Secrets have a way of coming out…
Amy Cartwright isn't sure who she's supposed to be anymore. Her family thinks she's flighty, her ex believes she's a walkover (the bastard) and her friends think she's plain crazy. But there's a different side to her that nobody sees, nobody but the cool, sexy Scotsman who just happens to be her boss.
Callum Ferguson isn't looking for excitement; he's had that and it almost ruined him. He likes things calm and predictable – everything that his new PA turns out not to be. But from the moment she walks through his office door it's as though the light has come back into his life, and he can't get her out of his mind.
Fighting against the inevitable, they both try to ignore the attraction, but the flame of desire is too bright. They're soon drawn into a steamy love affair that they have to hide from everybody, knowing the revelation could cost them everything they’ve worked so hard for, including each other.
Author note: Canada Square is the third in the Love in London series, but can be read as a standalone book.
**long satisfied sigh**
I really enjoyed this book, it's my first read from this author and I can tell you it won't be my last.
Canada Square is book 3 in the Love in London series and I haven't read previous two books BUT I didn't feel I missed out on anything, this is a Standalone story. I have to admit though I loved Amy's brother Alex and if one of the books is about him I will be reading it.
Onto this book Canada Square, aptly named as this is where Amy gets her Internship.
Amy is a fun characther she's been a bit of a doormat and settled for her long-term boyfriend as it was easy and better the devil you know - well maybe not. She has friends and is busy studying at university.
Amy makes an impression on her first day, she is nervous about starting an internship and maybe doesn't react well to meeting her new boss. I wasn't sure about Callum at first, was he stuck up and privileged? Amy definitely thinks he is and has no trouble saying what she thinks, I found it very amusing.
Over time though it becomes obvious that these two like each other and one way they try to hide it is to throw slight insults at each other, this can only go on for so long and eventually they have to give in to the attraction they share, and their lips then do the talking. <3
Callum has a history, which makes him the man he is. He is 33 so 10 years older than Amy, but they are perfect together and their attraction and feelings for one another radiate off the pages.
Was there anything I would have liked to see... I would have liked to see Sophie's nose put out of shape somehow, she was no friend, as a friend would never tell you to stay with someone who treats you badly.
I loved how the author built the anticipation of the first (not drunk) smooch. Mixed into the romance is some mystery, which really intrigued me and added to Amy's story. I wish I could say their relationship all goes swimmingly, unfortunately, there's some angst, bad angst - it hurt, but I also had a feeling what was happening and was thrilled when I was right.
Would I recommend this book- Oh yes, it's a book to read in one sitting.
Five Stars from me
“I'm the youngest of three. Nothing's ever just about me.”He blinks slowly, eyes heavy lidded. “Something should be.”The moment twists, the humour dissolving in the frisson that grows between us. I feel it crackling and buzzing against my skin, and all I can think about is that kiss.Soft, sure. A brief moment of everything.“Something?” I ask, a little breathlessly.He catches my gaze, holding it without trying. In that instant I know for sure that whatever I'm feeling for him isn't one-sided. It weaves between us, soft as silk, unbreakable as iron. It makes me feel delighted and downright scared. I can cope with a crush, enjoy it even. Treat him like the eye-candy he is, a piece of deliciousness to look forward to when I enter the office. But mutual attraction? That's dangerous. It's a lingering force that threatens everything; my job, my degree, my hopes for the future.Here be dragons, but rather than run away from the flames, I'm letting them consume me.
