Billionaire Hunter Knox comes straight up – with a side of trouble.
Heir to a bourbon fortune, he’s hired my ad agency to save his family business. It’s my chance to win a star client and prove I can play with the big boys, until my one-night stand comes back to haunt me like the ultimate hangover.
Now I have to think up a killer campaign, and keep from falling into bed with Hunter again. Which is easier said than done when he’s the most handsome, arrogant, downright sexiest man
I’ve ever met.
I’m going to need another drink.
I had a feeling that I was going to love this series. So much so that I held off from starting this until I had all three together. Which turned out to be a very good thing as I read them all back to back with barely a breath held between them. Talk about fun addictive reading – absolutely loved it! If you loved The Hotel series by Lola Darling you will love this.
Ally works at an advertising firm where she is constantly being over looked for big projects due to the fact she is female. They seem to think she is perfect for the tampon ads but to give her a real challenge like revitalising the brand of a top bourbon company, they just want to push her aside. After begging to be given a chance to at least present an ideas pitch she decides to get in some last minute research. By research I mean going to a bar and trying out all the competition – well someone’s got to it! Only problem is the fact it gets a little hard to focus on the bourbon when a very hot guy seems intent on joining her – Ally’s thoughts keep jumping to that fact that she really wants to well ‘jump’ him. Well as she was always told in school, research is always best done with a partner, so why not just go with the flow. You can feel the sexual tension rolling off them right from the start and it doesn’t take long before Ally asks him up to her room. To say things get heated from there on out would be an understatement but before Ally can get to the main event with her still unnamed conquest he gets an important phone call and has to leave. All she can think is that it was probably for the best anyway and she should just focus on her presentation for the next day. Its all planned out and nothing will mess it up – that is until she looks up and realises that her potential new client Hunter Knox CEO and owner is none other than her one-night stand from the night before.
From then on the real fun starts, after getting the job (her presentation being miles ahead of the sexists idiots she works with one) Hunter insists she stay at the plantation so she can get a real feel for the place and the concept she is going for. All in the name of research does she agree to stay – its not at all so she can stay close to him, if she keeps saying it she might believe it. They agree to keep it professional, to keep the one night stand as it is, just one night, but with the amount of chemistry flowing between them it is going to be harder than they thought. When the idiots she works with start to question how close they are and whether that’s how she got the job she insists they stay apart for good. She just doesn’t expect Hunter to find someone else so quickly, but more importantly it’s the ‘who’ he finds she has a problem with.
I loved Ally’s inner thoughts throughout the whole book; she was just so funny with what she came out with. The tension between her and Hunter is so yummy that you are just dying for them to just rip each other’s clothes off. You can tell how perfect they are and if he wasn’t a client you know she would go full speed ahead. The style of writing is light and fun, a real great read and I wasted no time in going straight into the next instalment. Kind of ended with my heart in my mouth so needed to know as fast as physically possible what was going to happen next.
5 out of 5 stars
I received this ARC from Give Me Books for my honest review.
