Brooke Parker has worked her way up from being a scholarship kid to working as General Counsel for one of the top restaurant chains in Chicago. She’s proven to be extremely capable, but the job demands a lot of her time. So much so, that the hot doctor she’s been dating, just dumped her, saying he never sees her, and it’s like dating a guy. Pretty much the same story as with the last two guys. Having been dumped by three men in the last eighteen months makes her consider taking a relationship sabbatical.
Then assistant DA Cade Morgan walks into her office, needing her help to catch a dirty politician in the act. The DA’s office and the FBI need to plant a microphone in one of the restaurants that Brooke’s company owns, and she’s the person who can make that happen. A former college football star and rising golden boy in the Chicago DA’s office, Cade is used to attention. His last three girlfriends claimed he was emotionally unavailable, but he’s not particularly bothered by his bachelor status. Sparks fly when he and Brooke face off against each other, and while they both try to deny the attraction, it doesn’t take long before they’re meeting for something more than business as well. Can two people who’ve been accused of working too much and sharing too little of themselves make it work? More on my blog.
