Goodreads’ Book Description:
Five minutes until the interview begins.
Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm.
Four minutes until the interview.
She knows she’s only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister’s friend.
For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure, or displeasure, of being around.
But the job opportunity is too good to pass up. So, Cammie will have to ignore the fact that Grayson is handsome enough to have his own national holiday.
After all, she shouldn’t feel that way about her new boss. And, he will be her new boss.
“I’m not intimidated by you,” I said with a confident smile.
“Perhaps we should fix that, Ms. Heart. Close the door.”
This book right here took over my entire Saturday. Did I do anything productive before and after reading it? NOPE. Because my book hangover was in full-effect.
I can always count on R.S. Grey to deliver a beautifully-executed NA read with the perfect amount of romance, hilarity, life lessons and a gorgeous hero. In this case, Grayson Cole takes that spot and 10000% owns it.
Cammie Heart is everything I want to be. She’s exceedingly brave and incredibly tenacious. She knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to go after it, even if rejection is a possibility. She’s great at what she does and isn’t one to back out of something before giving her all. Her goals in life are simple: land a job at Grayson’s firm and save enough money to move to Paris. Grayson Cole just happens to be a bit of a minor setback.
Cammie has been infatuated with Grayson ever since she first met him 5 years before interviewing to work at his firm. He was every bit of perfect and, because he was her older sister’s friend, 100% unattainable. But now she’s back in his life, ready to go after her teenage dream.
Grayson Cole. YUM. All kinds of YUM. He’s ridiculously successful, good-looking and might have a bit of a crush on Cammie Heart. I’ll just let you see for yourself how that plays out though 😉
I love this story to pieces. It had everything I wanted and then some. Bravo, R.S. Grey. You are talented beyond belief and I’m such a fan of your words. Now how can you find me a Grayson Cole in real life???
“I loved him fiercely, wholeheartedly, and without abandon. Nothing makes you love someone like the shadow of an impending goodbye.”
(A bit of a foreshadowing quote, hmm?)
PSST…Before you read THE DESIGN, don’t forget to read THE DUET!
When 27-year-old pop sensation Brooklyn Heart steps in front of a microphone, her love songs enchant audiences worldwide. But when it comes to her own love life, the only spell she’s under is a dry one.
So when her label slots her for a Grammy performance with the sexy and soulful Jason Monroe, she can’t help but entertain certain fantasies… those in which her G-string gets more play than her guitars’.
Only one problem. Jason is a lyrical lone wolf that isn’t happy about sharing the stage—nor his ranch — with the sassy singer. But while it may seem like a song entitled ‘Jason Monroe Is an Arrogant Ho’ basically writes itself, their label and their millions of fans are expecting recording gold…
They’re expecting The Duet.
