Within the doors of Sunset Reads William Jameson has come home to take over his mother’s New York publishing house after her death. He’s ready to turn things around when an electrifying encounter with the company’s sexy bestselling author makes him change his priorities to more sensual plans. While his cruel stepfather has decided he wants control of the company, William tries to remain focused as images of soft brown eyes and sensual lips continue to keep him up at night.
Cristina Cruz suddenly finds herself with part ownership of Sunset Reads. Not only has the previous owner left her with part of the publishing house, but also at the mercy of her son William, the company’s handsome new CEO, who seems to be determined to drive her crazy. Not only is he annoyingly attractive, but his alluring blue eyes continue to send shivers down her spine. Working side by side with him becomes all the more torturous as his enticing looks and their heated encounters send her senses reeling.
Sunset Reads is my favourite contemporary romance so far this year.
Sparks fly and tempers flare from the outset as Cristina and William clash over working arrangements and deadlines. I loved how hot headed Cristina was and how it didn't take much on William's behalf to make her fly off the handle. He is arrogant and authoritarian in his approach which really annoyed Cristina. I enjoyed watching her tear strips off him when he annoyed her. Will isn't the type to back down but I like how he immediately apologises when he cools down after an argument and finds a sensible solution to whatever problem is at hand.
Away from work William shows a different side to his personality and Cristina can't help but be charmed by him. William also finds Cristina irresistible. Their fiery relationship becomes equally passionate as they acknowledge their attraction to each other and they strive to strike a balance between work and play.
William's stepfather is a nasty piece of work and his story arc added good suspense to the novel. I couldn't wait to see him get his comeuppance.
The storyline involving Cristina's ex added another layer of tension and allowed William to show his protective side.
I loved Sunset Reads. I highly recommend William and Cristina's story and I can't wait to read more from this author.
