Review: Tempting the CEO by Angela Claire

Title: Tempting the CEO

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

If lawyer Angie O'Hare needed another reason to hate New York City, this would be it. Locked out of her room and stranded in the hallway. Wearing only a towel. Lovely. But then, rescue arrives—in the form of the wickedly hot, funny guy in the penthouse next door. Angie is so relieved that she ignores her usual buzz-kill tendencies, and agrees to have a drink with Mr. Sexy Salvation...

But things don't stop at just a drink. Or even a hot make-out session.

Cue one night of hot, ultra-x-rated sexy time. No names. No personal information. And the next morning, Angie sneaks out, returning to her prim-and-proper life, every hair in place. But New York City isn't done with Angie yet. Because her meeting that morning is with CEO Jed Worth... whose bed she did everything but sleep in last night! And Jed isn't the sort of man to take “conflict of interest” as an answer...

I hate to say that because this was such a short novella that I didn’t become that invested into the characters.  I think I would have liked Angie and Jed more if I got to spend a little more time with them instead of 140 pages worth. 

This doesn’t mean that I didn’t like them at all.  I loved the plot of Angie getting locked out of her room in only a towel and Jed coming to her rescue by allowing her to call the front desk in his room.  They spend the night together and as a reader, you could tell there were sparks but the flame didn’t light up like I hoped it would.  Which kind of left me wanting more.  Instead of Angie sneaking out in the morning, I was hoping that they might have had some time to connect some more on a personal level and then have the big reveal of who they are in the office meeting.

Jed seemed very forwarded and knew what he wanted why Angie kept pushing him off and making herself seem like a cold person.  It was like she wanted nothing to do with him after their night together and then all of a sudden a flip switched and she changed her mind.

I guess, all in all, it was good but it lacked a flow that kept throwing me off.
