He's a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn't matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.

I'm Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that's what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.

Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor's son, Henry Locke, aka New York's most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.

Rumor has it Henry's a business genius who's as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he's gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…

He's arrogant and infuriating.

He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn't con his mother.

He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.

Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I'm so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.

No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.

His wicked...devastating...impossible-to-resist smile.

Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

***A sexy enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy standalone!***

I thought the storyline was different from the usual fare and I'm not too embarrassed to admit they made me cry.

It started really well but then it just dropped off the characters were very good and the story line was very interesting. Yes, it’s a bit ridiculous but not in an annoying way. It started off strong with a good character development and a sassy heroine, but then I felt like they skipped fifty pages and the main characters were all of the sudden dating. I wanted more confrontation and more excitement but it just went down hill from there.

Love this story. Between Vicky, Bernadette and Smuckers, what could go wrong? Ahhh, only a couple obsticals. But all is well with drab pencil skirts, wet fingers in the right places and, oh, Henry.

Funny premise, with a dog inheriting controlling interest in a company, and the chemistry between Henry and Vicky is off the charts. The intimate scenes with them melted my Nook. So good! The back and forth - can he trust her, can she trust him - well written and so believable that you can feel their angst. Spoiler alert, kind of (though we know it's a HEA): I wish their engagement scene was included, with Smuckers telling Henry what to say - that would've been perfect. Loved it!!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This was the first time I read this author and the story was beyond wonderful, on a scale of 1-10 its a 20. I LOVED it so much!! Now, you might wonder why I have never read this author before, well its because I do not like Mafia stories and she has written a lot of them. This is NOT a drama or a Mafia story. It is a character driven romance and it is so great because the character and story is really wonderful. The heroine is named Vicky and Vicky is a 20 something woman who is taking care of her sister Mandy, who is 16. Vicky was once Vonda and something terrible happened to her. After she grabbed her 9 year old sister and then found a place to live in NYC. The story starts when Estrella, a woman who loves her dog, Smucker's and who stalked until they became friendly with Vicky is dying. Vicky promised to care for Smuckers when Estrella died. Henry is Estrella's estranged son, and well once Estrella dies, she makes sure Smuckers and Henry get involved, which means he gets to know Vicky. I loved these two together. They really are very similiar and I loved every minute of them learning about the other and falling in LOVE. But both Vicky and Henry have secrets and well when all their secrets are exposed well it sorta broke my heart. But I kept reading and I fell even more in love with this book. This was a very original book, with lots of humor related to Smuckers, wonderful characters and a totally fun plotline. I beyond loved this book and am very impressed with this author.

Vicky Nelson never claimed she was really a dog whisperer, but when a wealthy woman won't take no for an answer, she humors her... harmlessly. But being a companion for a dying woman lands Vicky in a position she never wanted to be in... and the focus of the rich and ruthless. Henry Locke will not lot a scammer take him and his family company down. He will stop at nothing to bring Vicky down. But, what Henry didn't count on was Vicky being the kind of woman who isn't so easily persuaded... or seduced... Vicky has been through a bad situation when she was younger which fuels her distrust for wealthy and influential people. After years of avoiding any situation where she would be in the media or around people she distrusts, she is suddenly thrust into a role she has no desire to be a part of. That is, until they start to push her around... I loved this book! Vicky is a smart, strong, hilarious and extremely capable woman. She was quick to catch on to any situation she was in and never fell for any of the backhanded things the Locke's threw at her. Henry starts out as seeming like an egotistical jerk... well, he is one... but you learn to love him for it! There was so much more to his character that meets the eye, and when he and Vicky start to hit it off, their relationship makes perfect sense. The storyline was fresh and interesting and the writing was simply fantastic. The characters were done so well, they multifaceted and vastly entertaining. Vicky and Henry have plenty of steamy sex scenes and a witty repertoire I couldn't get enough of. I seriously enjoyed everything about this book! I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.

