Some rules are made to be broken…

Rule number 1: No touching
Rule number 2: No kissing
Rule number 3: Never, ever, fall in love

Holly Wilder finds some of those rules pretty difficult to follow during her boss’s visits to present the Employee of the Month award. A relationship between them is prohibited, and even if it wasn’t, Holly has no intention of ever falling in love again. But that doesn’t stop her from craving Max’s touch.

Hotel owner Max Lazzari never expected to break his own rules, especially when they are so important to him. But sexy employee Holly is too hard to resist. Their no-strings, secret arrangement fits in perfectly with his no-commitment plan. A plan to ensure that no woman will ever again have the opportunity to hurt him.

Sizzling nights together mean Holly and Max start looking forward to the monthly visits more and more. Until they are both brought down to earth with a bump—a pregnancy one!

Will rule breaking lead to broken hearts?

This fast-paced romance had me wishing the novel never had ended.

We have our heroine, Holly Wilder, a well respected hotel receptionist and a model employee that is alway the talk at the employee of the month award meetings. And our hero, Max Lazzari, the owner of the hotel chain that has a very strict hand-off policy that he put in place. This rule is a little hard for them to follow when they literally can not keep they hands off each other ever time Max comes to the hotel. This results in a few bumps along the road that leave both Holly and Max absentmindedly bending the rule of their ‘no strings attached’ fun.

Ms. Rogers really drew me into the emotional ride that Holly and Max seem to be on. The authors writing really put me in the heart of each scene. Being able to read and understand the true feelings and thoughts of both Max and Holly certainly made me feel like I was right along side them for the ride.

The story flow was brilliant and the character development was fantastic, I could really feel the chemistry between Holly and Max. Through the whole book I was walking the line between wanting to know what happens next and wanting to savour this wonderful story.

I highly recommend this novel to all those who love romance novels.
