straight-arrow Brady Lund is the much-loved scion of the wealthy Lund family, and the youngest CFO in the history of Lund Industries. Drawn to one another despite their differences, Lennox and Brady cautiously stumble around each other and the contrived roadblocks James throws in their way as their respective walls come tumbling down. But the absence of a believable threat to the couple's happy ending, as well as James's signature eroticism, makes this outing one of the author's weaker efforts. Trope-heavy and lacking erotic charge, Lennox and Brady's story just doesn't satisfy.
