Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.
Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.
Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.
Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

Knight in shining armor!
Super hotness!! Parker was nicknamed “Switzerland” by his family because of his easygoing nature and for trying to keep the peace, middle child like. Parker loves to help others. A trip for business to Colorado and meeting Emily changed something inside of him. Emily is recovering from a bad relationship and dealing with grief. Her tryst with Parker has a built in time expiration, and she believes she is fine with that. Off the charts chemistry and seriously hot encounters are Carly Phillips trademarks. This story does not disappoint in the hotness factor. Dealing with the past and working through family dynamics are qualities of Carly’s books that draw you in and keep you reading.

Sweet & Sexy
Their past full of pain and regret are put to rest with their passion and love. A great romance for Parker and Emily!
Hard to put down!
You never know when starting a book what characters will draw you in. Why certain ones make you keep reading and getting more involved with their stories and others don’t keep your interest. There was something about Parker and Emily that kept me interested. Parker was a really nice guy, not a pushover, but was unselfish and who lost his direction. Emily had a lot of losses in a short amount of time and was unfairly overprotective of her father. Parker and Emily came together at the right time in their life, when they needed what each could give to the other. This was an easy read and was hard to put down. I’m looking forward to Ethan’s story.
