The story of Cole Bennett and Olivia Masterson starts with a simple dare from a friend who think Olivia should get out more. Cole and Olivia meet at a bar near their work and the sparks were flying before they even said the first hello.
Cole has come to be a partner at the company they both work for. A position, that really should have been offered to Olivia. Now, with the heat coming off both of them when they hare a room, Olivia "Liv" and Cole have to learn to work around it. Since office rumors spread faster than wildfires. Liv does not want to tarnish her ice queen reputation by having an office romance make her look bad.
Cole does not understand at first why Live is so put off by the idea of them together in private. Who has to know? Aren't they both adults who can choose for themselves? Liv is furious that Cole thinks he can have the partnership and her too.
Live has worked hard to get where she is and should have gotten an offer for partnership. Now a big account is at stake and Live and Cole must work together to get a chance at earning it.
Live and Cole work for weeks together on this hopeful account. In between sparks that fly on their own, and more work and less sleep than either can really handle - Live and Cole decide to be together and hide it.
Once the account was a sure thing - Liv is surprised when finally getting the offer for partner. Until she finds out why.... and what finally got her boss to offer..... Cole. How could he not see she wants to earn her own way? Can they meet in the middle or will this heat turn cold?
Such an amazing chemistry between these characters and the live wire is so loud you can hear it crackling amongst the pages as you read. They are so meant to be together. They just need to learn how to rely on one another and not just themselves. Being hurt before makes most people gun shy and these two are no different. The ending surprise was so good - prepare yourself with some tissues!!
