She’s in a long-term, committed relationship. With her business.
In three years Madeline Spencer has single-handedly grown her marketing agency, Grounded Marketing, into one of the country’s fastest growing companies. But her success has been at the expense of her social life, and her girlfriends have had enough. They’ll do whatever it takes, from speed dating to blind dates, to show her there’s more to life than work.
Only Maddy is having a hard time forgetting about her business. She’s about to pitch for her biggest client ever and the mysterious media mogul, Paul Neilsen, has volunteered to mentor her. Maddy might just be in with a shot of landing the account—if she can keep her mind on the job.
Working with Paul is not at all what she’d imagined, and Maddy finds herself torn between her ever increasing workload and her feelings for Paul. She’s discovering playing in the big league means making sacrifices…and Maddy must decide what she can’t live without.
I read the first book in this series and absolutely loved it. It was set in Sydney, Australia and I was able to visualise locations and feel the atmosphere in those locations. *You can read my review HERE: This second book is a wonderful addition to the series. In this one we meet a career oriented Madeleine, (Maddy to her friends) who has no interest in love. It’s all business for her…. that is, until Paul comes along. In a meeting that is supposed to an innocent work commitment, lives collide to bring these two together in an undeniable attraction. And the denying is certainly Yoda strong in these two!! I felt like they both really don’t think they deserve happiness and love, but you can see it through the pages they are so right for each other. Paul feels like he’s past his prime, and with two kids and a divorce, has made the choice that he’s not meant to be a family man… All things are not as they seem with Maddy…. a little bit of intrigue, heartache, and a surprise or two, this story a great contemporary read. This story is much more than a boardroom romance. It’s about love coming along when you least expect it.
Hey Paul…. I see you falling in love…
