Entrepreneur Libby Harris’s specialty is making her famous muesli. So when an Olympic hopeful invites her to his flat to make her delicious cereal, she’s bewildered when his brother Jack walks in, accusing her of trying to ruin his brother’s career. Libby has every intention of staying single, but with Jack around, no way can she suppress the personal pleasure she’s long denied herself.
Investment banker extraordinaire Jack Barnes’s attraction to Libby is instantaneous, but he’s raised his two siblings after their parents died in an accident, and it’s been all work and no play for as long as he can remember. He can’t let down his guard now—not when his brother is so close to the gold. But keeping Libby busy and out of his brother’s life challenges every ounce of his self-control.
Neither wants a relationship, and though they can’t deny their incredible chemistry, Libby and Jack agree that what they have is temporary. So when things start to sizzle between them, will they be able to take the heat?
This was a fun read. I really liked the chemistry between Jack and Libby. It was scorching. They couldn’t deny it if they wanted too. The misunderstanding at the beginning of the book was hilarious as well. And meddling siblings are one of my favorites. I really liked how the two met all over some health food cereal. I find it very creative that the author came up with something like that.
Libby’s mom died when she was young. Her dad died of a heart attack two months later. With bother her parents dying very young, she is scared to get attached to anyone or to let anyone love her. She doesn’t want to abandon someone like she was. Once she realizes she still has to live and love, the story ends beautifully.
