WHATEVER YOU LIKE
This is a spicy boy-meets-girl tale that will keep you turning the pages. It’s an unlikely premise, but it works. At no time does it feel as though Lena’s doing anything against her will, which makes the happy ending believable. Make sure you wear flame-proof gloves!
When Lena goes to work for Elite For You Companions, her goal is to make enough money to pay for her grandfather’s care following a stroke. Client Roderick Brand is the CEO of an energy company trying to complete an acquisition. Lena’s business skills and fluency in Japanese help him seal the deal. Their meeting and connection leads to some steamy sex on their first date, which breaks so many rules. Then Roderick makes an indecent proposal tied to a grant request that Lena wrote, and Lena finds herself at his disposal for three hot and sexy weeks. (KIMANI/ARABESQUE, Nov., 262 pp., $6.99)
