In FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE...
Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break--working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and--just maybe--explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.
Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.
Josh and Riley's friendship heats up. Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley's mentor accuses her of stealing the design.
Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry--and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

Josh and Riley
The Braden’s are an amazing family. Josh is tall dark handsome and successful. Riley is the girl from home who was adored from afar . Now they get their chance if the jealous Cruellas can just leave them alone. I am getting used to the narrator l. It took me awhile but I loved the story and I am finding that while not my favorite narrator he grows on you ;)
This is the first book I have read by this author. I was extremely pleased by her rich character development. Felt like I really knew everyone in the book. Quick and enjoyable read. Look forward to more of her books!
Love the Braden's
I really enjoyed reading the story of the gentler son, Josh. All of the Braden's from Weston, CO are amazing characters, so the world we go to in the series always provides an emotional ride with a happy ending.
