Bentley is serious, stuffy, and “rigid”. A real stuffed shirt, but that was how he was raised and doesn’t really know how to be any other way.
When he trips over Emmy, in a coffee shop he is drawn to her easy, outgoing ways. But Emmy’s light exterior hides her vulnerable side.
“We could build a great life together, baby. No one gets me the way you do. I need your loving, forgiving heart in my life. I need you. And I think, if you let yourself feel it, you need me, too.”
“I know. I am, too. I never thought I could love someone like I love you. I do, and I want you to know it.”
I truly swooned for Bentley and his protective nature. He sees his own faults and works to make himself a better man. And Emmy is such a sweet heroine, so resilient and strong. I got such a book hangover from this story. I just need more Vested Interest to cure me!!
Bentley is the first book in the “Vested Interest” series, and what a lovely way to begin. I’ve always had a weakness for book boyfriends in suits, and Bentley Ridge is just my type. Set in the awesome city of Toronto, this new series follows three men who met at university. Long-time friends and business partners, Bentley, Aiden, and Maddox have taken their considerable talents and grown a multi-million-dollar empire from the ground up. Bentley is the leader of the trio – a natural who balances the responsibility of their corporate empire on his capable shoulders.
Bentley’s work is his life, until he detours into a coffee shop on his way to a meeting, trips over a worn rucksack, and is introduced to Emmy. Several years younger than Bentley, Emmy is a student making ends meet on a student income. She is free-spirited, artistic, snarky, charming, and kind. Bentley’s attraction for Emmy flares almost immediately, reigniting his sense of fun.
She gives Bentley homemade scones, and he reciprocates by placing his silk tie around her neck – a sweet exchange that gives him a thrill and cements Bentley as a swoon worthy book boyfriend. It is just one sampling of many wonderful moments between this most unlikely couple. The dynamic between Bentley and Emmy is sizzling and had me enthralled from beginning to end.
Bentley is the perfect first installment for Melanie’s trilogy. If you’re looking for a new and sexy world to invest in, I highly recommend the “Vested Interest” series. From what I’ve already glimpsed in the first book, Aiden and Maddox can give Bentley a run for his money, and the upcoming books telling their stories are solid and highly-anticipated additions to my TBR list this year.
With the help of his two best friends since college, Bentley has been running a business that has secured him financially. While his professional life is on the raise every day, he begins to notice that he's missing something in his personal life. When he crosses paths with a sweet, smart and attractive student by the name of Emmy, she starts realizing that there is more to life than the office and business transactions.
I adored the coupling of Bentley and Emmy, from the very beginning you feel the magic between these two characters. Her sense of humor and easy going personality make Emmy my type of heroine. Little by little she shows Bently to relax and enjoy life a little more, and he helps her realize that money is worth nothing unless you have someone to share it and enjoy it with. They really are a perfect pairing. But while these two embark in a sweet relationship, there are forces behind them trying to not only separate them but ruin Bentley's pride and joy, his business.
Moreland does an excellent job developing her characters as well as a well crafted storyline. Not only is Bentley charming but his two best friends complement him just the right way. Aiden and Maddox add a little humor and a lot of sexy into this story.
Sexy, romantic with a little angst mixed in between make Bentley a perfect book that would have you enthralled from beginning to end.
