Publisher's Summary

I'm Maxon Reed - real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn't high-profile and big-money, I pass. Now that I've found the property of a lifetime, I'm jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success - my brother. I'll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who's just his type.

Sassy college senior Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff's perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I'm having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don't tolerate. But she's beyond charming. I more than want her; I'm desperate to own her. I'm not even sure how drastic I'm willing to get to make her mine - but I'm about to find out. Contains mature themes.

Maxon Reed! Oh, my!!!

What a great story. Maxon and Keely are immediately attracted to each other. Maxon, used to having his way with a certain type, can't explain his need to have Keely, but he isn't fighting it. Keely, a free spirit, isn't usually attracted to Maxon's Type A personality. Once Maxon decides and accepts that Keely is what he wants, nothing will keep him from her...or so he thinks. I'm not a fan of angst, but there's some in this story, but it's well-placed, and didn't detract from the story for me. Hot, steamy, and a bit complicated.

Christian captures these characters beautifully. I love the alpha males that Shayla creates, and I'm really enjoying this series. Can't wait to dive in to Maxon's brother, Griffith's story.

Disappointed

I'm a fan but this book just didn't measure up IMO to the author's other works. Maybe I'll try again at a later date.

Best SB book I've listened to!

This was a great listen! Impressed with the presence of so much story and not so much overwhelming sexy time... though just enough. Go SB!

Great listen and new series

This is the first book in a new series by Shayla Black and it's a great beginning. Maxon Reed is an real estate mogul trying to one up his biggest competition Griff (who happens to be his brother). He decides to put a woman in his way who happens to be Keeley Kent. But he doesn't expect to fall for her himself. I also love the other characters in this book. The backstory and the future story's are what makes this such a great book and now series to come. This was a book that you cannot put down. I cannot wait for Griffs book.

Different yet so appealing~

This is one of my favorite authors. This time around Shayla Black has taken a different path in storytelling. Don't get me wrong it's still hot and it has very romantic picture but the path she's taken is quite different than what I've experienced in the past with her. I highly recommend this book and if the next book is as good as this the series. Shayla Black and her books will always be in my top 5 must reads.
