I truly failed in connecting with either character and I lost interest when I realize how bad the structuring of the plot line was.
This is a book I wish I had definitely steer clear of. Truly not worth my time.
While the writing was good, I felt the storyline was rather wobbly to say the least.
Gabe is a billionaire set on revenge. Keisha is handling her father's business while he recovers from a heart attack. Gabe has been phoning her regularly trying to buy the business. But when he turns up in person she doesn't recognise his voice?
The premise of the story is weak at best. Gabe hasn't done his homework, and halfway through destroying this family, he discovers the truth? I didn't buy it.
He's a successful business man who always does his research, takes over companies that are flagging, but this time doesn't know what he's talking about.
The night they meet, without her knowing who he really is, they get involved. Romantically. Then lots of nasty stuff happens and they..... Well, I can't tell you without telling you the end.
In addition to all of the above, I didn't find either of the characters particularly believable. Perhaps because of the storyline.
This book didn't satisfy this avid reader's thirst for good romance. I was quite disappointed as I was told Ms Flynn is an excellent writer.
I may read another Avery Flynn book just to see if this was a one-off no-so-good book.
Add in a potential hostile takeover, a dream job offer, a challenge, a life change realisation and you have a novella that will hook you from the first page and have you reading till you are done.
The sparks fly between Keisha and Gabe but so does the snark. That line between love and hate is fine indeed.
" Something about sparring with Gabe got her motor purring. It must be the novelty of telling someone no. That had to be it"
This novella ties loosely to High Heeled Wonder but if you read this story and like it, dive on the HHW, you will not be sorry. Avery Flynn is a favourite of mine and I'm sure will be yours too soon.
In the middle of a snowstorm Gabe’s Aston Martin runs out of gas and he squishes through the freezing slush to a car repair shop which, surprise, surprise, happens to be Keisha’s home. Recognition turns to loathing turns to attraction. We have all the makings of a standard isolated-cabin sex romp, but a telephone call intervenes.
The next few pages of this charming novella explore the reasons for Gabe’s grudge and Keisha’s dilemma—accept an attractive out-of-town job offer or stay and keep her dad’s company afloat.
In a three-way confrontation between Gabe, Keisha and Dell, Gabe confirms his determination to destroy Dell’s company. No one wants to back down so Dell proposes to bet his company’s future on a carpentry contest between Gabe and Keisha (not as ludicrous as it sounds).
At which point Ms Flynn reveals more about Gabe’s grudge and introduces an unexpected twist. The story has come a long way from the erotic promise of the snowstorm encounter, but the anticipated fireworks do eventually light up the sky and we’re left with a satisfactory resolution.
Crisp prose, a light sprinkling of chick-lit humour, and a happy ending. Thoroughly recommended with just a few tiny reservations, all of them of the your-mileage-may-vary variety.
The first encounter with wrench-wielding Keisha and her cake-carrying friend reminded me of Julia Roberts in The Runaway Bride. A coincidence, perhaps, but also a distraction.
Automobiles and woodwork contribute much to the humour and detail, but might be lost on those unfamiliar with the finer points of either.
Finally, a brief mention of one-and-a-half plot holes (YMMV). The bet plays such a major role in the story that even a few preparatory paragraphs explaining the speed with which Gabe and Dell propose and accept the bet would have helped. Maybe I missed it, but the resolution of the bet isn’t fully explained.
All these are no more than quibbles. Ms Flynn writes fine, racy, romantic erotica, and her latest offering is a tasty treat.
Was just me having a good. Characters are well developed and their desire for one another is off the charts. Good read
