Wanted: Personal Buffer
Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.
Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a buffer from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn’t need a waiting room filled with candidates to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shooes his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancé...
This free-spirit might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pitbull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he’s agreed to give up Friday nights for reality tv, his Saturdays for flea markets (why buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for date nights (aka panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday?
Yup, she’s just screwing with him. Good thing she’s got this non-negotiable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…
The second I read this blurb I knew I wanted to try this book. It sounded fun-a billionaire who needs a buffer from his mom and hires someone for the role? Sign me up. Of course there has to be more to the story-and there was. The book had me chuckling, smirking and sighing. Overall, it was a fun read for me.
I liked Clover. She was pure fun for me to read. She was just what workaholic Sawyer needed. Clover offers up fun, friendship, and definitely attraction. From the moment I met her on the page I had a smile on my face. I admired and respected her goals and what she was doing to attain them-even if they were unconventional. Her life experiences (I don't want to spoil some of her other jobs in life because I think they're fun) all help to build who she is as a person.
Sawyer was everything I expected him to be. Focused on work and a shrewd negotiator. I didn't expect the soft side of him to run so deep-but I positively loved it. He wasn't prepared in any way for Clover, which made their relationship that much more fun from the get go.
The chemistry between them is undeniable. I liked their flirty banter, I liked their dates and their sexy times suited them perfectly. I loved how these two were total opposites but were 100% perfect for each other. I also love that the author flipped a general stereotype of having the man in a relationship be afraid of commitment/taking the next step and flipped it. You don't see that done often and it was done really well here.
The supporting characters in this book were interesting to me as well. I'd like to get a little more about Sawyer's brother, so I'm hoping that his story will get told. I would recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
