KIRKUS REVIEW

Reid Griffith and Naomi Starr are married to their jobs, but a mutually beneficial relationship quickly blossoms both in the office and in the bedroom.

Reid's moving company, Vets on the Go!, is a small but successful enterprise that quickly takes off after his brother, Cash, is caught on camera saving a kid and foiling a robbery. Reid has always been concerned with responsibility and doing the right thing as a son, a brother, a soldier, and now as the owner of a business that helps vets adjust to civilian life. Naomi, of Starr PR, is managing on her own after having left her former job and a relationship with her boss when her success proved a threat to both. After seeing footage of Cash's heroic rescue, Naomi sets up a meeting and offers her services to Reid, whom she is immediately attracted to. While dealing with the chemistry between them and their respective workloads, Reid and Naomi are also juggling outside complications. Reid's mother passes away, and he and Cash are left to deal with the practicalities of death as well as their grief. Naomi is forced to work alongside her ex-boyfriend/boss when they're both hired by a firm she's hungry to work with. The sex is hot enough, and Harte is to be applauded for an attempt to normalize safer sex and good communication about boundaries, but those are by far the highlights of the book. The conflicts are a little superficial and either easily or unsatisfactorily resolved.

There's enough plot and strong writing to make it readable but not enough substance to make it memorable.
