Picture Perfect (Limelight #2)
by Elisabeth Grace
A New Adult Contemporary Romance
Released on March 2014
Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.
Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.
But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?

Skye is ready to move forward in her life–especially now that she has ended things with her boyfriend. Even though she’s been in the spotlight as the daughter’s mayor, she wants to weave her own path career-wise, so she packs up her things, moves from her parent’s house and starts a job as an assistant. Two weeks in the job and she’s loving it. All that’s left now is to meet her boss and hope he’s as great as everyone’s said he is.
And great he is! Handsome, confident and with a great head for business, Landon is the very man she can’t resist but the one she must stay away from.
Landon doesn’t ‘ink his pen in the company’s fountain’ but he can’t deny that Skye pushes all his lust-buttons and then some. Regardless, his main focus is expanding his business and he needs his assistant to help make it happen since he’s seen how her well-practiced charm has paid off.
But fate is a sneaky bitch and won’t let them go about their ‘business’ without smudging some of that company ink after hours.
Elisabeth Grace does it again! With interesting and complex characters that complemented each other both personally and business-wise, she managed to bring about a touching yet sexy read that kept me reading in one sitting.
I have to say, I loved Landon. Sexy, confident and smart he had all the attributes that made for a great lead. Add to that the fact that he was caring and understanding and I could not resist my swooning.
Good thing too that I liked Skye as a partner for him. I felt like I could relate to her instantly because although she was brought up in the limelight and with money, she was down-to-earth, hard working and had great integrity. What I liked most about her was that she was not selfish. Underneath all that composed exterior laid a heart of gold with needs and dreams just as any woman out there.
And don’t even get me started on chemistry! Pffft, that first encounter alone was H-O-T! Whenever those two got together? *fans herself*. But that’s as much as I will say about that. You just need to take my word for it or experience it for yourself.
The plus side to that chemistry was the connection Landon and Skye shared. Although subtle initially, their connection grew as the story progressed. Especially since they spent so much time together. Hell, even their business-related interactions were interesting!
Although this is the second book in the Limelight series I have to point out that it can be read as a stand alone. Its main focus is the developing connection between Skye and Landon and the obstacles they must overcome to be together.
All in all, a fantastic romantic story with well-rounded characters, lust abound and enough emotions to make it all worthwhile.
