Book Description

Morgan Lane has just completed grad school, and has accepted a job at Baylor Industries with the help of her father, who just so happens to be golf buddies with Drake Baylor Sr., CEO. Morgan has lived her 24 years of life under her parents thumbs, and is more than eager to start living life and carving successful career for herself.

Drake Baylor Jr. is being groomed to take over as CEO of Baylor Industries upon his father’s retirement. Although he was raised in an affluent household, his formative years were rough, leading a string of bad decisions, and hard lived years. In order to take over as CEO, his father has given him a set of rules to live by for an indefinite period of time: No drugs, limited alcohol consumption, and absolutely no relationships whatsoever with women-his greatest weakness. If Drake can abstain from those three things, work hard, and gain his father’s trust, he can have the keys to the Kingdome.

Drake meets Morgan on her first day at Baylor Industries, and the phrase “love at first sight” doesn’t even come close to describing what is felt between them. Their instant attraction is a magnetic pull that is stronger than either one of them can handle. Now Drake and Morgan are faced with figuring out how to fight for their future together, hoping not to get caught “Breaking the Rules”.

My Thoughts:

With the help of her father Morgan was able to land a great job at Baylor Industries. Drake had a past and is working on redeeming his self. Drake just has to follow some simple rules: No drugs, limited drinking and especially no women. Simple enough right? Wrong. Morgan and Drake's connection was instantaneous and Drake has to fight hard to keep his feelings at bay. When that doesn't work they decided to keep their relationship hidden, but will his secrets stay secret for long?

I enjoyed this book. But, the whole instant connection was cheesey. I feel like their relationship was just rushed. They fell too hard and fast that it was too hard for me to believe. Then again I gotta remind myself when it comes to books that thats all they are, books not real life. Other then that I loved the connection even if it was cheesey. I liked Morgan was a women who came from money and rather then expecting a man to take care of her she decided to get her education and get a great job to take care of herself. I liked that she says what's on her mind no matter the risk. I had a love hate relationship with Drake his hot and cold moodswings I hates, I was trying to be a bit understanding but it was hard to. I feel that they risked too much for a relationship that seems more like Lust than love. Overall I enjoyed this quick and steamy read and I can't wait to see what happens next. 4 of 5 stars.
