Publisher's Summary

Love was no longer on the menu for Camilla Augustina. 

After her fiance calls off the wedding not once but twice, Camilla's had enough. In a brazen move, she takes a new position in the windy city of Chicago, leaving her parents, friends, and ex in a bittersweet goodbye. Adapting to her new surroundings isn't easy, but as Camilla settles in, a chance encounter with an infamous playboy throws her off balance and rattles her world. She hadn't expected to be drawn so meticulously to another, but denying the magnetism that lures her is a futile fight. 

As President of VFC Energy, a Fortune 500 company, Hunter Valentine is at the top of his game. The renowned bachelor holds no secrets about his risque rendezvous, and his allegiance is saved for family only. However, when Hunter spots Camilla Augustina, dining alone at the breakfast hut in his building, he can't explain the adulation that runs through his core and shakes his entire world. Lust never weakened him like this, and the inclination of love at first sight was silly. But when Hunter decides to prove the sudden rapture is unreal, he may find himself enamored by love.  

Contains mature themes.

Lifetime Movie

I love a good black romance novel, but this was too Hollywood. A blackman driving in a tornado....just a little too much for me to relate. The narrators were good....Jakobi did his “thang” as usual. Also there were many missed opportunities on character building. don’t know if I would purchase the next series. Another thing, the narrators more so read the book as opposed to getting into the actual characters.

Loved

Loved the book!!! I wish there was more to the ending!!! The author took it's time for to understand the couple but when it was just getting really good it seemed rushed at the end. I felt a little cheated.

NO!

The female narrator is not good at all! She takes away from the story line and the book. It was hard to finish this book. I love Jakobi Diem and will listen to anything he narrates..... but this one was not good. He could not carry her.....

Loved It

With Jakobi Diem and Wesley Siobhan
narrating , you can't go wrong. This book was okay, if not very predictable. No surprises. No real drama. It's just, okay. The two narrators elevated it.

Umm! It was just OK

My first irritation was that the author used Camilla too many times in the story. "She" and "her" would've sufficed in about 50% of the mentions. The story was rushed, and needed to be fleshed out more; the love occurred too quickly and was unrealistic. I love the narrators and they made it palatable, His Mom grilling the women upon the initial meeting about giving her sons babies added to the "umm".

Sexy characters and good chemistry, but the writing is too much

I enjoyed the characters and their chemistry. I liked their backstories. But i felt like the writing style was so bulky and overdone. Like the goal was to pack as many three syllable words into one sentence as possible, when one would do. Despite that, the narration is amazing. The voices are so well done and the actors really did their thing. It’s an enjoyable read and I will probably listen to more in the series.

Not for Me

I cannot understand why this book got so many stars. I got up to Chapter 10 and the author is STILL describing the characters bodies. I get they are both very attractive but...10 chapters in..oh please... is there an actual story. I really wanted to enjoy this book ...so disappointed.

Kicking off a series with a bang

A brand new to me author and what a start! This really was a fun, cute, pretty low angst, spicy read about a CEO of an energy company and a new TV reporter. Their connection was instant even if their relationship is a bit of a slower burn. This was a whole lot of fun and a lot of threads are put down for future books in this series. Which I will be picking up. For sure.
