Acquisitions is an interesting and compelling contemporary romance. It is complete with desire, well-defined characters and an engrossing storyline. The book flows nicely from beginning to end and I was always cheering for Kelleigh and Troy to be together. I liked the winery setting, the ruthlessness of Kelleigh's boss, and how truth conquers all. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
