I loved this book! Delilah ‘Dee’ Donovan is a feisty woman who just does and says it all the way you want her to. She’s not someone who doesn’t stand up for herself. When I grow up I want to be Delilah or at least Willow, her assistant.
Handling PR for the famous and sometimes ‘infamous’ (i.e., D list celebrities, egads, worse than B list) presents exciting challenges that, with Willow’s assistance (who also is her wonderful supplier of Kit Kat chocolate bars, her drug of choice), has helped her boss, Jake, keep Park & Associates in high demand.
So, helping a man like Chase Manning, co-owner and CEO of Synth Games, should be a cinch, right? Ha, even in the world of romance novels, to get to a possible HEA, your story characters have to slog through a boatload of crap.
Chase Manning voluntarily checks himself into a rehab clinic, and it’s his interim CEO Dee has to help sort through the muck and mire and scrutiny from the media and the eyes of the world, at large. And don’t make the mistake of thinking Dee is not up for this challenge, because she is ready to show her boss she has the goods and talent to pull this next ‘job’ off and be made junior partner – except for the HUGE fly in the ointment, which is the new CEO, Nate Williams, the man who broke her 16-year-old heart a long time ago.
That’s the crux of it. The characters are believable and likeable in this book. To me, this book never faltered. I enjoyed ‘listening’ to everyone, even the ‘creeps,’ and believe me there are some obvious and some not-so-obvious creeps. But then, every book needs a ‘snake oil salesman’ character type. In that way, our heroes’ flaws are not as bad as they look.
Nana Malone did a great job with Nate and Dee, and this is an author I will always be on the look out for, an author worth remembering.
