Nathan Rush is a small town man who has never dreamed of a bigger life.
Until, that is, the only surviving heiress of America's richest family lands on his doorstep. Nathan is the groundskeeper at Hollis House, the Valon family's upstate New York mansion just outside of Harlin Falls, the quiet, sleepy town he was raised in. He's an honest, hard-working man who wants nothing more than a beer and a hockey game on TV at the end of the night. Except, when the ice princess starts to melt, Nathan pictures his future in a way he never has before.
Camille Valon's life has taken place in the spotlight.
Until, that is, her parents are murdered in a mysterious Christmas Day fire. Now all she wants is to flee the prying news cameras and slow-moving investigation. She's an upper crust ice princess who is good at keeping everyone at arm's length. Grief-stricken and still fearing for her life, Camille arrives at her family's safe haven estate with secrets and a chip on her shoulder. What she didn't count on was the kind, ridiculously attractive man who caters to her every need.
As the months go by, and an impending threat grows closer to discovering Camille's location, the line between employer and employee becomes dangerously blurred. Nathan and Camille could be each other's saving graces, if only they'd put aside their visions of a perfect life and take the chance fate has put right in front of them.

I'm not going to lie, the cover is what drew me in for this book. This was my first Carrie Aarons book and it didn't disappoint. I was sucked in from page one. I was curious where this book where going to go once I read the blurb. This is a standalone, so you if you're like, you don't need to read the rest in the series prior to starting this one.
Camille and Nathan has to be some of new favorite characters. Their attraction was one that would be considered forbidden. What started out as just wanting to be friends turned into something so much more.
After a tradegy struck Camille's family, she found her safe at Hollis House, a house that was once her favorite until they stopped going when she was younger. Insert Nathan, the head of the staff who has kept the place running. He shouldn't be attracted to her, but oh is he ever.
I loved watching them fall for each other. The passion, the strength and the love they had was perfect. I can't wait to read more by Carrie!
