A forbidden, secret affair proves that all’s fair in love and science—from New York Times bestselling author Ali Hazelwood.

Rue Siebert might not have it all, but she has enough: a few friends she can always count on, the financial stability she yearned for as a kid, and a successful career as a biotech engineer at Kline, one of the most promising start-ups in the field of food science. Her world is stable, pleasant, and hard-fought. Until a hostile takeover and its offensively attractive front man threatens to bring it all crumbling down.

Eli Killgore and his business partners want Kline, period. Eli has his own reasons for pushing this deal through—and he’s a man who gets what he wants. With one burning exception: Rue. The woman he can’t stop thinking about. The woman who's off-limits to him.

Torn between loyalty and an undeniable attraction, Rue and Eli throw caution out the lab and the boardroom windows. Their affair is secret, no-strings-attached, and has a built-in deadline: the day one of their companies will prevail. But the heart is risky business—one that plays for keeps.


  • Pretty good

    By Ty4456
    Overall I did enjoy this read, it wasnt too slow or anything. I didnt like how unreachable the main character was, she was in such denial that she could ever be with him and it kind of put a sour twist on all the happy moments that came before acceptance.
  • interesting

    she really said erotic romance! i wasn’t sure how much i liked it but i also couldn’t put it down
  • Disappointing

    By sdjfnk
    The female protagonist accurately assumes she is awkward and boring; and sadly, so is the plot. Author attempted to integrate a few key issues, but their impact was smothered by other, overly drawn out plot points.
  • Enjoyed the style of writing

    Read in one sitting
  • Very very sexy

    By Ctrinh225
    Different from her other books. Very erotic but still have a storyline.
  • She’s done it again

    By ShayGI1981$
    Hazelwood has the ability to write characters that have immense physical chemistry but the romance still feels like a slow burn. This is her at the top of her game and one of the best books she’s written.
