    Thanks to Netgalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review Unfortunately, it pains me to say I did not finish this book I tried keeping at it, even reading until 50% mark, but it was agonizingly slow I think that happened in the way it was written, almost very clinical like, with no passion, too much focus on little stuff, and not enough to endear me to the plot or importantly the characters To read in the above blurb that author is a cross between Jennifer Weiner and E.L James is really a very bad gross generalization that is a negative reflection on those two authors work The heroine was vapid and uncharacteristically had spur of the moment sex which seemed to be over and done with in minutes and back to business as usual with a stranger and her manager no less Just a general lacking of feelings and likeability Much time spent on...

    4 Stars Beauty Secrets is the new release from author Jill Elaine Hughes It is about a New York cosmetics executive who goes from having everything to having nothing in a day It is light, funny, and my favorite part, it references a lot of pop culture events The writing style that Jill use in Beauty Secrets reminds me of a Janet Evanovich stand alone They suck you in and hold on to you all while giving you a good laugh and a great romantic story.Amanda Brown had it all an expensive, beautifully decorated apartment, a shoe collection that would make any girl jealous and even the second largest vintage lipstick collection in North America She was living the high life and enjoying every minute of it until that fate full day that she went from being a top executive at the Revina Corporation to a being middle management under George Watson George Watson is one of four managing partners for REITCORP A company that takes over failing companies and rebuilds them to make a profit He is a no nonsense Midwestern that clawed his way to the top He didn t grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth the way Amanda did he shed blood, sweat, and tears to get to where he was I loved that about his character He was humble, down to earth, and didn t need all the fa...

    I was given this book as an ARC to readI gave this book 3.5 starsI wanted to give it , but it fell short just a little for me.It was a very sweet story, and the writer is VERY talented, but I could not stand the main character, she was a total snob, rich, stuck up bitch, and I thought as the story went along that I might get to like her better but it never got there for me Now kudos for the writer because for her to write someone that well that I loathed them, that is saying something.One other thing that I didn t care for was 5 minutes after her meeting her boss she is sleeping with him, up against a wall Amanda is so shallow, BUT I loved George, he was so down to earth, and although he was a millionaire he never acted like it, he was brought up poor and got what he had by working hard for it He calls Amanda out on how she is but still seems to fall for her none the less.Over all this is a very sweet story, and don t get me wrong, it is a great book, it just was not for me There...

    I totally did not see the story going the way it did The first line of the book is, Eyeshadow is dead I was like OMG I love my eyeshadow Then, we shortly find out that Eyeshadow is the name of Revina Cosmetics Senior Exec Amanda Browns dog Right off the bat, we start out with humor I love it Amanda is flying high, with her 7 coffees and her dry bank account What she didn t expect was to have her job on the line because her company is being taken over by one George Watson.Oh George He is from my beloved Indiana I m proudly wearing my IU shirt as I type this review George plans on completely rebuilding Reveina from the ground up Firing everyone except Amanda He wants her for her knowledgeHowever, the two of them are like oil and water They don t mix, well Only when shaken They kind of do the naughty well and on their first meeting too OMG Their chemistry is HOT ...

    This review can also be found at So, the blurb doesn t tell you anything about this story, just that it s sexy and funny I personally think the blurb was wrong.At first, the story of Amanda Brown is okay She s a high end cosmetics company executive She then meets George, whose company is buying her company Then, it gets weird.First of all, this book was all about telling rather than showing, which made it hard to get into the story For instance, Amanda was arrogant Rather than show how she was arrogant, the author simply stated that sentence And while the book is told in third person, I felt like the author couldn t make up her mind as to whether she wanted to be in Amanda s head or the narrator Sometimes, we d hear what Amanda was thinking, other times the author was giving her opinion on how Amanda was It was quite confusing.Then, she meets George, and not even two minutes later, they have sex I m all for instant connections and ch...

    I found a lot to laugh about in this novel set during the financial crisis, which I didn t expect Ms Hughes has written a book that contains everything I look for in a contemporary romance a strong, fully faceted lead couple, the kind that grows and develops throughout the story, the kind that makes you emotionally involve...

    ARC from NetGalley and Publisher in exchange for an honest review This was a strange one for me The chemistry between Amanda, a high maintenance NYC cosmetics executive and George, a no non sense Midwestern corporate raider is evident and in full display in their repeated, ill timed encounters some were cringe worthy Throw in unscrupulous bosses and exes and you ve got a reality show in the m...

    Thank you Net Galley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.This was my first book from this author and it was overall enjoyable, some times than others.The story line was unique well to me, I have not read one with that story with the whole reality show angle towards the end Another uniqueness to the book was that even though the hero was a millionaire, he rarely acte...

    Ever wonder what would happen if you came back from your lunch break and your entire office was empty Amanda never did, but she is about to find out This book had me giggling all night long because I couldn t stop reading until the story was finished.Amanda and George have an instant chemistry, problem with that Yes He is her new boss I loved the w...
