Summer in the city…
She’s smart, hot, and funny. My dream girl.
There’s just one problem.
She’s also my best bud’s little sister.
The sparks have always been there, but law school had to come first.
Now, we’re all back in the city and the same sparks fly every time I run into her.
She needs a job and I need an assistant at the law firm. What could go wrong?
I don’t know if I can hide my feelings any longer. I know I shouldn’t go there, but I can’t help it.
My brother’s back in town, and I offer to share my awesome apartment. Imagine my surprise when his best friend Kurt walks in.
He’s still tall, dark, and handsome, and I can’t deny the pull.
Working together only complicates things. Long days and nights in the office can be dangerous.
When we’re not at the office, he’s always hanging around my apartment. To see my brother. Yeah, right.
All I know is, summer in the city is about to get a lot hotter.
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.
*Each story is completely standalone.
This is a lovely brother’s best friend romance and a great addition to the 425 Madison series. Each book is a standalone read but some characters from other books may appear in them. For anyone endeavouring to read them in sequence (which isn’t necessary, honest!) this is the seventh book and there are another two to complete the series.
They grew up together, with Kurt as Corina’s older brother’s best friend and her secret crush. After finishing High School they hadn’t really seen each other but now her brother is moving in to share her flat and it turns out that Kurt lives and works nearby. From the start, the attraction between them is magnetic but both are wary. When Kurt discovers that Corina is currently seeking employment he suggests she works as his assistant. Will this complicate or simplify things for this couple? How will her brother react to the burgeoning romance?
This is a heartwarming romance, a great read and I especially appreciated the ending which shares events from some time in the future. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series and this is certainly not the exception. I’m really anticipating reading the final two books in the series. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this – and the earlier books in the series – to anyone who enjoys reading contemporary romances.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it/
“I’m here for Corina Davies in 1205,” I respond, my nerves rattling even louder than five minutes ago when I was seized with the instinct to see her.
“Is she expecting you?” he asks, resting his hand on the phone.
I shake my head. The guy must think I’m a weirdo for just showing up like this. He’s going to call her for sure.
Sure enough, he picks up the phone. “Ms. Davies, you have a visitor,” he says, and then looks back at me. “Your name?”
I almost turn around to walk back out into the night, but I stay rooted to the spot. “Kurt. Kurt Owens.”
“Kurt Owens. Thanks.” He turns to me again and nods. “Go ahead. Have a good evening.”
I head for the elevator, and my heart rate rises with each step. She’s gonna think I’m fucking nuts for showing up like this at midnight. And why am I doing this again? What do I hope to achieve by interrupting whatever relaxing activity she’s enjoying at this time of night? I don’t know, but the thought of seeing her makes my palms sweat. I remember that skirt she wore, and how soft her legs looked. My cock twitches at the memory of her silky-smooth legs. Fuck. Down, boy. We’re not here for that.
I step into the elevator and before I know it, I’m standing in front of her door, my hand in the air. What am I going to tell her? What’s my excuse for showing up here so late? At the very least, I have to admit it to myself—I just want to see her. I have to see her. There’s no denying the spark that flew between us the other night. All those years hadn’t done a damn thing to kill our chemistry.
It sure is ballsy to just show up here. Maybe I’ve had a bit much to drink, but I’m not drunk. I’m not slurring or falling over myself. She won’t notice.
Finally, I knock. She’s expecting me, because she opens up right away. Seeing her knocks the wind out of me. Her hair rests over her shoulders in this sexy, yet natural way; she has a hint of makeup, but not much. She doesn’t need any. She’s still a natural beauty, just like she was all those years ago.
A light pink, silk robe clings to her body and ends just above the knees. She ties up the belt, very tight, as if afraid it might slip off any minute. Or that I might see what’s underneath. I try to push the thought from my head.
“Hi,” I say, hoping I don’t look as awkward as I feel. I’m standing in her doorway, without any good reason whatsoever, like a doofus. She’d be perfectly justified in turning me away with some excuse about going to sleep or whatever. But, she doesn’t.
She stands back to let me in.
I love the way my name sounds on her lips. Her lush, rosy lips. So smooth and kissable.
