The business of love is dangerous. For Jennifer Kent, a recent MBA graduate who has been searching for work in Manhattan for four long months, time and money are running out. If she doesn't find work soon, she'll need to return to her native Maine, where the job situation is even more bleak. And where her abusive parents lie in wait.
When an unorthodox arrangement is proposed, Jennifer decides to take it. She agrees to be the "girlfriend" of Alexander Wenn, the reluctant, billionaire CEO of Wenn Enterprises, who is so devastatingly good looking, he needs a beautiful woman like Jennifer on his arm to "keep the wolves at bay."
In this case, the wolves are other women, all of whom vie for his attention so aggressively, they keep him from focusing on business at the exclusive events he must attend. It's there that deals are cut. What they want is his money and his power. Damaged by a past event, the only thing Alex wants to do is focus on work. And to forget the past.
But can Jennifer deny their white-hot chemistry? As she's swept into this glittering otherworld of society and big business, she finds herself struggling to keep from falling for Alex, an almost impossible feat she nevertheless must meet.
Armed with her MBA, Jennifer Kent knows about business. But what she doesn't know is what could destroy her - the business of protecting her own heart. And maybe her own life.

I absolutely loved this book. It wasn't about getting right to the sex scenes, as it is with SO MANY OTHER BOOKS. In fact, the book offers only a powerful build-up to a relationship that will likely emerge even deeper, I'm hoping, in the next book. The adults are adults. There is nothing amateurish or childish here--there are NO hot messes--which I really enjoyed. In THIS genre, that was refreshing.
The dialogue is witty and real. You'll never forget Ms. Blackwell (LOVE her). Jennifer and Alex are trying to work things out between them, and you can't help but pull for them.
Reba Buhr is amazing. She gets all the nuances. She must be an actress, though I'm not sure, but she should be one! She certainly acts through this book. Her style and her characterizations are flawless.
Sizzling, romantic chick-lit for the smart set. Oh, and for those who love witty dialogue!
This book is a debut? Unbelievable. Very, very well written. Even better is that it's a full book--you don't get a just a few short chapters--you get a full novel. Totally engrossing. Can't wait for the next. Christina Ross has a new fan in me.
