Peek Inside Blurring the Lines

Real estate development CEO Blake Whitman is an Aquarius with a philanthropic nature, but when it comes to work, he's driven and focused, and he would never, ever mix business with pleasure. But when it comes to his new, hard-headed and kind-hearted secretary, he’s breaking all the rules.

Sign: Aquarius

He broke all his rules… for her.

Real estate development CEO Blake Whitman is an Aquarius with a philanthropic nature, but when it comes to work, he’s driven and focused, and he would never, ever mix business with pleasure. As far as he’s concerned, office romance is off the table.

He also never backs down from a challenge, and Kira Layton just accused him of ruining the community. What better way to get her on his side than to hire her?

But the more he tells himself to keep his hands off his new, sexy secretary, the harder it is for him to come up with reasons why office romances never work and why it’s a bad idea to cross the line…

I can't even express how excited I am that I read this book. It's from an author that I'd not yet read and it is a great example of a very well done romance novel.
