In Kristen Proby’s second novel in her Romancing Manhattan series, a playboy vows never to commit—until he meets the one woman he’s tempted to break his promise for.
Quinn Cavanaugh doesn’t do anything halfway. He drives fast, works hard, and plays even harder. And the word “commitment” doesn’t exist in his dictionary. He has no plans of settling down with one woman for he needs to be free to move on to the next big thing—whatever or whoever that may be. Each party knows the score going into it, and it’s all been working out fine. That is, until a sexy new colleague enters the scene.
Sienna Hendricks doesn’t give much thought to Quinn and the revolving door leading to his bedroom. She’s way too picky about who she shares her time or her body with and screwing around with a colleague isn’t part of her plan either. Quinn doesn’t intimidate her. And unlike most other members of her sex, she doesn’t melt into a puddle at his feet whenever he’s near. Most importantly, she has no issues telling him no.
But for a man who has the world at his feet, Quinn isn’t accustomed to being rejected. And he’s not about to let that change—no matter how persistent Sienna is. To his surprise, Sienna is everything he thought he’d never find. Pursuing her, and convincing her he's changed, is going to be the biggest challenge of his life. One he’s completely up for….
Proby's warmhearted second Romancing Manhattan contemporary (following All the Way) features two dedicated New York City attorneys trying to balance the needs of their families, their careers, and their growing love. Sienna Hendricks is mourning the death of her beloved grandfather, but she finds comfort in knowing part of his legacy will be the establishment of a public park in the Bronx on a piece of family-owned property. When Manhattan lawyer Quinn Cavanaugh interrupts the reading of the will to announce that his client is contesting ownership of the property, Sienna resolves to prove her grandfather's right to the land. Quinn is determined to protect his client's best interests, but he finds his attention shifting from the case to his new opposing counsel. When the judge orders Quinn and Sienna to work together on tracing the land's rightful owner, Sienna and Quinn find their mutual interest developing into an all-consuming passion, but a sudden twist in the case forces both of them to question where their devotion really lies. Though inconsistent plotting and heavy-handed dialogue prove distracting, there is still plenty of genuine chemistry and devotion between the protagonists. This is a satisfying series installment.
