Nervous as a kitten whenever he comes near…

Toni George needs a job to clear the gambling debts her late husband secretly accrued. With tiny twin girls to feed, she has no choice but to accept a position with notorious heartbreaker Steel Landry. Steel is intrigued by and more than a little attracted to the beautiful Toni, though he knows that she is offlimits.

But she’s as nervous as a kitten whenever he is near – so maybe she isn’t as immune to his potent brand of masculinity as she’d like to be…?

Disappointing.

This somehow missed the spot for me, with a lack of any urgency. Steel seemed too good to be true but for some reason I just couldn't warm to him neither to Toni. About half way through I lost interest and struggled to finish it, putting it down and then coming back. However, I didn't dislike it either. 6 out of 10.

Witty

Funny, sweet and catching. A winning combination for a good book. Helen Brooks is becoming one of my favourites authors of the moment. Thank you.

Wrong Series

I think this book would have been better placed in another series - did not hit the mark for me as a 'Modern' title.
