A sassy, sexy, laugh-out-loud rom-com between the hottest man never to be tamed and the woman crazy enough to try
SHE WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program—helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She’d love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm.
HE WANTS TO BUY IT.
Bennett Wade is many things—arrogant, smug, brusque—but trusting isn’t one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there’s one thing Bennett can’t stand, it’s when things don’t go according to plan. They are a match tailor-made for trouble.
I really enjoyed this book! This is my first book by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and I have to say I read this in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down! I will be checking out all of her releases!
I am a fan of the cocky CEO stories. I started off thinking this would be just like the rest of them, (you know that they all have pretty much the same plot line) but Bennett Wade is different. Yes, he is cocky, rich, gorgeous and loves his mama. He does come off as an asshole for almost the entire first part of the book but once he starts opening up, you get to really see him and that made me fall hard.
Taylor Reed lost her job and started a new company all because of Bennett. She is shocked when he tracks her down looking for her help. Of course she ends says no but then ends up working for him thinking that they could maybe help each other.
Taylor knows she’s falling for him but is very blunt with him. The fighting between the two of them is sort of funny. It certainly was hate at first sight!
There is truly some great chemistry between Bennett and Taylor. The dialog between them was great. I also loved the weird friends, family and employees that were all brought into this story. They all brought their own part to the story and were truly enjoyable. There are some twists and turns that you will not see coming. Without saying too much and give the entire story away, Project Bali was an unexpected piece that I enjoyed.
I am now a fan of Ms. Pamfiloff and I can’t wait to read more of this series. This is a quick read with a HEA.
I give Tailored for Trouble by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff 4 stars!
