The sexual tension is palpable; the erotic path they’re on is inevitable.
Haylee Holloway has experienced more grief than a twenty-two year old should have to endure. When she moves to LA for a fresh start and takes a job as an assistant for an advertising company the last thing she expects is to have to step in last minute during a photo shoot as the model. Her bikini line and weight are suddenly open topics of discussion, and a client’s million dollar campaign is hanging in the balance. To cap it off, the multi-millionaire, gorgeous owner of the company shows up and takes charge.
Josh Singer, the owner of Gamble Advertising is private, intense, and hard to read. His voice is sexy, his eyes are smoldering and when he learns of Haylee’s goal to save money for law school, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse: To move to New York City and work for him directly as his assistant. Haylee’s dilemma: how does she travel the world with a hot boss whose voice alone conjures up an erotic fantasy and not completely make a fool of herself? Frustrated with Josh’s mixed signals, Haylee finally puts it all on the line. Blurring both their professional and personal lives can they keep things temporary as planned or will they both realize some things weren’t meant to end?

Book 1 in the Something series. This book is a standalone.

Haylee Holloway is ready to move on with her life. After the death of both her parents, she is determined to save enough money to realise her dream of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a lawyer. Having moved to L.A to become an assistant at a successful advertising company, she has the next few years mapped out in front of her. But all well laid plans are meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

Josh Singer. Multi-millionaire. Check! Successful business man. Check! Divorced and single. Check!

When Haylee finds herself forced to step into the shoes of a supermodel, what she doesn’t expect is to be paraded in front of the hot company boss, Josh Singer. But her dedication catches Josh’s eye and he soon makes her an offer she can’t refuse, bringing her dreams of attending an Ivy League school one step closer. She just has to maintain a professional distance; easy! Or is it…

Okay, so the whole Millionaire/CEO romances used to be a real guilty pleasure of mine. I devoured them until one day I realised I was just reading the same old crap, rehashed with a different cover and a different author. So I have to tell you that it has been a long time since I have wanted to pick up a book of this type. When I was asked to review Tell Me Something, I don’t mind telling you I was more than a little hesitant. I like my books to have more than the 1 dimensional stories and characters that this genre is awash with. Let me tell you now, Aubrey Bondurant has seriously delivered with her debut novel. It really is a bloody gem of a story.

Unlike so many authors who write in this genre, she has really thought about the story she has put together. She has created two strong protagonists that have their own stories; thankfully no timid shrinking violets to put us to sleep, or the whole dominant, submissive yawn fest that quite frankly is well past its sell by date. What we have is two characters that are equal in their wants and needs and who have great depth, light and shade to them. She takes them and us on a journey, which leads them from the dullness of the past and into a brighter and happier future… well hopefully. You will need to read it yourself to find that out.

But what I loved most about this book was the way it was written. Aubrey mixes serious, sex (very hot sex), angst and light hearted humour so well; creating a book that I really struggled to put down. I am seriously gobsmacked that this is her first book. Let me say, many an accomplished writer don’t have the skills to write in such a flowing way. That takes talent, and Ms Boudurant has it in spates.

 

A brilliant romance full of great characters, sex, humour and angst. I loved it and can’t wait to turn my kindle on and read book 2, Ask Me Something. If you love your CEO/Millionaire reads or if like me you were jaded by them, give it a go… you won’t regret it!
