I have read Jessica Lemmon's work before and was not disappointed. The same can be said for this book. Sure, it may be a storyline we've heard before: billionaire needs a wife in order to land the CEO position he wants. Coming up with a plan to do just that, he decides to marry Merina, who is devastated over the fact that Reese and his family bought her beloved historic hotel and attempted to modernize it. However, the author really kept me entertained within these pages and I never felt like I was reading the same old plot with the same old characters. Merina and Reese worked so well together that they will leave you wanting more of their story.
One thing I absolutely love about this author is her sense of humor. I found myself literally laughing out loud quite a few times. It really makes a difference just having the comedic timing, especially when writing a book where you picture the characters in your head instead of watching them on the screen. I also enjoyed the lightheartedness of the book. Sure, there's always that something that comes along to separate the MC's but being able to have a happy ending is worth it.
Merina and Reese were both very dedicated to their work. They had a passion for it, and whether they noticed it or not, they were practically picked from the same tree. Which is probably why they had a hard time getting along at first. But you cannot deny that chemistry when it comes into play and that is something that they have in spades.
I recommend reading this story! It’s fun and easy to get through. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I just know I'm gonna love Tag's story!
Manwhore. That's what the board of directors-and the tabloids-thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing-and no one-will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.
Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back-even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract-six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband . . .
