Takeover Duet Book #1
Source: Advanced reader copy gifted via netgalley
A one night stand to beat all one night stands. But can it lead to lasting love?
This was an absolute gem. Lauren Bradley, CEO of Interstellar Corporation is on the verge of creating an engine to redefine aerospace technology. After news of a potential hostile takeover from their business rival Cozza International, she has a lot on her plate to manage.

A stiff drink at her friendly neighborhood bar is exactly what Lauren needs to unwind after a long day. Nothing like a martini and a sexy accent to turn her day into a hot and sweaty one night stand. But this one night stand has an unexpected twist.
Fast forward to the morning after and  Lauren needs to prepare for an important meeting with Cozza.  Guess who walks into her office?  Sexy drop dead beautiful  stranger Lou is actual corporate raider CEO, Antonio Forte. Now he wants Lauren and her company! Who is this man? Did he try to set her up? Did he know who she was?

While their business rivalry may make their relationship harder than Antonio wants, he is determine to prove they can have it all.  He wisks relunctant Lauren away for a weekend getaway. They grow closer and he realizes the two of them can  be so much more than just sex and business rivals.  As their time together draws to a close Lauren is left with a decision to make. Is what they shared together worth the possibility of giving up her dream and remaining in control as CEO?

The world of finance, mergers & Acquisitions holds a personal interest for me. I was seduced by the title and the plot. I immediately knew this will be my first book to pop the Chelle Bliss cherry. And because of the subject matter based in the financial world – it did not disappoint at all.  Whoa, talk about the dirty talk and scorching sex! I did have trouble putting this one down.  The attraction and chemistry between Lauren and Antonio is off the charts. It doesn’t take long for her to realize she can’t deny she wants him just as much as she wants to remain in control of her company.  When Lauren and Antonio ‘s weekend leads to unexpected twists  both must decide what matters most. Especially when a threat from Lauren’s  past promises to ruin their relationship before it’s barely begun. 

Chelle’s  writing style makes it a real page-turner. You don’t need to be a student of finance to understand and enjoy. She made corporate takeovers sexy.  Thoroughly engaging, it packed heat and heart.  You have two perfect characters you will embrace and crave to get their happy ever after.   I can not wait to read more from this author and its conclusion. Yeah, it’s a cliffy. However it leaves you wanting for more.
