If only dealing with people was as simple as dealing with computers.
Not a day goes by that Chelsea isn’t working to advance her career and prove to herself and her mother that she can be successful and in control. But Chelsea’s drive and determination also means that she’s pushed relationships to the back burner. Having a positive product launch is all that Adam cares about and his steadfast focus is legendary. He’s not used to being distracted and he’s promised himself that he won’t let another woman interfere with his life and his company’s future
This was my first Travey Livesay book and I really enjoyed it! Though not a fan of a character lying about why they’ve met the love interest, I still enjoyed this one; Livesay handles the plot with exceptional skill. Both characters grow throughout the story as they learn what’s really important in life.
Chelsea was a great heroine who I rooted for through out the book. Though she’s let her career take over her life, she’s never lost her compassion and kindness and you can clearly see how lying to Adam is a very uncomfortable experience for her.
Adam was a bit unlikable in the beginning because he comes across as really arrogant and uptight. But hang in there, because once you get to know him and see his more vulnerable side, he’s well worth the wait. Adam’s genius and his struggle with his issues makes for a really interesting character. I’ve read other books where author’s try this type of character and it hasn’t been successful. But Tracey Livesay does a fantastic job with Adam.
