Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Petite but impulsive Brooke Welch went haywire when a careless heartbreaker got her kid sister pregnant, then up and disappeared. No way would the playboy evade his responsibility, even if Brooke had to kidnap him, hogtie him, and force him to be a father.

Trouble was, Brooke hijacked the wrong man! Worse, the drop-dead gorgeous hunk she held captive in a cabin proved to be Alex Bradshaw, her new boss, who was anonymously investigating crimes at his Quicksilver factory. Suddenly, Brooke was up to her ears in danger…and desire. Caught between a rock and, um, a hard place. And finding it—and Alex's arms—an all-too-perfect fit.
When Brooke’s kid sister becomes pregnant and the man to blame has gone missing, Brooke goes on a mission. She is going to find this playboy, kidnap him, and make him do the right thing. But once Brooke finds out she has kidnapped the wrong man, she isn’t sure what to do, but she doesn’t want Alex out of her sight either.

Even worse than kidnapping the wrong man, it turns out that Alex Bradshaw is Brooke’s new boss. Now Brooke isn’t sure if she will find the man who got her baby sister pregnant and she isn’t sure if she will still have a job. But more than that, she isn’t sure if she can keep her hands off Alex.

This story is full of laughter, suspense, lust, and compassion. Sheridon Smythe did a great job with both Alex and Brooke. One of my favorite parts of the story is what Brooke uses as her weapon to kidnap Alex. You’ll have to read the book to find out what it is. The only weakness I saw in the book was that Brooke’s baby sister, Dee, isn’t really mentioned in the book. And the whole reason why Brooke went out to find and kidnap Alex is because she believes he is the one who got her pregnant.

Most of the humor of the story comes when Brooke is being mean towards Alex or they are fighting about something. The chemistry between Brooke and Alex will keep you reading the story. Brooke always seems to be in a bad mood and getting into trouble; she needs Alex to keep her out of trouble, and to take care of other needs. It’s not really the best writing from Smythe, but it’s not lacking in the emotional pull between the two characters. She has nailed modern day romantic comedy on the head.
