They have been rivals who fought until the bitter end and lovers who know every sensual inch of each other’s bodies. Now sports agents Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews are about to become the one thing they never expected to be: parents. But this new dynamic to their relationship threatens to fizzle the sizzling desire that once held them in thrall to each other. If salvation is only a forbidden fantasy away, then Shaw and the woman he loves must embark on the adventure of their lives.
Cassidy is aching to reignite their connection. In steamy assignations in strange places, she and Shaw live out their most intimate desires—and reveal their deepest secrets. But as Shaw works overtime to sign a superstar athlete, a corporate reshuffling could be a game-changer. Can Cassidy and Shaw save their relationship and have it all—a career, family, and passion that never quits?
First off the three star rating is mostly my fault its a four star read but I've missed out on the previous books so there's some history here that I've missed out on because this book seems to pick off where the last one left off.
This left me feeling as if I was missing some vital bits and pieces that sort of fit into the story and characters and where they are in this installment. Since I lean so heavily on characters carrying the story I appreciated that despite the conflicts our h/h are facing they don't just throw their hands up and call it quits.
This allowed me to invest in the characters Cassidy and Shaw more. I appreciated that Parker understood and included some reality in this installment and it was interesting to see how they work through their issues together. Not everything is always perfect and movie film romantic at all times for the rest of their lives.
There are struggles and pains to deal with both separately and together as individuals and spouses and parents. Its a rather good read I just need to pick up the previous books so that I can get a fuller more complete understanding of this series.
