I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.
College senior Keeley Kent is broke enough to accept a pretty penny while I teach her to be Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out.

I love the start of a new series by a favorite author and Shayla Black did not disappoint here.
We are sent to the lovely tropical paradise of the Hawaiian Island of Maui with Maxon Reed and Kelley Kent.
Maxon is a high powered real estate mogul, number one on the island, and deals with million dollar listings. He also happens to be a workaholic who is always looking out for himself, if that happens to make him a jerk so be it.
Kelley is a sassy older college student and holds down various other jobs, one of them a singer at a bar.
Maxon has learned that he has to compete with another agent to get this new multimillion dollar listing. The problem is the other agent is his younger brother Griff whom he hasn’t spoken to in three years due to a series of errors on both their parts.
Enter Kelley, the perfect distraction for Griff to drop the ball on the listing. He just has to get her to agree to be the distraction and not get distracted himself, when she shows him what he has been missing out on while being a workaholic.
Kelley is so vivacious and zen I love her!! The only thing she really wants in life is to be happy and that is a awesome thing to me. Not money, not some high powered job, just happiness something that Maxon is sorely needing, for someone who seems to have it all he has no idea what he has.
I go between wanting to smack him and feeling sorry for him. He knows nothing of love only revenge and being number one, that is the way the was raised.
He fights so hard to not fall for Kelley while getting her prepared for Griff, when the time comes to choose between her and getting the listing he does something utterly stupid.
I love the way that things come to head, its great and it came outta left field for me!! I adore getting surprised in a book and Kelley surprised the heck outta me. Music is a big part of this book and the songs that Black uses fit so well that I find myself humming them throughout the book.
The ending was perfect and finding out that Griff story was next was great. I loved Kelley and Maxon and cant wait to read Griff, I also hope to see more of their little sister.
