Bargaining with the Boss
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Kinsley just wanted to have some fun for a change. Then she wakes up in a stranger's bed, with her bridesmaid dress on backward and a hazy memory of what happened at her friend's wedding. With a quick escape, she can get back to her predictable life. But then she meets her new boss—the same guy she'd woken up next to—and seeing him with a clear head doesn't make him any less attractive.
Mixing business with pleasure has never been Damon's style, and easily avoided, but the hotel he just bought comes with an unexpected perk—its manager. "Sensible" Kinsley today is as alluring as "impulsive" Kinsley was the night before, and she talks him into a deal. If she can turn around the hotel by the end of summer, he won't tear it down to put up more profitable condominiums.
Their plan is simple…until falling for each other becomes more than they bargained for.
Bargaining with the Boss (Accidentally Yours) by Jennifer Shirk
This is Kinsley Roberts and Damon St. James’ story.
This is a sweet and fun romance with great chemistry between Kinsley and Damon. I fell in love with Kinsley and Damon.
The story grabbed my attention from the beginning to the end. I love how reading her stories are so much fun and are a refreshing break from everyday life. This author never disappoints and really enjoyed this read. I’m hoping Kinsley’s brother Wade gets his story.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Cake, Frosting or Both?
Returning home after experiencing a bad break up with her fiancé, Kinsley hopes to bring her family's hotel back to its former glory. Upon returning, she finds out that her brother sold the hotel to St. James Corporation. Kinsley realizes the hotel is in need of repairs, renovations, and ideas to draw customers into visiting. Kinsley hopes her ideas will be enough to keep the hotel from demolition.
Damon St. James doesn't feel. Everything is business to him, nothing more. He has spent most of his adult years trying to gain his father's approval, to no avail. Prior to a meeting with the former owners, Damon attends a wedding where he meets Kinsley. He has an amazing evening with her, only to realize she's Wade's sister AND a former owner of the hotel his family just purchased. Eager to please his father, he arrives at the hotel with ideas on how to turn a profit. Ideas that suddenly don't seem so important.
This story had all the feels. It was a sweet, touching, funny, and somewhat sad trip down memory lane. It was difficult to see Damon struggle so much with the death of his brother and feeling as though he continuously lets his family down. Kinsley's kind heart and patience was the balm to his soul. Kinsley's determination to save her family's hotel was honorable. I truly enjoyed seeing them find their way. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
