Eve is the project manager for the new city hall, she has worked hard to get where she is. Harder then most being a female in the field without a proper degree. Hoping to get her name out there she is also the designer of the final draft. Or at least she had planed and hoped she would be until Matt Brison enters the scene.
Matt, an internationally known architect has been asked by his uncle the major if would come and work on the design plans for the new city hall, hoping he would modernize the building and move Halifax in a more forward direction.
Not knowing what he was getting himself into when he agreed to do so, a feisty, spirited "bully" with "hot chocolate" eyes was definitely not it. He definitely hadn't thought he would be remotely attracted to her, she is nothing at all what he typically looked for or is looking for in a potential wife and eventual mother of his future children he wanted to have. There is nothing domestic about Eve.
Eve has made mistakes in the past, ones that have completely changed how she trusts men, especially the handsome, charming,well educated ones, and Matt was definitely all three. She's been down that road before. She doesn't want to feel like she's lower or stupid, she doesn't want to be someones possession either.
I completely adored this story. It was cute and sweet and funny. Oh my how I giggled while reading this book. Author Paula Altenburg has done a marvelous job at creating these two characters.
I have one complaint to make, I wish it had been longer.
