If the shoe fits…run with it!


Breeze Cohen senses something is missing from her life, but her career doesn’t leave time for anything but retail business strategy—particularly the upcoming product launch for her cornerstone client, Nitrous.

No way is she going to let live-for-the-moment Logan Chandler tarnish her professional reputation. Even if the ex-athlete poster boy for Nitrous makes her heart pound like she’s run a marathon.

After surviving a near-fatal accident, Logan doesn’t want to waste a minute of life. It’s meant to be lived, ravished, enjoyed—and there’s no one he’d like to ravish more than Breeze. There’s a deep pool of mutual desire beneath her icy fa├žade. He can feel it every time they touch.

When a training snafu at Nitrous launches Breeze into damage control, Logan is ready and waiting to lace up and take her for a run on the wilder side—if he can catch her.


Warning: Side effects may include a desire to melt chocolate with body heat, spontaneous phone sex, and an intense drive to find loopholes in your workplace fraternization policy.

Review: This was a cute story, spicy but cute.
Breeze is a super work-a-holic who thinks making floor plans for her department store is fun. She seriously needs to live a little. Logan is her complete opposite, and you know what they say about opposites attracting.
After Breeze literally falls on (for) Logan, she actually fell off a step-ladder on to Logan. He takes it upon himself to teach her how to relax and live a little.
A really nice story, it's witty, sweet, and sexy. I liked Logan's persistence, the way he worked to break through Breezes icy demeanor. But to me Breeze attitude and her reason for throwing herself into her work and not having a relationship seemed over the top. I get it that things happen and different people react in different ways to different things. Yet to me the whole thing seemed way out of proportion. I understood the don't mix business and pleasure aspect much better. Although after a while that began to feel like a cop-out. I was actually relieved when she finally gave in.
There were some very nice romantic scenes in this book and the plot moved along really well. It is a little spicy and that was worked in very well. Over all a good story.
