Summary

This is book two in the Holiday Series.

Talon Mitchell had gotten a job right out of college, had her own coffee mug at the office that no one else could use, and planned to keep her job as sales manager for a long time, because she had practically grown up working for this company. She was content and not looking for anything, when a new sales director showed up and changed everything. 

Emerson Bagley just got a new job, and while she felt ready for the next step, when she sees someone she recognizes from a holiday party working on the same team, she can’t believe her luck - both good and bad. Good, because Talon Mitchell was very attractive, very smart, and seemingly, very interested in Emerson, too. Bad, because she couldn’t date someone who worked for her, especially in her brand-new job.

Feeling the simmering heat begin to boil over, the two women decide to at least take one step, and deal with the rest later. When neither of them had been prepared to seek out love, they managed to find it where they least expected it.

Holiday Series, Book 2 is Smokin'

This is book 2 in the series of 6 friends that begins on New Year's Eve (Holiday Series).

This is Talon's story. Steamy doesn't begin to cut it! It's an inferno!

Emerson is hired as Talon's boss's boss, and they both struggle with their magnetic attraction.

Even though she's great at her job, Talon struggles with self-confidence. Her vulnerability with her friends when talking about how hard she was crushing on Emerson, but too scared to do anything about it is very realistic.

I now want a bouncy house! LOL

I read this book before listening to it. Sometimes, the narration doesn't work well, but in this case, it was great! I really enjoyed the narrator, Carolyn Eve, I was not familiar with her. She has a challenge with so many characters and did a great job brining them to life! Talon and Emerson's emotions for each other was so good. The narrator made you believe the intensity of the feelings between the two.

Nicole Pyland is an excellent writer. She really shows characters vulnerabilities in a realistic way. You definitely feel many different emotions reading her books! Highly recommended!
