Alexis Summers is happily married and a mother of two gorgeous children. She's been a stay-at-home mum for nine years now, but it's time for a change. Starting a new job with a prestigious hotel, she's excited about her new career. Her boss, the hotel's owner Bryce Clark, is rich, gorgeous, funny, single, and, as Alexis quickly learns, a genuinely nice guy looking for his one true love. He is also a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Alexis. The intense chemistry between them is undeniable - but Alexis is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not betray her husband and family. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly difficult not to cross. Will she succumb to temptation?

Worth the Read (I plan to read the sequel)
It is a low-hanging fruit of a 4-star. An easy read and not overtly predictable, though, toward the end I had a feeling how things were going to shake out and how the author would legitimize the less savory actions (or sequence of actions) of the characters.
Mid-book when Alexis fell into day-dreams that the reader thinks are real for a few minutes. Also, when her boss comes to her husband's house with a proposal straight out of Indecent Proposal.
When her girlfriend asks if she's nailed her sexy/handsome/rich boss "yet" ..... like, it's not a questions, it's a timeframe of inevitability. It kinda felt like that friend was the voice for the reader.
That this lovers triangle emerged from a girl/woman who was so
I REALLY hate that Johnny Depp quote about falling in love with two people and how you should pick the second because if you loved the first you wouldn't be in love with the second. It's total bullshit. Polyamory. It's a real-life functional thing. Depp should look into it. Didn't like how this book used his cliché quote as a conversation piece. It annoyed me and frankly seemed like the author's attempt to invalidate the legitimate love Alexis has for her high school sweetheart, Rick.
I thought the title was also cliché but gave it a try after another reader review insisted it wasn't as trite a story as maybe it seemed on the outside ((this is my first third-wheel romance where a Husband and children are involved)). For all intensive purposes, the author pulled it off and I enjoyed reading it.
