Book review: Assets by Shannon Dermott

Author: Shannon Dermott
Title: Assets
Series: Balance Sheet #1
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
My Copy: E-book from Amazon
Purchase: Amazon
My rating: 5 feet

Bailey Glicks, an accountant, is all too aware of her asset value. She’s pretty but not beautiful, smart but not a genius, and certainly she thinks she is more than enough for her fiancĂ©. All that changes when she catches his cheating ass in a lie.

Needing to get away and start anew, she heads to New York to stay with her best friend and former college roommate, Lizzy who has more than enough space to accommodate her. What she didn’t bank on are two things.

First, Kalen Brinner, a man whose implied wealth and attractiveness on paper, shouldn’t be interested in her. But their combined sexual attraction sparks off like fireworks. Will it be enough to sustain a relationship, especially when circumstance makes one of them appear less than trustworthy? Can they survive the heat or will they combust in the flame of their own passion?

Second, when the assets in audit she’s working feel like they’ve been tainted with fraud; her supervisor isn’t buying her theory.

And if she’s wrong about either, both could make her lose big. One her heart. The other her job

My thoughts:

I fell inlove with Shannon Dermotts books when I first read Beg for Mercy and as much as I love the Cambion series I was really excited to see that this one was released.
That gave me something great to read while waiting for Angel of Mercy =)
I had no doubt that this book was to be great after reading the plot. And of course since it's Shannons work.

Well then, to get to the point. This book was fantastic and had me wanting more. I can't wait to get my hands on Liabilities!
The story itself was great with twists and turns and I had a hard time putting the book down.
It was a steamy story from page one which I loved. It just dug right in there and didn't stop until the last page.

Bailey was likable and it was easy to feel for her. She had a ruff patch when her fiance cheated on her but she kicked him of the curb and left for another city, New York.
She is strong minded and that I love.

In comes Kalen. Swoon! what can I say except I love him! He is your typical "bad boy". He is possesive, good in bed and rich. LOVE!

I can really recommend this one!
