ANNIKA

Cheating husband. On-air meltdown. Public humiliation.

Lucky me, I’ve experienced them all.

Oh, and the implosion of my career as an up-and-coming designer and renovation television darling.

That was then.

Now, I’m in the TV studio, more determined than ever to prove to myself (and the few fans I have left), that I’m back for good. Nothing from my past—no man, no mistake—is going to knock me down again.

If only fate—and Grayson Hesse—had gotten the memo.

GRAYSON

Woodworker. Stone house restoration guru. And the new host of Hesse and a Hard Place.

This is what I know:

If this show’s a success, I’ll finally be able to give my family the financial stability they need. My chances of success go way up if I have the best designer in the business working by my side. And the best in the business (despite the lingering rumors) is Annika Hale.

She’s the triple threat: brilliant designer, restoration maven, and the woman who stole my heart six years ago…and hasn’t looked back since.

But that was then.

Now… Well, what is it they say? After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

My Review:

This is a lovely contemporary second-chance romance where fate intervened six years ago and this couple’s one night stand looked like remaining just that until they’re working together on a new show…..

Annika has been through dramatic events since that night, including marrying, finding her husband cheating with her rival on a live broadcast, having an on screen meltdown, getting divorced – the lot! When she meets Grayson again, can she trust their still magnetic attraction and believe he won’t let her down He’s never forgotten her but will the magic still be there? Can they work together? Will they find love the second time around?

You’ve got to love how Grayson is there for his family – and there are some brilliant secondary characters amongst them! He’s a caring, gentle man and it is lovely how he helps Annika regain her self-confidence. Mind you. look out for a nasty surprise in store for them both when they have to face up to their past before moving on to a potential future together. This is a steamy romance and easy to escape into – a great addition to the series!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Don’t Miss Accidentally In Love by Katy Ames from the first season of 425 Madison Ave.

“This was a fun, quick read that has both heart and some heat. With a hero who has scars – both literally and figuratively – from the past and a heroine who steps way out of her comfort zone, it was easy to get caught up in this “friends with adventures” story.”—Em and Em Books

About Katy

Katy writes contemporary romances about heroines who aren’t afraid to kick ass, heroes brave enough to love them, and stories that get a little messy before ending happily ever after.

She’s mom to two boys whom she loves to bits but wishes would sleep a lot more than they do, and wife to a man whose reading habits are far too serious. Katy and her family reside in Washington, D.C., a city in which she never planned to live and loves so much she’d be happy to talk about it for hours. Just ask.
