A former rockstar. A perfectionistic yoga teacher. Opposites attract?

Rockstar Austin Michaels never took much seriously—other than his music. But tragedy thrust him out of the spotlight and into the boardroom. Now, he’s helping his brother run a luxury hotel chain and he couldn’t be farther out of his comfort zone. He’s doing his best––until his beautiful new spa manager arrives.

Yoga teacher Kenzie Banks earned her reputation as the best in the spa business by being a hyper-efficient perfectionist. Ready to plant roots after too many years on the road, she’s thrilled to land her dream job working for the Hotel Kings — they’re literally the family she always wished for. Except, her sexy boss Austin Michaels is driving her nuts with his impulsive decisions and smoldering glances.

The sparks between these two opposites burn so hot it’s a wonder they don’t spontaneously combust. But Kenzie knows what they say about fire…and she’s come too far and worked too hard to get burned. Can the pair find a way to work together, or will everything they’re building go up in flames?

Oh, Austin and Kenzie! These two have now topped my chart for my favorite couples of all time!! I love their dedication to their careers, as well as how much they deny a connection. As opposites, they are incredibly fun to watch fall in love. Their differences are precisely what makes them work — once they are willing to let their guard down. They both work hard and love even harder.

I absolutely have loved the previous books in this series but this one captured a special place in my heart. The vulnerability underneath their shells is like a warm blanket that wraps you up in every aspect of the book from start to finish. The heat is HOT, so be ready to stomp your feet in that giddy, school-girl kind of way as you read how these two navigate a relationship beyond a working one. For both characters, I felt like the pacing was on point, giving them time for healing, growth, and moving forward – together. Absolutely a gem!
