Jorie Morrison moved in with her aunt and uncle when her cousin Lily was just a baby. Jorie had an influential role in raising Lily and the two are closer than sisters. Jorie knows that Lily is deeply in love with James but she is a little afraid that James will take her place in Lily's heart.
As Simon and Jorie spend time together, Simon begins to fall for Jorie. As he investigates Lily further, he soon realizes that Lily and James are truly in love but he is concerned that someone close to Lily is trying to ruin James' company.
This book had very likable characters and a good story line. There is one scene in particular where Jorie's eight year old piano student Darius is giving Simon tips on how to attract a woman that is riotous.
Simon blackmails Jorie into assisting him at least with his image by offering a large grant to Jorie's group that helps disadvantaged children with talent obtain scholarships. He also adds a piano for her impoverished protégé Darius Jackson. She reluctantly accepts. As Jorie and Simon come into close contact and fall in love, he has evidence that Simon's uncle is pulling a stock fraud that apparently implicates Lily's father.
Though the villains are too obvious and the "wrap up" to ingenuous, contemporary romance readers will enjoy this delightful tale because of the key cast. The lead pair feels the attraction, but both know she is way too passionate him, as he prefers logic. The secondary romantic duo provides immaturity yet hope for the future as they refuse to allow any barriers to hinder their plans. This quartet makes for a wonderful novel that the audience will value.
