Rylan and Miller’s arrangement has simple rules: Don’t stay overnight. Don’t tell anyone. Don’t fall in love. This is probably a bad idea.

Rylan Williams hates conferences: too many people, not enough routine, and way too much interaction with strangers. When he gets stuck in a broken elevator with Miller Jones, the kid who fell asleep in his lecture, he figures things can’t get worse. Then Rylan realizes he’s the same guy he just spent an hour perving over from afar.

Rylan wants to await rescue in silence, but Miller insists on conversation, or at least banter. But just because they don’t get along doesn’t mean they don’t have chemistry, and Rylan breaks all his rules about intimacy for a one-time-only conference hookup. He’ll probably never see Miller again anyway. So of course, two months later Miller shows up at Rylan’s office, having just been hired to work on a new computer program—with Rylan.

And Rylan thought being stuck in an elevator with him was bad.

Soon Rylan and Miller learn that they get along best when they take out their frustrations in the bedroom. Their arrangement goes against everything Rylan believes in, but the rules are simple: Don’t stay overnight. Don’t tell anyone. And don’t fall in love.

This is probably a bad idea.


(From previous site)

From the very beginning this books hooks you in and keeps you rolling along!  Rylan and Miller are hysterical together.  Their banter is hard and fast, and so is their sex!  The chemistry between them is killer and it lulls you into believing the romance may not be so good.

But then – in a very sneaky fashion – the authors twist and turn you around and now, suddenly, you find yourself in the middle of a tender and well written love story.  Just like poor Rylan, we readers are almost blindsided by the depth of emotions we find ourselves immersed in, and it makes a good book a great book about 65% of the way in.

My only complaint of the entire story was this issue.  I wanted to either have more of the secondary characters stories laid out for me, or less.  As it stands, they are kind of distracting and not very satisfying additions to the book.  So much care was taken into creating these real, vibrant, and rich characters, I think they deserved more involvement in the story.

I had never read anything by this author, but I will definitely be looking for her (them) in the future.

I give it a 5 of 5 hearts and definitely recommend this book!
