Rating: 2.5 Stars

While some people may find this an enjoyable read, unfortunately, I have to say that I did not. I hate writing a review for a book if I didn't enjoy it, but I feel that as a reviewer, it is important to explain the reasoning behind the rating.

As hard as I tried, I just could not connect with the character or the story. The main character, Sheila, is the CEO of her father's company, and she is

I liked this book. It is much different than I was use too but I love to step outside of the box. This is a new author to me and she has intrigued me so I will be reading more by her. This book was crazy sexy, naughty, suspenseful, mysterious, naughty, steamy, and full of mystery.

This is Sheila's story. Sheila is a take charge, high powered business woman who was newly appointed as CEO of her father's business. Sheila knows what she wants and accepts no less. This is true in all of he

The CEO by Niquel
At 27 years old, Sheila Quinn is the newest CEO of Quinn National. Sheila doesn’t let anything stand in the way of what she wants. She is a strong woman who takes charge in every aspect of her life. Sheila runs into a few bumps in her both her personal life and running her company. A chance run-in with the man she almost married a few years ago leaves her head reeling. Emotions were not something she dealt with, so Sheila tries to focus on what she can control: sex. There is a b

Hmmm. A strong, confident female CEO is a change from the norm. Sheila is hard working and taken over her dad's company and is confident in her sexuality.

At times the story felt stilted, with something major happening at work and instead of resolving it, she would go out with one of the many men wanting her attention. An impressive social life for someone so busy in work.

It was a quick read and was at times a hot read. I found Sheila to be a cold individual, who would do pretty much a

Wow The Ceo was a great read. Shelia is a strong no holds barred characters. She is beautiful, confident and cocky. I wasn't sure what I thought about her at first. She oozes confident and always gets what she wants.

Shelia runs Quinn National, which is an oil company. She wears her boss pant very well. There are quite a few men that are in her life. Their is her ex, Liam, her intern Ryan, the new VP Jack, and Keith. I'm not really sure what Keith is beside a little creepy. I loved Liam. He is s

Wow! That's the best I can say... WOW!

When I read the blurb and decided to read this book, I kind of knew what I was getting into, but once I started, there was no stopping.

The book was filled with sexy men that have secrets and a strong, independent woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. The story captures you from the start, getting to know Shelia Quinn and what it is that drives her to succeed.

As the story progresses, you can't help but wonder what will happen next. Once the

WOW What a story!!! I've read her other stories but they didn't prepare me for this book. Author Niquel outdid herself with this one!! Sheila is The CEO and never for one moment think she's won't do what has to be done for the company or her family. This is one tough gal who enjoys sex and shots when not at the office but don't think she's easy because she's always in charge.

The CEO was WOW amazing. I was hooked on page one all the way to the end. I like the different twist and turns, it really kept me on my toes. Sheila is a feisty woman and I would never want to cross her. She has so much going on in her life and things going on with her family. This is the first book I have read from this author and WOW, she is fantastic and brilliant. I don’t want to give away the story but this book is a MUST READ.

Review - The CEO by Author Niquel

4 Stars

Sheila Quinn is the CEO on Quinn National. She's a take charge, no nonsense, strong woman. Don't mess with her! She loves her family and her company above all things and will stop at nothing to keep them safe!

This is a sexy, suspenseful read A roller coaster ride of ups and down as Sheila battles to protect her company at all cost, including some not so "on the up and up" moves.

I was provided an ARC of this book. This is the first book I have read by this author. I liked the premise of a strong female CEO that took charge. The story lacked depth and flow for me. There were character inconsistencies that I couldn't get past. The best way to describe my feeling while reading was jumpy. Sheila would start to confront someone on their attitude or actions but there was no follow through, she would storm off and then suddenly it was the next day. This story was lacking for m ...more

I received an advance copy and was completely blown away. Niquel brings forth an astounding independent woman who will let nothing stand I her way to get what she wants. She tackles being CEO in a man's world with professional dominance. Without giving any spoils away I hope she chooses her right companion. Thank you Niquel for an outstanding story, I recommend tho book to all readers.Niquel

I loved this book it was fan-bloody-tastic and Niquel is a wonderful author and she weaves a story that you will love.
Sheila is a great character you will love her and she don't take shit from no one cos she is the one in charge, and as you read the story you will find out who she can and can't trust, but you will find is that its one hot as hell read :)
Girl power!!!

