Being the assistant to uptight workaholic Brant Stone is more than Emma can bear. But in her weaker moments, she can't help but admit that the sexy control freak can turn her on with an insult more than any man she's ever met...
So when Emma gains an unexpected advantage, she blackmails Brant into accompanying her to her high school reunion. After all, the enemy she knows is preferable to a blind date arranged by her meddling mother.
But before they realize what's happening, they are doing more than acting the part...they're living it. The war that has been raging between them shifts playing fields to the bedroom, as hate turns to lust and then to something so much more...

The fifth in Landon’s Danvers contemporary series (Fighting for You) chugs right along until it takes an abrupt turn into a wall. The first half is sexy, fun, and filled with behavior that should lead to HR intervention for harassment and insubordination. Emma Davis and Brant Stone—her emotionally stunted, Type-A boss—sublimate their sexual chemistry with put-downs and subtle sabotage before she blackmails him into attending her reunion in Pensacola. As her pretend boyfriend, he charms her parents, even agreeing to join Emma in her oversharing mom’s Fifty Shades of Gray book club meeting until he realizes it’s not a book about ties. Just as their relationship gels, his ex-fiancée shows up in distress. In a flash the mood darkens and all the fun drains out of the book. Worse, Brant devolves from a stiff-necked jerk to a spineless one. (Dec.)
