He was never supposed to be mine…

Nico Wright hates me because of my sister’s actions. I hate him because of how he makes me feel. I’m all twisted up with attraction, longing, and a large dose of shame.

When I find out he’s the architect I need to help me get the old theater turned into a proper dance studio, I have no choice but to use his designs to bring my vision to reality. As I spend with Nico, I realize he’s the only one who understands how much I ache over losing my prima ballerina position at the Boston Ballet.

He, too, had his dreams shattered by people who claimed to love him. Just like me.

I’m learning the real Nico. He cares too much. Unfortunately, I can’t let him fall for me, the younger sister of his ex-fiancée who already cost him his job and his reputation.

Daring Draftsman is an enemies to lovers/workplace romance inspired by British Bedmate.

My Review:

Daring Draftsman is the third book in The Wright Family Series. I am happy to be able to say that I have enjoyed reading all of the books in this series. Each story has its own set of characters. Each with their own story to tell and great stories they are. Each character has their own hurt and pain that they are suffering with. Each book pulls on the old heart strings.

Daring Draftsman is Cassia’s and Nico’s story. Cassia is going through a rogue time at the moment. Cassia is a ballerina. Being a ballerina has been a dream of Cassia almost all her life. But when she breaks her leg she loses her position as a prima ballerina with the Boston Ballet. Cassia decides to open up her very own dance studio.

Everything is going great until her sister Amanda comes for a visit. Cassia has not had anything to do with her sister since she caught her in bed with her ex-boyfriend. Cassia does agree to meet her sister for a drink.

At the bar, Cassia lays eyes on this hot dude who is there alone. At first, they seem to be hitting off well until he learns who her sister is. Amanda is Nico’s ex-fiancée. Once he learns who she is Nico turns into a different man as he has not gotten over what Amanda put him through. Nico doesn’t know all the things that Amanda has done to Cassia if he did would he treat her as he did?

Cassia left the bar that night hoping never to see Nico again but her wish was not to be as he is the one person she needs to help remodel her new dance studio. She was ready to walk out and forget the whole thing but Nico is the one who wrote up the plans for her new studio. Plans that she loved very much.

The more time Cassia and Nico spend together the more they get to know each other. They soon learn that they have more in common than they would ever have guessed and that most of their problems exist for the same reason or person.

Cassia’s and Nico’s stories were just as good if not better than the first two stories in The Wright Family Series. Once I heard about Nico’s story I couldn’t wait to read it. Daring Draftsman pulled me into its world with the first word.

There were some pretty big twists that kept me glued to the pages. I never saw these twists coming either. They took me by surprise although I don’t know why. Oh, man, I should have seen it a mile off but I didn’t. Of course, that is what makes a great writer when you can’t see it coming, right?

I highly recommend Daring Draftsman to all those romantic fans out there. Come grab your copy of Daring Draftsman today!
