Opposites attract. Enemies ignite…
There’s nothing personal stylist Tabitha Drake loves more than pissing off Andrew Bode. He’s uptight, he refuses to agree with her on anything, and she loathes the hideous brown suits and red power ties he wears. The man even hates ice cream. How can her best friend work for a man who hatesice cream? But the absolute worst thing about Drew? He’s sexy as hell, and she’s totally and ridiculously attracted to him.
Andrew Bode, CEO of the Bode-Wynn military contracting firm, is convinced he and Tab will never get along. Unfortunately, the infuriating—and sinfully tempting—stylist is his ticket to a major account. The only way to get what he wants is to agree to Tab’s terms: a style makeover. However, Drew has a few terms of his own, most of which involve her naked in his bed. But neither of them are prepared when their lust-fueled hostility turns into something altogether unexpected…
The first time Tab and Drew meet they rub each other the wrong way. When Drew needs to reland a business contract and part of the deal is getting Tab a very famous personal stylist for the the daughter of the person he wants to get to renew his contract he makes a deal with Tab. Her price is to restyle him. When she can’t get a hotel in the area the only option is for her to stay at Drew’s place. Will their passion ignite into something more or will they crash and burn?
Tab and Drew have one of those love-hate attraction’s going on in the beginning but watching them get to know each other was my favorite part of the book. Tab and Drew have great smoking hot chemistry that just sizzles off the pages. I loved how different Tab and Drew were. They disagreed on almost everything. I think that’s why they were attracted to each other. They saw things in the personality of the other they didn’t have. Tab is just what Drew needs in his life someone to challenge him and teach him how to relax. Drew may be rough on the outside but underneath everything he really is a wonderful guy. Drew has spent so many years blaming himself and not letting himself have a life as punishment for something he thinks is his fault. Tab also carries a lot of blame around about her brother and wants to help Drew let go and stop blaming himself. When Drew took care of Tab while she was sick was when I fell in love with him and started seeing them really fall for each other. I loved how Tab seemed to just get Drew and loved the shower scene were she comforted him. I loved Drew’s business partner and hope his book is next. Tab’s mother was a hoot and almost everything that came out of her mouth had me laughing. Sadly she wasn’t in the book that much. I also loved Tab’s best friend and found out her book is the first in the series so I can’t wait to read that. I thought the ending was so sweet. I just loved this book and recommend it to anyone who loves a opposites attract romance with heat and lovable secondary characters you want to get their own books.
