A point in time, an unexpected event, changes everything.
Reagan’s life was about to begin. A recent college graduate with her career about to launch, she was living in Boston with her best friends. She had everything she worked hard for until one man took it all away, leaving her feeling empty and desolate.
After spending a few years alone, Reagan finally moves to Chicago with her best friend, Aimee, and vows to put her past behind her. When Reagan lands a job at Powers Financial, she never expects to find the one person that would give her back the girl she left behind years ago.
Drew Powers loves being the powerful CFO of a successful corporation and raising his son, Dawson. He’s known as “asshat” at the company and it doesn’t help calm his temper or patience. Drew’s main focus doesn’t include love or commitment. Those are the last things on his mind.
When the reserved and beautiful Reagan Halloway bumps into him and tests his patience, he ignores the lust he feels for her until she becomes all he can think about.
Fate is a powerful thing. A force that leads two people to one another and gives them both the one thing they didn’t know they were missing.
I don’t feel it’s a spoiler to let you know this book has a rape scene. I know it’s a trigger for some people, so I’m warning you up front. I don’t usually read books with them, but I decided to give this one a go.
Reagan is still recovering from a trauma and moves to Chicago to be near her best friend. She gets a job as the personal assistant to the CEO of Powers Industries, and on her first day, runs into a man who is very rude to her. Turns out that man is the CFO and her bosses son, Drew Powers.
Drew has gone through a bitter divorce and his main focus outside of work is raising his 6-year old son, Dawson. When Drew meets Reagan, she stands up to him and doesn’t cower to him, which he finds intriguing. He gets to know her, and finds that he genuinely likes her, and when she meets Dawson, they hit it off right away.
Something happened at the end of this book that was completely predictable and in my opinion, kind of unnecessary. I won’t spoil it, but I didn’t care for it.
My real complaint, however, is THERE WAS NO EPILOGUE. Romance books need epilogues so we have closure. We had none and I was pissed. There is another book coming out about Reagan’s BFF and Drew’s cousin, and I will read it because I like them. Maybe I’ll get my epilogue then.
If you can get past a rape scene, then this book is worth reading.
