About AMERICAN ASSHOLE:
He’s a self proclaimed bastard with a double helping of lying asshole.
Mia Matthews never thought much of big shot matchmaker Tenor Butler, but when she finds out he loaned her late business partner a quarter of a million dollars and no one told her, there aren’t enough four letter words to describe him. She’d like nothing more than to pretend Tenor doesn’t exist, but she owes him all that money, not to mention he’s hot as hell.
Tenor doesn’t see why it’s his fault Mia didn’t know about the loan. In fact, he thinks he’s being very magnanimous when he offers to forgive the loan if Mia closes her own matchmaking business and works for him for five years. But as he gets closer to Mia, he realizes two things: 1) he doesn’t want her as an employee and 2) she hates his guts.
When an old flame threatens them both, Mia and Tenor find themselves working together and are unable to ignore their mutual attraction. But it might be too late for these two romance experts to create their own love story.
This is a standalone romance. No cliffhanger.
Mia lost her business partner which was devastating enough but finding out that her partner had taken a humongous loan from one man she absolutely cannot stand? Her failing business doesn’t help her case so the only option for her is to take up the job this corporate jerk is offering and pay off the debt he owes her. Soon, Mia realizes that her boss’s assholeish exterior might just be a grand facade.
Tenor knows all the bad things he’s done in life but the worst of them is lusting after his own employ. Especially when it seems like she hates his guts. But he can’t stop thinking about her and neither can he let go of the opportunity to use her talents for his business. Working with Mia might just be the most difficult deal Tenor has ever made.
This story was short and sweet. It was pretty fast paced and an easy breezy read.
I loved Tenor and his dirty thoughts paired with his soft gooey heart. His adoration and respect for Mia made me swoon so hard. Mia’s independence and her no bullshit attitude made her a very strong character. her chemistry with Tenor was off the charts adorable.
While this story was good, it also seemed very familiar and predictable. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped to.
Despite that, I’m pretty excited for the next book in the series which sounds like right up my alley, ie, pain and angst.
The phone call from Mia settled it. I was a bastard and a half. No, on second thought, make that two bastards. I was two bastards with a double helping of lying asshole.
I did not have all day meetings for the next three days. There was no reason for me not to have lunch with Mia instead of dinner. Hell, there was no reason for us not to meet at nine-thirty in the morning.
No reason other than I wanted to have dinner with her and I knew as soon as she accepted an offer of employment from me, that door would be closed. Even though I was two bastards with a double helping of lying asshole, I would not in any way, shape, or form, do anything remotely inappropriate with an employee.
“Wrong,” my best friend, Piers, said when I told him what I’d done. “You’ve never done anything inappropriate with an employee before now. All bets are off with Mia. You’ll rewrite the fucking employee handbook for her.”
I almost flipped him the bird, but doing so would only prove him right. Hell, I’d probably brought Mia up every time Piers and I talked since Dee walked into my office.
“I should cancel dinner,” I said instead.
“Yes,” he said. “As your corporation’s attorney, that is my recommendation. However, as your best friend since third grade, I know that isn’t going to happen, so instead my advice is, if you’re going to fuck her, do it before she officially works for you and don’t have her start until this time next month.”
“You have got to be the worst lawyer on the planet. I don’t know how you managed to pass the bar.” Was he actually suggesting I sleep with her for a month and then break it off so she could work for me?
He shrugged. “Truth hurts. That doesn’t make me a bad lawyer. It just means I know you too well to think I’d be able to talk you out of having dinner with her tonight.”
I stood with a sigh and raked my fingers through my hair as I walked toward the large window in my home office.
I’d worked from home again today, although work was a word I’d use lightly. Other than leaving my admin speechless over the fact that I was working from home two days in a row, the only thing remotely resembling work that I’d done was to call Piers over.
I told myself no matter what happened tonight, not that I planned on anything other than dinner happening, tomorrow would be back to normal. I’d wake up and go into the office and everything would be the exact same it always had been. And maybe, just maybe, Bachelor International would have a new employee joining, but that wouldn’t change anything.
Because even if something did happen tonight, which it wouldn’t, I assured Piers one more time, it would only happen once.
