Review for The Bad Boy CEO by Sugar Jamison - 5 bees knees!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
Colt King has spent his whole life trying to prove he's not the trash his hometown of Destiny, Nevada, thought he and his brothers were. As soon as he was old enough he left town, vowing to make a name for himself and never looking back at the place that looked down on him. But that plan goes out the window when his ailing elderly aunt asks him to come home.
He begrudgingly returns to help the woman who raised him. But he's no longer the poor kid from the bad part of town. He's the ruler of a custom car empire and a financial genius. He arrives expecting a boring stay, but when he walks into his childhood home to find a woman in nothing but her underwear pointing a shotgun at his face, he knows his trip home will be a memorable one. With his aunt sick and forcing him to help her restore her fledgling hair salon, he has more than enough on his plate. Colt has no idea that her sexy tenant, Zanna, is going to be the cause of his many sleepless nights.
Zanna Jacobs came to the ghost town of Destiny to stay out of trouble and stay the hell away from men. She's got a serious thing for bad boys that's she trying to kick, and when she lays her eyes on the brutishly handsome Colt, she knows he's got bad news written all over him. He's not the typical thug she goes for: He's too clean cut, too good looking, and too cold--and when he comes to take over her salon, she's not going to take it. Zanna decides to show him exactly who the boss is. Colt is used to people following his orders, and when Zanna challenges his every word he finds her infuriating and incredibly sexy. He can't keep his hands off her...and knows that once he returns to Las Vegas, all bets are off...
MY REVIEW -
I thought this was really great!! I really liked Zanna; she was smart and tough, and I like how she stands up for herself and doesn't hold her opinions in. I like honesty in characters, and I like when characters don't play tons of games with each other. Colt was also great, I like that he's a bit stiff and controlled; it makes it more satisfying when they can't maintain their composure, and go off the rails a bit. It's good that he wasn't a man slut because I am getting really tired of that type of male character. I loved his family dynamics, and I am really looking forward to his brother's books; I'm not huge on the finding out you have a mystery child storyline, but I'll get past it because I like the characters. I like the setting, I enjoy small town stories because I like quirky side characters. Zanna and Colt are very steamy together, and the scenes were scorching! Zanna and Colt's meeting scene was great, and I liked how they evolved. There wasn't a lot of meat to this story, but this is a fairly short book, so it didn't really bother me, and I enjoy books that are mainly about the development of a connection between 2 people, and there was enough content to be good, and the characters are terrific, so that added a lot to the story. Great story with potential to be a great series! I loved Sugar Jamison's Perfect Fit series, and this series seems to be another series by her that I will love as well.
