About this ebook

He’s her grumpy boss. She’s his nemesis. How thin is the line between love/hate?

Entrepreneur Ryan Michaels never loses. Well, except that time, a few years ago when he lost a promotion to spoiled rich girl, Charlotte “Charlie” Ray. Now he’s forced to hire his nemesis to secure funding to develop a string of luxury boutique hotels. Not only does she not fit his corporate vision, but she’s too damn attractive for her own good. And his.

Working as VP of Sales and Marketing for a luxury hotel is Charlie’s dream job. Too bad her boss is Ryan Michaels, the same pompous stick-in-the-mud that she remembers. If he tells her that this project is his legacy one more time, she might scream. Or maybe kissing him will get him to shut up?

Because that’s the other thing. The sizzling attraction between Ryan and Charlie is impossible to ignore. But everyone knows not to mix business and pleasure. Don’t they?

I'm amazed these two didn't kill each other Ryan has a vision- He knows what he wants and he is bringing that dream to life with his brothers - both chosen and by blood Most big dream requires big money and sometimes that requires you to compromise a bit - the old give and take Enter Charlie - a headstrong, at times overly zealous new VP - She has earned her ego and Ryan's apprehension I saw the twist coming from a mile away though knowing it in no way detracted from these two and the fireworks their tensions emitted. You thought the rescues were feral? This is the first in the series so a bit of the story was spent building the foundation for future episodes as well as overall character development The relationship between Ryan and Charlie was a slow build with plenty of on-page chemistry that was quite tangible There were some lulls as backstories were strengthened but nothing major Loved the guys - the connections- the overall story A lot of feels Looking forward to the next in this series
