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.
Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?
When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.
For real this time.
Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.
But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.
The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.
*This is a steamy office romance.
This is a Kindle Worlds novella. Not familiar with Kindle Worlds? It’s where the brain children of several authors come together. Pretty interesting concept.
In this novella, Locke introduces us to Amity and Carver (pretty freaking awesome names, if I may say). These two uber competitive and go-getters are competing to take over the helm of their fathers’ company. While both Carver and Amity are qualified, the board pits them again each other, forcing them to compete for the position. What we don’t bank on is the history between theses two. There are a lot of unresolved feelings and issues with a dab of miscommunication thrown in.
The scenario creates a lot of build up and tension – perfect for the emotional undercurrent of the story. Carver turned out to be a much nicer guy than I expected. I often felt bad for how Amity treated him. It was almost as if she couldn’t see Carver with present-day lenses and let her recollection of the past cloud her judgment.
But, I am happy that she succumbed to Carver’s charm (man was rocking quite a bit of it) and she redeemed herself in my eyes with her decisions after some eye-opening moments.
Being a novella, it’s a super quick read. I had a bit of a hard time really getting into it because of my feelings toward Amity in the beginning, but by the end of the book, I was digging the story.
