“A good beginning…”
First, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Second, this book isn’t bad at all and I give it 3 AND A HALF stars, but can’t give half stars on Amazon, and we all know we’re taught to round up if it’s 5+, lol, so…
Anyway, It’s the first of five serials, and it’s setting up for the story in general, but I felt it dragged a little in some places. You meet Maddie and her friend Katy, who sets her up with her first client for her concierge services, Greyson Sinclair. He just happens to be young, gorgeous, rich, arrogant, etc. You name it, that’s Greyson for you.
Greyson is pretty much what I would expect someone ‘like him’ to be in a story. The world at his feet, charming and blunt, but also an underlying current of dissatisfaction and mistrust of people running through him. He’s also a bit of a jerk, and really needs to get himself a friend with benefits or something, instead of sleeping with his assistants. That’s just dumb, right there, and not because he doesn’t make his position clear to them. He should just keep it away from work if he’s gonna go through women like they are nothing.
I didn’t really like Maddie. She was naive, and inept at what she wants to do for a business, and at times, immature. She assumed to know what Greyson wanted and thought, etc, and it became annoying. She goes on and on about not wanting to get in bed with him so they keep things professional, yet in the blink of an eye, that’s what they’re doing. She certainly didn’t put up a fight and so it made her protestations all along weak, unnecessary, and lame. Then, near to the end he makes a comment and even though it’s CLEAR what he means, she takes it as an insult and I honestly just rolled my eyes at it.
Lastly, Sloan’s writing is good and I didn’t notice any errors at all. She definitely knows what she is doing, and I look forward to reading more of this story.
