Review by: Onnica
Basic story: Jordan McAdam is a woman with a mission. Having been laid off from work in the past, she’s determined to set up in business and be her own boss. That means no more kowtowing to sleazy, overbearing bosses who like chasing her around desks. A woman can’t be too careful in Washington DC. That’s where she got the idea for her business, Everything You Need to Know. A dating service where women can share their experiences of the men they’ve dated. The movers and shakers and the city’s playboys are all rated online, whether it’s their bedroom skills or manners, it’s all there. Jordan’s been stung in the past and she’s definitely over love. Then she meets Forest Redder.
Forest is a sharp shooter. He’s direct, demanding and knows where he’s headed in business. If only his personal life were so ordered. When he meets Jordan he becomes intrigued. She’s smart, beautiful and after some digging, it’s clear she isn’t all she seems. He’s determined to get to know her better and when they’re together, that’s when things really heat up…
Why you should read this: This is another fun, quick read that will make you smile. Jordan is whip smart, absolutely clueless about her feelings for Forest and just needs the love of a good guy. Forest is tall, dark and very handsome. He commands a room just by being in it. He’s fair-minded and an all-round perfect partner.
What you might hate: Nothing to hate on here. It’s a quick, light read. No angst, no heartache and it all wraps up neatly at the end. It can be read in one sitting, while you’re trying to decide what to read next.
Rating: 3/5 a refreshing, satisfying read where all’s right with the world by the final sentence. Liked it a lot.
