Cheating husband. On-air meltdown. Public humiliation.
Lucky me, I’ve experienced them all. 
Oh, and the implosion of my career as an up-and-coming designer and renovation television
That was then.

Now, I’m in the TV studio, more determined than ever to prove to myself (and the few fans I
have left), that I’m back for good. Nothing from my past—no man, no mistake—is going to
knock me down again.

If only fate—and Grayson Hesse—had gotten the memo.

Woodworker. Stone house restoration guru. And the new host of Hesse and a Hard Place
This is what I know: 
If this show’s a success, I’ll finally be able to give my family the financial stability they need.
My chances of success go way up if I have the best designer in the business working by my side.
And the best in the business (despite the lingering rumors) is Annika Hale.

She’s the triple threat: brilliant designer, restoration maven, and the woman who stole my
heart six years ago…and hasn’t looked back since.

But that was then.

Now… Well, what is it they say? After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

My Thoughts… 

425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.   Katy Ames has written a perfect love story for Annika and Grayson.   They met, they hooked up, and then they lost touch due to a miscommunication.   A few years later they meet again and the heat they felt initially has not been put out.  The sparks, the heat, the attraction is still there and stronger than ever.  

I did feel that this book moved a little slower than some of the other in the series and that I knew exactly where Grayson and Annika would end up, but I enjoyed every word on the book.   I looked forward to finding moments where I could read another chapter, find out what twists would come next for these two, and when they would finally come together happily.   
Katy Ames is an author that I am looking forward to reading more from.  I recommend picking up your own copy of Love by Design and finding out for yourself why 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

I watch my best friend chew a hole in her lower lip. “Explain, Abby. Before you make yourself bleed.”
Abby opens her mouth. I brace myself for whatever she’s going to say and don’t hear a single word. I don’t hear anything at all, except the deep, rumbling laugh that rolls through the soundstage.
My stomach does cartwheels and every single hair on the back of my neck stands pin-straight. My anxiety before? It’s got nothing on the nerves that are about to knock my knees right out from under me.
That laugh—his laugh… It’s as potent today as it was the first time I heard it.
My eyelids flutter shut. All worries about first-day nerves and my shitty ex-husband and career recovery vanish. Into that mental void rushes a series of images, ones I’d mistakenly sworn, hoped, prayed, I’d forgotten.
A sweltering summer night. Low whispers and lurid words.
Large calloused hands finding the secret, most sensitive parts of my skin.
Lips made for sinning and promises whispered in a voice that sounded like salvation. A voice that belongs to a man who vanished without a word.
A man who, if I’m reading my friend’s—no, strike that, former friend’s expression correctly, has just claimed a starring role in the horrifically-timed comedy that is my life.
Abby’s eyes dart between my face and the person behind me. Plastering on a smile, she swivels her finger in what I’m assuming she thinks is the “turn around now” sign. “Annika, this is Mr. Hesse.”
I pivot, thrust out my hand, but can’t unglue my eyes from the ground.
M. G. Hesse.
G. As in Grayson, the quiet, kind, insanely hot carpenter I met on my first network design job.
As in the only man I’ve ever fallen for so hard, so fast, I didn’t stop to ask his last name before tumbling into his bed. Hell, I didn’t even care.
As in the guy I thought, against all the odds, would disprove my mother’s lessons about how untrustworthy men are—only to become the poster child by morning.
A broad palm slides against mine, fingers curling into a warm grasp. A jolt of awareness lights up my nerves, and my eyes finally lift to a face I haven’t seen in six years. Since the day I woke up in his bed, naked, in love, and alone.

Washington, D.C., a city in which she never planned to live and loves so much she’d be happy
to talk about it for hours. Just ask.