This was a cleverly and brilliantly crafted romantic comedy. It was, at times, hilariously funny and off-the-charts hot! I loved the premise, each character, and delivery of emotions and the story. From the first page, the author had me hooked! I literally could not put it down until I got to the last page. I was seriously sleep deprived from staying up all night reading. And I was so very sad to see Henry and Vicky's story come to an end. I was drawn to the history of the characters and the hilarity of their situation. Vicky provided the perfect adversary to Henry’s need for control and animosity toward his mother. The stubbornness and tension between these two was epic, as was their natural affinity for one another once they began spending time together and the ease with which they fell into friendship and then love. The author did a fabulous job of weaving Henry and Vicky's stories together, finding commonalities within their artistic abilities and interests, and building their trust. And while she included the necessary elements for a proper split and reconciliation, I was so grateful that she avoided too much angst within their journey. I need to mention that it is critical to be able to separate the characters attitudes and responses to each other since, as a reader, we have the full picture. There were moments where I wanted to shake Henry out of his anger and suspicion; however, he had reason to doubt Vicky's innocence. Thankfully, the author gave us the dual POV, which allowed us to fully understand both characters experiences and behavior. It's rare that I include a quote from any books I review, but I couldn't leave it without this favorite of mine. “People have reactions to each other, just like chemicals do. Some blend. Some layer. But some transform each other—they fizz and bubble right out of their containers. That’s Henry and me—something about him gets me reacting—pulse too fast, skin too tight. Wanting to spar. Something. Anything.” I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.

I knew I was going to fall in love with this book when it opened with the hospital scene. Once I started I couldn't put it down. I felt so much for what happened to Vicky and how she picked herself right up to take care of her sister. I loved the chemistry between Henry and Vicky. The scene where they are on the top floor of the unfinished building was HOT. My first read from this author and I loved very minute of it. Will definitely be reading more from her.

I REALLY enjoyed reading this book. It's an enemies to lovers story you are going to love!! The story is interesting from beginning to end and for those people that feel it's important for an HEA, this is the book for you!! The slow burn drove me crazy but I enjoyed every moment of it!! I laughed out loud and there was tension that made me catch my breath and my heart beat faster, not to mention the very hot, pulse pounding sex!! I definitely recommend this book and I have to say, even with the HEA I would love for the story to keep going!! It's been mentioned and bears repeating, I want some Smuck U merchandise pronto!! (You will understand when you read the book.) I really hope this convinced you to one-click this book because it's worth every penny!! Enjoy!!

This story grabbed me when I first read the blurb, but after reading it I have to say, it’s a bit of a misnomer calling it a romantic comedy. Sure there were some funny moments, but most of this story was way too serious to call it a comedy. Vicky is a girl with a secret, a huge, horrible secret that she never wants to see the light of day ever again. Her past is mired in controversy and lies, things that forced her to run away from her hometown when she was just a teenager. She took her little sister with her and never look back. She changed her name, her looks… everything to escape her former life. Years later, she’s settled into her life in New York, she has her own Etsy store, friends and her little sister is safe from all the horrors they left behind. She meets Henry in a exclusive hospice where she’s visiting a dying friend, a bitter older woman she met a while back when she helped out a friend. She’d reluctantly agreed to pretend to be a dog whisperer at the local street fair where she first met Bernadette, and her toy Maltese dog, Smuckers. The two had become unlikely friends due to Bernadette’s insistence. Henry is surprised to find Vicky in his mom’s room but thinks she’s trying to scam her. Nothing Vicky says will change his mind. He’s been estranged from his mother for years and now she’s dying, he doesn’t have time for ‘grifters’. Both think they’ll never set eyes on each other again, but Henry’s mom made sure that wasn’t the case. Events cause them both to have to interact with the other and neither is prepared for their reactions. This is a slow burning story with lots of twists but once the heat is switched on it’s intense. Henry is seriously hot, but has a sweet, caring side that he hides initially but as the two get closer he lets more of it show. Vicky is tormented by her past, but slowly Henry breaks through her defences and she gives him glimpses into the turmoil that afflicts her mind. I really loved this story and the way it unfolded. It was sweet at times, and other heartrendingly painful. I was rooting for Vicky from the start. Henry was a bit of a d*** initially but soon grew on me. The secondary characters were well fleshed out and interesting to read as well. Overall, a great story with a lovely ending.
