Taking Care of Business by Kathy Lyons

Entertaining Fantasy Escape
4 stars

Julie Thompson's business is failing and she desperately needs a distraction. One comes in the form of a sexy encounter in an elevator with a hunky handyman which soon turns from sexy encounters to a fledgling relationship.

Millionaire CEO James Samuel Finn has always had a problem with people being only after him for his money and so he lets Julie think he's part of the maintenance crew. But as their encounters change and feelings start to emerge will his secret destroy what they've started together.

This was an enjoyable story and it really kept me hooked. With such an obvious source of conflict between the pair it could easily have been quite a predictable book but I never got bored and didn't once anticipate exactly what would happen next.

I liked Julie - strong and confident yet still likeable and relatable. Sam was an ideal hero - a little geeky but still strong and sexy (although I couldn't really enjoy the image of lycra cycling shorts!). He had flaws and was unsure and worried at times but he made the perfect partner for Julie. Together they had great chemistry and the sex was plentiful, hot and at times a little kinky. Just as you would expect from a Blaze novel.

Following on from this book is In Good Hands (Harlequin Blaze) which is Roger's story and I'm hoping we get a little more of Sam and Julie in there, too.

Overall this was an enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours and I liked it a lot. 4 stars.
