God’s gift by Terri George

Oh goodness… I really really liked and enjoyed reading this book! I give it 4.5 stars. I absolutely loved the characters ! They were so funny and yet, tough and strong at the same time. Great combination!
Sebastian is the ultimate God’s gift to any woman. Women want him and men want to be him! He is cocky, arrogant and sexy as heck. He loves woman… all shapes,sizes and ethnicities , he's not picky whatsoever. He just has one downfall … he doesn't do relationships, at a

I received an ARC for my honest review.

Sebastian Baines truly does think he's 'God's Gift' to women, with the things he says and the way he plays women you'd think he wouldn't be that desirable- but wow he is! He has this cheeky wit and charm he's a total British cheeky chap you just can't help but love. Sebastian's been offered the job of a life time over in the USA and when he starts working there he meets Italian hottie Gina. Gina can tell Sebastian is a player and stays away from him or trie

God’s Gift 1 by Terri George is the first book in the Taking it Stateside series. It's the first book I've read from this author. After reading the blurb I was hesitant to start reading this thinking it was going to be the same “woman falls in love with hot rich guy” but boy was I wrong! Ms. George wrote a fantastic novel that gripped me from the get-go.

Sebastian Baines seems to have it all! He's hot, wealthy, and has his pick of women any day of the week. When a job opportunity has him

God’s Gift 1: Taking It Stateside – Terri George

This is the story about a sexy guy with an English accent (Not British – English) - “English accent. Why do Americans insist on lumping us all together?

Sebastian Baines has been working for Fraser & Moore for 6 years in the UK. Fraser & Moore were subject to a hostile takeover by Berger & Schwartz.

The Chief Operations Officer Tom Wagner came to London from NYC to have meetings with some of the staff. When Sebastian was called in, he thought for sure, his job was safe until, Tom say "you'll be leaving Fraser & Moore" What Tom meant was Sebastian was being offered a great package to move NYC. He was able to keep his 5 weeks of Holiday allocation

Holy smokes this book it HOT!!!!!! I loved every minute of this book. One minute I was on the edge of my seat and then I was just smiling really big. Sebastian is my new book boyfriend, wow he is H.O.T. I wish I could hear his accent in real life. Sebastian lives in London at the beginning and now he is offered a job to work at the company that took over the company he is currently working at. Now he has to move to New York for a year.

God’s Gift 1: Taking it stateside by Terri George an amazing Five-Star Read its so much fun read Englishisms in a book set in America, its also nice to see a hot English dude, I know there are several out there but Sebastian seems to rock the union jack harder. I also love how the book kicks off with a glossary, they made me properly laugh out loud.
The book is set around Sebastian who grew up in a little English town where his dad washed the car and mowed the lawn on a Saturday and his mum made

What is it about the name Sebastian? That character name is up there with my favs, so hello I was sucked in from the very beginning. I’ve had the pleasure of reading previous stories from Terri George so I was stoked when I won this in a competition and got to read an Arc only weeks after its release. So nothing left to say but I love it, and need book 2 right now!

Sebastian Baines is the perfect definition of a playboy. He loves everything about women, especially bedding them. He is not a hearts and flowers type of guy. He is gorgeous, rich and every woman wants to bed him and every man wishes they could be him. He has worked his way through practically every willing woman in London.

Sebastian works in mergers and acquisitions and is at the top in his field, and when the company he works for is taken over by Berger & Schwartz, he is given a great opportun

God’s Gift 1 is the first book in a new series from Terri George.

Young, Hot, Loaded & British is a lethal combination, and that is exactly what Sebastian Baines is.
Sebastian is a charmer, whether that’s in business deals or women and he is at the top of his game. Given a new contract for one year Sebastian is taking it stateside. He plans to make some Mergers and acquisitions of his own and charm his way through the female population.

Sebastian Baines truly believes he's God's Gift to women, and with as many women that have fallen at his feet, he has no reason to ever doubt it. He works hard, and plays even harder, so his life is perfect. There are no clouds on the horizon, until the company that he works for is taking over. Luckily for him, he's at the top of his game so he's one of the few offered to stay on with the new company. He's offered a contract with a big raise, and he just has to go over to the US office for a yea ...more

God's Gift 1 is the story of an English player, Sebastian, and the Italian American woman, Gina, who steals his heart. To be honest, it took me a while to warm up to Sebastian. He's not cruel with women, just very casual, and I wasn't getting a lot of deep feelings from him. Also, they fell in love quickly and I wished we had been given more internal dialogue and got to experience that fall. I never quite figured out why they fell in love, beyond intense physical attraction.

But once they were i

If I have to choose a soundtrack for this book it would be the song "I'm an Englishman in New York"

Ladies and Gentlemen please meet Mr. Sebastian Baines.

He's smart, rich, gorgeous, charming, sexy and one hell of a businessman. Hearts and flowers are not his things. The usual cliché? No, not at all, this character is unique. I fell in love with him because he is a shark in business and at the same time a man with integrity, he is ambitious but knows his limits. I fell in love of his British charm

Oh I loved this book so much I don’t know if I can do it justice!

Terri George has smashed it again!

God’s Gift is an erotic romance, but Terri and her fantastic writing gives it an edge that other books in this genre are lacking. She simply has a way with words, giving this book class and finesse mixed with the down right dirty and scandalous.

I love how Sebastian (God’s Gift himself) keeps his British swagger and sense of humour throughout the story. He is such a strong character (and the perfect

God’s Gift by Terri George is a book that I give 4 stars.

Sebastian is a man whore plain and simple…. as the title says, he thinks he is God’s gift to the entire female population.
Gina is looking to be more that a one night stand, she knows how guys like Sebastian are and wants no part of it.
Can Sebastian go from man whore lifestyle to being in a monogamous relationship???? Let's see!!

His company decides to send him stateside to New York to work, free apartment, amenities, year long work contract with the salary to boot.

This book made me realise how British I actually am. I loved the glossary of British terms at the front. I was laughing and saying ‘Yea, I say that’ to most of them. This book was sooo good and now I am just waiting for the second book to come out because the cliffhanger has me in such suspense right now.

I Really enjoyed this book and it's titled is Spot On. Yep God's Gift is about a great looking guy who has the world by the tail and has all the right moves with the ladies. Well most ladies. Sebastian takes a promotion in the United States and meets Gina and boy does he want her to be a notch on his belt. But, Gina will prove a little more work than our guy is used to and she for sure isn’t the one night stand type that Sebastian prefers. Or is she?

Sebastian Baines is your ultimate bad boy with lots of money.
When he comes to the states for a job he may get more than he bargained for.

Sebastian is arrogant, sexy and cocky and doesn’t do relationships. He did make me laugh at times with his antics.
Gina is a co-worker and is very independent. She knows the kind of guy Sebastian is and knows just how to handle him. So she thought.
