Decidedly Off Limits
This was my first time reading a book by Stina Lindenblatt and I found that I really enjoyed her dual point of writing style as well as her friendly characters. Kelsey's character was adorable because she has been crushing on her brothers best friend and could never act on it because she seemed unaware of how obviously attracted Trent was to her, however I felt that at times her character was conflicting because she could be free spirited at one minute and serious the next. Trent's character had potential which was not explored because he was just depicted of a workaholic player who has a fear of commitment. The chemistry between Trent and Kelsey was sweet and romantic, but at the same time it was very hot. I also enjoyed the secondary characters of all their friends. I did wish that the book had a bit more drama and that the characters had a bit more depth. Overall this was a light and sweet romantic read and I would possibly read the rest of the series.
Trent Salaway in one of San Francisco's most eligible bachelor who is a highly successful portfolio manager, a workaholic and definitely a ladies man who has everything he wants except one.
Kelsey Quaid is a physical therapist who was dumped by her ex fiance because she always came second to his work. This is the exact reason that even though she has been crushing on her brothers best friend for most of her life, there is no way she can go there because she cannot go from one workaholic to another.
Before Kelsey's brother leaves for a SEAL mission he ask Trent for one favor which is to ensure that his sister does not date any assholes. As Trent tries to do this he and Kelsey begin to spend more time together. Sparks begin to fly and the next thing you know, things are getting physical between them. Now Trent has to decide what to do with the woman he is falling for especially since her brother can take him down easily. Kelsey would have to decide if Trent is just another workaholic or if he is decidedly off limits.
