The fiery way Tate and Zoe got together was a great start to the book. Great sexual adventurous connection! This book was a quick paced, easy read that is a great escape from a busy life. It has two very likeable main characters who are struggling to make their own way, despite an unhappy childhood. And Zoe makes you feel for her more with her dedication to get mom. This is a very sweet and hot story. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.
This was my first book by Suzanne Rock and I did enjoy it. I felt that it some parts the sex seemed to go on and on. I know its hard with romance on knowing how much is too much or too little. I can say that it is steamy as all hell. This book is about two people who get together not realizing at first that they are going to have a lot more contact with each other beyond the one night. I enjoyed reading about them navigating and finding their feet once it all comes out. Tate is full of secrets and doesn't want to let her know who his family is. As you can imagine this will cause problems for them. I enjoyed the craziness that was the bridezilla. I felt so bad for all she Zoe has to deal with not only with the bridezilla but with her childhood as well. She has to deal with so much so she can take care of her mother that my heart went out to her. If you enjoy a quick read that has a pretty good story line and some steamy scenes then this is for you.
This was a good read for me. The story is fast paced with great characters and steamy chemistry. Zoe and Tate have a lot of issues with their families and even though this started as a bit of fun will they be able to say goodbye? Good story and an entertaining read. I liked it.
I'm in a place I don't like to be with a book and that's the middle of the road. The plot was ok, I really had a rough time relating to the characters and while I love a steamy, hot book this one was a tad much. It seemed like it was filler and didn't need to be. That said.... Zoe is an event planner at a resort on an island and is dealing with a celeb bride from hell. The woman is driving her nuts, so in a free moment one evening at the bar a friendly, handsome gentleman sits next to her and they start chatting and the two of them decide to blow off some steam. Wow do they ever. Little does she know, he's the man in charge of building the wedding chapel that is still a hole in the ground and threatens her mental health and her job. She needs the job to maintain her benefits to care for her mother who is in a special needs facility. So imagine her surprise the next day when she meets her one nighter at the meeting with the building contractor!! Tate comes from money, there's a big backstory there you have to read to appreciate and he's trying and doing pretty well to make it on his own. He's having trouble on this job because it's an island, the wood the bride requested is rare and has to be shipped in, etc and on and on.... so he does his best to appease Zoe, while also bedding her. I use the word bedding loosely. These two are not without their falling out either. There are things that Zoe hasn't been privy too, that she should have and well..... read the book and see for yourself. 3.5 stars **arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**
Sexy! Zoe Burkhart had taken a job as an Event Planner at a tropical resort to help pay for her mother’s medical bills while doing something she loved “ Planning Parties.” But with her newest client, famous country singer, Sadie Harris, sucking all the fun out of her life with all her Diva demands, as well as demanding a wedding chapel be built to her specifications for her ceremony, that was at the end of the month. She had commissioned Carrington Construction to build the chapel, but it was still just a hole in the ground. If she didn’t pull this Wedding off, Zoe was sure that she would lose her job and her health insurance, then her mother wouldn’t be able to stay at the health facility she desperately needed. Zoe was already struggling to pay for the place and was several payments behind. She decided she needed a distraction to help alleviate the stress of her job so she wandered over to the bar. Tate Carrington came to the bar hoping for a little sensual distraction. And as luck would have it, he found a gorgeous blonde practically throwing herself at him. He loved a challenge where women were concerned and as they talked he found out that she was angry at him and his construction company. A problem, but not one he couldn’t overcome. The last month had been a dream doing what he loved, working with his hands during the days, and his nights with lonely singles looking for no strings attached fun while on vacation. He barely had time to think about his troubles back home, and his father’s demands to stop the construction nonsense and come back home and run the family oil company. He didn’t want any part of that life, it would suffocate him, and he didn’t want any part of the family fortune, not if it came with all the conditions. So, with wanting to continue with his carefree existence, Tate purposefully kept his name a secret so she would sleep with him. Zoe carefree attitude made her more alluring to Tate and they had an amazing night. But the next morning when they officially met, Zoe’s angry side came out, knowing he had lied to her. They were going to be working closely together and their chemistry would definitely be hard to control. But Tate was not about to lose Zoe, he had never met a woman who was so enthusiastic and so responsive to him. But when the resort enforces a strict policy of no fraternization between employees or resort customers will this steamy relationship come to a grinding halt? Or will they continue their steamy nights together off the resort? Will Zoe and Tate pull off the Big Wedding so Zoey doesn’t lose her job? Will Tate and Zoey go their separate ways when his job is done? You will need to read to find out. Don’t miss this steamy, sexy and fun romance.
