Terri Cooke wishes she could give Mick Wentworth a piece of her mind. The infuriating stud muffin walks into her coffee shop every morning expecting his regular order at 8:57 on the dot, without ever acknowledging Terri’s presence—except for staring at her cleavage. And yet she can’t deny that Mick Wentworth has an animal magnetism that’s stronger and richer than any espresso . . . which explains why Terri says yes when he suddenly, inexplicably asks her out.
After the morning coffee run, Mick’s day is all downhill from there. His family’s marketing firm is dysfunctional in more ways than one, so to save the business, Mick desperately needs to impress their newest client. When he learns that Terri’s a fan of their trendy product, he tries to get inside her head. It doesn’t hurt that she’s the barista he’s been lusting after for the past five months. But as things heat up with Terri, Mick finds that a little steam is just the jolt he needs to turn his whole life around.
|I found this to be a better book than I was expecting. Terri Cooke’s day is only good for maybe two minutes. That is the time it takes Mick Wentworth to come into the coffee house she works at get a coffee and leave. Here character though is spunky and full of life when she could be beaten down because of what is going on with her and her brother, mainly her brother. Mick though is a prick and as you get into the story you start to figure out why. Terri is the only one that does not take his sh*t and that makes him attracted to her, and that she is beautiful. When she finally does agree to go out with him on a date she tells him she is hoping that he can perform better than her vibrator home. This is her attitude and as a reader, it is refreshing to read a character like that. Mick and his ad agency have a lot of drama going on and that takes up part of the book, along with her care of her brother. But when the two of them are together it is hot and full of passion. The story is good and so are the characters. A very good book. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com
