Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately, though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot.

But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love . . .
