Trusting yourself is hard.
Megan's world has no room for romance.
With five-year-old twin daughters to support, she has no intention of letting a man take charge of her life ever again.
Then Jordan Lambert comes to town. As the owner of the new resort in Dreamers Bay, Jordan represents everything she despises—rich men who think they can buy anything or anyone. There's no way she's letting him close, no matter how much he persists. No matter how sexy he is.
Just when he'd thought things were running smoothly at the resort, and in his life, Jordan discovers this couldn't be further from the truth. He needs to hire someone fast, and Megan Adams, with all the necessary skills, is the one he wants.
The fact that she stirs his blood with her sassy mouth and fiery hair is irrelevant.

A man tries to woo a woman with a bruised heart.
Megan is fiercely independent and has to be since her ex left her alone while pregnant with their twin girls. Years later, she's still alone and working hard to make ends meet and provide for her daughters. So when a man comes around with an offer she can't refuse, Megan finds herself finally giving in.
Jordan has had his eye on Megan for a while. Not only does he think she would make a great manager and addition to his resort, but he also wants to see if this attraction he has to her can lead anywhere, despite her constant refusal of his advances.
Soon, Megan realizes that she has her work cut out for her. Both in regards to her new job and the boss who is insistently attempting to take their relationship to the next level. But even though her body agrees with Jordan's plan, her mind keeps stalling. She's had a bad experience with wealthy guys in the past and doesn't want that life for her and her girls. It will take a lot of convincing for the pair to have a shot at forever.
This was a shorter read and we're thrust right into the struggle between our couple, but the scene was set up nicely. We get an idea of why Megan is so mistrusting of rich men and she is definitely persistent. Jordan puts himself out there and admires Megan's backbone, yet she rejects him time and time again, simply because she's afraid he'll be like her ex.
In fact, her stubbornness did get on my nerves at times and is the primary reason I am giving this three stars, instead of four. She fought him up until the near end and then decided that she wanted to pursue the relationship. I found her turnaround to be too sudden and not entirely believable. I also thought the very end was too neatly wrapped up.
The next book of the series follows Megan's friend, Stephanie. I may pick this one up in the future. For this one, three stars!
