Drew Robson is in deep trouble. The family steel business, started by his grandfather, is about to go under. Mismanaged by his father, who embezzeled money from the company and fled the country, Drew’s legacy is one crisis away from bankruptcy. The last thing he needs is some hot-shot public relations person who is insisting that he honor the contract his dad signed! What Robson Steel needs is a miracle!

Jade Morrow is determined to show the steel-mill owner that not only can her firm help pull him ahead of his creditors, they can actually improve his sales and public image. Jade simply doesn’t take “no” for an answer. She offers to prove her abilities by accompanying Drew on the annual over-the-road sales trip. Three weeks visiting customers should be more than enough time to show him what she can do!

The last thing either of these workaholics want, or need, is for lust to take over. The mutual attraction that they feel is unwelcome and completely unethical. Watching them circle each other like wary wolves until passion sweeps them away is very entertaining. The dialog is sharp and sassy. They are strong and opinionated, but very likeable.

Working It is a fine example of oppositing forces coming together. And boy, do they ever come together! This Blaze really lives up to the series name! And the ending has an extra twist that is very satisfying.
