Official Blurb:

The boys are back, and Torey Hope is better than ever.
When Decker Morgan returns to Torey Hope, he has no time for love and distractions. Always in control, his loyalties lie with himself and his family. His only interest is putting down roots and expanding his family’s business.

Kate Turner had planned to leave Torey Hope after college, but she found that being there for her family took precedence. When she lands her dream job working for Decker at his family’s business, The Center+, she realizes that Torey Hope is where she’s supposed to be.
When Decker hires Kate she turns his world upside down. She’s brilliant, funny, beautiful, and completely off limits, due to Decker’s self-imposed rules concerning work and family. Kate knows a secret that will make their attraction for one another a little less taboo, but she needs to convince Decker to take a chance.

Decker has to decide if he’ll give in to a forbidden romance or keep his tight control firmly in hand. Kate is possibly his perfect girl, but unexpected chaos and havoc at work threaten to tear her away. 

Will he find the courage to let go or will he lose the only girl he’s ever wanted to keep close?
**This is a contemporary romance with suspenseful elements intended for readers age 18+ due to mature language, sexual situations, and violence. While there are no male/male sex scenes in this story, there are some detailed descriptions of male/male relationships

Decker is a heart-warming story about a man who comes home to help the family business.  Decker is a business controlling and goal oriented man when it comes to his business and his life. He takes stock only in his and his family needs. While he has an overwhelming need to plant roots in Torrey Hope with his family, he doesn’t take stock in looking for someone to plant those roots down with. He has rules when it comes to women and the number one of them is not mix business and pleasure. So the question remains.  Why did Decker hire someone he’s fiercely attracted to be his assistant manager when his rules say he can’t have her? He’s so screwed.

Kate’s character really resonated with me. She like most girls want to wander far from home and experience life away from their hometowns, only to find that they cannot leave their family.  Even though family takes precedence when it comes to the town she settles into, she still manages to get the job she’s always dreamed about especially with a hot boss like Decker. She knows his rules about dating, but she cannot help feeling a strong attraction to him. She knows he wants her, but he’s too controlling to break his own rules. Yet, the little secret she has been holding back on might just change his mind.

A.D. Ellis has delivered yet another brilliant addition to the Torrey Hope series. Every new addition to this series trumps the previous release. It’s a very rare thing for me as a seasoned reader to say that Ellis has created one of the best and dare I saw nearly perfect book series.  Her characters have this sense of familiarity that I love when reading a contemporary romance novel. They seem like normal people that you could see on the street every single day in the heartland. Even the supporting characters fit neatly into the story with the main characters.  The story lines are engaging and move forward at just the right pace to keep readers satisfied. She also throws in an out of nowhere curve ball into her romance stories that only adds to the increasing amount of love I have for this series. Fans of romantic suspense will eat Decker up!
