Working together just got closer!

by Marilyn Smith

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This story is about a CEO that works hard but has sex harder. When he sets his sight on the woman he wants, he doesn’t care that she works for him because her eyes says she wants him too. Others may have issues but he’ll deal with it. They want to see where this goes.

You Can't Fight Love

by Nella M.

This may be a hard bargain, but everyone wins in the end! Wes and Kylie certainly have the chemistry to have a good time together, but secrets beneath the surface doesn't take long to create complications. Despite best intentions, these two just fit, and are physically combustible. It's an inevitable love, but also one with potential for disaster. The book is well-written, and flows perfectly. I was engaged the entire time, and really like the characters. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Great Debut Novel With Strong, Sexy Characters

by Rachel C

The advance copy of this book I obtained through Booksprout is a great debut novel from Ms. Vale! A well written book with an interesting storyline and complex, endearing characters. I loved everything about Wes and Kylie. They’re both logical, mature and ambitious, and together they’re incendiary! This is a very good start from this author and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Sassy and Sweet

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The protagonists are easy to like. The protagonist, however, made me want to "boo" him out of the story. There are plenty of steamy scenes too. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Excellent contemporary billionaire & revenge romance.

by Margaret McGovern

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
4.5 stars This was an excellent billionaire/revenge romance. Kylie was working as a receptionist until the CEO realized she had her MBA and was there for nefarious reasons. Originally, it was what Kylie intended until she got to know Wes. From the minute they meet there sexual pull between them. Kylie was there due to her mother losing her job years ago regarding an affair. The author humanized the characters which made it more interesting and realistic. I received a complementary copy of this bookq via BookSprout and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Vale.

Well done

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This is a very good book for this first time author. Wes and Kylie lust for each other, but they are also boss/subordinate. Clearly a taboo topic, but this books makes it so sexy. Well done!

CEO with a twist

by Bookreview.dk

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This story is a great read and it flows well. It is an easy and enjoyable read. I like the story line and plot. My favorite scene has to do with a closet in a restaurant. The story is written in dual POV and gives the reader both thoughts and feelings of the main characters. Wes and Kylie are well described and develops through the story. I like the aspects the author brings into the story. There is a good balance between the hot scenes and the story line. They are well mixed. There is emotional ups and downs and very unsuspected twists in this story. I like that Wes gives what he can to keep Kylie. I like them as a couple. But I think that the part where Kylie is stated to be a virgin must be a mistake. In the story it says otherwise.
This story has secrets, lies, suspense, intrigues, passion, lust, chemistry and drama in it.
I can only recommend it to others.

Lots to enjoy~

by Patricia S

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Now this is a book that will capture your attention and have you reading well into the night. Okay and I will admit the steamy scenes helped :)
The story was complete. And for me revenge is always sweet and it seems Kylie gets some great side benefits. Okay, don't judge here.
I won't reveal anymore but I will give away that we do get our HEA.
This is an author who I will continue to follow. This was well written with intriguing characters with lots of action in and out of the bedroom.
