As close friends and coworkers, attorney Zoe Riva and tech genius Connor Ashton know they can never get involved. 


Until a scooter accident lands Zoe in Connor's arms—and his overnight custody—and she starts to see a man she's never seen before. With her career and her heart on the line, Zoe can't afford to take any chances. But when combustible chemistry takes over, even the smartest people in the room can make the biggest of mistakes

Inara Scott is a new to me author, and I didn't read the first book in this series, but I feel like you didn't really need to. The couple in that book do appear in this one, so I might go back and read their book at a later date. This book focuses on Zoe and Connor, good friends who have hidden how they feel about each other because of the complicated nature of Zoe being one of lawyers for his company. If you like both friends to lovers and forbidden romances, this one might be for you.

The friendship that starts in this one really is what made me believe in Zoe and Connor. But my heart totally broke for Connor, because he is a guy that self-sabotages because he's so afraid of getting hurt. Oh, poor guy! The two start hanging out with each other more because Zoe is trying to woo a client who is very "boys club" so she wants to be able to speak his language. In exchange, Connor wants Zoe to spy on his mother for him and make sure she is not going to blow her house up with her science experiments.

Can we talk about the GPGs or Geriatric Physicist Grannies?!? Connor's mother and her group of fellow retired scientists who play bridge together call themselves this. They are kind of the best! Especially Clara who has no shame and makes everything about sex. I loved that thirsty old lady. LOL! They are all very eccentric, but I so totally loved them and they made the plot of this super interesting.

The whole forbidden romance thing was fine for me, because techincally Connor wasn't her client, but it seemed like there was a big deal made about it in the beginning about how they can't get involved but by the end it wasn't really an issue at all. It just felt like it was built up to be a huge thing, but at the end when Connor and Zoe were fighting about what they were doing, it's such a non-issue. It felt like that could have been handled better. 

Despite a couple issues with the book, I did enjoy it and thought it was a fun friends to lovers book.
