A while ago Owen and Maggie had shared a drunken kiss and since then fate has seemed to throw them together a lot both personally and in business. Maggie didn’t feel so alone when owen was around.

Owen’s younger brother Jonathan was also at the wedding and seen Owen watching Maggie and said to Owen Maggie was just trouble and their father had declared the Sinclairs were off limits a long time ago and would have a stroke if he knew Owen and Maggie were together. Owen felt in a way he had been involved with Maggie forever. Owen had become intrigued with the woman Maggie had grown into as they had know each other since they were young.

Owen wants to help Maggie with her problems but she doesn’t know if it’s just a ploy to bring her whole family down as Maggie had learned not to trust Owen being there for her.

I enjoyed reading this book. The story was a fun light read. This was well written and I liked the plot and pace of the book. I really enjoyed the build up of Owen’s and Maggie’s relationship. I didn’t like when Maggie didn’t believe Owen and that he really cared for her but understood why she felt that way. I loved how Owen respected and supported Maggie knowing what it may cost him.  I loved Maggie, Connie, Emma, and Tracy’s relationships and how they were there for each other. This was a little predictable but I still really enjoyed and liked this book. It was a modern day romeo and Juliet along with one struggling and one person rich. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
