A Rich List Romance
Author: Talia Hunter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 18, 2017
Blogger Lacey Gibson is officially fed up with her playboy landlord. (Actually, he’s her playboy slumlord). Everything about her place in The Baxter apartment building is a mess. The roof leaks and the floor is rotting, but Branson Reyne refuses to fix a thing.
Her solution? Use Twitter to goad him into a winner-takes-all bet.
A bed in #TheBaxter would be more than #PamperedPlayboy could handle.
#TheBaxter is history. I’m pulling it down and I want you out.
If you want me out, come get me.
Is that an invitation? Ask nicely and I’ll think about it.
Last 7 nights in #TheBaxter, and I’ll move out. If I win, you fix up the building.
Deal made. I’m bringing my silk sheets, so you’re in for a treat. But I’ll only let you share them if you don’t snore.
Bronson Reyne’s determined to pull the Baxter down, and he’ll do what it takes to get Lacey to move out. That includes taking her bet and moving into her place, no matter how bad it is. He’s a playboy who likes his bad reputation, but there’s no way he’s pampered. Besides, living with Lovely Lacey for a week won’t exactly be tough.
Well, it shouldn’t be…
Now they’re living in close quarters, driving each other crazy. Both playing dirty to get what they want. While the building collapses around them, their attraction explodes. But this game has only one rule. No sleeping with the enemy.
Talia Hunter is the author of the Rich List Series, pairing whip-smart heroines with the heroes who deserve them. Her motto is, if you aren’t laughing, you aren’t doing it right.
She’s a city girl who’s moved to the country, and has plenty of bug spray to prove it. When she’s not writing, you’ll usually find her Googling important questions such as how to cope with a runaway zucchini crop (make fritters), and narrowing down exactly what kind of giant hairy spider might be eyeballing her from the washing tub.
If you like to enjoy plenty of laughs, sighs, and tears on your way to an HEA, sample her Rich List Series by downloading a free book from her website.
How to Pleasure a Playboy by Talia Hunter was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed the ride. The story was deep enough and well written. And the characters were interesting enough to keep my attention.
The plot should not be taken to seriously, because if I start to think too hard about it I assume I would find several things that were – how to phrase this – lets say not totally developed. I found myself several times thinking “really?”, which is a clear sign of that for me.
Due to the setup and some story strings I involuntary had a cast ready in my head – so if you want to know what my setup looked like, it would be from the movie : Two weeks notice … where “Dedicated environmental lawyer Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) goes to work for billionaire George Wade (Hugh Grant) as part of a deal to preserve a community center.”
And once that setup took residence in my head, I neglected to think about the parts of the plot that at first did not feel so well developed and I simply started going with the flow and that turned out quite well for me.
I think readers are going to enjoy the funny and witty banter between the leading characters so I would like to recommend this book to all the people that liked the movie I mentioned and to everybody who thinks this blurb would be something they might like to read.
