Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O'Brien & Co., it's a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn't quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O'Brien. She's doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she's working on behind his back...
Quinn's not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn't been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn't wise, but that doesn't stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he's taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn't know he's risking a lot more than his heart.

Sutton’s contemporary erotic romance debut combines sweet romance, steamy sex, and emotional drama, and even though all the elements are individually well executed, they don’t quite cohere. Quinn O’Brien, head of a prominent jeans company, reluctantly hires up-and-coming designer Amelia Winger to create a new line of accessories for their floundering women’s division. Ambitious and resourceful Amelia quietly makes a deal with Quinn’s sister, Teagan, to rework the entire women’s division behind Quinn’s back. Amelia intends to keep her relationship with Quinn entirely professional, but their intense attraction, and Quinn’s determination to get his way, make that impossible. Persistent Quinn occasionally becomes manipulative, and while the conflicts are strongly rooted in character traits, the extent to which Amelia shoulders the blame for them is disconcerting, particularly given her unhappy past. Inviting settings and many appealing secondary characters—not including Teagan, who unfortunately mostly remains a cipher—are all pleasant enough, but the central struggle soon becomes off-putting.
