Jen gathered her strength and followed Hagan through the house. The easy flow of his long limbs showed incredible grace for a big man. So tempting, yet, she couldn't pursue him. Not now, not with everyone watching her, they expected her to act like a grieving widow. If she didn't, they'd forever brand her as an unloving wife.

Jen gathered her strength and followed Hagan through the house. The easy flow of his long limbs showed incredible grace for a big man. So tempting, yet, she couldn't pursue him. Not now, not with everyone watching her, they expected her to act like a grieving widow. If she didn't, they'd forever brand her as an unloving wife.

She hated the farce, but she had no choice. No one knew her marriage had turned into a sham long before Craig died.

A few minutes later, she walked outside and breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, with the showing done, she could return Hagan to his office. She locked the front door and stored the key in the lockbox. Spinning on her heels, she faced Hagan.

At the end of the porch, one foot already positioned on the first step with a hand out to assist her, he waited. "So, Jen, since we're done for today, why don't we meet tomorrow night for dinner?"

Jen edged backward and her butt hit the closed door. The urge to run away from his undeniable magnetism, and the problems he'd cause, sent her mind into a tail spin.

What in the hell should I do now?

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Marketing Exec's Widow by Tina Gayle is the story of a widow who lost her husband in a tragic accident, but now she is ready to move on in her life. Jennifer Larson lost her husband in the tragic accident in which three other executives lost their lives. Together, the four widows formed the Executives Wives' Club to share their grief and the way they cope with their grief. However, none of them know the dynamics of Jennifer's relationship with her husband. They had both lived separate lives, and any real affection was long gone. Now that she is finally free, she wants to concentrate on herself and find a new life and romance. She finally meets Hagan Chaney, a man who made her look forward to the future and feel wanted. But no one from Executives Wives' Club knows about her attempts to stop grieving. And she is not sure if Hagan is in the relationship for her or for her money. Can she take the leap of faith and move forward? Or can she accept that someone loves her unconditionally? I have read My Best Friend's Ex by Tina Gayle and I really loved that. So you can understand why I had such big expectations for this novel. I was looking for the same spark in the heroine, the same determination and strength of character. I was really happy when I found all that and much more with Marketing Exec's Wife. Jennifer is a strong woman who kept her chin up and had the guts to move forward after a bad relationship. Hagan Chaney was swoonworthy. He was charming and classy and so very adoring. I liked Jennifer, but Hagan got all the brownie points from me. A great 5-star novel; I can't wait to read the other three novels in the series.

Marketing exec’s widow is my first Tina Gayle’s book. She is a self-published author and the novel was first published in 2012. Now, Tina has decided to reignite its promotion with a new cover. Marketing exec’s widow is the first volume of The executives wives club series which contains two other volumes, for now : Birth, published in 2012, and CFO’s affair, published in 2013. This first volume is well written, the writing is fluent and the tone is often moving without being tearful. There is also a very funny, but not romantic, scene. LOL The executives wives club brings together four women who lost their husband in a car wreck while they were on a business trip. These deaths created a bond between these so different women and the entire series tells us how they are trying to move forward thanks to their support for each other. The last widow is sixty years old, so I’m not sure to want to read her story. However, after reading Marketing exec’s widow, I would like to read the two next installments. Indeed, even if I found the beginning a little too slow (I must say, I was working on several projects so I was not very concentrated on the book), the more I was reading the story, the more I found it interesting. Tina Gayle succeeded in getting me interested in all the characters of the book, except one: Peter, the heroine’s brother-in-law; who I hated. In fact, I don’t know how Tina Gayle succeeded this miracle, but except for Peter, there were some characters for whom I didn’t have any sympathy at the beginning, but I ended up liking them. I can cite Craig, the deceased husband, his parents who seem to want to control our heroine, Jennifer Larson, and our hero’s mother. As for the other nice characters, I didn’t have a hard time to like them until the end of the book. I loved that the hero, Hagan Cheney, was understanding, determined and aware of his feelings for his heroine. I loved the heroine. She was torn between her feelings for her deceased husband, the revelations some characters told her, her indecisiveness for her future, and, especially, her feelings for Hagan. The hot scenes were very well written, which was surprising because I didn’t expect that when I started the book. In any case, when I closed the book, I didn’t have any doubt Jennifer and Hagan’s future. There is one thing that I deplored: the synopsis which is not very explicit. I don’t want a synopsis that reveals everything, either, but I think that the synopsis of this book harms the interest the contemporary romance readers should have for this story which deserves to be read.