I really liked this book. A woman with all the power, she did what she wanted and took what she wanted from who ever she wanted.
The only thing that I didn't love was the male characters, to weak for me . I did like where the story went though I didn't see that coming.

This was an easy read, greatly written and has a lot of emotion! Shelia is the CEO of her fathers company and she loves what she does, but she has needs that only a man can fill! She doesn't want a relationship due to a bad breakup and she finds herself in a heap of trouble and when you find out how and who you'll be surprised!

"Life will always be full of unfinished roads, but it's up to you to pave the perfect path to fulfill your destiny."

Cold, detached and willing to be do anything to ensure her success Sheila uses her feminine wiles to get what she wants. Taking over her father's company as CEO she uses everything in her arsenal to make the business a success. When money goes missing from the business account is everything as it seems or is something going awry?

The CEO is a fast easy read, Sheila is not likeable

I enjoyed this book because it's the first book I've read where the female is what they call the alpha male. Sheila is strong, gets her way and she's in control with the men in her life. There are many men in her life but which one can she trust.

There is some sad scenes in the book but through it all Sheila is strong thought out the book. I liked that Sheila took things into her own hands and got the job done. There's many twists and turns and it keeps you guessing thought out the book and want

She ends up taking over her fathers company. She is not someone to mess with. She has been around the block a bit and has no problems sleeping with a different guy every night. The story was good but I just couldn't really get into it. I felt like there was a lot going on. Who wouldve thought it was going to end like that.

Wow!!! What a book. What a powerful lady. She seems like she's a scary type that makes you wanna run and hide but deep down she's got a sweet side. It's well hidden though. That's my thoughts anyways.

In the business world we always here about Alpha male CEO. In this story we meet Shiela Quinn. This is her point of view as CEO her story of intrigue, mystery achievement and sex. An interesting point of view for a story.
Sarah Reads "Reading in Sarah's Corner"
It only took me a few hours to knock this book out. Author Niquel had a great premises laid out for us. She had a very dominate leading lady who had to deal with solving not only her work issues but handing her family business. When times became tough, everyone looked to her leading lady to solve the issues.

For some reason, I just could not bond with the heroine Sheila Quinn. And when this happens I just cannot connect with the story in a way I truly like to. It does not mean this is a bad story
Romance Readers Retreat
This book offered so much more but just failed to deliver on the overall story and to follow through on many of the tendrils of the story. The writing was stilted and the chapters were short and so choppy that I was left wondering what had happened at the end of most of them. This is a shame as the premise of the story was good especially after all the male CEO stories out there but as is often the case the character of a female CEO is offered up as just being a nasty bitch to everyone.

WOW I did not expect that ending !! So Sheile is super feisty and a pretty bad A$$ businesswoman. She is not lacking in power but she does use this as a mask to hide her once wounded heart. Out of the 3 siblings she was the chosen one to take over the family business. ON her way to making big changes she is faced with many hurdles and her journey is not lacking in the sex department. We get to see how she works and also see a little bit of her real self. There is plenty of drama and also heartac ...more

The CEO by Niquel is a standalone novel. It's the first book I've read from this author and I have to say I was completely surprised. When I read the blurb, I wasn't too sure how I felt going in-But I am so glad I did.

Sheila Quinn is the CEO of Quinn National. Once her dad retired, she stepped right into his shoes. Sheila gets her way-no matter what she has to do to get it. She’s had her heart broken which has made her into someone who doesn't want a relationship at all so she just uses

I didn't read the blurb on this book. I just jumped in! I don't know what I was expecting, but it was anything other than what I got! What a great great read! First, I was not expecting the main character to be a woman (guess I've read too many hot dominant male CEO books), second I was not expecting this woman to be so Bad A! She was just so cool! I think I might have a girl crush!

2.5 stars. When I started the story, I had one impression of the CEO. She was young, independent and a heroine that I could cheer for. The writing style was good, and it started off well. I didn't mind her sleeping around for pleasure. She seemed bold and able to hold her own in the business surrounded by men.

Then there was the sleeping around for business and other ruthless behavior that I was not expecting. I continued to read hoping for something better to occur, but it didn't. This is defini
