Overview

Haven’t we all experienced a moment when we’ve said something we wish we could take back? What if you were an eleven-year old girl and thought that moment caused the death of someone you cherished? Allison Ross, now a twenty-nine year old art gallery owner in Chelsea, was that young girl. The sudden death of her father in a suspicious car crash begins the unraveling of the tightly-wound world she has built around herself. This present day tragedy raises the unresolved issue of her Uncle Joey's untimely demise, for which she feels responsible. Adding to her turmoil, she is shocked to learn that she's been named interim CEO of her father's luxury jet company. Past and present blur as she fights to maintain control of a company she wants no involvement in while she struggles to keep her gallery afloat.

Allison's neighbor and good friend, Kenyon James, bakes butter-filled goodies culled from her Bubby's recipe files, and teases her that one day someone is going to come along who will be able to break through the armor she wears over her heart. Enter Alexander Coventry, a brilliant barracuda who is the prime candidate to take her father's place as CEO of RossAir Industries. Alex is the charmingly handsome son of a wealthy Atlanta family whose father taught him defeat is not an option. Allison and Alexander have two things in common—they both feel the need to prove to themselves to their fathers, and they're both incredibly stubborn. His motives toward her and the company get muddier by the day as these two opinionated forces dance around one another as they jockey for power, fall in love, and search for her father's killer. The story reaches its climax with a return to the cliffs of Frenchman's Bay in Bar Harbor, the scene of her early childhood trauma.

I really enjoyed this breezy, fun story. The dialogue is snappy and the characters are more developed and interesting than those found in typical chick-lit . A great rainy day or beach read.

Barely put the book down. I was taken with the writing style, the characters and their stories. Wanted the story to go on and on and continue to see the characters unfold! Definitely cried a little, laughed a lot and throughly enjoyed this book!

I know the description says that Alex and Allison fall in love, but very little of the story was actually about them falling in love. In fact, at the end of the story, they seem like they're barely beginning to get along and like each other. The story was mainly about a girl who has issues with her father, other people, and guilt. Kinda boring and hops around a lot. No real satisfactory conclusion.

Not really sure what to say about this... I had many issues with this book (more than the 3 I've listed). First of all, I had to force myself to keep reading after the first 5 chapters, it was poorly written and so choppy it was extremely hard to figure out what exactly was going on, which is a shame because this book was full of some really good ideas. The whole book seemed very rushed from idea to idea and random guy to random guy. Secondly, it was written only in Allison's POV, but every now and then there would be some random parts written in another character's POV. For me personally, I cannot stand all the choppy POV changes. Lastly, I absolutely disliked Allison. I feel she wasn't a completely developed character: she has multiple personalities, she's bipolar, has extreme moodswings, etc., I don't know how to describe her, it was just very hard to like her and her attitude/behavior with her mom and Alex was unbelievable. I was really excited to read this, but felt very underwhelmed and shocked at how poorly executed it was. I think I was more disappointed with how Ally and Alex's relationship progressed and the lack of solving her dads murder. Two stars because this book had lots of original ideas in it and with some editing and more details/character development this book could be really good.

This was an awful book. It jumped around in a non-sensical manner, the writing came off like the author has ADD. There were many incomplete thoughts, sections that were started and never finished, to the point that I thought I got a bad e-copy with missing pages. Scrolled back & forth several times, thinking I misses something. I didnt. The author tried to incorperate family drama, love, murder, and suspense into a relatively short book, and without any character devolpment. It only got 1 start from me, because entering a rating was required. It would have gotten zero.

Allison and Alex spar and banter like a couple of pros who have all the answers, except when it comes to love. There were some surprisingly tender moments here as well. All in all, a terrific read, and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!

Sharply-written with well-developed characters made this read a cut above the average beach read. Allison and Alex vibrated with energy and I really enjoyed the sparks between them

Good story and learned a few things on Jewish tradition. Wasn't over the top on the rich influence; sort of a modern regency type romance novel.

I truly enjoyed this book. Hard to put down. The story moved quickly and never bogged down. The characters came alive, and I felt like I knew Allison and Alex. If you read it, you will enjoy it.

First I read this author, loved it-talks about just living and enjoying life- also speaks about doing what you love without worrying about what others will think- something i am learning to do in my 40's and wondering what took me so long to get here

We have Allison Ross, a twenty nine year New York old gallery owner and doing pretty well for herself. After the death of her father, CEO of RossAir, Allison has major things to deal with, one of which is selecting a new CEO. In comes handsome, green-eyed Alex Coventry, the apple she’s not sure she should bit into… I wasn’t thrilled by the story. For a lack of a better explanation, it was very “wordy”. Allison is very intelligent, business-wise, but has tons of personal drama which overwhelms the book. Her judgment and thought process are a bit annoying. I didn’t really get invested in Allison’s and Alex’s relationship. I was often confused on if they liked each other at all and if there was true attraction. I found myself enjoying her interactions between her best friend Kenyon and even with billionaire Michael Essex and his daughter Kaitlin. I didn’t like the fact that the information regarding her father’s death was unraveled in, maybe 3 pages of the 499. Even when the information is revealed, you’re like “huh? And who are you again?”. The story did have potential. For me, it just wasn’t fulfilling.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings One young woman is hit with a load of responsibility when her father passes away suddenly.  While the investigation into his untimely death is going on, she must take the lead in their family business while trying to avoid the short list of men who want the CEO position.  She wasn't just sitting around, so while she takes on these new responsibilities she must also maintain a gallery that she owns and operates - this makes for some good laughs and rough tears with balancing time.
