I love, love, love Amy Lane, and have highly rated almost all of her books. This one didn't do it for me. I couldn't get past the first 90-some pages. Unlike most of her books, where there is a slow build up of the relationship and sexual tension, with the 'first time' being a major plot point, this book started with the sex right away and kept with it. True, the characters have known each other a long time, but I missed the build of up 'I want you but I can't have you' and 'when will they and how will it happen?'. I also wasn't attracted to the 'ruthless business shark' character of Jace. It all felt very bald and harsh, not lyrical and warm/fuzzy like most of her work. This may well be someone else's perfect cup of tea, but I prefer Amy's books Sidecar, her knitting series, promises series and all her wonderful Christmas stories.
