I waffled on what to rate this book as there were parts of this book that I found myself really liking and laughing about, while other parts were not very believable and I just wanted to get through them as fast as possible. There were also multiple things missed by the author, editor and proof readers. By habit I find myself marking (highlighting and bookmarking) all the issues I find if they start to seem prevalent in a book. I didn't start marking this book until the second part and had approximately 60 bookmarks when finished, fortunately the majority were missing spaces and extra periods and only a few were incorrect grammar so hopefully as a reader you won't find it too disturbing.
Now about the story ... There are a few main players; Gabriel aka "Gabe" Gregory, Stelly Mulroney, her best friend Veronica aka "Ronnie", Gabe's evil dad Arnie, and Stella's evil stepfather Mitch. Arnie owns and heads ups a law firm that specializes in handling celebrity scandels, as well as being partners with Mitch in a couple of private sex clubs in London and New York. Gabe is a top lawyer for his dad's firm and has an opening for a Personal Assistant (PA).
Stella resents her stepfather for sabotaging her relationship with her mother after her father died, sending her away to boarding school where they didn't have any real contact and for continuing to limit and interfer with potential relationship they could build today. She knows that her stepfather is a client of Arnie Gregory's lawfirm and has spent the last two years applying for a position, so she can try and find some "dirt" and destroy him. Stella meets Gabe when she interviews for his open PA position, but thinks it is actually one for her father. During the course of the interview, it becomes apparent that Gabe has done his homework and knows that there is some reason she wants to work there besides just the job as his assistant. Stella decides to come clean about her plans to ruin her stepfather and prepares to leave thinking that there is no way she would be hired now that she has confessed. Gabe lets her know that he has his own "daddy" issues and if they work together he might be able to help her get what she wants and take down his father as well.
Throughout their interactions there was a "sexual tension" and flirting, so part of what Gabe explains to Stella is about their father's partnership in the sex clubs that she wasn't aware of and she blushes, just as she has done everytime they have flirted or he has gotten two close. He explains that she has quite a few innocent type of traits that will get her eaten alive if continued so he offers to educate her through The Alphabet Game. This is a game he invented with her in mind that would provide a new sexual experience based upon the next letter of the alphabet, starting with the letter "A" for arousal.
The book itself is split into four parts, but is not a serial which I appreciated. There are a few twists, turns and a couple of things that were expected and unexpected. Some of the sexual scenes were described in pretty good detail, while some were not and used some repetitive verbage. I was hoping for a little more erotic / explicit descriptions, especially after learning what the game was about, but I did learn a few new terms.
All in all I did like the book and highly recommend it. I will be quickly adding the next story to my reading list as I want more of the sass Ronnie provided and her story is next.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review
This was a freebie that I picked up from one of the many emails I get about free books. I was happy to see that it was the whole collection and not just the first section that was free and then the other sections would be extremely expensive for short books that you want to read to find out how the series ends. I was able to read the entire thing within a 24 hour period and enjoyed it for the most part.
It did seem like there were quite a few grammatical and editorial issues that threw me off a little, but I truely fell in love with Stella and Gabe. There were a lot of tears shed due to some of the atrocious activities perpetrated by Gabe's father. It was an eye opener to find out why Stella's stepfather had her sent to boarding school. The main characters and several of the secondary characters were well developed and lovable. I wouldn't mind seeing more of these characters in further books.
Stella Mulroney finally gets an appointment with Gregory & Son. She is expecting it to be with the senior, Mr Gregory but instead it is with his son Gabe. Gabe ends up hiring her as his PA. Stella wants to work at the company to get the goods on both her father and also Gabe's father because she believes both men are dirty and are running an illegal business behind their legal businesses.
Gabe and Stella are attracted to each other and while they are working on getting the goods on their fathers they decide to play a game of sex by going through the alphabet...starting with A. Gabe gives Stella a dictionary and tells her they will swap off letters he picked A so she goes next.
This was a HOT and Steamy read with a whole lot of mystery and story lines that I did not see coming.
I love the idea of the alphabet game so much think I will try it with my spouse.
Great read first time to read a book by Andie M Long but will not be the last time that is for sure.
Stella wants to get revenge on her stepfather. She takes a job as Gabe's PA so she can work at the firm that handles her stepfather's business. In order to put her plan into action, her and Gabe embark on the alphabet game.
The characters in this book were hilarious and there was definitely a ton of heat. I think Ronnie is one of my favorite characters of all time. I can't wait to read her story!!
