At least that's the plan, because in the perfectly oiled machine that is Rafael's lif

I liked this book ok. It'll never be a reread or a keeper but I found it interesting enough to finish and didn't feel the need to throw it against the wall (good thing because it was an ebook). I wasn't bored and it did have a few laugh out loud moments. Who could ask for more? Well I could but lately this is about as good as it gets for me.
Actually I have read a few keepers in the new releases but they are few and far between.

I didn't like how Libby kept saying she would never sleep with Rafael, how she absolutely hates him. Two seconds later she's all over him?! And Rafael, he hears this woman repeatedly reject him, clearly saying no. But apparently no means yes in this book. What kind of message does this send to readers?
absolutely loved it !! no intense story here, infact it's very light but entertaining and very enjoyable. i loved it !!no melodrama or exaggerations.
The Thorn in His Side just didn't click with me at any point, I just couldn't understand why the characters did what they did.

Rafael is a self-made millionaire and hasn't cared for anyone since his mother died. He meets Libby by accident when she comes in front if his car, he finds out that she is the daughter of the man whose company he is closing down.

Libby goes and confronts him and says bad things about him, to be fair Rafael tells her she has a chance to save the business by interning with
This was a 2.5 book it was ok but I felt that it didn't engage the reader and when I picked it up I had to remember what the book was about. The only redeeming time was when the hero doesn't make the heroine choose.
more like a 2.5 for me. this one has the heroine who sacrifices herself for her family's ultimate good, and they don't realize that she is sleeping with her new boss for THEM!
DNF. Too many "!" and a heroine that's a spoiled brat. Couldn't make it past the first few chapters.
