Billionaire Hunter Knox comes straight up – with a side of trouble.

Heir to a bourbon fortune, he’s hired my ad agency to save his family business. It’s my chance to win a star client and prove I can play with the big boys, until my one-night stand comes back to haunt me like the ultimate hangover.

Now I have to think up a killer campaign, and keep from falling into bed with Hunter again. Which is easier said than done when he’s the most handsome, arrogant, downright sexiest man
I’ve ever met.

I’m going to need another drink.

I picked this one up after reading the blurb, but I didn’t pay attention to the cover where it says Part One… so it turns out that it’s part of a serial… oh well, I gave it a try anyway. It turned out to be a pretty good read for my first Lila Monroe read.

It began with Allison (Ally) tasting bourbon in a bar, as part of research for the ad campaign she is working on. A handsome stranger comes over and before she knows it, she’s taking a chance and they are heading back to her room. I could see this encounter was going to bite her in the butt… but it was amusing none-the-less! Soon she’s working with this stranger and fighting her attraction because she wants to succeed with this campaign and make a name for herself.

I liked how Ally was driven and didn’t allow her feelings to intrude on her professional life. You can see that she is very attracted to Knox, but feeling like a nobody in the past has made her determined to make this campaign a success. She’s treated poorly in her workplace, and there are a lot of jerks on the sidelines just waiting for her to fail. There were a few moments between Ally and Knox where she would let her guard down, and I could see the heat rising between them, but she was quick to back away.

The ending though, kind of broke both Ally and myself, and reminded me why serials annoy me at times! The story was great, but nowhere near long enough, and they end abruptly leaving you hanging for more. It was an addictive beginning to the series, and I felt that the author did a great job building the world and hooked to the characters. If you are looking for a short read, with plenty of flirting and fun, definitely try this one! 

This is my type of girl!! Says exactly what she's thinking!

“I’m just trying to figure out what criteria led you to hone in on the girl with the highest alcohol content in the room. Your self-esteem that low?”
I regretted the sarcastic remark the second it left my mouth. In high-stress situations, I tended to blurt out exactly the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time; it was an adrenaline-fueled, involuntary, and very unfortunate defense mechanism of mine. One that got me into trouble more often than not.
