Buttoned-up financial consultant Grace Song lives life by her own strict rules. Spontaneity leads to chaos. Always play it safe. So when she shares a Manhattan cab with a handsome stranger and they accidentally swap cell phones, her first instinct is to track him down and put things right. Stay on track. Stick with the plan.
But when beyond-gorgeous Zack Camden answers the door draped only in a towel, Grace is suddenly inspired to ditch her rules for a day…and a night. Indulging in one delicious encounter with a perfect stranger is just the break she needs. But one turns into two, then three mind-blowing nights—and soon Grace is in danger of breaking the biggest rule of them all—never fall in love….
What would you do if a sexy stranger just happens to share his cab with you? That same question runs through the mind of our heroine, Grace Song. Straight-laced Grace has spent her entire life living by her rules. The moment she accepts Zack's offer to share his cab, her rules go out the window. When a mix-up leads Grace to Zack's hotel room, all bets are off. Can she resist the attraction that is pulling her towards him? Will she be able to say no to Zack's offer of one night filled with passion? Her mind may be saying no, but her body is ready to break the rules.
I am in love with Harlequin's Cosmo Red-Hot Reads. They are short romances with a fabulous combination of sexy and sweet. I'd have to say that Breaking All Her Rules is my favorite so far. It was adorable! I loved both Grace and Zack. For a novella, both characters were incredibly deep, Ever since Grace was younger, she's forced herself to follow very strict rules because, in her eyes, success equals the being the perfect daughter. Zack, on the other hand, is leery about the success that comes along with his sculptures. It has forced him into a very public career and, since he's been surviving alone for so many years, Zack isn't so sure if he's ready to open his heart. Together, Grace and Zack slowly form a bond that helps the other heal. They both start looking at their lives in a different light and begin to want more. I loved watching their relationship develop from two total strangers sharing a cab to tender lovers on the verge of forever. Not to mention, the banter and one-liners that fly between Zack and Grace were hysterical. I loved how much they fumbled and stumbled after their first night together. They were nervous and excited all at once. It was great. I really loved Breaking All Her Rules. It was a short, but wonderful journey that left me swooning.

Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard.
