Most Eligible Bastard, an all-new standalone romance from
New York Times bestselling author Annika Martin is LIVE!
I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.
Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.
Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…
He’s arrogant and infuriating.
He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.
He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.
Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I'm so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.
No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.
His wicked...devastating...impossible-to-resist smile.
Oh well, who needs panties anyway?
This book had me laughing from the start and pretty much throughout the rest of it, except for when it came to Vicky reflecting on the reasons why she had to leave her hometown. That story isn't funny, but it made me appreciate her resiliency and tenacity to keep moving forward with her head held as high as she felt comfortable being, and even more so for putting her younger sister first.
Now as for Henry, I could understand his reaction to Vicky, but man, I was tired of his attitude towards her throughout the first half of the book. Again, I understand why he had those assumptions, and I realize you don't make it to be a billionaire by being soft, but I was just so ready for him to finally learn the truth about her I couldn't stand it. That's not to say I didn't laugh my arsenuggets off at the banter between them, because some of their exchanges were comedy gold. And the things Vicky does to annoy the everlovin' snot out of Henry are hilarious (the throne is my favorite).
