To keep her job, a demure graphic artist must make sure her foundation's billionaire donor, a hard-driving tech mogul, stays under wraps for four days—in gossip-hungry Washington, DC. Too bad he has other plans—and is far too gorgeous to miss.
He looked past her, to the clock on the wall. “Still an hour before they'll bring us breakfast. You should go back to bed.”
She looked at him steadily. “My thoughts and feelings haven't changed.”
Suddenly, all his attention was directed at her. Even his gaze alone could make her hot.
“Mine either.” He took the half-full glass from her hand and downed the rest of the juice.
“Then come take it back.” He raised his eyebrows in clear challenge.
She rose to it. Scooping her hand up and over his belt, she pulled him close. Their lips met, their tongues, and it was last night all over again. Except better.
She tugged at his shirt, and it slipped free of his slacks. Finally, her palms touched skin, and she thrilled to the shiver they touched off in him.
His mouth possessed hers, and she gave him what he wanted, everything, willingly, wantonly. Excitement built behind her closed eyes and down her spine. Just kissing him made her wet.
He slid a palm over her hip, under the shirt of her pajamas, and her knees buckled. They sank slowly, him supporting her, to the plush carpet. The angle was wrong, and her mouth fell away from his.
His eyes were dark and large, his mouth so mobile, his breaths heavy. She'd done that. She smiled, despite her own heavy breathing.

I really enjoyed this story. From the cryptic synopsis I had my doubts and suspicions that it would be another Christian Grey, it is nothing like that!
I love Beau and May because they seem like your average run of the mill people just trying to get by in their world. They are strong, emotional, and humorous. I was snickering in some places and nearly in tears in a couple others.
I do think it needed a little more “fillers” to provide flow between some scenes. There were several places that just jumped from one thing to another and it had me back peddling to reread and make sure I didn’t miss something. A little bit more time making sure the stream line was smooth, especially in highly emotional places, would have made this a high rating read for me.
