I loved this hot office romance!

One hot night with a stranger made their business meeting the next morning more than a little awkward. Cameron and Jackson only get more complicated from that point on. She's trying to help his company's PR (at the behest of his father's board) and he's just trying to run the company the way his grandfather would have wanted. Their chemistry is intense and beautiful, and I loved how their working arrangement forced them to get to know each other in a way that a st

When Cameron's one night stand shows up and turns out to be the woman sent to shadow him and his men, neither of them is thrilled with this little turn of events.

Office romances always have the chance of being supreme entertainment, and Best Laid Plans is definitely entertaining. And steamy. And fun. And has two wonderful leads. If you like your office romances with loads of chemistry, excellent leads and a little bit of angst, Best Laid Plans should definitely be on your TBR list.

Mr. Always in Control just stepped into a PR nightmare. For Cameron and Jackson a night of no-strings temptation leaves them flirting with disaster. Rebecca Hunter blurs the line between love and lust. Best Laid Plans is the story of two alphas fighting to stay in control. How do you keep your eye on the prize when heart and hormones tend to keep getting in the way? The heat is on and it's anybody's game.

This was such an awesome read! Cameron is a playboy billionaire. Jackson is hired by his Father and the board as a PR person to revamp him. They end up meeting at a hotel bar and spent a heated night together. The next morning Jackson walks in and they are both surprised. Cameron thought Jackson would be a guy, and they never expected to see each other again. I fell in love with Cameron. Once he fell in love, he fell hard and was willing to do whatever to make her believe it. What will happen wh ...more

From page 1 of this book, I was hooked.

Jackson is a PR Rep, she's headed to Australia to help out a company full of bad boys get their shit under control. The company is taking a hit with a bad boy reputation that it doesn't need. The day before her meeting with the company she takes a chance with a guy and goes back to her room with him. Turns out better than she expects. However, the next day she faces the same man in the boardroom. Jackson still has a job to do and that's what she is going t

So your CEO father is sending a PR expert to “review” your company, except your father is kind of a scumbag out to get you so this all reeks of a set up. You just happen to catch the eye of a sexy brunette at the bar and you find yourself having one incredible, no strings, anonymous hookup the night before the PR dude is coming to ruin everything. Then you go to work the next day and the PR guy shows up except he is a SHE and YOU SLEPT WITH HER LAST NIGHT.

Whoa, guys, how much fun is that intro?

So, so hot! Ms Hunter knows how to write love, sex and conflict with all the fabulous tension that drives you to keep turning those pages. I absolutely loved the whole security firm aspect, I mean who wouldn’t find ripped guys, suited and boooted with holsters hot! I certainly did. And I loved how strong a heroine Jackson turned out to be, I loved that she rocked the boardroom and would only flutter when Cameron was on the scene. She held her ground right up until the end and as for Cameron, he ...more

A one nighter no strings attach with a no namer really bites Jackson in the butt when he walks into his office and sees that beautiful girl he just spent the night with in his office. Will they be able to work together? Office romance disaster or is it?

This is was my first book by author Rebecca Hunter, but it will NOT be my last!! I need to know what happens to what quickly became some of my favorite characters! The author has the ability to hook the readers attention right from the very start and does not let the readers attention go! The story flows quickly, the plot is unique and the reader is unable to predict what is going to happen next!

The characters are relatable, they quickly become like friends to the reader and they leave the reade

This is a quick, no nonsense, one sitting, spicy romance from the Dare Imprint.  And, being completely, brutally honest - the story line is probably going to go the way you expected.

But.

Do not let that deter you.  The mark of a good romance writer is when they are able to make the story stand out, even when written in an extremely popular trope.  This is one such story.  This is driven by the characters - I really and truly enjoyed their development throughout the book.  And when the inevitable

Really enjoyed this book. It was almost a second time romance if you count the first night. Good storyline that flowed well and strong and vivid characters. I hope some are planned for future books. Very good read.

The chemistry between the main characters is out of this freaking world!

I felt that the author had the ability to convey true depth to the personalities of the characters bringing life and likability to every person.
The writing draws you in and keeps you interested until the end.

Jackson McAllister is sent to Australia to improve the image of Blackstone Inc, the private security firm that Cameron Blackstone is CEO of. Blackstone is expecting a man as pr rep. When Cameroon and Jackson become involved Jackson could be risking her career. Is there a future for them? Jackson's career is in New York and Cameron is based in Australia?

Control is an illusion and plans go awry when Love walks in

A flawed, sexy hero. A naive and bruised heroine. Both think they know what they want. Neither imagined they’d find it together. I loved the chemistry, the games, and the honesty. Great debut from Hunter!
