Goldie Locke is in love with her boss, Travis. He has always been the man of her dreams, but it’s getting harder to work for him when she really wants more. After a fire in her apartment leaves her temporarily homeless, she finds herself on her way to Travis’ cabin in the mountains, at his brothers’ insistence. She decides to use the time away to make some decisions about her future…with or without Travis.

Travis Baer had always prided himself at making his construction business a success. He is a man who goes after what he wants, but what he desires more than anything is Goldie. After being tricked into a weekend alone with his gorgeous assistant, Travis is determined to finally make Goldie his, and reveal his true feeling for her.

Could their weekend retreat be the beginning to the fairytale ending Goldie has always wanted?

This sure isn’t the fairytale I remember…it’s more.

This is my first read by Erika Reed and I’m looking for more of her books. This is a short read, but it’s packed with heat. Ms Reed has penned an interesting take on the Goldilocks story. It didn’t take me long to read this book, but I assure you, I’ll be rereading.

Goldie works for Travis. It’s a great set-up, although not all that original. Doesn’t matter. The chemistry between this woman with some body issues and this hunk of a man is off the charts. They sizzle. I couldn’t get enough of them together.

I do realize this book was part of an anthology, so that’s probably why it’s so short. I’m not complaining. I get the length limits, but on the other hand, I wish the story was a little longer because I wanted to know more about these characters. Grin. They were that fun.

If you want something hot, short and just right for lunch hour reading, then Goldie might be the one for you.
