Dean Maxwell is a man on a serious mission: to woo a woman who wants nothing to do with him. Dean Maxwell rescues Parker Quinn from a potentially embarrassing situation but the moment she finds out who he is, she makes a mad dash for the exit. Dean does not make it easy for her to forget him. So he takes a risk that will either get him all that he wants to leave him with some serious regrets. Parker has her reasons for running from her attraction to Dean but can't seem to help herself. Dean is a super confident man and steamrolls her into doing what he wants. He is a man's man in a custom made suit. Though quite wealthy, Dean is likeable guy with a normal background and a normal attitude. Parker is a regular working woman with realistic personal insecurities and family issues.
This is a really sexy read but I went in thinking that this book would be based on non-stop sexual encounters and nothing else. However, Dean seems to be really into Parker and is not afraid to chase her until she gives in. Although there is some serious sexual tension, they don't do the "dirty" for quite some time (in bookland); this build up more far more satisfying than some quickie in the hall closet or elevator. There is a way that Dean looks at Parker that says that he knows her quite intimately even before they have sex. Dean's confidence is one of the sexiest aspects of the book. Add some family drama and a crazed, unknown psycho and this makes for a really good, sexy book. Much more than what I'd expected.
