Irresistibly Broken by J. Saman
ABOUT THE BOOK
Aurelia Witlock is an ex-stepsister I forgot long ago. Until she shows up as a design intern at my fashion company. And that’s the easy part. The part where she stirs my lifeless blood, drawing me away from my soulless, miserable side is another. She has no business being here. Her presence far from a coincidence, the more I learn of her secrets and troubled past, the more perilous things become for me. I can’t trust her. I can’t fire her. And I can’t claim her full lips with mine. Now it’s a keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer situation. Except keeping this stunning woman who surprises me at every turn close isn’t as easy as it sounds. She’s a delicious load of sunshine wrapped in smiles and enticing laughter. And did I mention the mouth on her? The one that challenges me and calls me the worst sort of names. The one I can’t stop staring at or fantasizing about. I’m in trouble. So much trouble. And my former bandmates, my brothers in arms and blood, well, they’re at just as much of a loss as I am on how to fix this. So where does that leave me? In one hell of a mess with a woman who has the power to destroy everything. Including what’s left of my heart.
J. Saman is a word master, and I am a huge fan! I cannot tell you how many times her beautiful words and phrases stop me in my tracks.
You know the worst part of attraction? It’s how insidious it can be.
How do you spell trouble?
Aurelia Witlock. Impertinent mouth, cheeky, flirty. and sexy as hell. Any other intern. Any other intern. Any other intern. She thinks their chemistry is a lab experiment gone wrong. She loves poking the bear, and the bear is about to pounce. Can he trust her?
Zaxton Monroe. Grumpy cockblocker, rich, powerful, and her boss. Warning. Danger. Crash imminent. Behind his cool exterior, he’s wound tighter than a spring. He fights the attraction and when it’s unleashed, it’s amazing and consuming. It’s too good to be true. Will she be able to walk away when it’s time?
Holy cow! I adore Zax and Aurelia from their first encounter with a mugger to their seductive meeting in the hotel bathroom (Yummy!). I didn’t want this book to end. Aurelia is my hero with her sass and honesty gained from being on her own since she was 16 years old. All alone in the modeling world with nothing but her wits. Her engaging outbursts and tantalizing banter with Zax are so much fun as she finally finds someone who cares about her, and who sees her as the smart and talented woman that she is. She’s not just a pretty face. She is someone who loves fashion design and saves all her money for her own business. Zax lost his love to a traumatic event several years ago. He’s a broken man filled with a lot of pain and guilt that he hides with a grumpy exterior. It’s the straight-shooting, impudent, and observant young intern who recognizes his unhappiness. Watching him transform from a gruff asshole to a sexy, dirty-talking lover is intoxicating. Fate and misdeeds instigated by someone close to them bring them together again after an unfortunate past, but love will prevail and they get a well-deserved, and swoonworthy happy ending.
The supporting characters are a great addition to the book and I’m looking forward to seeing them in the series. Zax’s brother, friends, and fellow former band members will be a treat to read about. But my favorite character is the flamboyant, outspoken, and fantastically funny matchmaker, Lamar. He knows how to mess with Zax’s mind. Also, it was great seeing some of the Fitz family from the Boston’s Billionaire Bachelors series.
This story has it all; heartache, humor, angst, and so much love. I couldn’t put it down. I want more. I can’t wait to read more of this series. Pick up this book and take a look at all my other J. Saman reviews. They won’t disappoint.
Thank you to J. Saman for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
