I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
In the work place, we all know there are boundaries. One of those boundaries is Never Date Your Boss, especially if he is a playboy and you just had your heart broken. When Chloe Lambert finds herself down on her luck, none other than her hunky CEO boss, Garrett Nolan, steps in to rescue her, offering her temporary shelter at his ranch. Now, her boss is looking more appealing, and her friends canÔÇÖt agree on whether she should sleep with him or not. DonÔÇÖt even mention the fact she just learned he has a soft spot for kids and is using the ranch to help sick kids. WhatÔÇÖs a girl to do when it feels so right?
So Right With You is Maggie KayeÔÇÖs first book in her ÔÇÿThe Girlfriend SeriesÔÇÖ and it definitely exceeded my every expectation. It was fun and sweet and managed to grab me by my emotions from page one. The characters were strong and had a depth to them that made reading about them even more enjoyable.
Chloe LambertÔÇÖs fianc├® cheated on her with a friend of hers three weeks before the weeding. After hearing about this, her boss, Garrett Nolan offers to help her by letting her live with him at his ranch house outside the city. All of this might seem as a total clich├®, but it isnÔÇÖt. Chloe is a strong and independent woman and we never had to endure her over the top melodramatics because she was cheated on by what she thought was the love of her live. Of course she was hurt, but she picked herself up and continued with her live. She was funny, sweet and generous and had a depth to her as a character that made reading about her very entertaining.
Garrett, on the other hand, at first seems to be rather shallow and the all known rich man whore who flaunts his conquests rather publicly. Yet, as we get to know him, this image of him changes rather drastically. We learn that he, too, suffered from a betrayal that left him broken and with demons. He is also very sweet, considerate and a philanthropist, who does a lot for the community without public knowledge.
Overall, I enjoyed this story immensely. It was just the right combination of sweet, funny and frustrating to keep me captivated and entertained from page one. This story might seem like so many others on at first glance, but it is definitely not! Not only is the writing great and the flow excellent, but the secondary characters were just as entertaining and fascinating and complemented the story perfectly. I canÔÇÖt wait to read more of this series. IÔÇÖm definitely hooked.
