Gregory Thomas has always had an easy life. When it came to his profession, he excelled, gaining himself the position of manager to one of the nation’s biggest wholesale retailers. He was amazing at everything; except when it came to love. The night he found his ex-wife in bed with her gay best friend was the night he decided it wasn’t worth it. He was better off just focusing on his career, and nothing more.
He became content with just being. That is, until Jasmine Velez, his new employee, walked into his store.
Blunt, and honest to a fault, the woman captivates him against his will. Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s the first woman that doesn’t chase him around. Something that makes ignoring her that much harder. The last thing he wants to do is try to have a relationship with a woman again, and he knows that if he allows Jasmine in, that’s exactly what he’s going to go for.
Except, then he’s faced with the possibility of Jasmine being with someone else, and the choice is taken from him. He’s left with only one option: He needs to make her his. But that might prove harder than he originally expected.
How the hell does a man seduce a feisty woman whose gotten tired of waiting for him and is hellbent on not giving into him?

OUR FOUR STAR REVIEW
This was a great story. Greg was hurt by finding his ex-wife in bed with another man. Greg promises himself to never open his heart for anyone again. This seems to be working for him until Jasmine applies to work at his store. Jasmine catches his eye from the first moment and he begins to feel attracted to her. He cannot deny it but he is also not willing to act upon it. Jasmine does all she can to pull Greg out of his past but nothing works. It takes seeing Jasmine moving on with another man that finally pushes Greg over the edge. This was such a cute story. The characters had such chemistry and the sex scenes were smoking hot. This is a story about second chances and being smart enough to recognize when love is standing right in front of you. Loved this book and recommend it for everyone looking for a sweet romance.
