Blurb: A sassy, sexy, laugh-out-loud rom-com between the hottest man never to be tamed and the woman crazy enough to try


Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program—helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She’d love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm.


Bennett Wade is many things—arrogant, smug, brusque—but trusting isn’t one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there’s one thing Bennett can’t stand, it’s when things don’t go according to plan.

They are a match tailor-made for trouble.

Review: Mimi Jean has written a wonderful tale filled with high stakes, simmering chemistry, and laugh out loud verbal banter. Both characters are operating with limited information that’s also incorrect… So imagine their surprise when they end up falling in love!

Taylor Reed had what she thought was a great job until she didn’t–she was fired for protecting her boss. She tried starting up her own Human Resources company, HumanitE–sinking all her savings into it–but wasn’t having much success until Bennett Wade, the guy who’d gotten her fired, was suddenly chasing after her, insisting that she do her training on him. What? Even though it was ludicrous, the $50K paycheck was really enticing. It would pay off all her loans and help her get back on her feet.

What Taylor doesn’t know is Bennett’s agenda, but she’s going to find out. And when she does, all heck is going to break loose. She’s going to set him up for a big fall… and he won’t see it coming. But what happens when Taylor realizes that under Bennett’s gruff exterior beats a heart of gold? What happens when her enemy becomes her dream come true?

Bennett wants to use his wealth to give back to the community his family had harmed, but he’s afraid to admit what he did to Taylor for fear of losing her. Surely no one could love someone like him. Will his silence lose him the woman he’s falling in love with?

Great rollercoaster romance with twists and turns that will have you reaching for your smelling salts while you ache to smack some sense into both of them! Thanks!
