Synopsis: When everything is on the line, surrendering completely to love is your only choice…

Marketing manager Caila Harris knows that the road to success in the beauty industry doesn’t allow for detours. She’s forsaken any trace of a social life, working 24/7 to ensure her next promotion. When grief over her grandfather’s death leads to several catastrophic decisions, Caila gets one final chance to prove herself: shut down an unprofitable factory in a small Southern town. But as soon as she arrives in Bradleton, she meets one outsized problem: the town’s gorgeous mayor.

Wyatt Bradley isn’t thrilled about his nickname, Mayor McHottie. He’s even less happy to learn that his town might be losing its biggest employer. If he has to, he’ll use some sneaky tactics to get Caila on his side. Yet even as he’s hoping she’ll fall for Bradleton, he’s falling too—right into a combustible affair that shakes them both with its intensity.

Two stubborn people, torn between loyalty, ambition, and attraction. But when you’re willing to give it your all, there’s no limit to how far love can take you…

My Review:

I won this book in a giveaway and was so excited to read it. It did not disappoint! The characters are dynamic, and the story is a delight.

When Caila goes to a small southern town to shut down a factory, Wyatt, the town mayor must do whatever he can to convince Caila that closing the factory is a mistake. Caila is determined to get her career back on track, and that means closing the plant. Caila is a workaholic who rarely has time for anything else. The success of this task will get her rocky position back on track at work.

Of course, their feelings get in the way. Neither expected or wanted the attraction that they feel. However, Wyatt and Caila can’t resist their instant feelings for each other.

Caila is a strong, independent protagonist, and Wyatt, aka Mayor McHottie, is a swoon-worthy love interest! I loved watching their romance progress, as Caila and Wyatt compliment each other well.


Favorite Parts:

  • interesting characters
