Story Overview:
A sexy new standalone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?

My Review:
Okay, this book takes place at the same time as events were happening in the other books of the series so I felt like I knew a lot of the story. That's kind of fun in one instance, but I think it takes away some of the emotional impact of the story...especially when it comes to the team and their status in the playoffs which is playing heavily in the background of the story and the emotional turmoil for the characters. 

But anyway, beyond that, I am so happy for this story...finally Nate and Becca. After watching them dance around one another for a couple of books, it was fun to see what was actually happening with them. I love their history and that Becca worked for Nate long before he was successful and that the book started with when she was hired. It showed the scattered genius that Nate was and is...and gave their whole story an interesting depth. Becca is definitely not someone with him because he's the wealthy boy genius. Their relationship developed long before their was any success there at all. 

I love Nate...he's just so...not smooth. And that makes him just adorable, especially as he's gotten more attractive as he's aged...and truly has no clue. He figures most women are attracted to his money, not him...and that's just sad. I also really love their friendship. They've always been close just because they did everything together those first few years that Becca worked for him. 

The story was fun. I ADORED Nate's AI butler...and the interesting perspective that Stew added to the story. I also really love the whole team aspect...even if I know the story of what happens with the team from the other books. It was neat to get to see Becca's relationship with the team and Lauren from her perspective. 

Overall, I highly recommend this entire series. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but all the books tie together.
