I have a new favorite author to follow: Mia Kayla. From the first page, I was hooked by this story and read it in one sitting!Damn this book was marvelous, and I love Mia Kayla’s writing style; romantic, funny and sexy. Her first novel, Marry Me For Money is a HIT!
Bethany has her dream job and she nailed it. Even with her past always tormenting her, because her mother made some selfish choice and she had to pay for her mistakes, she didn’t whine about her situation. She’s brave and willing to fight. In her perfect planned life where she had not much time for love, she met one day the most laziest manwhore : Kent Plack.
Kent is the epitome of the rich bachelor, enjoying his life by doing … Nothing! Between the two of them, it wasn’t love at first sight, more “I hate you and I can’t stand you” relationship! Sexy, cocky and charming man, he became quickly friends with her. We comprehend his loneliness and insecurities behind this carefree side. He wasn’t hiding his lifestyle and was always honest with her.
In the mix, between her mother’s problems and Kent’s intrusion into her life, she was wooed by Brian Benson, an other financial banker working in the same company. He was persistent and she trying hard to push him away. She didn’t date co-workers and he had his ways to seduce her.
The author did it again and the magic still operates. I really enjoyed the banter between Beth and Kent, how their friendship was so effortless and natural. I like them as friends, with different lifestyles and with complementary personalities. And Brian, the sweet and good guy, totally fitting into Beth’s life.
When Beth and Kent came to an agreement, the drama began. Things got complicated and confusing for them.It was too much hotness to handle in here (I won’t complain) and Mia Kayla managed to write some steamy, sexy and more than hot moments between the characters. It was an intense pull, connection between Beth and Kent.
The reading was flowed and addictive! The plot and the main character’s development were great. It was a delightful love story, from best friends to lovers! So frigging awesome! Read it, you’re gonna love it!
