This was a sweet and funny romantic book filled with angst, passion, humor, zest for life and definite drama.
Nicola and Max have a lot of history together, a past and not all of it good- try them being exs . Max shows up on Nicola’s doorstep to offer her a job at his performing theater and she’s just desperate enough to take him up on that position to temporarily forget their past.
Neither of them are wanting to go back to their romantic past so they focus only on their working relationship but the chemistry between them is so intense and electric. Also add in the characters that are working with them in the Shakespeare Theater which involve drama and angst in getting the theater open and you have a combustible combination.
Nicola and Max are lovers who are living out their relationship on stage like A Midsummer Nights Dream and this is their 2nd chance romance of two former lovers who are now co workers . I love this story and I am rooting for the sassy and independent heroine and the alpha and dashing hero. The building pressure between the MC and how they tried to resist their connection and just work together and how they knew they belonged together but fought it for so long , that did tend to drag the book out but it still was a good story. I loved the ending of the story; Max and Nicole were a fantastic couple and I hope to read about them again someday.
My rating: 4.4 stars ****
