He doesn't know she exists but she has a strategy to make him take notice. Best laid plans go awry though and Summer finds her fate may be leaning in another direction. You are pulled into the family dynamics which include a few bumps along the way. Jacqueline has a story line as well that was a surprise I wasn't expecting.
There are a few stories interwove in this book. I thought this was a wonderful read. I do need to go back and read the first four to get to know some of the characters that had me smiling in this book. Definitely worth reading....more

I gave this one a 3.5, I struggled with Hannah's idiot mother she is like a hot mess and it was so out there it detracted from Misha and Hannah. Overall a good story, could have done less with Hannah's mom though....more
Everything about CEO and player Jason King grated on Charlotte Smith's nerves. From his way of only calling her Smith, to the constant battle she hasEverything about CEO and player Jason King grated on Charlotte Smith's nerves. From his way of only calling her Smith, to the constant battle she has going after the same clients with their marketing firms. When Charlotte goes about knocking him off his game, the table turns but so does her feelings for King.
This was pretty good, I did question what she saw in him when he was such a player. The other side of it was what King found intriguing with Charlotte, she is fairly rude to him initially. Regardless the overall story is intriguing and I thought the chemistry was there between the two characters. Had a twist I was not expecting, worth picking up....more
