If you can’t take the heat…
Entrepreneur Libby Harris’s specialty is making her famous muesli. So when an Olympic hopeful invites her to his flat to make her delicious cereal, she’s bewildered when his brother Jack walks in, accusing her of trying to ruin his brother’s career. Libby has every intention of staying single, but with Jack around, no way can she suppress the personal pleasure she’s long denied herself.
Investment banker extraordinaire Jack Barnes’s attraction to Libby is instantaneous, but he’s raised his two siblings after their parents died in an accident, and it’s been all work and no play for as long as he can remember. He can’t let down his guard now—not when his brother is so close to the gold. But keeping Libby busy and out of his brother’s life challenges every ounce of his self-control.
Neither wants a relationship, and though they can’t deny their incredible chemistry, Libby and Jack agree that what they have is temporary. So when things start to sizzle between them, will they be able to take the heat?

This is my first Natalie Anderson book. I really enjoyed her writing. For such a short book, she brought the characters to life, writing living, breathing, three dimensional people.

3.5 This was a very sweet short story. Libby and Jack were very sweet together. I just wish that the ending was a little longer. It ended with lets take it one day at a time instead of hearts and flowers. But that's ok. I just wanted to know what happened after they talked. Maybe there will be an... ...more
