A keen eye for details, Avery Roberts can spot a disaster waiting to happen a mile away. This uptight, classy, and sophisticated woman is a contemporary art buyer in New York City where she is trying to make a name for herself in the industry. Having been reared by a prominent family, she has no need to work, but her desire to make it on her own will not allow her to use her family's connections. Her first big art show is finally underway for her new artist when in walks a group of uninvited guests who are accompanied by a sexy, and handsome man who makes her lose her breath.
This breath of fresh air is Quentin Davis, an unattached world-renowned photojournalist who travels the world dating women from all walks of life with no long term commitments. Upon sight, a spark or a flicker could not be seen between the two; Avery's demeanor is so cold towards him she is quickly nicknamed "Ice Queen". His friends take notice and propose Quentin with a $50 bet in order to try and win her over. Never one to back down from a challenge, Quentin accepts and begins the journey of chipping away at her cold exterior.
Much to everyone's surprise, a deep love develops, taking them places they've never been before. They are so excited about their future until their personal lives ensues chaos, jeopardizing their budding relationship. Their lives are intertwining in ways they never thought they would which makes it impossible for their relationship to survive...or does it?
Yahrah St. John shows the reader that work must be put in for any type of relationship to work. Both Quentin and Avery had to deal with several obstacles, both personal and professional, before they could commit to one another. This love story is well-written and flows very well keeping the reader engaged with every passing chapter. The challenges presented to the couple are extreme; however, it is necessary in order to show their dedication to one another. If you're a fan of St. John this work will not disappoint you.
