Uncovering this sexy geek's charm is easy. Keeping her hands off of him is impossible.
While he may look like the love child of a movie starlet and an NFL linebacker, Ben Langley has the people skills of a half-drowned porcupine. Why socialize when there are chemistry labs and bad sci-fi flicks? If he has any hope of taking the helm as CEO of the family business, Ben needs an image makeover. Pronto.
Enter Holly Colvin, owner of First Impressions public relations and branding firm, and the woman who just saved Ben from the clutches of an over-attentive sales clerk. Holly's rebranded hundreds of companies in her career, but she's never rebranded a person. The guy clearly needs help, though, and she's just the woman for the job.
With the clock ticking for them both, Holly and Ben face off over wardrobe malfunctions and business jargon that sounds a lot sexier than it should. But can Holly make Ben into the man he thinks he should be without losing the man she's starting to love?My Review:
Wow...talk about a sexy, hot geek story. This one was a fabulous one.
Ben is taking over as CEO of his family company. That means it's no longer acceptable for him to hide out in his lab all the time. He may be socially awkward to the extreme, but his father expects him to expand his ability to schmooze and seduce clients...even though those kind of social skills have never been part of Ben's tool-set.
That's where Holly comes in. She has an instant grace and ability to gently guide Ben in where he needs to go in any circumstance. From the moment she saved him in the furniture store, she's wielded her power for good. As a result, Ben sees her as his salvation for his identity makeover. He has to learn how to become a charming, assertive CEO. She can teach him.
This book was so fun and sweet and sexy. I loved it. And I'll admit, I need to add Tawna Fenske onto my auto-buy list. She is one of the premier authors of our time with her storytelling and dialoguing abilities Her stories keep me smiling and giggling and I ALWAYS feel better and happier for having read one of her books. This one was no exception. In fact, I completely fell in love with this awkward geek...and I liked it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
