Rating: ★★★ 1/2
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.

He’s a self proclaimed bastard with a double helping of lying asshole. He’s also her new boss.
From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of the acclaimed SUBMISSIVE Series comes the first book in a new series perfect for fans of Helena Hunting and Maya Banks.
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.
