Can’t Buy Me Love by Maggie Marr
Review by: Rauncher on retainer, Sassy Jack
As a rising star in the galaxy of the corporate world, Meg Parson would seem to have it all. She’s beautiful, brilliant, and incredibly focused. But all that she’s worked so hard for threatens to come crashing down around her when her long-suppressed attraction to her ruthless yet sexy-as-all-hell boss is brought to the surface on a last minute business trip. Meg knows better than to get involved with the enigmatic CEO Cole Jackson. But Meg soon finds that when Cole sets his sights on something he wants, be it company or woman, all bets are off. As Meg and Cole slowly come to terms with the depths of feeling each has for the other, a pleasingly sigh-inducing romance ensues.
This short romance is a fast, easy read. The characters of Meg and Cole are complex, yet relatable. The natural inclination is to root for these two to get together almost from the first page, and the rest of the book does not disappoint! It starts out with all the excitement of a forbidden office romance, quickly turns steamy, and then goes surprisingly emotional as the couple deals with some deep-seated trust issues that almost keep them from attaining their elusive happily ever after… I won’t spoil the ending for you, but I will say that you don’t have to worry about it being unsatisfying. That being said, I highly recommend this book for your next weekend at the beach. Go ahead, get gooey. Emotionally, or otherwise.
