Alicia is in Atlanta trying to build her reputation as a successful PR rep. One of her best friends introduces Alicia to her brother in law, Richmond. Alicia agrees to show Richmond around as he has just relocated from New York. The two start up an easy friendship that leads to something more.
The premise of the book sounds good. Two career minded people working on a project together. They fight and have this amazing tension and chemistry together. Sounds like a winner? Yes, but unfortunately this was not the case here. Alicia and Richmond fall into an easy work relationship and spend most of their time together. They eventually fall into bed and proclaim their love for one another.
The author throws in a contrived blackmail scheme that falls short to bring some drama and angst to the situation. I didn’t understand why Richmond didn’t call anyone in to help as he has all of this money and resources. He continued to entertain his blackmailer. The whole scheme was wrapped up too nicely at the end.
I hate when I’m utterly disappointed in a book. This one just didn’t measure up. The writing style is very basic. The characters fell flat and I didn’t connect with the main characters or the entourage of secondary characters. They all acted like college students who were in each other’s business. Overall, the story is forgettable and I don’t recommend this to anyone.
