Miriam Ashley makes her living cleaning up bad boys. Mountain climber-turned-CEO Jason Sanders should be an easy fix. And with a nephew to care for, he’s motivated. The problem? Every time she tries to help Jason get his head in the boardroom, they end up in the bedroom.
What the hell is she thinking? He’s the definition of off-limits. Not just because he’s a client—he spends his free time risking his life mountain climbing. The same thing that got her father killed. She’s not going to open her heart to a guy who could disappear at the
drop of a…well, she’d rather not finish that thought.
She needs to leave complicated alone, but every time she sees Jason, something tells her it’s her who might fall…
I was looking forward to seeing Miriam fall in love ever since reading The Fix-Up (which I absolutely recommend reading). The story doesn’t disappoint, outdoorsy Jason and city-girl Miriam are the perfect combination. Now I want Ellie’s story, please!

“At least I have the good sense to keep my mouth shut in board meetings instead of peppering all my dialogue with profanity,” Miriam said.
“Keeping my mouth shut isn’t usually an option as CEO,” Jason pointed out. “I don’t suppose you’d care to give me some pointers on being a more polished professional?”
“What, you mean like etiquette lessons?”
“Sure, something like that.”
Miriam snorted. “We’ve known each other forty-eight hours, so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt for not realizing I’m the last person in the world who should be giving anyone etiquette lessons.”
“I beg to differ,” he said, his gaze sweeping her body in a way that made her shiver. “You’re the most put-together woman I’ve ever met.”
“Looks can be deceiving.”
“And you totally owned it in the board meeting.”
“Owning a team of suit-clad, tie-yanking executives is only slightly more challenging than owning a housecat.”
“I’ve met your cat. Considering he sexually assaulted me, that qualifies as a challenging pet.”
