He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.
I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.
Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.
Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…
He’s arrogant and infuriating.
He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.
He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.
Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I'm so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.
No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.
His wicked...devastating...impossible-to-resist smile.
Oh well, who needs panties anyway?
I knew I was going to fall in love with this book when it opened with the hospital scene. Once I started I couldn't put it down. I felt so much for what happened to Vicky and how she picked herself right up to take care of her sister. I loved the chemistry between Henry and Vicky. The scene where they are on the top floor of the unfinished building was HOT. My first read from this author and I loved very minute of it. Will definitely be reading more from her.
Couldn’t put it down. I hated Henry so much, I honestly didn’t think he’d be able to dig himself out of that hole. But he totally redeemed himself. Recommend!
Read this book!
Vicky Nelson never claimed she was really a dog whisperer, but when a wealthy woman won't take no for an answer, she humors her... harmlessly. But being a companion for a dying woman lands Vicky in a position she never wanted to be in... and the focus of the rich and ruthless.
Henry Locke will not lot a scammer take him and his family company down. He will stop at nothing to bring Vicky down. But, what Henry didn't count on was Vicky being the kind of woman who isn't so easily persuaded... or seduced...
Vicky has been through a bad situation when she was younger which fuels her distrust for wealthy and influential people. After years of avoiding any situation where she would be in the media or around people she distrusts, she is suddenly thrust into a role she has no desire to be a part of. That is, until they start to push her around...
I loved this book! Vicky is a smart, strong, hilarious and extremely capable woman. She was quick to catch on to any situation she was in and never fell for any of the backhanded things the Locke's threw at her. Henry starts out as seeming like an egotistical jerk... well, he is one... but you learn to love him for it! There was so much more to his character that meets the eye, and when he and Vicky start to hit it off, their relationship makes perfect sense.
The storyline was fresh and interesting and the writing was simply fantastic. The characters were done so well, they multifaceted and vastly entertaining. Vicky and Henry have plenty of steamy sex scenes and a witty repertoire I couldn't get enough of. I seriously enjoyed everything about this book!
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
