Synopsis from Goodreads
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s second novel in her Romancing Manhattan series delivers the sizzling story of a playboy who’s vowed never to commit until he meets the one woman he’s tempted to break his promise for.
Quinn Cavanaugh doesn’t do anything halfway. He drives fast, works hard, and plays even harder. And the word “commitment” doesn’t exist in his dictionary. He has no plans of settling down with one woman for he needs to be free to move on to the next big thing—whatever or whoever that may be. Each party knows the score going into it, and it’s all been working out fine. That is until a sexy new colleague enters the scene.
Sienna Hendricks doesn’t give much thought to Quinn and the revolving door leading to his bedroom. She’s way too picky about who she shares her time or her body with and screwing around with a colleague isn’t part of her plan either. Quinn doesn’t intimidate her. And unlike most other members of her sex, she doesn’t melt into a puddle at his feet whenever he’s near. Most importantly, she has no issues telling him no.
But for a man who has the world at his feet, Quinn isn’t accustomed to being rejected. And he’s not about to let that change—no matter how persistent Sienna is. To his surprise, Sienna is everything he thought he’d never find. Pursuing her, and convincing her he’s changed, is going to be the biggest challenge of his life. One he’s completely up for….
Sienna and Quinn meet under very unusual circumstances whereby Sienna is blindsided by the stranged attending the reading of her beloved grandfathers will and throwing their family into a tailspin as a result.
Sienna and Quinn become opposing counsel on a case 100 years old involving part of her grandfather’s estate – a city park. While the park is a focal point of the community it is situated within it is also a prime piece of real estate and as such worth millions for property development. It is ownership of the park that has come into question and resulted in the necessity of Quinn and Sienna working together to unearth proof of ownership within Sienna’s grandfather’s mountains of paperwork.
The chemistry between Sienna and Quinn simmers below the surface while Sienna battles her emotions regarding the threat to her family’s legacy.
Working side by side and spending a lot of time together serves to ignite more than just a physical connection between Sienna and Quinn. I loved how Sienna prioritized a work/life balance and the creative outlets she had for her emotions. Being with Sienna and witnessing the way in which she is able to make time for more than just work has Quinn re-evaluating his own life.
The developing relationship between Sienna and Quinn is the main focus of All It Takes along with the character development with regard to the quality of life, there are a few surprises in store with regards to the case that brought Sienna and Quinn together and could well test the strength of their blossoming relationship!!!!!
