Where There’s A Will…

One scorching, unforgettable kiss under the mistletoe is all that either have allowed. Addison is focused on her studies and becoming a lawyer herself and she plans to leave the dust of Whiskey River behind. Unless…

There’s A Way…

Addison has mastered ignoring her hotter than sin boss until one stormy day when a threatening tornado forces them to find shelter from the storm. Despite the fact that Addison is weeks from moving to another city, she finds herself breaking her own “no office romance” rule. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive and tempting as Ryder? She’s determined that he should be her going away present but will Ryder let her go that easily?

This short, swift novella is a brief intro to one of those secret families coming out after the will is read series. Before that family drama kicks off, however, we meet Ryder the lawyer in charge of the explosive news, who also happens to be a cousin to the men involved. But that’s not all that important here, because this story is about Ryder and his secretary Addison and the red hot chemistry between them.

I was a little disappointed by this story, if I’m honest. It didn’t really catch me. Addison’s fear of the storm was understandable and yet I think I was expecting more from her story as to why she was so scared. Then there was the constant flip-flopping of feelings from both characters. Considering how short a time they spend together in that cupboard an awful lot goes on, both mentally and physically, and it was just too much, too soon and felt too rushed for me.

As for everything that happened afterwards… meh. Ryder was a hopeless case and to be honest I just wasn’t that interested in how things turned out. Even the reading of the will felt like a bit of a letdown. As an introduction to this new series it’s okay and I’m still curious enough to want to know more, but on its own it’s just a little too rushed for me.
