Hailey Mitchel wants one thing. Her boss. The only problem is he's never looked at her as more than a loyal employee. At least, not until his charming business rival, Caleb, drops into her life with an offer she can't refuse. He's willing to bet he can make her fall in love with him in a month, and if he's wrong, he'll help her find the keys to her boss's heart. Caleb Langston wants one thing. Revenge. Hailey is his ticket to finally evening the score with his old adversary. There's just one problem. The more time he spends with her, the less he cares about his grand plans for payback. But love is always a gamble, and soon he'll have to choose between his past and his future. And pray Hailey never discovers the secret he's been hiding from her.

Hailey is in love with her boss, Alex. For the last three years she has noted his every move, hung on every word and yet they remain friends, he just doesn’t seem to notice her in that way.

Step forward Caleb, previous best friend of Alex who wants nothing more than to get revenge on his now rival. Caleb is willing to bet he can make her fall in love with him in a month, and at the same time, he’ll help her find the keys to Alex’s hear. Having grown up together Caleb is the perfect person to have all the inside info on what makes Alex tick.

An interesting twist on romance but in this book it worked. It was easy to see the direction in which the story would go but was well written enough to make me want to see it through to the end. The characters were well developed, I loved Caleb and his sense of humour and his cockiness and I loved seeing the walls that he’d built up around him come tumbling down. There were lots of sizzly sparks (may have made that word up but it works for me!) between these two very headstrong characters but I enjoyed the way Hailey and Caleb bounced off one another (ha,ha, literally!)

This is the second book in The Sexy Billionaire Series that I have read and I’m looking forward to the next! Well done Ms. Davies!
