John Dorsey’s life is good. He is the owner of Dorsey Construction. He’s the youngest person on the board of directors for Advantage Insurance Company. He lives on the beach. And he knows he can have any woman he wants. John’s got the world at his fingertips… except he’s yet to find a woman that stimulates both his body and mind.
Elizabeth Wright worked hard in a large Tampa law firm making a name for herself, but it came at the expense of her personal life. When Advantage Insurance Company offers her a job as corporate counsel, Elizabeth cannot turn it down. The thought that she can have a successful legal career and a life excites and intimidates her.
But when their worlds collide one day in the Advantage board room, neither Elizabeth nor John knows what’s hit them. All they know is they can’t stay away from each other.
The attraction between John and Elizabeth was obvious. Elizabeth tried to be logical, but one kiss from John turned her brain into goo. I was hoping they'd get it on in a conference room or Elizabeth's office. I was a little bit disappointed that they didn't, but John's home more than made up for it. A house with an elevator? Oh yeah, it's definitely more than enough.
John was very blunt. He said whatever was on his mind, and he was very clear about sleeping with Elizabeth. That came off a little creepy at times. It didn't sound romantic or sexy the way he would deliver his words. There's such a thing as too blunt, in my opinion.
Overall, the book was good, but quite short. I was also hoping I'd get to read about John and Elizabeth in the back of his town car as he promised. Well, I hope there's a continuation to their story!
