A sassy, sexy, laugh-out-loud rom-com between the hottest man never to be tamed and the woman crazy enough to try
Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program—helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She’d love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm.
Bennett Wade is many things—arrogant, smug, brusque—but trusting isn’t one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there’s one thing Bennett can’t stand, it’s when things don’t go according to plan.
They are a match tailor-made for trouble.

This book made me so happy!!! I absolutely love a book with great banter between the main characters and this had it in spades. I was very entertained by the constant back and forth between Bennett and Taylor. There were so many funny quotes just from Taylor's thoughts alone.
I loved how Bennett came off as such a jerk at first but then Taylor started peeling back layers to find out what a great man he really was. Bennetts mom was hilarious! I loved the phone conversations between Taylor and his mom.
I'm so glad to know this is just the first in a set of standalone series. There were so many great characters in this book that I would love to see in their own book. This was a safe read with no cheating and a great HEA!

Another great one!
This book was funny of course, with drama and surprising twist. Taylor's "assuming" was driving me crazy, but I was hanging on to ever word hoping she would see the truth! Keep em coming Mimi!
Laugh out loud love story!
This is the first time I have read anything by this author and I really enjoyed it. This was such a fun read! I laughed out loud many times! The book was well written and it flowed well! Taylor’s inner dialog was a riot and you always knew what she was thinking! This can be read as a stand-alone as it is the first book in this series, however there is a prequel, The Happy Pants Café, which I haven’t read. Loved the storyline that if you ate a particular love cookie from The Happy Pants Café, you would fall in love within 7 days. The set up for this was a riot!
Taylor Reed is beautiful, very smart, loyal, and a foul mouthed fire cracker. She doesn’t take crap from anybody. She grew up the youngest child of a famous race car driver father and an actress mother. Her mother died giving birth to her and she has three very successful older brothers. Tailor grew up feeling guilty for the death of her mother and didn’t feel like she was as successful as rest of her family. Her family loves her and never meant to make her feel like she wasn’t successful and never wanted her to feel guilty for the death of her mother. They are very supportive in their cave man type ways! Taylor was trying to get her business and new program off the ground by training ignorant and arrogant (her experience) CEO’s and upper management on how to treat their employees so they have a positive work experience and would in turn cause better productivity. She had just quit her job for fear of being fired after a confrontation with Bennett Wade when he was supposed to attend one of her training sessions.
Bennett Wade is not your typical rich and powerful CEO. He is handsome, smart, sexy and he is so much more! He is like an onion; he has layers (actually mentioned in the book)! He and Taylor had crazy chemistry! This was not insta-love, it is more like frenemies, there is a lot of buildup, flirting and banter, and the sexual tension was intense!
I loved Bennett and Taylor’s characters! There is a host of secondary characters that are hilarious and I would love to know more about them. Hopefully there will be books about Taylors family and Bennett’s mom! Even though this is a romantic comedy, there are touching moments that tug at your heart!
I am not going to give anything more away on this! There is a lot that happens and your heart goes out to the characters! You really need to read this laugh out loud funny, sweet, romantic comedy. It was a fun read and a breath of fresh air from the more intense reads! I look forward to reading the prequel, The Happy Pants Café and future books in this series!
