It’s time for another review! I’m so excited about this one – not because Tracey Livesay is a new author, but because she’s a new-to-me author (which is just as fun). She’s also a damn good writer, so I’m happy to share my love of her book, Love On My Mind, with you.
Love On My Mind by Tracey Livesay
This book was released in 2016, and it was Tracey’s Avon Impulse debut, which totally counts toward my commitment to read more debut authors *cough*. The heroine, Chelsea, is a PR executive who is hired to turn reluctant (and grumpy!) hero, Adam, into someone people would actually want to buy his latest product from. Which would be completely fine, except that Adam doesn’t want help. His focus is solely on his product, which is the only important part for him. Unfortunately, Adam’s partners don’t agree, and Chelsea is dispatched to assist undercover. No minefields there, right?
The Short-and-Sweet Review
I really love Love On My Mind. It has strong, relatable characters who, when paired together, light the page on fire. I also love that the heroine unashamedly pervs over the hero in this book. (Really, what are romance heroes even there for if not to be perved over?) Though I’m not generally a fan of the conflict relating to a secret being revealed, it’s dealt with effectively here. It’s also resolved quickly. I absolutely recommend this book if you’re in the mood for a sexy contemporary read!
Successful PR executive Chelsea Grant is one assignment away from making partner at her firm and nothing will stand in her way. Her big break? Turn a reclusive computer genius into a media darling in time for his new product launch. He may have been dubbed the “sexiest geek alive” but he has no patience for the press—and it shows. Piece of cake, right? Only problem is… his company doesn’t want him to know they hired her.
After a disastrous product launch two years ago, tech CEO Adam Bennett knows the success of his new device depends on the media’s support. When a twist of fate brings the beautiful PR specialist to his door, Adam hires Chelsea to help turn his image around. Their attraction is undeniable and the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to keep things professional.
But when Adam discovers Chelsea’s deception, will she risk everything for her career or is love the real thing on her mind?
