Oh Boy if this is the Lighter side of Leatha, WE NEED MORE MUCH MUCH MORE!!! I loved that its a well thought out story line, that it makes you laugh and want to tear up, it has great character build up along with tons of side characters to love and that she could Give Us More Stories With. It has some suspense that we didn't know about, I kept thinking someone was going to walk in an ruin the moment! She clears up most of the mystery we are given and Ends it Well and with someone staring in another persons direction....so does it end here? Well did you here that it ENDS! Ha yes, yes it does its a nice clean standalone AND she names someone with my last name, Price so you know I gotta love that!
Meet Duncan and Kimbra or Kimberly Ann by her family! They work together he is part owner in a business company in NY and he has hit it big time, he went into business with his buddy from college Mike and they set the bar high and it is achieved, they have the corporate office in NY and satellite companies all over the country, they did it, made the big time and have all money they could ever want! Mike is married to his college sweetheart with two kids and Duncan well he is still enjoying being a bachelor with no plans of Ever settling down, marriage is out of the question for him and we learn why! Kimbra is hired fresh out of college into his company in NY and works in the HR dept.on Duncan's side of the business. They are both attracted to each other but neither ever acts on it. Kimbra thinks he would never want anything to do with her because she just thinks he is way to good looking for her and he has made it at such a young age and he can have anyone he wants, he wouldn't be interested in someone that works in his HR dept. He can have anyone, a model from Saks were her best friend and roomie works if he wants but her, she thinks no way, she doesn't have much confidence in herself! So she just does her job, for 3 years and never so much as looks at him in a way that isn't professional, they have a work place policy that you cannot fraternize at the work place but outside of the work place you can do whatever. At one point Kimbra is in a relationship with a coworker, one of her managers until she finds him screwing someone in accounting at a New Years Eve Party. His name is Timothy and her parents knew she had a boyfriend, she had been proud of the relationship, it was one of the more stable ones she had since being out of college and settled into her job, but she was to embarrassed to tell them. Her cousins wedding is coming up soon, her mom calls to remind her this AND they need to use her Boyfriend in the wedding because one of the guys has broken his leg, well this is a Huge problem because when she clicks the little box for herself and a plus one she is with someone. She is beside herself, she does not know what to do until a very embarrassing private moment happens with her in the bathroom, yep presents a big moment in her mind and panties even... Duncan comes in the bathroom with a woman while she was washing out a coffee spill and is about to hit the dryer, with no shirt on she had ducked inside the toilet when the door opened she had no idea what was about to happen and she wouldn't have even been in the bathroom cleaning her blouse had it not been for Mr Willis calling her by name in the coffee shop! Yep she had just bumped into him and here he is in the bathroom with some woman, she is furious and then well after she listens she is shocked to realize she is getting hot and bothered, what is wrong with her she makes a noise because she is so turned on, they realize someone is with them, they run out but she knows it was Duncan, she saw his shoes, the same shoes she had seen just minutes before in the coffee shop. She doesn't know the woman, she goes to her desk and wonders who was the woman and then she immediately goes to his office that takes us to a bribe to a Plus One for a wedding, yep the HR straight and narrow has waltzed into his office and said she knows what he did and demands he do this favor, he considers it for a few minutes repeats it they talk about seeing each others shoes and he quickly Agrees and with a smile on his face he gets up gets closer flips the private glass and kisses her right in the office, she is shocked after she enjoys and kisses him back and then he says well you going to tell on me? Well that wouldn't work well for her Plus One would it now!!! Oh the things we find out about these two characters while gone from the office, how he has been watching Kimbra just biding his time, he thinks this is a walk in the park he gets to be in her bedroom for 4 days and nights yes he is Ready, has been ready! Its a made up romance to prove she isn't alone and will become an old maid, and that moving to the big city of NY is exciting and she is making it, it wasnt a mistake as all her family thinks it is and wants her to move home and settle down with the boy from long ago that owns a show store. Well she knows that is never going to happen, that showing off this hot guy, the pretend for her and fantasy for him ...well lets go! And they do seem to hit it off so hopefully they can pull this off! If so will her family leave her alone, she sure hopes so! But what about Duncan, is he in? She now ponders for days how to try and get them both out of going, back and forth on how its a mistake but she hasnt seen him all week and she is wondering, still pondering if its all a huge mistake, what if he tells she is bribing him, but that kiss why did he kiss her? She does not know yet but she will and it was a very nice panty melting kiss now if he will even show she thinks. But that night he calls with instructions for her for the next day they will leave from work, it has to be a half day because they are expected to arrive, she is shocked with his call and how he has everything arranged this is happening, in his many sides of Duncan we do not yet know but will meet, HE with be Her Plus ONE!
