Mister McHottie by Pippa Grant
Series: Girl Band #1
on October 30, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance
I’ve just bought the woman of my nightmares.
Technically, I bought the company she works for. Point is, she cost me my two best friends ten years ago. It’s payback time, and I’m going to make her life hell.
When I’m not banging her silly and myself stupid.
I need to get my head back in business, because getting off is great, but "He was a man who had sex, and lots of it, and in the worst locations, with the woman of his nightmares" isn’t the inscription I want on my tombstone.
Even if it’s true.
There are three things I hate:
Bratwurst in any form, my neighbors boinking loudly like farm animals at 3 AM, and Chase Jett.
Mostly I hate Chase Jett. It’s been ten years since he took my virginity—I’d make a bratwurst joke, but the unfortunate truth is that it would have to be a bratbest joke, and yes, it kills me to admit it—and now he’s not only a billionaire, he’s also my new boss.
Turns out our hate is mutual. And this kind of hate is horrifically twisted, filthy, and banging hot.
I just might have to hate him forever.
I had been wanting to read this for quite awhile. I read and loved the second in Girl Band series, Stud in the Stacks. So I was happy to find it was on someone else’s tbr list and we could do it as a buddy read.
I enjoyed the world building and learning more about the organic grocery chain Crunchy’s. The new owner, Chase and a woman in the marketing department, Ambrosia, grew up together in Minnesota. Chase was best friends with Ambrosia’s two brothers. Their parting was traumatic.
Now Ambrosia finds herself working for Chase, as the new owner of the store. They have an uneasy situation of overflowing lust and tumultuous feelings. The story was fun, quick read, but too much a fuck fest. I would have liked the characters to talk to each other a bit more and have developed them a bit more.
These are only Kindle freebies I get, or ones through author newsletters which anyone can sign up and get for free. I don’t include things like Kindle Unlimited or Prime Free Reading (I do have it). Both Tantor and Audible have occasional free audios (to anyone) and I do include those. Since I one-click on 1-2 freebies a day or probably at least 5 a week, I came up with this feature to make sure I start reading them.
So I have thought about doing a Thrifty Thursday Challenge someday. For now, what I think would be fun is if you have read and reviewed a freebie, link up to your review (Goodreads, blog, facebook or wherever) below.
