Overview

Famous and highly-successful author, Maxwell Tucker is screwed. For the first time in his life, he’s blocked and his next book is overdue. He’s always written in long hand and he’s never seen the need to learn to type. Now there’s nothing to type because Max is stuck. Then Nicole Miller sneaks into his penthouse, trying to get Max off her father’s back and Max has a devious idea….
Nicole’s lovable, doofus father always means well, but he doesn’t really think things through. With the goal of improving the once-prosperous family’s finances, Alton has written a book on how to succeed in business. But in writing his self-published manual, Alton has plagiarized large sections from major author, Max Tucker’s highly-acclaimed fictional novel about business practices in the United States. And now Tucker is suing.
Not knowing Tucker’s dilemma, Nicole--who has always looked after her dad--takes on the job of averting this disaster, but she’s shocked when Max insists she become his typist for the summer…or he’ll ruin her dad.
Can a snarling, unhappy genius finish his book and still win the girl?

    Maxwell Tucker has to be just about the nastiest, most unlikeabl

    Maxwell Tucker has to be just about the nastiest, most unlikeable hero I’ve ever read in a romance novel.

    There. I said it.

    He has everything else going for him, wealth, talent, huge intellect but he’s a narcissist. Now that’s not to say I didn’t like him because I really did. MR PERSONALITY had me riveted to my Kindle the entire time. And there’s the fact that we all know someone like him, a nasty, bad tempered person who can’t find happiness in anything so they make sure none of the rest of us do either. But then, Maxwell Tucker never met Nicole Miller.
    Much of the story takes place in Max’s point of view, refreshing to read since there are so few romance stories out there written in the male’s point of view. Carol Rose captures his angst, anger, frustration, and the deep set feelings he develops for the woman who starts out as his typist, becomes his muse, and his lover.

    There are no flowers, chocolates or sweeping off your feet here. Max is a raw character with many flaws and a huge baggage train. I found the scenes where he has to examine his feelings for Nicole the most interesting. Carol Rose peels back the layers to reveal the real Max, a vulnerable man who’s been kicked around for the sake of his talent and intelligence and the wealth it could bring to those closest to him. It’s a fascinating character study.

    The plot is actually pretty simple which only adds to the allure in my opinion. It’s a fish out of water story with both protagonists as the fish. Supporting characters are well-written and they fit in into the story very well.

    The only thing I wanted was more! I didn’t want to stop reading about this unusual couple and would love to see how they ended up.

    Add this fun and poignant story to your must read list!

    genius writer who is stuck without a typist and a young woman wh

    genius writer who is stuck without a typist and a young woman who connives to see him so she can convince Max to drop the lawsuit against her father for accidentally plagiarizing his work.

    Max comes off as brass and beyond conceited! His monologues are exactly what I imagine a genius writer would think and feel. He immerses himself so completely into the stories. The characters talk to him. He NEEDS to let them out. He has such a dark and hard childhood. He is the unfortunate product of that childhood.

    Nicole somehow see beyond his many layers and slowly falls in love. But she is not a rose-tinted glasses girl. She sees his true nature and struggles with the decision to love him in spite of his failings.

    The book cover is so deceiving because you assume it will be a light romp of a romance. This story is stark and intelligent. Carol Rose takes standard trope of girl working for genius and ups the ante.

    An emotional journey......

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!!

    This is the first book I have read by Carol Rose and I very much enjoyed it.

    This story is refreshing. Even though it started a bit slow for me the author took us on an emotional journey with Nicole & Max.
    Take Nicole, a strong-minded, independent, take control kind of girl. Then we have Max, Mr. complex, over-acheiver, crude & 100% male. Both characters are well developed, possessing depth & challenge.

    Every turn of the page brought emotional highs & lows. You can't help but think how Max would be if only he had a decent parental upbringing, but Nicole just has that larger than life persona and is willing to do just about anything to support Max & bring him into the real world.

    I definately recommend this book and look forward reading more to come from the author.

    I was given this book in exchange or an honest review.

    Wow!! This is a truly beautiful book! Mr. Personality is the perfect name for this book. I just couldn't seem to put it down. I had to know how things would unfold.

    Max is as sexy as he is harsh. His personality leaves mush to be desired. He is rude and unfeeling, always absorbed in his work. Nothing and no one matter but his work. He is a recluse and never leaves the confines of his home and Nicole was just what he needed.

    Max needed someone to put him in his place not kiss his ass. And Nicole pulled off what others could not. We saw a lot of Max's personality before Nicole got her hands on him. He slowly but surly started to see the light. He back tracked a few times and it was like started with a blank page.

    The characters are solid and I could see them perfectly in my mind. Carol Rose has a way with words and I have always liked her writing. She never disappoints and this book is the perfect example.

    Both characters are stubborn in their own right. They both feel they are right and the other is wrong but along the way things change. I loved seeing Max grow and his character evolve. They both had their own drama and reasons for working together but they somehow managed to start a friendship. I loved their banter and how Nicole wouldn't back down from Max's wicked works.

    Nicole is a strong and loving character. She always wanted to help Max and not for her own personal gain. She saw a sexy man who was shutting out the world and she managed to get through to him. But Max also managed to teach Nicole a thing or two.

    All in all a great book. With friendship, understanding, steamy sex, and most importantly love. I'm happy everyone got their HEA. It was worth all of the frustration it brought the characters. Max put himself our there and beyond his comfort zone to win over the woman he loved.

    This a beautiful love story and worth the read.

    Carol Rose has written and developed Max & Nicole's characte

    Carol Rose has written and developed Max & Nicole's characters so well that even when we don't like some of Max's interactions with Nicole we still care about them and want to see if they can make a relationship work. As we are taken through the story we come to understand some of what influenced Max to become the person he is at the time he meets Nicole. We also see how Nicole's relationship with her father has a lot to do with her need to help people. Yes there are some steamy sex scenes and they are a very necessary part of the story development. Once I started reading this novel I didn't want to put it down.
