It was all one giant eye-roll.
The writing was extremely choppy and really hard to follow at times. It was as if when the story went from the author's head to the page a lot of little details went missing. Everything probably made perfect sense inside her head, on paper, not so much.
The characters felt flat. Like they were trying waaaay too hard to be quirky and flawed, so they could be relatable and adorable. Instead, everything felt forced and plastic.
Maggie was so flaky that it got annoying re

Maggie and Vincent WOW Talk about Vincent being the sappy one when all along I would think it was Maggie. Nope. The thing is that Vincent has had a crush on her since high school and yet Maggie does not even remember him. So yeah I think Vincent is lovable and a sappy guy.

I like Maggie. I think her character is written well. She's not clingy, whiny a fragile and doormat kind of female. She's all the opposite and I like her spirit where she's totally cool within being mean unless provoked. Plus I

Recommends it for: For those that like Arkadie's style.
My rating for this book is a 4.50
This author has a slight twist in her writing style, that really adds to the enjoyment of the book. I liked how she kept Belmont and Daisy story going in this book, as I really like those two as a couple. This time the main character is Belmont's cousin, Maggie. Maggie is a career woman in NYC and is enjoying a love affair with a former high school classmate Vincent. Vincent just happens to be her new boss. At first, Maggie does not know Vincent is engaged. I was

Not as bad as “Find Her, Keep Her” but still lacking. Daisy and Belmont return with their nauseatingly constant kissing.

Belmont secures Maggie a management position at a media corporation, where Vincent who has had a crush on Maggie since her brief stay at his high school is the president. She’s enjoying her new role and seems very intelligent and I like her professionally, however when it comes to Vince she’s too weak and accepting. They’re on a business trip in Aspen and get caught in a snow s

I enjoyed this book, when reading I was hoping for more information on Belmont and Daisy, I think I would have preferred a second book about these characters as I dont think they were fully explored, rather than a few sentences about them in this story.
This book didnt really capture my attention like the first did.

I'm not usually one for a boss manipulating his position to get the "girl of his dreams" to work for/with him, but I've got to say that there was something about HIM, that made me fall for Vincent Adams. Perhaps it was the peeks inside his head but nonetheless Vincent Adams made me believe that guys can want and yearn for a relationship too. ...more

I've been getting a bit fussy over books just lately, too much gratuitous sex, appalling grammar, etc etc. But not this one! I was grabbed from the beginning by the sassy heroine Maggie. Probably because we seem to share a line in put-downers. She reminded me of myself but in a younger, more beautiful way.

Vincent has secretly been in love with Maggie since high school and now chance gives him a way of making her notice him at last.

This a sexy, sassy, funny book that fits in the series bu

Twists and turns

Something about the progression of their love story bothers me. Was it that she fell in love so fast after barely remembering the man whom she met 12 years ago? Was it because he didn't end his other relationship fast enough for me? Was there not enough sexy scenes? Did I not fancy the main guy myself? I'm not sure.

I do appreciate that there was a happy ending, that there was no abuse and that it was a good length for me.

The hilarity continues

If you enjoy humor, steam, tongue in cheek situations then this one is for you. I read the first book in this series because of the negative reviews and was pleasantly surprised and that led to me reading book 2 of the series and I am glad I did. What is reading romance if the premise is not far fetched and we can lose ourselves from reality for an hour or two. Grab this one and indulge your curiosity 4 Stars from me.

I really like this author’s characters. They are fun, witty, and sassy. However, some of the descriptive words she uses during sex scenes really take me out of the story. “Poke me with his penis” is one. I just don’t know if I can read more books by this author due to this. It just takes me too much out of the story.

Wonderful!

This book is the first time I've read anything by this author. I was happily surprised. Little machinations going on by Mr. Vince. Totally an alpha dude. Career professionals that anyone can relate to. Loved all the characters. Cruella La Bitch even got her 15 minutes of fame. Recommend this book to everyone. Now I must read another of Z.L. Senator's books!

I love Maggie, she's a really great character and I got really sucked into following what she got up to in this book. It's great that the characters from the first book make an appearance in this book, it makes things feel comfortable while moving forwards. I enjoyed seeing where this story fitted into the the whole world already set up. I can't wait to see where it goes next. ...more

Rushed

The book information says it's a Charlie story with a sprinkling of Jack/Daisy and Maggie/Vince. It really is Maggie/Vince with a sprinkle if Charlie. For me it was a rushed storyline to get the two together and turned blah. Robert is a jerk, Monroe is funny, Jack swoops in when he's needed. Not a book for me but not a bad book either.

I really really tried to at least read a couple of chapters, but I don't like the writing style of the author. It's the second book of her that I tried and it's the same with the first one. Never finished one of them. It is almost like a fifteen year old girl has written them. Change or adjust the language in The books is my advice. ...more

Quirky"!

Vincent and Maggie are going after the whole package. However, I have to say that he is unavailable for the taking. Maggie is feisty and is forever putting him in his place, which I found super funny. Like I said quirky.

A strange book, for me. I read it straight through, not unfamiliar to me, yet I really wasn't thrilled with it. Too many people playing too many games, guess I am glad not to live in the big bad city. ...more

Really cheesy and not at all realistic (The pace was really fast and they "fell in love" way too fast. It was lust plain and simple). I'm not sure why I finished it, other than my curiosity of how it would end got the better of me. ...more

Pretty much the same storyline as 50 Shades. Didn’t understand the main character’s appeal, did enjoy her career development but found her personality to be quite bland until the end. Still could not put the book down for some reason, I did enjoy it overall.

Poorly Written

A story that kept me interested enough to read the entire book, but that was poorly written. Not worth rereading or continuing to read the rest of the series.
