Silver Tesdal has a head for business and a mouth made for kissing, and banker Drew Lovato has his eye on both. But ever since he was dumb enough to let her go, she’s kept him at a distance. When the bank turns her down for a loan, Drew sees a double opportunity—he can finance her brilliant, unique idea to rock Happily Inc’s wedding industry and win back her trust.
Despite her reputation, Silver’s not as tough as she seems. Losing Drew nearly destroyed her. Still, his kisses are as tempting as his offer to invest in her business. If she can’t quite get over him, maybe she should get under him and knock him out of her system once and for all.
But her best laid plans begin to unravel as Silver finds herself falling even harder than when they were high school sweethearts. Which means that she’ll have to come clean about the secret she’s been hiding from him for years—and risk losing him forever.
Silver and Drew were once a item. Silver let Drew go when she thought she needed to. She's moved on or so she thought. Now Drew is back in town working at his families bank and he wants to get to know Silver again. I just didn't feel the chemistry on this one. They didn't seem to click as a couple. I'm not sure why. There wasn't really much conflict either. If they spent more time talking to each other instead of in their heads the story would have ended sooner. It was a OK read but not a favorite for me of the series.
