Amy's Review:

Well, well, well ... What can I say besides the fact that I am addicted.

The Fifty Shades of Grey references, I just don't see it. I feel like these are totally different books.

Erica is strong and sexy and brilliantly smart, she just doesn't know it. I seriously love female characters like her!
Blake is straight up amazing and fiercely rich, but that isn't even the best part of him. Beneath his strong male exterior is a heart of gold, filled with opportunities and devotion that barely bubbles to the surface.

Sparks fly when these two meet, quite literally, for just a second. I remember thinking, oh man, I hope this isn't another sappy love story .. and it was NOT. This story is multi - dimensional and filled with details about every character and every scene and every relationship. Erica, an entrepreneur has relationships with her friends, with her pseudo-family, with her business associates and of course with Blake .. who can make or break her. Her past is sad and full of heartbreaking realities that I hated to read. I hated them so much, but once I knew them, I found Erica's character so much stronger! Blake being the man he is wants to be a fixer. He wants to buy companies he wants, when he wants. He wants to own things, in every.single.way.
The writing in this book was fabulous. I loved this unique spin on a classic love story.

Man ... all I can say is read this darn book! Read the whole series


Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on how to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn't prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who's seemingly determined to derail her presentation. Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he's used to getting what he wants with very little resistance. Captivated by Erica's drive and unassuming beauty, he's wanted nothing more since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if that means sacrificing a level of control he's grown accustomed to. But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica's past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she's fought so hard to create.
