"This job is going to be crazy enough. I can't have a relationship with you and have you as a client. I don't get involved with clients." Nick's harsh words may end everything before it even starts.

Nick Bolton is the most stubborn man I know. He has his reasons for not wanting to start a relationship with Arden Mitchell. Sure, she is his client, but could he not separate his personal feelings towards her and his professional situation? Now Arden Mitchell, I had total respect for her because she gave him the space he needed to think and figure out what he truly wanted to do with his life.

Nick had a hard decision to make, he could get sued for a job that he could not do or somehow figure out how he could have his guys do the renovation on Arden's motel. After meeting her, he knew what he needed to do even though his lawyer told him it was a bad idea. Both Nick and Arden had feelings toward each other instantly after seeing each other. They spent time together, having lunch, walking out on the beach and also just talking and getting to know each other. Except that Nick ended things between them.

Arden tried her best to avoid Nick but he was not making it easy. And after Arden saw where Nick lived and worked, she walked out on him.

I often wanted to slap Nick a couple of times to snap him out of the funk he was in. He had no right in stringing Arden along when he was the one that ended whatever they had. The romantic development is something that left me longing for more. I wish there was just a bit more of the hot romantic development between Nick and Arden but I understood the author's reasoning for it. The dialogue was well done and the story flow is good.

JUST A CLIENT is a contemporary story that warned my heart. I will say the happy ever after was completely satisfying and delightful. If you love contemporaries, why not pick up JUST A CLIENT today.
