Asher Grayson is a billionaire, a publishing powerhouse.
He crushes the competition and absorbs them into his empire.
Mara Monroe is a small-town journalist whose company verges on bankruptcy.
Destroying the little newspaper should be less than a day’s work.
A speck on Asher’s radar. But, there’s something about her.
She makes him weak—peels back layers he didn’t know existed.
There’s a hidden passion they both share.
But when his business interests don’t align with his obsession for Mara Monroe, he has a choice to make—give up everything he’s built or dismantle the thing she loves the most.
I have to say I was drawn to this book by the front cover. I don’t even think I read the blurb.
Mara is a writer who is attending a publishing conference. I enjoy her inner monologue and thoughts. She is kinda funny. She accidentally runs into a brick wall, or should I at and jerk with an ego. That conversation was interesting.
Oh, the man she runs into is also the billionaire speaker at her next conference. Asher Grayson is a businessman. Okay, so this book is riddled with laugh-out-loud sarcasm and snarky comments between the inner monologue and the outside conversations. They have a lovely battle of tongues in the middle of a conference hallway. I can’t wait to see where this will go.
This book does jump between perspectives and has a nice seamless switch in conversations as well. Their lives seem to entangle. This book gets steamy as they take their tongue lashing to the bedroom.
We see a different side to Asher as he is hypnotized by his feelings. It kinda sucks the amount of stress Mara is feeling, but at the same time, it is weird that Asher is so intertwined in it. Unsurprisingly things come to a head, and they shatter, leaving the couple reeling. What really surprised me was the solution that Asher and his partner came up with. This book does end happily.
This book was a great look into a sweet romance between an unlikely couple with unfortunate issues in business against each other. Asher and Mara’s romance was super steamy but also dreamy. I mean, who wouldn’t want a billionaire businessman interested in them. I love how grounded Mara” s character was in the story. I also love the changes we saw Asher go thru while he realized what happened. I love that it all worked out fantastically but getting there was a trip. This was a lovely business-based read standalone romance.
