The first in a brand new contemporary romance series starring the men and women who are determined to keep the billion-dollar denim dynasty, Riley O’Brien & Co, on top, but aren’t about to let success stand in the way of love…
Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O’Brien & Co., it’s a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn’t quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O’Brien. She’s doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she’s working on behind his back…
Quinn’s not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn’t wise, but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he’s taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn’t know he’s risking a lot more than his heart.
A man who only wears jeans…and wears them well?!?!?! Yee Haw!
Amelia reminded me of the interview I saw of the Stella and Dot CEO…she is the kind of woman that other women would love to be friends with and would love for her to dress them up! Quinn is bit rigid and yet when he sees Amelia, he is ready to throw out his “no office romance” policy in exchange for some hot lovin’. But like most romance stories, there needs to be that bit of angst. For these two it is Quinn’s sister’s plan to revamp the whole women’s line at Riley O’Brien & Co. From the first few chapters, you just knew that that little gem was gonna come back and bite someone in their delicious denim behind!
I love the struggle though…Quinn struggling to be his own man and his own type of CEO, while Amelia was struggling to find who she was as an artist, a woman and a lover. I really enjoyed this story and the side characters…totally looking forward to a certain football player and Quinn’s sister hooking up in book #2 (hoping). Great start to a series…check this one out this summer. Enjoy!
