❤ OPPOSITES? Oh, yeah. ATTRACT? Absolutely❤
She’s all work and no play. He’s an expert at fun. Their romance is the game of their lives.
Paul Monroe needs a temporary assistant while his is on maternity leave. Not an unusual situation for a small business owner… Except his savvy assistant knows Paul and his antique toy appraisal business require someone special. He’s a charmer, all right. But not everyone appreciates his playful approach to life.
He needs a perfect fit.
Bette Wharton is all in to make her temp agency a success by matching the right temp with each client. She’ll work as long and hard as it takes to follow her plan to success. So when she’s hit by a shockingly high turnover rate for temps sent to Paul’s business, she rolls up her suit sleeves to get to the heart of the problem.
She needs to dance through imperfections.
But what Paul wants is to spend time with her – in his version of forced proximity, as he expands the definition of on-the-job to dinners, pumpkin shopping, introducing her to his circle of friends, and more.
The no-nonsense businesswoman might have met her match when she squares off against Paul’s determination to teach her about letting her hair down. Especially when she discovers a wounded heart beneath all his fun.
Can Paul and Bette get their timing right and find a perfect fit to dance together through the twists and turns of imperfections?

Loved this love story! Funny, sweet, frustrating, and sexy, it gives you all the feels! Well written with great characters, you will totally enjoy the story of Paul and Bette!
It was enjoyable read.
A marvelously well written tale of two opposites, both in taught ambition as well as character, working things out so that they can plan a future. Once started, the book was never put down!
I enjoyed this book even though it was completely predictable.
