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.

To say that this story underwhelmed me would be a huge understatement.  I found myself actually getting angry at how the book took a huge downward spiral after the bones of the story were laid out.  The gist of it is this……
Sarah has spent the last nine years at her grandfathers company trying to forget a one night stand with a guy in college that she had a huge, huge crush on and after their one night he acted like it never happened. One would think after 9 years she would be over it…but….Her family company is on the brink of closing when her grandfather announces that he has hired a very well known company to come in and evaluate their company with hopes it might be able to be salvaged and flourish once again.
And I will give you one guess who the person is that comes to evaluate the company….yep..Sarah’s one night stand who she has compared every man against since then…Falon.  “Yawn”…..
Falon arrives at the company that he has been sent to evaluate and is met by a very rude but cute employee….(Sarah).  He has no recollection of who she is or the night they spent together.  He evidently spent a lot of his senior year drunk and had many one night stands.  It is revealed however, that they went to college together and that is when his “dream” is once again remembered.  You see he remembers a “dream” from college.  It was basically the best night of sex he has ever had.  EVER.  But since he cant remember the person he just chalks it up that is didn’t really happen it was a dream.  Really???
So naturally Sarah is mad he doesn’t remember….and Falon is starting to fall for her now that they are working closely together.
The sex was “G” rated and took almost until you get to 60% in the book.  Their interaction is stiff and forced.  Their is also the sidekick, co-worker, best friend of Sarah’s who tries to be tough and funny but just does not get the effect the author was hoping to reach.  When Falon finds out who she is “the girl of his dreams”, the moment is not what you would think it would be after almost 80% of the book being a big, long, dragged out climax.  I found myself skimming a lot of the book waiting for the big bang…and was left with a little firecracker. To be honest by the end of the book, I didn’t even care if they make up and end up together… Very disappointed.

Author Bio

I always knew I wanted to do something creative. After going through the standard childhood career changes of ballerina, doctor, and a rather embarrassing period of boy band charged rockstar dreams I found writing (which was equally embarrassing). Never really believing I could actually make something of my stories, I left for college, got married to my best friend and had a couple of kids before taking up the proverbial pen again.

After several false starts, I finally finished a full manuscript, then another and another. I loved each one like my own children and wanted to keep them safe
from the world, but I knew my stories would never reach anyone hidden away on my computer hard drive so I began cautiously sending them out and one landed a home with Entranced Publishing.

I live in Ohio with my husband and two young boys. No pets, despite the kids’
constant begging and various versions of ‘big ol’ puppy dog eyes’.
