Overview

New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton breaks the rule of mixing business with pleasure when two professional rivals cross paths at a tropical resort…

Since Ella Hick’s husband died five years ago, she’s thrown herself into her work, resisting every thought of getting involved with someone new. Now she’s finally ready for a man’s touch. And where better to indulge her desire for an anonymous hook-up than at a Hawaiian resort? So she’s stunned when the first man she runs into is her number one business rival, Clay Mansfield.

Clay’s determined to be the man to introduce sex back into Ella’s life. He’s been by her side ever since her husband died, but only in friendship. Now he can finally release the desire he’s held in check all these years.

Ella’s had plenty of fantasies about Clay over the past couple years and now she can indulge. As long as Clay plays by her no-strings rule: when the vacation is over, they’ll go back to being friendly rivals—business only.

But they’re both about to learn that when it comes to business—and pleasure—rules are made to be broken.

Includes a preview of Jaci Burton’s Thrown by a Curve

I disagree with the 1 page hipe that was written in the review. She must have had an issue that needs to be settled with BN. I purchased the Laced anthology and this story alone is 58 1/2 pages. And worth all of the $2.99 that is being asked! I sent that information along to Jaci herself and she is getting it corrected! Please do not let one review distract you from purchasing this book!

I don't usually like romance novels but I was impressed with this book. I like the fact that there was a realistic story to go along with the romance. I bought another novel by this author and was happy with it also.

~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog “Officially, Ms Burton pulled Clay from my fantasy closet!” ~Under the Covers NO STRINGS ATTACHED was first published in the LACED WITH DESIRE anthology. It automatically went on my TBR because I love Jaci Burton. As usual, the anthology was one of those on my TBR since forever and not getting any closer to the top. I’m glad that I’m getting to read these short stories now that they’re being re-released individually and I promise I’ll eventually go back and read the actual anthologies and the rest of the authors in them. “Stop. Do not look.. She never looked. Okay, she did. What breathing woman wouldn’t? At six-five or so, Clay was imposing. And he was model gorgeous, with sea blue eyes, coal black hair and a body that spoke of a man who really worked for a living.” Officially, Ms Burton pulled Clay from my fantasy closet! I’m not even kidding. So of course, when that description pops up on the first couple of pages, this book had my full attention. And the great thing is that it didn’t loose it. Ella’s husband died five years ago. He was the perfect man in every way and they had a perfect marriage. Since then, she’s taken over his construction business and involved herself in work so she wouldn’t have to deal with life. But lately, she’s been noticing her husband’s friend and business adversary Clay. He was an important support when her husband died and has been there for her all along. But now she’s actually seeing him as a sexy, droolworthy, single man. So what does she do? She goes on an exotic trip to Hawaii by herself to get laid. Weird, you might say. But in her line of business, she can’t afford to be considered weaker, and getting sexually involved with any man she knows would spell disaster. So she wants a one night (or one week) stand, in a tropical environment. Get rid of the stress and the hormones. Except her plans are somewhat changed when Clay follows her to Hawaii. For protection and to watch over her, of course. I’m not sure why these two didn’t jump each other’s bones sooner. They have some serious chemistry! I get the part of her not being ready because of her husband’s death, but I think she should’ve given in to her desires back home way earlier than their tropical encounter. Once I got past the panty melting description of Clay, he’s definitely straight out of my fantasies in every other way. He’s very alpha but not overpowering, successful, and wickedly good at…stuff. I though their week together was cute and brought out the feelings that had already been there but they were both suppressing. Overall, this was sweet and very sexy. Not an emotional story but a perfect little pick me up between heavier reads and full of Jaci Burton’s style! Favorite Quote: “I want strings, Ella. I want to be tied to you.”

By what the above reader wrote of this book of it being one paragraph, that is pretty sad. I looked at the product details above as well and it states "pages 1".???? I have not bought this book but on the two comments I am probably not goin to.
