All is fair except in Texas…

Spencer Hightower’s job is cleaning up other people’s messes. And she is damn good at it. Unfortunately, being a supremely organized workaholic, it isn’t always easy to meet guys—until Liam Connelly shows up, all gorgeous and really, really sexy. Sure, he makes Spencer’s pulse thump…but he’s also the biggest pain in her professional life.

Liam can’t believe his lousy luck when he learns that Spencer is his opposition in a high-profile scandal. She’s the best at what she does and the worst possible opponent. Of course, a little professional animosity can’t hurt a guy’s chances for a date, can it? Even as Spencer tries to keep her distance, their attraction grows stronger…and hotter. But once they cross all kinds of professional—and personal—boundaries, the situation snow-balls into a disaster that even the great Spencer Hightower can’t fix…

Know When To Hold Him is a great story. Spencer’s job is about cleaning other people’s messes up. That’s all she does. Think of a fixer –she fixes everything and makes it go away. Liam is a Harvard Grad lawyer turned sports agent. ...more

A big hit for me! I need a book to get my interest within the first few paragraphs for me to WANT to read the book and this one does.

This is a new to me author and I must say I really enjoy her writing style. This is an enjoyable read, well written, and the characters are great. It was a bit long but overall a really good story.

Fantastic story! Spencer cleans up public relations disasters for paying customers and Liam is a sports agent, which kind of does the same thing.

I enjoyed reading Spencer and Liam's story. She is truly a strong independent character. Spencer reminds me of an action movie hero, with the whole you-Don't-know-who-you-are-messing-with attitude. I absolutely loved it. She could so be my alter ego. She did not let anyone push her around or let the ...more

Great cast of characters-great beginning and grabs you from the beginning. Spencer is a tough cookie and she shows it right from the beginning.
