Hard Bargain!!!

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Thank you Vivian Vale for this hot read!! This was the very first book I've read of hers and she did not disappoint. It was well written and very steamy. You won't be able to put it down.

Wes Wagner is CEO of RidgeCo and he's accustomed to get things his way. Kylie Jordan is his newly appointed Project Manager and she has some plans of her own. Wes is determined to have Kylie regardless of the company's strict no fraternization policy. Will they be able to keep their hands to themselves?? Be prepared for some twists and turns. They are totally worth it!!

Suspenseful, steamy and full of excitement is what happens in this well written story. Vivien did a great job writing this story and creating well developed characters that you will relate to from the start. They have very hot chemistry and the relationship is technically a no no so it made the storyline even hotter. This is definetely a book that has a good story and good people which makes for a good read. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

Amazing read!

by Pat W

Wow, it is hard to believe that this is the first book by Vivien Vale! This author has the gift of being able to draw the readers into the story by the words that she writes and that is exactly what she did with me! The storyline flowed flawlessly throughout the whole book and as I turned each page I was being pulled deeper and deeper into Wes and Kylie's story as it unfolded! I definitely look forward to reading more from this author!

Sweet Romance Read

by April R Symes

This is a romance read from new author Vivien Vale. CEO Wes Wagner wants to have fun with new Project Manager, Kylie Jordan except there is a no fraternizing rule but Wes isn’t about to let that stop him when it comes to Kylie.
Kylie has an ulterior motive for working at RidgeCo and is much closer to implementing her plan. Except she has lustful feelings for the CEO Wes…she feels mad attraction for him and she doesn’t know what to do since she doesn’t dare let anyone know of her plan to take the company down, especially the CEO. Wes himself feels himself getting drawn in by Kylie and immediately they are drawn into hands on relationship. Wes can tell Kylie has secrets and he wants to know what they are – there are secrets going on.. there is suspense and mystery and most definitely a passionate love affair but what will happen when the secrets come out? Will Kylie and Wes get their HEA?
I liked this forbidden office romance story , for it is hot and intense. What did puzzle me is this was stated to be a virgin and a billionaire story but Kylie didn’t appear to be a virgin in this story so I am not sure about the description on that… maybe a mislabel perhaps? For a first time author, this was a great first story and I look forward to reading her next story.
My Rating: 4.4 stars *****

I'm a terror in the business world. A billionaire CEO with the body of a god. You want to stop me? I'll bankrupt you and turn you into dust. No one can stop me from taking what I want. Until Kylie. She didn't try to stop me from having her.
She wanted me. But once wasn't enough. Now I want more. The book is great.When I started reading I couldn't put it down.

Enjoyed this first read from the author - sexy, good storyline with a bit of suspense thrown in

by SBee Reviews

I received an Advance Reader Copy for Hard Bargain written by Vivien Vale and voluntarily reviewed this book. Wes Wagner is CEO of the successful tech company RidgeCo, and he has taken notice on one mindnumpingly gorgeous Kylie Jordan, who has just recently been promoted to project manager. The only problem is, there is a senior manager who seems to have a lot of issue with that fact. Wes was definitely wanting to give Kylie a chance to use her MBA and shine, but wishes it would be in his bed as well. One heated moment becomes something that neither wanted to put a name to, but both wanted with each other. However, the stakes of her project and the attention which Kylie seems to be garnering from her discontent boss at the office is making waves and affecting her decision to pursue anything further with Wes, because it is forbidden for employees to have personal relationships at the company.

Wes & Kylie

by Di

This is my first read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. The story flows very well, the characters are lovable and there is a bit of suspense of what the secret is with Kylie and why she wants to take down the company she works for.
Wes is the CEO and the no fraternizing rule is strictly followed but that doesn't stop him or Kylie from becoming involved, they just have to be extra careful since someone is out to get them.
A great read with many steamy scenes and I enjoyed both Wes and Kylie, what Wes gives up for Kylie will make you swoon and Kylie is a very independent woman and not into relationships until Wes breaks through those walls. I'm just confused about the description about Kylie since it states that it's a virgin and a billionaire but Kylie from the descriptions of her past is definitely not one and is far from innocent which threw me for a loop when their first steamy scene happened. Otherwise a great read for a debut and I can't wait to read more from this author.

Office romance gone right.

by Kat Talbott

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Wes is the CEO at RidgeCo, when he promotes Kylie. They both have their ulterior motive in this book, but neither keep them for long. Kylie to take down the company for something that happened in her past. Wes, take down Kylie before she can destroy the company. Their attraction to each other doesn't allow a vendetta to survive the heat the two generate between them. And it gets hot. You would not know this is a breakout (first time author) book by how well it's written. It has an amazing storyline, characters, and it will keep you flipping the pages. It's one you should check out for sure.

Loving Wes....yes please

by CharmaineW

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Revenge is a dangerous game. Receptionist Kylie believes the company RidgeCo damaged her family so getting more involved is a good plan. Now being promoted to Project Manager is even better but she doesn't bargain on CEO Wes Wenger. Their attraction is off the charts. He wants her badly but this causes a big problem in the office, especially with certain staff. A story of sex, lies, intrigue, secrets and so much more. Loved it.
