He’s her grumpy boss. She’s his nemesis. How thin is the line between love/hate?
Entrepreneur Ryan Michaels never loses. Well, except that time, a few years ago when he lost a promotion to spoiled rich girl, Charlotte “Charlie” Ray. Now he’s forced to hire his nemesis to secure funding to develop a string of luxury boutique hotels. Not only does she not fit his corporate vision, but she’s too damn attractive for her own good. And his.
Working as VP of Sales and Marketing for a luxury hotel is Charlie’s dream job. Too bad her boss is Ryan Michaels, the same pompous stick-in-the-mud that she remembers. If he tells her that this project is his legacy one more time, she might scream. Or maybe kissing him will get him to shut up?
Because that’s the other thing. The sizzling attraction between Ryan and Charlie is impossible to ignore. But everyone knows not to mix business and pleasure. Don’t they?

What a fantastic start to a series! I’m looking forward to meeting all of the guys, the women who make them fall, and getting a glimpse at each unique hotel location. I’ve never been to the west coast, so this is like a vacation!
Ryan is used to being number one in everything he does. And only one time has he ever been beaten – by Charlie. He’s man enough to admit that she earned that win, but it doesn’t deter him from pushing harder in life to maintain that top spot. Even though Ryan is backed into a corner and forced to hire Charlie, he quickly discovers how much better they are working together, rather than apart.
Charlie has her own secrets and needs to make this job work — no matter how difficult Ryan makes it. She burned bridges to get here and she’ll prove that she’s worthy of the position. I love her camaraderie with her best friend, with the guys, and Ryan’s family. Charlie gets a little bit of redemption in regard to her childhood. That aspect shows the depth of her character and makes me love her a little more!
I’m looking forward to diving into the entire California Suits collection!
