Book & Author Details:
Counting on You by J C Reed & Jackie Steele
Publication date: June 5th 2017
I have everything I want. Success. Wealth. Women…and make that plenty of those. As a filthy-rich CEO, I would say I’m pretty much close to perfection. Except for that one weakness: I’m cocky as hell, and an irresistible magnet for women.
So when one tiny mistake lands me in hot waters with the investors, I have one hell of a choice to make:
Restore my reputation…
Or risk losing my company.
I’m a man of my word and failure is not an option. Not now. Not ever. I fully intend to uphold my responsibilities.
Sharing an apartment should be easy, right? And it’s only for six weeks.
That’s what I thought before I found out that my new roommate is female.
Vicky Sullivan is unlike any woman I’ve ever met.
She’s hot as sin, and crazy.
Definitely not my kind of crazy, but too hot to pass up.
There’s something about her that makes me rage with want.
I don’t like her, but obviously my dick does. And what he wants, he gets.
Living together shouldn’t be too hard…
Until my best friend challenges me to a bet…
I make it my mission to make her mine.
There’s only one problem.
I have to break…Every. Single. Rule.
And did I mention she’s completely off-limits?
It’s too late to say no.
COUNTING ON YOU is a standalone rom-com with no cliffhanger.
This book was so much more than originally billed, in my view. Whilst I completely expected to get a spicy romance, I really didn’t expect the emotional element which unravelled with the story.
Kade is thoroughly dislikeable. A completely arrogant tool with a god’s gift to women complex. Vicky is completely in denial about her “boyfriend”. So much so, that you might be forgiven for shouting at her (in your head of course) with frustration.
Their time in rehab is told with liberal amounts of humour and sexual tension. Told in dual POV, I found that worked really well in helping to get a more rounded view of the overall story.
A pleasant surprise.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
