His other single siblings, Sierra, Brandon, and Pierce, arenít urging their brother to plan his wedding either because they know that with him out of the way, theyíll be next in their motherís line of fire.

When Morgan encounters beautiful Phoenix Banister, assistant to celebrated artist Andre Duval, he starts to reconsider his opinion about permanent relationships. Love has a greater power than all of Morganís ambitions, and despite his wishes, he canít fight the feelings he feels for Phoenix.

Even with her mind telling her ďnoĒ, Phoenix still falls for Morgan. Morgan is like no man she has ever known. He inspires her to feel and to dream of a tomorrow.

Morgan and Phoenix are strawberries and champagne, sweet and flavorful and at the same time, quite a kick to the senses. They are the perfect romantic duo. The longer is takes them to realize this is all the more, the readerís pleasure.

The Graysons are a lovable family. As usual, Rayís incomparable writing style reveals their flaws and their strengths in a clear and entertaining form. The Graysons are sure to leave a smile on your face and a longing in your heart for their next story.

If time is strapped and you read only one book this year, read this one and no other. If there can only be one, then it has to be the best, and this one is it.
