A love that breaks all the rules…
Since her first day at work, Beth Graison has been in love with Dean Sutherland—the “Son” in Sutherland & Son. Although he’s an unrepentant player, there’s an unmistakable connection between them, and she knows he feels it too. But she’s not about to risk her career for any man, especially one with an office right down the hall whom she works with every day.
Dean Sutherland doesn’t do love, but he does do women. And he hasn’t felt more than sexual attraction for any woman until Beth. Entirely feminine, smart, and with a natural beauty beyond compare, she makes him think about all kinds of uncomfortable things—like a future and happiness—things he knows from experience are pure fiction.
When his father, the “Sutherland” in Sutherland & Son, propositions Beth to be more than just an employee, Dean can’t keep her at arm’s length any longer. But he doesn’t expect the scorching kiss they share, or the idea that forms when he holds her in his arms. Can he stop his father’s manipulating game by making the first move on Beth? Or will his reputation as a womanizer make him just one more Sutherland she wants to ignore?
Eden Summers does a fantastic job writing the reformed bad boy and the sassy but vulnerable heroine in Concealed Desire.
Dean Sutherland shut down his heart after being hurt by women he thought loved him one to many times, Beth Graison has had the hots for Dean since she started working for him and his father. Beth isn't willing to risk a broken heart over a man who obviously is allergic to commitment when she wants it all, the picket fence, children and a dog.
Concealed Desire is a fast and funny read with characters you can connect with and enough heat to keep you warm on the coldest of nights. The shower scene alone is enough to let you turn down the thermostat. This is a great mixture of love and steam enough of both to make the book not just erotic but a great romance as well.
We meet several supporting characters that Ms. Summers could if she decided to use to write a series, I for one would like to see Beth's best friend Angela have her own story and maybe Steve as well. Just an idea for you Eden Summers ;O)
