Live each day as if it were your last. Worry only about yourself. Work hard and never, ever fall in love. That’s Olivia Buchanan’s motto and she stands by it every day.
Feisty, headstrong and confident, recent graduate Liv is fighting to succeed in the male dominated field she has chosen as her career. As an architect for her best friend's father's respected London based company, her chance to shine and become recognised comes when she lands the prestigious account for GO Sports and Leisure.
Armed with her plans and determination, Liv is ready to deliver the presentation of her life. That is, until he walks in. The mysterious personal trainer from the gym. The only man to have ever made her heart flutter. But he isn't all he seems.
When MMA fighter, Nathan Oakes offers Liv a business proposition to join him in Southern France, she’s left questioning his motives and wonders if she should refuse. She’s also equally intrigued by the prospect of what the trip could do for her career.
Liv has no time for a relationship. Nate doesn’t want one. When forced to live side by side, feelings are stretched and emotions are battled. Can they keep their professional and personal lives separate, preventing them from falling into something they both need to avoid?

Liv has one thing on her mind…Her career as an architect, that is until she is subjected to cruel comments in the coffee shop regarding her weigh and something snaps. After talking to her best friend Adam she decides to join him at the gym. Liv doesn’t have the best first experience and is left feeling a little embarrassed to say the least.
Retired MME Fighter Nathan Oakes owns the Gym and he is sex on a stick. Nate watches Liv from across the room and instantly knows she is different. After witnessing her mishap with the equipment he tries to help her.
Liv is fighting to prove her worth in a male dominant work role and has to put on the best presentation of her life if she wants to prove herself. Only when she enters the board room….she finds herself staring into his dreamy, come to bed eyes.
After pulling up her big girl pants she is finally able to complete the presentation and everyone seems pleased. That is until she finds herself alone with Nate and he makes a proposition to her that even she cant refuse….He wants to give her Free membership at his Gym and b become her personal trainer.
They soon become friends and there is a constant pull there between them both but they keep pulling back from one another.
Nate keeps the propositions coming…Now asking Liv to join him in France to make one of his life long dreams become a reality. Whilst in France Nate is coming out of Retirement to have another showdown with his rival.
Whilst in France it soon becomes apparent that all is not as it seems, Nate finds himself not only fighting his rival but fighting for his heart and against his past demonds. Liv finds herself wanting a lot more than the career she first thought was all that mattered, she want this man in front of her and she will have him any way how.
This story took the reader on the beautiful journey with Liv and Nate and for me they would make your perfect power couple. Liv’s character is very believable and real, she is driven, curvy, hot headed and very passionate. Nate is hot, sexy, intense and very focused Their story is definitely not one to be missed, filled with passion and real emotions it will have you sucked in from the beginning to end.
EJ Shortall was born and raised in a suburb of London, England where she currently still resides.
Having worked in education for the better part of 12 years, EJ decided a change was needed. Following a moment of inspiration, she decided to put pen to paper not expecting anything to come from the few words she had. Soon those few words turned into her first novel, Silver Lining. Not content with just writing the one, she continued with book two and then three, and has many, many more ideas just waiting to be written.
She has always enjoyed reading, but found it was mostly just a holiday extravagance. Then she discovered a certain worldwide best seller, and her passion was reignited. Reading quickly became an obsession and she couldn’t devour books fast enough. The books on her shelves and reading devices range from sweet, Young Adult romances, to smouldering erotic encounters. If pushed for an answer she would say that sexy rock star romances are her favourite.
Aside from reading and writing, EJ also enjoys amateur photography, playing around with graphics and cake decorating.
“I am on one amazing roller coaster ride at the moment. I have met so many new and wonderful people, discovered new music gems to integrate into my stories, and learned so many new skills. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me.”
