Merciless and driven, billionaire Anthony Bertram built his company from the ground-up, dedicating every waking moment to creating one of the most powerful corporations in the world.
The last thing he has time for is romance. He almost lost everything when his first marriage fell apart. Disillusioned from his divorce, Anthony knows from experience that love only makes you weak.
When a mix-up results in a woman showing up at his supposedly private cabin during his vacation, all of his plans are completely upended. This woman is just what he doesn’t need: beautiful, spirited, and so maddening that suddenly all Anthony wants is to make her his.
A free-spirited artist and activist, Thea Younger wants to leave the world a better place. When she arrives at the cabin she’s booked for a much-needed vacation and finds Anthony Bertram there—a man who represents everything she’s against—she refuses to let him intimidate her into leaving.
When bad weather forces the pair to stay in the cabin together for a week, though, Thea soon discovers that the man behind the mask is no heartless monster. Anthony is all flesh-and-blood man, and one whose kisses she can’t resist. Desire flames between them until they both surrender to exquisite temptation.
But as secrets loom over Thea, she must look inside her heart and find the courage to take a chance on love.

Opening up to love
This series has caught my attention. I loved the previous series that this was a spin off of. Its a standalone but it mixes up with previous books just enough to get glimpses of past books. Thea and Anthony are a weird match. I can’t see it. He’s from a company who tests on animals and she is protesting them. When they get stuck together they clash, but something else happens too. They each see different parts of themselves and each other. Can such passion for their lives move into passion for each other? Can they overcome such obstacles they hold dear? It took me awhile to get into the book but once i did it was good. Iris has always written books books I’ve loved this one was a bit hard to imagine for me though. I am so looking forward to the next brothers book, Phil. I love having series books. No worries no cliffhanger here. Enjoy!
The characters in this book were entirely unlikeable. I forced myself to read five chapters before I gave up. Life is too short for painful reading.
