"You've seen me naked, so I'd say you're definitely qualified to say which is my best side."
That Night with the CEO (Harlequin Desire) - Karen Booth

One of my favourite contemporary romance authors debuts with Harlequin Desire this month! Karen manages to push all of my "like" buttons every time out, and her latest effort, "One Night with the CEO" is no exception. (copy of the book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review).

 

To summarize: Melanie Costello is working her butt off to keep her small PR firm going. No small feat, after her business (and romantic) partner defected with one of their clients. When telecom mogul Roger Langford retains her to repair his playboy son's image after his latest tabloid scandal, she comes face to face with her best-kept secret: her one-night stand with Adam Langford.

 

Adam is gorgeous, interested, and still out of reach, now more so than ever.  Can Melanie keep a professional distance from Adam? If she can it will make her career.  If she can't, more than her firm is on the line - her heart is at risk as well.

 

So here's the thing.  I am SO excited for Karen - she was with Ellora's Cave, did three books with a small-press, re-released her old stuff herself, and this is her debut with Harlequin. So cool! The only drawback to a Harlequin is that an author is constrained by the company's guidelines, and I believe that includes the length of the book.  I would have loved to see more of both characters, and as I know how good she is at character development, it's hard not to feel a bit like she was just able to scratch the surface with Melanie and Adam's story.

 

That being said, Adam Langford is a hard-working, custom suit-wearing, stubble-bearing, swoon-worthy Hero, well worthy of all of Melanie's efforts.  Melanie is a heroine we can all relate to: burned once, she has trouble believing Adam could be as into her as she is him.  With snappy banter, sizzling chemistry and a sigh-worthy happily-ever after, "One Night with the CEO" is a worthy companion to a cold drink and a lounge chair in the summer sun.

 

And, I also need to say this:  Best. Cover.  Whew!

 

PS: Checkout Karen's backlist - this is just a taste of what she can do.  :)

Review:

"The Billionaire Boyfriend Trap" by Kendra Little''


What I liked about the novel...


This was a nice short read that I rather liked. It was quite interesting seeing how this heroine did get the hero in the end. The characters were all well developed, well portrayed and believable giving the reader a well written script that will keep your attention until the end. I did not find this one a predictable read because toward the end the reader will be given quite a twist that will give new light in this interesting story. I liked how this author end this series 'The Billionaire Boyfriend Trap" to the next series....'The Billionaire Boyfriend Proposal' and it sounds like another interesting read.

...just waiting for the world to get sick of reading about really rich guys tying up their girlfriends so that they can spank them...
Locked - Maya Cross

In my endless quest to find a "better" version of FSoG I keep picking up these billionaire BDSM books. (And, to be fair, it's hard to find a contemporary these days that ISN'T an homage to that stupid book.)

This one is set in Australia which immediately gets points from me, if for no other reason than I can imagine the hero talking dirty in an Aussie accent. The heroine is also NOT a clumsy ingenue. She's a lawyer with a snarky sense of humour and a potty mouth. Again, immediate points from me for that.

I'm not sure if I liked it enough to pay for the next two installments; on the other hand I've paid for some pretty bad books recently so I can't really use that as a yardstick.

What to do, what to do...
