This was my first book by Hunting and I can promise you it won’t be my last! I laughed out loud and kept hoping the slow burn would turn into something full on…and let me just say that this book certainly detailed the hook up. Despite the fact that I was reading by myself I am pretty sure I was grotesquely blushing.
Wren is a handler for Moorehead Media where she handles the image and PR for Armstrong Moorehead (the son of the CEO…who is a train wreck). When Mr. Moorehead suddenly passes away, his widow offers Wren a hefty pay increase and contract extension to stay and be the handler for her other son, Lincoln.
You see where this is going…Lincoln is a do good kind of guy. He is pulled from his humanitarian builds to come in and try to help run the company. He fights being involved with Moorehead Media with every ounce of his body. He also tries to fight off feelings for a certain woman he is working closely with…
I was a little worried that this book would be all about sex; however, despite one scene in this book, that was it. It isn’t raunchy or completely inappropriate. I am usually not a fan of romance novels, but this had a different feel. Almost like it was a family drama with a sprinkled romance story line.
I found myself rooting for Lincoln and Wren and hoped there would be a happy ending. The drama with his family is what made this book amazing. Yeah sure, it’s a romance book, but it was refreshing to have drama outside of the relationship. So often with romance novels the conflicts lay with the couple, but not in this book. Wren and Lincoln are two AMAZING, caring people that are the reason there is good in this world.
Solid 4 star book. If you are someone who enjoys a non-mushy romance, brace yourself for one crazy descriptive scene, and dig in to this novel. Seriously…this surprised me with how awesome it turned out to be! It’s officially released tomorrow so make sure to snag your copy then!
