Chemistry is not love.
That’s what my boss, the grumpy single dad with brilliant green eyes, says anyway.
I have my V-card. He’s ten years older than me. I work for him.
Nate Hughes has a million reasons why a relationship between us would never work. Honestly? It’s all a farce.
He can’t deny our connection. His soft smiles, brief touches, and protective behaviors come too easily. And when I need a place to stay? He can’t stop himself from offering me a room—though I’d prefer his bed. After all, there are sparks—delicious, sizzling sparks—when we’re together.
Our forced proximity brings things to a head. Our shared experiences and traumas draw us closer. Our undeniable attraction has us toeing the line between friends and lovers—whether Nate likes it or not.
He’s right—chemistry is not love. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t fall in love with him … even if he can’t love me back.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Does small town swoony romance get better than the Landry family? I don't think so. And this installment from Adriana Locke was just as the title says...Sweet. Especially after that emotional reunion in the last book.
I adored Paige. She was fiery and kind. Thoughtful and sassy. A little down on her luck but not out thanks to her good friend and boss, Nate. Mmmmmmmm Nate! A bit grumpy and a whole lot of yum. Cool boss. Dedicated father. Loyal brother. In over his head when he agrees to help Paige out of her bind.
There was no denying the chemistry that was simmering between these two. And that moment when they gave in...that hotness was well worth the wait. But while Paige was ready for the here and now, Nate wanted a relationship to build a future on because it wasn't just his heart on the line, it was Ryder's too.
Full of friendships and humor, family and heat, Paige and Nate's friends-to-lovers romance had me hanging on every word. Especially when all of Paige's fears come to the forefront. My heart was aching for them both. These two were so right for each other if only they would get out of their own way. But be still my happy heart because that ending was just perfect.
