Jenny’s Review


Off the bat we meet, Ian Bradley, that kindly admits he is a Wall Street Dickhead, financial director, manwhore, sexy as heck man that no one can resist and all his women always want more than his two screw rule. Until he meets his match in the company lounge…

Lara McKenzie. Killer body, beautiful, strong, and she kindly declines Ian’s offer of drinks, tells him straight up she’s not interested. The challenge is accepted. Now more than ever, Ian is determined to get the first woman that has turned him down, even when that woman is an SEC investigator whom he just found out was investigating him for insider trading.

The task of proving whether Ian is guilty or not guilty, leaves Lara getting to know Ian on many levels. Each level increasing her attraction to this man. Can she successfully complete her investigation without falling for her subject? Can Ian charm his way into proving he’s not guilty, or will he just simply win the love of the lady that could potentially ruin his career?

I’m surprised at how much I fell in love with this story. The banter between Ian and Lara is comical, the attraction so undeniable hot, the story told so well. If you’re looking for a sweet story with a HEA, this is one that will leave you with a sappy happy smile ? Release date is May 22nd. Be sure to pick this one up =))

Great start to this series!! I am dying to get the rest of these characters stories!!
