Since the day Sophie started working at ATC, she has been attracted to her boss, Ryan Locke. Now, after six months on the job, Sophie notices that Ryan is seeing her not only as an employee but also as a lover too. However, Sophie is going through some hard times since her mom is dying and she is estranged from her brother, Gavin, and beginning a forbidden relationship with her boss just complicates her life further. The author realistically describes Sophie’s feelings, and her interactions with her dying mom that are so intense and poignant you will be wiping tears from your eyes.

The mounting sexual tension between the two burns up the pages so much that their first sexual encounter is the perfect combination of sexy and romantic. Just when you think Ryan and Sophie are on their way to happiness, Ryan discovers Sophie’s secrets and he accuses her of many awful things, breaking her heart. When Ryan realizes he is wrong about Sophie, the plan he executes to get Sophie back will leave you smiling.
Fistful of Roses is a memorable and captivating romance that will keep you hooked to your e-reader to the perfectly romantic ending.
