Jac and Luke are hard workers, and put everything into their work. To bad their bosses are DB, but that still works out in the end for them both. There is definitely chemistry between Jac and Luke, and Gemma Brocato weaved her magic in a way that this is not so far fetched. I loved how Jac finally got her AHHA moment while still at the vineyard, and that Luke was willing to fight for them even this early. It was definitely a book that I could not put down. I wanted to continue turning the page to see what was next for Jac and Luke.
This story takes place mostly at a "team building" function and both the main characters just happen to be from the same town and at the same place a few hours away and just happened to have met at a previous function, and just happened to be the only two at the team building function without a partner. Lots of coincidences.
The story concept itself was entertaining and introduced us to characters that I hope are to be the main focus in upcoming books. I liked the characters in the book, but did not fall in love with them. I felt sorry for both of the main characters and the situations that they were in so I felt more compassion for them vs. loving them. Their dialogue was done nicely. The descriptions to details were deep and easy to visualize. As for the hotness level, it got steamy at times. No real LOL or teary eyed moments or heart twinges. Basically a well rounded book that was greatly entertaining.
Would I recommend this book? Sure!
Would I read more from this author? Yep! I haven't read anything yet by Gemma Brocato that I haven't liked and I don't expect that to change in the near future.
Sassy Beta Reading & Review.
What happens when two overworked, career driven people connect while at a team building retreat in wine country? Well they ..... nope - no spoilers here.
This is a well written story with two mature adults! And by that, I mean there is no unnecessary drama and OMG they actually talk! What happens when the road you are you are traveling suddenly doesn't hold all you thought it would? Do you take the fork or forge on ahead. This is the choice given to both Jac and Luke. I loved both characters and found things quite realistic. The only reason I didn't five star is was because it did drag a little bit for me in the middle. However, I didn't feel that there was any filler in the story.
Looking forward to the next book....and really hoping Bella gets a story.
Luca Rossi was panty-dropping, ovary-exploding handsome. Bella’s nickname for him was well deserved. Luscious Luke indeed.
Thank goodness she wouldn’t have to be the lady lawyers’ walking hemorrhoid for the rest of the week, unwanted and most unwelcome…
Jac shoved her hands under her thighs to keep from applauding Sally’s sudden outburst. The woman could stop looking for a spine donor. She’d grown one all by herself.
A glance around the table confirmed Luke’s theory that most everyone present thought Brian Evert was nothing more than a dick with ears.
This is my second Gemma Brocato read and for the life of me - I don’t know why I haven’t read more of her work. Of the two books I have -perused, she appears to write my favorite type of book - sweet, sexy, clever, low angst, smartly written, and packed with endearingly flawed characters, amusing banter, and an entertaining storyline. What is there NOT to love about a book like that? The main characters were both teeth-grinding and driven workaholics who had casually met through a friend and shared an instant and mutual attraction. Unfortunately, they did not meet up again for another month until they both found themselves at a work-sponsored retreat for team building. Timing is everything and sparks flew suddenly and freely, until an all-consuming and volcanically hot passion erupted. Instant and meaningful connections were made that deepened by the minute. But then - work priorities interfered, conflicts and uncertainty over their individual careers and bonehead bosses got in the way… plans were derailed and then a complete overhaul was required. However, their connection never wavered. I adore this type of sweet, supportive, and sexy story with a satisfying HEA. Lesson learned - I need to read more Gemma Brocato books.
Jac is not appreciated at her work. Her company she works for promoted unqualified family members over her. She realizes that there is more to life than working all the time. Luke realizes that Jac is the one for him. Can they realize that they are better working together as a team than apart?
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
