One summer weekend can change everything …
Alicia Marlowe’s life as an executive coach is well under control – until she meets her new client, Jack Smith. Jack’s reputation precedes him and Alicia knows immediately that he spells trouble. Not least because he reminds her of someone else – a man who broke her heart and made her resolve never to lower her guard again.
Taking Jack on as a client is a risk, but one that Alicia decides to take for the good of her career. As long as she keeps him in his place, she might just make it through unscathed. But Jack has other ideas – including a ‘business’ trip to the Lake District. One summer weekend with him is all it takes to put Alicia’s carefully organised world in a spin …
One Summer Weekend focuses on Alicia when she meets Jack from a company who have taken her on for her coaching skills. It’s obvious there are sparks between the two as soon as they meet, although Alicia tries to fight it all the way.
Alicia does come across as being quite frosty and Jack certainly has his work cut out trying to thaw her. The business trip to the Lake District makes for an idyllic setting and was quite envious of Alicia having a hunky man and stunning views.
Jack was a good love interest being good looking, self assured and someone basically I’m sure most of us would happily fall for. I was certainly interested in getting to know him better.
One Summer Weekend is a novella so didn’t take long to read at all. It’s ideal if you want a quick and engaging read. With a lovely summery feel cover, it will certainly have you wanting to pack your backs and swan off somewhere nice.