Bravo Aleatha Romig! You Dog On Done Went and Done It Again! Love and Romance was quickly in the air even though it wasn't suppose to be you just don't have this chemistry with anyone, is it just the wedding, is the lust they been holding for 3 long years well they sure think it is and they jump on it quickly because what better way to prove they have truly been dating for 5 months than to get up and close on the way to Indiana and I mean up close and very sexy and personal and Hot Dirty Sex!!! I LOVED DUNCAN AND HIS FLOWERS
Yep Dating for 5 months when truly they only work together, they had one outside of work conversation just a few days before and she thinks up this farce of a plus one with the sexy owner, he was on a date then with another co-worker, but they do talk, he says it was a dinner meeting that he did have a date and they cancelled and so he asked his coworker to take the meeting there since he already had the reservations...yeah, well she doesn't care what it was, its out of the office so its not her job to keep up with him and he has BIG rumors to fulfill that float around the office. She even tells him about her roommate and a little of her family where she is from and he gives her just a bit of information about college and starting the business its a nice chat, she had just wanted to clear her head before getting on the subway from gulping down her wine and not eating very much from shock! She has learned from her roommate Shana that safety is in numbers on the subway but she is about to ride it alone so she needs her head straight from those couple glasses of wine with Shana, they had met in this new upscale Restaurant that every one is talking about, Shana had called her that day and said I have us a table and its my treat and Kimbra is ecstatic to go but she gets Shana's great news, she has been giving a big new job and its in London, Shana is a buyer at Saks and she is going to be helping to make big purchases for big name clothes!!! But she is leaving her best friend but Kimbra is happy for Shana she absolutely knows this is huge for Shana's career and she is proud but sad, however the timing could have never been better for a bit of get to know each other.
Its Hot, Its Sexy, Its Funny and the side characters are off the charts laughable, A grandma that has you cracking up every single time but also makes you think as well. I loves that it has a wedding in IN a place Duncan is so unfamiliar with and she gets to show him about things with the farm and country feel but I also the busy part in NY were they work! its all done Perfect!
One Click this jewel because Aleatha Romig has just shown us she can do way more than dark and I love that and I bet you do as well!
I did love this new lighter side of Aleatha and the fact that she would break out of her usual writing to write something so light.
I must admit that it did take me a wee while to get into this book, longer than I do her dark writing; I think this was because at the start there were some similarities to another book I had read, however, saying that did not dispel me from reading.
I love Aleatha’s writing and that will never change and once I got into this story I found the complexities very appealing, the apprehension was palatable and you could feel how Kimber (the heroine) was feeling and I fell in love with the characters. I would have liked the ending to go on a bit further and expand a bit more but was happy in the way it all worked out.
You have Kimbra Jones who is in HR for a pharmaceutical logistics company in New York City, she is good at her job and loves it, this is her dream job, however, she has a wedding to attend and no date to take. Kimbra has not informed her family that she would be going solo. Kimbra needs to come up with an excuse or an alternative to her former cheating boyfriend.
The opportunity arises when she catches her boss and owner in a compromising position with another member of staff, unknown to Kimbra though, her boss Duncan has a sweet spot for the lovely Kimbra and although she feels she is duping him into being her Plus One, he is going into this willingly.
The antics, laughter, and general fun this book has and what Leatha comes up with once these two are together is comical and exceptional writing. I would strongly suggest reading this book for yourselves, there is just something so light about it that makes you smile.
Kimbra is this strong independent woman who knows what she wants. She’s feisty, beautiful, smart and career driven. When she sees an opportunity to get out of an awkward situation with a little blackmail, you bet she’s going to take it!
Duncan is GQ sexy, a successful business owner. When the opportunity arises for him to finally get something (or someone) that he has been longing for he seizes the opportunity.
That is where the fun begins! The chemistry is off the charts for this couple. The pages practically melt in your hands.
The supporting character in this book are hysterical. I wish my family was that funny. I really hope Aleatha has plans for another book or at least a few novellas! I hope that she plans to write a book for Shana and Trevor. I have a feeling there is going to be a trip to London in his near future. Grandma Helen needs a novella for sure!
The book is smart funny, witty and sexy as hell. I want more of this couple, but that isn’t saying much because I always want more of Aleatha’s characters.
A must read!
This story has an intelligent, beautiful woman and a hot alpha male who both get more than they bargained for, a hysterically quirky family and a pink canopy bed--need I say more? A great, lighter departure for this author!
