Bryn James can’t take much more. Smart, sexy Matthew DeLuca is everything she wants in a man, but he’s also her boss—the youngest, hottest vineyard owner in the Napa Valley—and he doesn’t see her as anything more than his shy assistant. That’s all about to change. Armed with a hot new look and an attitude to match, Bryn is determined to catch Matt’s eye… professionalism be damned.
With his winery’s grand reopening approaching, Matt is trying to stay focused, but Bryn is suddenly making it very difficult. He’s always thought her prim demeanor effortlessly sexy, but Matt can’t deny that her transformation is jaw-dropping …and going to make it very difficult to keep his hands to himself.
But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he’ll be faced with the biggest risk of his career—and his heart. Can he convince her—and himself—that this might just be more than a no-strings office affair?

Ahhh yeah. I've got a damn goofy grin on my face over these two. Murphy put together another delightful romance that was just...fun to be a part of. With wonderful characters and a little bit of drama she had me enjoying the heck out of Bryn and Matt as they navigated the dicey waters of an office romance and pasts that wouldn't let them go.
Bryn and Matt. Okay. It's another Billionaire and not so well off heroine story. BUT! It's sweet. And charming and the two were just great. Individually and together. Matt's just taken over a winery and Bryn is his new assistant. Matt, he's...a good guy. He doesn't flaunt his assets and really cares about the people around him and is just down to earth and a hard worker. And Bryn is one dedicated and loyal employee that's totally smitten with him. Thankfully, he's pretty smitten with her too.
Bryn James. Miss James, she of the intoxicating sent that makes my head swim and my cock hard.I enjoyed watching them walk that line between being coworkers but wanting more. They both have some insecurities and things they're dealing with which I liked. And I LOVED their inner thoughts. They're just natural and seem like every day people which was refreshing. They have some nice chemistry too and while most of the novella is just sexual tension building once things finally kick off it's passionate and steamy.
All in all, a nice little novella that brought the trilogy to a close. Fun romance, awesome characters, visits from the previous heroines and heroes and just a good time all around.
