Nathaniel is an arrogant playboy born into money and the heir to a rich business. He’s used to getting his own way, doing his own thing, and having whoever he wants in his bed! His Grandfather owns the business he is heir to, but the Board don’t like his playboy ways and want to see he can settle down and work. He needs to show them that he is capable and so buys a business to run, but doesn’t expect to fall for the CEO, Madeline, aka Tink – she is the opposite of everything he usually goes for – short, curvy, fierce and takes no nonsense. He likes nothing better than pushing her buttons!
Madeline lives to work, has no social life and is determined to make this company work for her best friend who runs it for here Uncle, until it gets bought out by Nathaniel. She can’t stand him!! He annoys her, deliberately goading her for reactions, yet at the same time she can’t help looking at him, she’s attracted to him but doesn’t want to be. So when he suggests a fake relationship to help him out with his legacy she agrees, but hopes she doesn’t end up falling for the playboy and having her heart broken.
Brilliant witty banter between these two with hot sizzling chemistry! It’s great to watch these two grow together, becoming friends and letting their barriers down. Madeline suffers from a horrible personal problem which later on in the book causes some quite emotional scenes – these got to me quite a bit and I can well empathise with her!!
I really enjoyed this and would highly recommend you giving this a go – I will certainly read more from Ava.
