Blurb: Derek Rosewood is never going to marry.
Fresh off the heels of a bitter divorce, there are only three things he gives a sh*t about: his daughter, his career, and his bachelorhood.
An attorney by trade and happily married to his job, he saves the drama for the courtroom and keeps women at an arm’s length. Their fragile, sequined hearts are safer that way. And besides, he’s not in any condition to offer them the love and attention they so foolishly seek from him.
Believe him, he’s not what they need. Not after what he’s been through.
It’s not until he’s assigned as the financial conservatorship for an aloof, enigmatic heiress that he finds his professional – and personal – boundaries pushed to the wayside. They’re all wrong for each other. Emotionally unavailable. Bitter. Jaded. And he’s supposed to look out for her best interests. Protect her.
But *this* wasn’t supposed to happen. And for that reason, Derek Rosewood pleads the fifth.
Review: If you are a Sugar Baby (sleep with/marry old men for money) by all means do you, girlfriend. I am not and will not judge you, however, I can’t deal with the thought of old, wrinkly, saggy balls so having them potentially near me is definitely a big NO MA’AM. So the rich young stepmother of this story is, of course, our villain and what a villain she was. Loved her cunning mind!!
We all know I love a good villain but in this story, it looks like the hero is my fav! Again I read this book based off of the blurb but apparently, there are 2 standalone books that proceed it. Derek, the hero, is awesome. He has every reason in the world to not want to marry or be in a serious relationship ever again and when you meet his ex-wife you will completely under
Derek, the hero, is awesome. He has every reason in the world to not want to marry or be in a serious relationship ever again and when you meet his ex-wife you will completely understand. What a B***h! He is a great lawyer and does his job and his women, well.
That’s until he gets his new case. It seems cut and dry and that is how he intends to handle it until he meets Serena. His new client. This part of the story is a bit forced to me. I understand physical attraction but I didn’t “feel” a true connection with these two characters. She was a bit weak and whiny to me. Separately they worked, together, it was just meh. I kept reading to see exactly HOW the stepmom set things up, the love story was a side note. That’s not to say it wasn’t good, it really was, but it was too predictable to be great. So 3.5 stars for this one folks. It would be a great in-between read.
