Dear Ms. James, There’s no easy way to say this so I guess I’ll just come right out and get it over with. The bloom is off the rose.
-Dear Author

Synopsis

Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up, she never expected to see him again. Nine years later, the beautiful assistant U.S. attorney finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courtroom-and still wildly attracted to him. Just released from prison, Kyle isn't thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case. But he may find gorgeous Rylann Pierce is the one lawyer he can't refuse.

I hoped that Kyle and Rylann would up the sexual tension, keep me flipping the pages until I couldn’t put the book down, but for me it just didn’t end up that way.

It’s refreshing not to have silly overblown drama, but there is also a feeling like there’s no fire, no feverish need to turn the pages when everyone is so reasonable.
