Everett and Emma are at odds right from the start, as Everett gets under Emma s skin with both his attitude about her less than glamorous job as well as his attractive physique Then Emma is offered the opportunity to be closer to Everett Brewer than she ever dreamed possible, as his PA Although this position requires Emma to do some things that are against her moral code, she eventually has to succumb and accepts the job, though she is determined not to give her boss any valuable information Everett is just as determined not to let Emma into his life any than is necessary, even though he is as attracted to her as she us to him He is trying desperately to keep anyone from finding out his secret, as well as lead his football team to the championship.
This a great story and a must read for any Mickey Miller fan, especially if you ve read the story of Everett s brother Maddox but this book can be read without having read the first in the series I m especially looking forward to Jocko s story in the next book.
Secrets have a way of ruining lives.
Everett Brewer s been living with a secret for than a decade that affects his personal and professional life He s seen as mean and brooding both on and off the field and even took a year off to try to get his head back on straight while dealing with his anger and depression.
Emma Foster just needs a job Out of college and helping to care for her recently widowed pregnant sister and niece, when the opportunity of a lifetime with the paycheck to match drops in her lap, it s hard to say no She s not comfortable spying on her boss, but she doesn t really have to report anything back to the team owners, right It s no big deal until things get heated between them.
The closer they get, the they both realize they need to share their secrets When Emmett reveals his, Emma knows she holds the key to his career in her hands, not that she would ever tell anyone But, when the truth about her secret comes out, can Everett ever see past why she took the job, or will their budding romance be done just like his career might be when the team believes he s involved in a scandal that s far from the real secret he holds The Hold Out was serious than other Mickey Miller books, and I really enjoyed this change Both Everett and Emma have big in depth back stories which really gives insight into their personalities and actions While it is hot and spicy, there is lots of drama and angst for these characters both as individuals and as a couple as well Their struggles made their story and romance what it was 4 stars
e to keep an eye on him , one employed by the Grizzlies and one that Everett won t have authority to terminate, since Everett has gone through previous PA s like tissues Imagine his surprise when, who shows up at his house but the sassy hotdog vendor who gave him a piece of her mind and put him in his place.
I loved Emma and Everett and was cheering for them from beginning to end both their banter and their chemistry are delightfully appealing Emma is strong and competent, and she doesn t back down for anyone, including a hotshot football player And Everett, bless his heart, he may be grouchy with a bark worse than his bite, but he s just been waiting for a girl like Emma, without even realizing it.
Miller s work is always great fun to read, and each book seems to be better than the last, so I eagerly immersed myself in Everett and Emma s world You ll find an engaging storyline, perfectly imperfect and innately loveable characters, just the right amounts of humor and heart, and a heat level that will make you blush If you re looking for a book that will tug at your heart, tickle your funny bone and have you asking, Is it warm in here look no farther I read a pre published version of this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide feedback and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source.
