“So tell me, suit,” she said, as lightly as she could. “What exactly is a virgin supposed to act like?”Jacqueline’s new boss is none other than her friend’s older brother—hot-shot lawyer Blake Bennington. His control freakery and his need to always, always be right would normally send fiery, unconventional Jax running a mile—but even she has to admit he looks edible in his bespoke suit!
She’s quickly realizing she’s way out of her depth but with this contained, experienced guy, trying to get him to lose his cool is just a little too tempting .
It’s entirely possible that this book might have hit all my hot buttons in contemporary romance. Well aside from people sleeping around when they know they’re in love with someone else. If only Blake had slept with someone else while he was trying to get Jax out of his system (which she would’ve forgiven him for… of course… because she forgives him for everything. After all, he’s only a man) then the literary rage would’ve been complete. Lasers would’ve come out of my eyes and the book would’ve been burnt to a crisp.
I cannot tell you it’s the worst thing I’ve ever read, and actually in a technical writing skill level sense its better than some of the things I read. Heck, some people would probably think this story is “cute” and just the bee’s knees. Meanwhile I’m there trying to punch the characters through my e-reader and grinding my teeth when that fails. Oh and don’t even get me started on how abrupt their “resolution” was.
2 stars. A decently written, if a bit rushed, story that trips nearly all my “are you fucking kidding me with this”es.
