Brian has his own business now. He is more mature than in Evan's book. He has quit smoking (some parts of the book you can almost see the airport movie quote "bad day to quit smoking"). He has the reputation of a loose cannon but he is trying to change this. When Candace comes into his business, he can only see the sunshine she brings with her. Brian has had a thing for her. They know each other and it's about time to get even better acquainted.
I liked this Ross brother better. He knows what he wants and he is not afraid to go for it. He was sweet to Candace which was a great heroine until the last third of the book. Not enough to annoy me but enough to want me to scream at her. Overall I liked this book more.
“It’s all right. But let’s put you on the hot seat. Ever been in love?”
I’m at least ninety-nine percent certain I am right now. Ohhh, that was a dangerous thought to entertain. And her mind returned it way too easily. So easily it could have rolled right off her tongue. “No. I mean, I’ve loved someone, but, um…I don’t think there can be true, unequivocal love unless that person loves you in return. If they don’t, it’s just…unfulfilled. Don’t you think?”
He was watching her now. “Any man you’re in love with who doesn’t love you back is a damn fool.”
She wanted to laugh out loud. If he only knew… “That’s sweet of you to say.”
