Summary: (from goodreads) Suzy Denton seems to have it all together. She loves her job as an event's planner for Danvers International, and she loves her high school sweetheart and fiance Jeff. Fast forward a month and it's all gone to hell in a hand-basket. She finds out Jeff's dentist has been doing more than drilling his teeth, and Danvers is in the process of merging with Mericom creating the largest communications company in the US and also bringing Gray Merimon, the CEO of Mericom into her life.

Gray pursues her from almost their first meeting. Even though he looks like sex on a stick, Suzy is afraid of being hurt again, and she thinks Gray is just another stuffed shirt looking for a relationship. When he calls her bluff, Suzy agrees to one night of sex, hoping that he will be terrible in bed and she can finally get him out of her system.

When circumstances throw them together for more than one night, can Gray convince Suzy that two complete opposites can be a perfect fit?

Author, Sydney Landon, does not disappoint with the second installment of the Danvers series. Suzy Denton is introduced to us in the 1st book as Danvers Internationals special event planner and lunch confidant for Claire Walters (now Claire Danvers). She is outspoken, flashy, and beautiful which seems to allow the boss to swallow her flashy and unprofessional workplace attire. Although Suzy may talk a big game, truth is she is really inexperienced with men. The one exception being her high school sweetheart/exfiance'. That relationship had ended recently, very abruptly, because of his exposed infidelity. Suzy wasn't sure she was brave enough to risk her heart again.

Grayson Merimon, or Gray as he preferred to called, has finished the merger between Danvers and Mericom. Mr. tall, dark and handsome was, as Suzy said, "a stuffed shirt" and was now working as President of Operations at Danvers. This made it necessary for him to relocate from Charleston to Myrtle Beach. Gray had been intrigued with Suzanna from the very first time they met more than a year ago. Breaking through the sassy exterior Suzy displays to the world would be a challenge Gray relished and knew he would not flounder.

I really enjoyed the continuation of the Danvers drama. Suzy and Gray are so completely different and yet this quote from Grey had me hooked. "From the moment we met I ceased to exist without you. You've put me off as long as I can take. Ready or not, Suzanna, I'm coming for you, and I don't intend to stop until I have you…forever." But Gray has something he's keeping a secret. After building a close relationship with Gray's brother, Nick, it hurts to find out he seems privy to the identity of the person on the cell phone messages and texts. Can Suzy let go her mistrust and give Gray her heart or will his ultimate revelation be their undoing?

I love the sexual tension in this book. When it finally delivers it doesn't let you revel in the afterglow before discord rears its ugly head and problems are brought front and center. I like Suzy's strong personality tempered with her quite sensitivity. Gray is any woman's white knight, a little wounded from life's battles. They may seem like an unlikely match, but those make for the hottest connections sometimes.
