Too bad fate isn’t done with them yet.Will they give in to their attraction, or is their newfound rivalry too intense to put aside?

No Time for Apologies by Jean C. Gordon is the fifth book in the No Brides Club series. Women with careers first have joined together to further their careers before marriage. It does not always work out that way. Love is a powerful force especially when the right one comes along. Kate Lewis always had a head for figures. She was a Mathlete along with Jon Smith. They were not great friends in high school, but ten years later, when they meet again in a supervisor-employee relationship, sparks begin to fly. Will Kate keep her promise to herself and choose her career over Jon? This is wonderfully written story with great characters. I really liked Jon's grandfather in addition to Jon and Kate! I highly recommend this book. it is full of emotions and is also a sweet story.

In No Time for Apologies, Kate is a super intelligent financial analyst trying to break the glass ceiling. She has been passed over for promotion to fund manager several times. Suddenly, the company has hired her an assistant, Jon Smith, whom they are obviously grooming for Kate's promotion.Jon has left the financial game behind for teaching. Jon wants to help his grandfather keep his farm so he takes this position for the summer. Kate and Jon were high school classmates. Kate and Jon were great together. The plot is interesting and reminds the reader to focus on what is truly important. It is so irritating when companies treat their female employees the way Kate is treated. This is a great book that you should not miss.

A sweet story about old friends reconnecting and becoming more than friends. Jon and Kate knew each other in high school. He was really geeky and she was popular. They were sort of friends back then but now Kate can't believe how much Jon has changed. Kate has focused her life on her career and her new assistant is none other than Jon. She has a plan and it doesn't include any time for falling in love. Sometimes plans change.
