Naughty or Nice by Rachael Stewart

Naughty or Nice


She’s setting the terms…

In business and pleasure!

Lucas Waring was my brother’s best friend—before he broke my heart and betrayed my family. Yet one glance from those dark, intense eyes, and that bolt of aching need returns. Now Lucas wants my business. But the nice Eva he knew is gone forever and naughty Eva wants her cake, and a taste of deliciously hot Lucas, too. Only my heart’s about to pull the biggest betrayal of all…


Welcome to my stop on the Naughty or Nice Publication Day Push Tour!  I am a big fan of second-chance romances and I devoured this captivating and sensual story about two people who are determined to prove their worth after 10 years of lies and heartbreak.

Evangeline Beaumont’s heart was broken 10 years ago on her eighteenth birthday when she was rejected by Lucas Waring, the only man she ever loved. Five years ago when her family believed Eva’s spoiled and reckless brother, Nate, accused Lucas of leaving the company because of a bad financial decision, Lucas went off to make his own fortune. Now when Eva wants to start her own company free of her father’s and brother’s interference, she knows that Waring Holdings’ backing is her best offer. Will she be able to convince him it’s just business?

The Beaumonts became Lucas Waring’s only family when his mother passed, so he naturally was groomed to work for them as well. However, 5 years after he rejected Evangeline’s naive invitation, he was accused by Nate Beaumont (Eva’s brother) of leaving the company high and dry when they were financially destitute. Now when Eva’s new product needs backing, he is determined to be the company she picks against her father and brother’s wishes. Will he be able to keep the partnership professional?

The story is told in first person from Eva’s and Lucas’ points of view. I love the character development in this book because the reader is immersed in the angst and heartache of the two lovers. Eva’s confidence and naughty persuasion are refreshing and Lucas’ vulnerability and magnetism are stimulating.

Rachael Stewart is a fabulous force to be reckoned with. Naughty or Nice is an emotional ride full of style, intelligence, passion, love, and devotion. A fantastic combo for this reader. Recommend highly!

Thank you to Ms. Stewart for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
