My Review: 4 1/2 stars
I thought this was a really good book. Both Elise and Michael have done some growing and changing since they last saw each other five years ago. Elise is not the naive intern that Michael believed her to be, she is a confident, mature woman who knows what she's doing, and she does it very well. Michael is not the sweet, kind mentor that Elise remembered him as, he is in charge of the family business and needs her help to save it. He isn't afraid to roll up his sleeves and get the work done that needs to get done. I liked that both Michael and Elise assumed wrong things about each other in the past, but that in the here and now, they cleared up those assumptions and any lingering doubts as to what the other wanted. It is amazing how things can change in a week. But what a tumultuous week it was. There were a great many things going on for both Michael and Elise in both of their personal lives, as well as the business that they both had to save. I loved that Michael went after Elise when she left and apologized for things that he had said to her that were wrong. I also loved that they could work together so well, and figure out what and who was behind the problems with the business. I thought that they were very good together, and loved the ending. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next books in this series. Elizabeth brought everything together to make this a fantastic read in all ways.
