Temporary Truce by Rachel Randall

Between a cock and a hard case.

The rivalry between Caroline Kildaire and Hilary Swift is as infamous in London legal circles as their rumoured affair. And while a professional partnership would make them unbeatable, attempts to work together always turn to personal warfare.

With only forty-eight hours to coax a temporary truce, young facilitator Adam Bloom surrenders to their sexually-charged tension. He's risking it all to be the lucky man in the middle, hoping he doesn't get caught in the crossfire first.

If there's one thing the hot-tempered lawyers can agree on, it's that Adam's a tempting reward for cooperation. But in bending over for peace, he's sparked their next battle: who gets to the top.

This isn’t the first book I have read by this author and certainly won’t be the last. Written in the first person from Adam’s pov this is a hot, fantastical tale of a couple of hard-nosed business associates sent away to learn how to get along in the boardroom.

Adam’s job is to facilitate that ‘getting along’!

Caroline and Hilary (male), his two clients, are wild and raucous, determined and highly sexual. They fight hard physically, mentally and emotionally and when that is all transferred to sexual energy and Adam gets to play too, this makes for a steamy, sensual read that I found impossible to put down.

Best Bits: Caroline’s whole personality was so sublimely wicked in a teasing, sexy way it was delightful, as a reader, to meet her.

Adam’s fun in the hot-tub!

“The hand shaped splash of red paint curving over his arse was evidence enough that the carnage had already begun.”

Verdict: You can’t go wrong with this one if you like lots of sex, an unusual plot and sassy characters. Temporary Truce is one for you.
