Work Me Up is a fast-paced, wonderfully written romance. The book is novella length, but there is so much emotion and fun packed into those pages. Logan is such an endearing character with his complete devotion to his daughter that you can't help but fall for him, and Nicole has plenty of sass and a call it as she sees it attitude that keeps Logan on his toes. They are so good together and the author does a fantastic job of conveying the sexual tension between them, even when they are squaring off in disagreement.
This second book by Burke is more on the sweeter side than the hilarity of her first book, but it is just as good and further shows her talent. Work Me Up is an engaging tale with the perfect mix of sweet and sexy, endearing characters, and witty dialogue. This author is fast becoming a favorite for this reader and I'll be anxiously awaiting whatever she has in store for us next.
Sienna had been with Ben eight years and they were engaged. But Ben was married to his job and slowly Sienna seemed to mean less and less to Ben and she broke the engagement three months earlier. Kylie is Sienna’s friend and she mentions Sienna going to the soft opening of the new luxury resort called the Bandicoot Cove.

While at the Cove Sienna runs into her HS crush- who she hasn’t seen in twelve years-Josh who is a tech expert there. Then Sienna discovers she still has a spark for Josh and this time round he was interested in her. Although she does find out most all of Josh’s HS fantasies included Sienna. But then Ben her ex fiance shows up at the island and wants to win Sienna back and become engaged again. But Sienna doesn’t want to just walk away from Josh.
I liked this story. It was a novella so a quick read. But it had a lot of action. I loved Josh and how carefree he was and Ben for how sorry he was for taken Sienna for granted so much and that he had hurt her. I did like the plot but not too much into menage but understood here. I did wish was longer But I did like the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
