Elizabeth Carlson and Ben Harrison used to be friends, coworkers…and almost lovers. But that was before Ben proposed mixing business with pleasure. Elizabeth refuses to lose her heart to a hotshot tycoon with a cutthroat, take-no-prisoners attitude. Not with the prospect of starting her own company at stake.
Driven to succeed in all areas of his life, Ben couldn’t resist the temptation to make Liz his. But then she walked away, igniting a bitter rivalry. Competing for the same contract at a Caribbean conference ignites sparks too hot to ignore, and Ben’s determined to finish what they started, even if it’ll only last a few steamy, tropical nights.
Elizabeth’s resolve begins to crumble under Ben’s blatant seduction. Can she walk away from a hot island fling with the sexiest man she’s ever known with her heart intact, or will losing herself in Ben destroy everything she’s fought to achieve?
Beth and Ben were best friends until one year ago when he left for New York without giving news for the whole year. Before leaving, he asked her to come with him, but Beth is afraid and pushes him away. Both succeed in their respective companies and now it’s time for the grand show-down at a convention where they compete for the same investors. They have to learn to trust each other, not an easy task when your financial futures depends on keeping your secrets.
The story is well written and quick moving, an absolute recommended read!
