Sarah Maxwell had spent years trying to forget the one man who broke her heart. She’d buried herself in her family’s business never expecting to lay eyes on him again…until Falon Wolfe walked into the conference room, bringing a plan to turn the agency around along with all those unrequited feelings.
Falon was the one thing in her life she could never forget. And she’d tried. For nine years she tried forgetting the scent of his skin and the way his body felt against hers. She had never planned on seeing him again after that one night of pure bliss. A night he obviously didn’t remember. He’s cold, detached and she has the sudden urge to reignite the fires of the past.
He can’t get her out of his head…
Falon Wolfe was a man hardened by a life on the wrong side of town and the personal drive that made him the success he was. A self-made financial success story, Falon traveled around the world turning failing companies around—by any means necessary.
At the request of his estranged grandfather Falon finds himself at Maxwell, Williams and Blake, a failing talent agency in the heart of the city he vowed never to return to. When he agreed he thought that it would be a simple job. He had never been more wrong. The first time he laid eyes on the feisty Sarah Maxwell she stirred something in him he hadn’t felt in a very long time, and he wanted nothing to do with it. What he did want was Sarah, as many ways as possible, while he was in Chicago. When the job was done so was she, that’s the way it worked, always had always will. But when Falon starts dreaming of the luscious redhead he wonders why his subconscious is connecting her with his past and why he can’t shake the feeling that she is so familiar.
When feelings change from cold agendas to blazing passion Sarah and Falon must come clean about their motives or risk losing everything. Sarah must move past her insecurities and Falon’s frigid walls if she truly wants to tame the Big Bad Wolfe.
Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolfe? Well Sarah defiantly isn’t as she just can’t stay away from him! Must say that I absolutely love the cover – all broody and mysterious – you can see why she would fall for a guy like that.
So you have Sarah who has spent the last nine years of her life trying to forget the one man she truly wanted but thought she couldn’t get. Well for more than one drunken night that is – well drunken on his side. After suffering from some devastating news Sarah goes to see a friend for comfort but comes across Falon instead. He calls for her motioning her closer to the bed and when she’s there they end up having the best night of both of their lives. Only snag is that when Falon wakes up he can’t figure out if the best sex of his life actually happen or if he has an over active imagination as the star of it is no where to be seen. After trying to search for her in the weeks that follow, and coming up empty handed, he decides to believe in his mind and live with the dreams that follow.
Nine years later and it looks like they are going to be put in each other’s paths again. Sarah’s grandfathers business is in trouble and needs help, which brings in Falon. He is a pro with turning failing companies around and agrees to help as a favour for his grandfather. When they meet up again Sarah feels like she has been soccer-punched, she can’t believe he is right in front of her looking as hot as ever. She can’t decide what bothers her more, that fate has brought him there to help them or that he doesn’t even remember her. The more she tries to convince herself that he means nothing the more he starts to.
You can see the chemistry between them straight away, bubbling beneath the surface just waiting for that spark that will set them off. When that spark is finally lit its gets electric – only problem is that Falon is holding back. Sarah can see he has closed himself off from the world and she is determined to break through his icy exterior and bring out the fire she can see that lies just beneath the surface. Once she does all bets are off with how hot they can be together.
The only thing that I found a bit annoying was the amount of spelling and grammar mistakes but once you over look that the story still holds true. It is a story that builds with sexual tension right from the start before finally getting Sarah and Falon together so if you are expecting sex straight off the bat you will just have to hold in there and wait it out.
