Cassie was such a great character. She was a real woman - not your typical romance heroine - and she faced some pretty serious real-life style problems. Struggling to make her way through college and get her degree in mathematics, Cassie works as a bar tender at a trendy restaurant. Here is where she stumbles into being acquainted by Jack - a CEO with one heck of a math problem.
Real estate mogul Jack Winter has rules. Lots of rules. After all, a man doesn’t build
an empire without a little discipline. And on page one of the rulebook? Don’t sleep with your employees. Especially when there’s a multimillion dollar real estate deal at stake...
Luckily for Jack, Cassie James isn’t really his employee. She’s a hot bartender who just happens to be the math genius he needs, and if they share a wicked chemistry? Well, that's just a sexy little perk. So they strike a deal: Cassie helps Jack with the merger. And until the deal goes through at Christmas, they can indulge every sexy little impulse they desire. But the more rules Jack makes, the more he seems to break...
Jack has so very many rules - he's quite an uptight man and his reaction to Cassie is completely out of character for him. But maybe if he just breaks one rule - it'll be OK. He can still go back if it's just one. Well, maybe two - or three - and soon he finds himself sliding down a steep slope where all his precious rules are getting thrown out the window.
They grow to care for each other as they work on Jack's math problem for his company - and they learn a lot of really cool little things about each other. Like Cassie's fascination with the stars - I loved that she was so impressed with such a simple thing. It made her even more likable than she already was and played a good part in the story-line several times as well. In fact, all the little facts and figures that are introduced along the way play important parts as the story unfolds. It was very well done.
This was a very sweet romance with a lot of intense moments that gave it just enough spice. I loved how the characters related to each other, and Jack's business deal was wrapped up and handled in a way I thought was just about perfect.
