ARC Review of Start Me Up by Maggie Riley

This book was so fun. I felt like I haven't read a character like Libby in a long time. She was vibrant and exciting to fall in love with. She had such a fun personality you couldn't help but become enamored with her. Frankly, I felt bad for Jack, he had no idea what he was in for. This wasn't your normal fall in love with the boos type of read. It was cooky and fun with a few smalls secrets lying in wait. I found that it was a fun ride to be on. Journeying with libby and being inside her head while she was writing, then flipping the switch and being inside Jack's head. They were so different and yet you knew from he start they were going to be great together. Maggie Riley delivers a novel that you have fun reading. You fall in love with the characters, and by the end you love the world it takes place in. I would love for some stories from the secondary characters and heck, even that more of the cat.

He's arrogant, sexy and aloof. And now I have to write his book.

Jack Willis is every bit the start-up prodigy—seriously smart, inventive, and totally sexy. With his incredible mind, extraordinary body, and a bank account with more zeroes than you can count, he would give the sharks from Shark Tank a run for their money. Everyone from Wall Street investors to drooling house wives wants a piece of him. Everyone except Libby Hanson, that is. Libby Hanson is a crafty, curvy bombshell, more accustomed to macrame and crochet than fine dining and stealth engineering. She reads, she writes, she drinks wine with her cat...and she's never even heard of Jack Willis until she lands an interview that will change her life forever. Jack needs a book written—and fast. His sexy new car is about to be released on the market, and a New York Times bestselling book would be the perfect marketing push to get his business to the next level. He could have any writer he wants: but he wants Libby. She's feisty, gorgeous, and has a way with words like nobody else. To write his book, Libby has to see everything he does. She gets thrust into a brand new world of A-list red carpet events, meetings with executives, and long nights in the workshop that grow increasingly intimate. But to write a bestseller, Libby needs more. Their connection is off the charts, but she'll need to discover the real Jack—the man behind the inventions, the man who's steadily stealing her heart. Jack has secrets—lots of them—and Libby will do anything to get the scoop. With Jack's true nature coming to the surface, Libby finds herself torn—will she expose the man everyone is dying to get the dirt on? Or will she protect the man she is slowly but surely falling for?
