Is it so difficult to have some one edit these books?
I give this book 3.5 stars. It wasn't fantastically awesome, but it was definitely nice to read a sure thing. You know?
What's it about? Our hero and heroine meet because the hero's father listed the heroine in his Will. The hero goes in search of this woman, sure that one of his many trysts weaseled her way into his Will.
Who are they? Our heroine, Laura, is one of those just too sweet to toot girls. She's been ignored by her mother in the TLC department pretty much her whole life. Not just in TLC either, financially as well. She's always finding herself with yet another monetary set back because her mother took off again with husband, 4, 5 or 6.
Our hero, Taylor, is in charge of a billion dollar company that railroad's financially drowning companies to sell off to him so he can take their business and make it bigger, better and HIS.
He has the whole, mine, mine, mine thing going on and not just in the boardroom, but the bedroom as well.
What happens? Once Taylor confronts Laura at the coffee shop and tries to talk to her about taking the money, she refuses. See, Taylor's father took Laura on as the daughter he never (I guess) had. He was always in the coffee shop, helping her through her issues with her mom or just being a shoulder to lean on. He was always trying to help her financially so that she could finally recognize her dream and go to college, but Laura, being the goodie girl that she is, always refused - not ever wanting to take advantage of their friendship.
So Taylor keeps making all these snide remarks here and there, pretty much letting the reader know he's onto her game and know's she slept around with the old man to keep her pocket's filled, but Laura, with her virginal ears doesn't pick up on it, just think's he's odd. Since Laura doesn't want any part of the Will, Taylor makes her an offer with his company. She can come work for him and earn the money from the Will within her salary, so that she feels comfortable taking the funds. Laura likes this idea and the plan to meet again later the next week.
This is the part where, when Laura gets to the office, finds that he expects her to pretty much be eye candy at all his meetings and seduce the old guys from the companies he's trying to buy out. He's calling this position his "Personal Assistant". He tells her that she will be at his beck and call whenever, wherever and however he deems necessary.
Blah, blah, blah...he buys her tons of shit....they go out of town, he's a dick, she gets in over her head and they start making out. He finds out she's a virgin and decides to take it and her as his own. He has a fetish for tying up, and the sex between them is hot. There are a few places where, because the author tried to be so detailed in the sexual positions, that were confusing and dampened the vibe (ta-hehe). For example there were a couple parts that said something like " he rolled me underneath him and then I began to ride him sitting up" ummm...ouch for Taylor. There was something similar in the next paragraph. I guess you could say it was all in one scene, but it just bugged me.
Any who, so it was a good book. It was your basic "poor girl meets rich man" scenario, but that just never gets old to me. Keeps me sane in my angst riddled reads.
I do recommend this book for something hot, short and sweet to read. Especially if you like the whole devirginilization thing. I'm not sure if that's a word, but it's definitely an exhilarating process to read about.
