"You know what they say about mixing business with pleasure…
When the breakdown of her marriage leaves Sadie Turner a single mum, she vows that she will make it on her own. After all, why would a smart businesswoman with a PhD and the prospect of a life-changing deal on the horizon need a man?
But Sadie’s man-ban is tested to the limit when she travels to Monaco to meet her potential investor. There she encounters Mac, a rough and ready playboy billionaire who lives life in the fast lane – and that’s when the real adventure starts!
But Sadie’s heart isn’t the only thing on the line. There’s also the business she’s worked so hard to make a success; the business that could so easily slip out of her grasp if she doesn’t seal the deal within thirty days…"
Take A Chance on Me is published under 'Hot Choc Lit', which Choc Lit describe as "slightly raised heat level but not erotica".
This book reminded me of Cold Feet at Christmas by Debbie Johnson (in terms of the steamy scenes and the strength of the connections between the main characters, rather than the Christmas theme) and if you liked that book I am sure you will enjoy this one.
There are some particularly steamy scenes in Take A Chance on Me but they are exceptionally well written. When I first started reading, I wasn't sure about Sadie; I thought she was going to be shallow and irritating but I was wrong. She soon stumbles across Mac and this instantly brought a smile to my face. The book is so well written that the connection between Sadie and Mac is exceptionally strong and it jumps off the page. It feels so real that you feel like you are living it yourself so when the inevitable problem arises, you, as a reader, feel the longing feeling in your heart as though it were your own loss.
I enjoyed the fact that although this is a romance book, it has a strong business element to it and I was not surprised to discover that Debbie Flint had a career in finance once upon a time. Whilst the romantic side of the book is not all that unpredictable, it is still gripping because the emotions are so powerful and the other side of the storyline has plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing.
Another beauty from Choc Lit.
