Sculptor Max Bowman isn’t happy when his sister decides to take an active role in the company she now owns a substantial share of, WolfeCorp.  He’s even less happy when he meets her new boss, Quinton Wolfe, a playboy who seems determined to use seduction to get Jennifer Bowman to do what he wants with her shares of the company.  Max decides to head Wolfe off at the pass by using a little scheme of his own.  Unfortunately, the outcome isn’t quite what he expects…

Quinton Wolfe cares a lot about his company—enough to seduce a young woman into helping him if necessary.  When her attractive brother throws a wrench into his plans, Quinton decides to get his revenge.  He doesn’t expect Max to accept his counteroffer, that Max warm his bed instead.  Max’s agreement startles and pleases him, but can anything more than a one-night stand come from revenge and manipulation?

At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like The Wolfe Proxy.  In the beginning, neither Max or Quinton  came across as very sympathetic.  They both seemed arrogant and manipulative.  Fortunately, both of them began to reveal other facets of themselves after their initial night together.  Quinton especially has many reasons for his actions, and his past made me feel for him a lot more.  Secondary characters, such as Max’s best friend and his sister, are interesting and help flesh out and advance the story.  Conflict abounds, mostly internal, making Max and Quinton’s relationship bumpy.  Readers who like their heroes to be stoic tough guys won’t like The Wolfe Proxy.  I admit I got kind of annoyed with Max’s behavior at one point, but overall I was pleasantly surprised by the story.  In the end, The Wolfe Proxy turned out to be a sweet and emotional story, with angst and upheaval followed by a nice ending.
