on paper and in person it would be easy to dismiss kay bing. she's petite and blond and looks barely old enough to drive. but she's been mentored by two powerful women for her professional life and she decides to channel them in her new role as lead designer at free leaf concepts. she's out to make an impression, and her first order of business is firing oliver.
luckily it doesn't stick, but with kay suspicious of his motives oliver knows he will need to change tactics in order to keep the case. when honesty becomes the best policy, his cover depends on kay's buying the fact that all is not as it seems at free leaf concept. it's an idea she'd like to dismiss, but things are weird.
things are weird between kay and oliver too, because the truth is that there's this crazy attraction between them. partly because they are so good at reading one another. not just their motives, but the way their minds work. both oliver and kay are good at assessing people and figuring out what makes them tick. when kay is drugged with the shrooms in her salad everything ramps up, the case and kay and oliver's relationship.
it's a decent mystery and the romance works, as both kay and oliver are clearly meant for each other.
**love on the vine will publish on july 18, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/kensington books (lyrical shine) in exchange for my honest review.
When Kay's mentor and boss not so gently pushes Kay into a new job at an innovative botanicals firm, she knows she has to do her best at her new position because if Neve (her boss) referred her, she can't possibly do anything to let her down or make her look bad. Kay's new assistant is hot and gets under her skin immediately. As Kay takes on her new job, Oliver is there to help her, but he's really helping himself because he's there to investigate her new employer, as the firm is suspected of manufacturing a new deadly drug.
Although I like the mystery of Love on the Vine, and I even like both Kay and Oliver, there was something missing here. I can't pinpoint it exactly except to say that I just didn't connect to either of the characters, nor to the story as a whole. It's not horrible, it's not even bad, it's just...lacking something. Sorry for being so vague and cryptic. Unfortunately, I just can't justify a high rating for something I didn't connect to.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book received through NetGalley.
I would have liked to give Love on the Vine 4.5 stars. You do not have to read any other books in the Bound By Design series to enjoy this one. This is the first book I've read by Roxanne Smith and I am interested in reading others.
I liked the storyline and found the characters interesting. I would recommend Love on the Vine to people who like more suspense than love scenes.
