Title: Battle of the Sexes
An Imperfect Love Kindle World Novella
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 6, 2017


Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

For real this time.

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.

I'm a fan of Adriana Locke so when I realized she'd written a book that was going to be part of the Imperfect Love Kindle World I jumped at the chance to sign up for it. Overall, this was a quick read that was a bit lighter than I anticipated, but I did enjoy it.

I liked Carver and Amity. I liked their shared history and their backstory was believable. There's little details tossed in about them growing up together that had me sighing in spots and then groaning in frustration in other spots. But I liked the idea that they were friends, then not, then became so much more.

There's absolutely tension between these two and I understood there would be right from the start. That being said, there wasn't as much tension as I expected there to be from the title and blurb. I was expecting a little more bite between them-but what they lacked in tension they made up for in chemistry. Their sexy times were definitely sexy; which is something I've come to expect and enjoy from this author.

This was a quick read for me and I did enjoy it. I would recommend this title.

Carver and Amity had great potential and decent chemistry. Unfortunately, it never totally worked for me. It wasn't bad, not at all, it just was never quite what I was hoping for.

The idea that they were competing for the position of CEO, well, that fell a little flat for me, as I never really believed there was realistically much competition and I was not at all surprised by the resolution of this.

And, that really summed up the book for me, there was not much that was a surprise. Their relationship was, well, not a surprise and it progressed pretty much as I was expecting. 

This was a shorter novella and in the Kindle Worlds, so I know it was not going to be as developed as a longer story, but I felt that the parts that were covered were not quite covered as well as I would have liked.

Again, not bad, it just felt like the story glossed over the surface without really touching down in the relationship, and the drama, that should have existed with Carver and Amity.

I do recommend this book, but as a light read and not really the "battle" that you are expecting.
