Picture Perfect (Limelight #2) by Elisabeth Grace
NA Contemporary Romance
Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.
Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.
But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?

*Can be read as a stand alone.
It sucks to realize you have great chemistry with someone, and we’re talking AMAZING chemistry, only to find out they’re off limits. That’s the situation Skye and Landon find themselves in after sharing a very brief but unforgettable moment of crazy passion, before realizing that she’s the new assistant he’s hired. Talk about awkward! But really, awkward isn’t the right word, because it was more like business as usual turned “How the hell are we going to stop from touching each other?,” and hot damn they had the blood racing through my veins every time that thought took over for them!
Let’s take a step back though, because this story was far more than just scorching sexual tension (even though that was one of the things I loved most!!). Skye was a strong, intelligent woman who had finally gotten her wakeup call when it came to her now ex boyfriend. He was a jealous jerk and had officially pushed her limits when he got violent over their breakup, so she was happy to have her mind otherwise occupied by thoughts of Landon. Well, other than the fact that he was someone she couldn’t have thanks to him being her boss. And he didn’t look at her like that anymore anyway, right? Yeaaaaah, not so much. Landon (whose mind we get to peek into thanks to dual POV), was just as taken by Skye as she was him, and his control was an ever-thinning rubber band waiting to snap. When they were forced to spend many hours together working on nabbing the next big client for the PR firm, Skye and Landon had plenty of time to get to know each other well; and plenty of time to finally give in to what they knew was meant to be.
I absolutely loved Skye and Landon’s characters, these were two truly captivating people who I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know. Add to that how intense and amazing they were together, plenty of chill-inducing drama, and emotional ups and downs that grab your heart from start to stop, and this was one read that I hated to put down! I’ve had this book on my review list for awhile now, and I wish I could have enjoyed it sooner, but now I’m excited to read more of this series and more from the talented Elisabeth Grace!
She must have made an impression on him because he stopped to say his goodbyes before we continued toward the reception area. Hell, she’d made an impression on me when we’d first met, but his reaction didn’t include sporting a rock-hard erection. ~Loc 246
I knew eventually I would have to face him, but I didn’t have time to deal with his bullshit right now. I had an empire to build and a sweet little secretary to get out or my head—the top one and the bottom one. ~Loc 470
He laughed in return, his chocolate eyes shimmering with mirth. “Still, three inches can’t be easy to take.”
“I’ve taken more before.”
“I’m sure you have.”
Wait. Were we still talking about high heels here? ~Loc 1180
It wouldn’t surprise me if people took him for an actor or model, being that we were in L.A. If the public had any idea of the orgasm he could give a girl, they’d think he was a porn star. ~Loc 1723
