Library JournalBrooke Parker is general counsel for Sterling Restaurants, a large Chicago firm that is moving beyond eateries into national sports franchise food service. Brooke loves her job, even if her latest boyfriend doesn’t see her as a “big picture” girl. So what could Assistant U.S. Attorney Cade Morgan want when he shows up unannounced in Brooke’s office with two FBI agents? Brooke is intrigued by Cade and happy to assist in a sting to snag a crooked politician. Yet once the agents get their man, Brooke finds she can’t stop thinking about the very attractive Cade. And the feeling is mutual, but as both of our protagonists have had less than successful previous relationships, they decide that playing it cool is the best option. Still, the glimpses of vulnerability and concern from both parties only heighten the interest, rather than tempering it. With the appearance of an unknown half-brother in Cade’s life and a lucrative job offer for Brooke, can our high-powered couple find room for something deeper?
