VBT: Giveaway & Review ~ Puppy Love by Sylvie Fox
There are only two things Sophie Reid doesn’t do: lawyers and sex. When sexy, lawyer Ryan Becker stumbles into her life, her first two thoughts are “no,” and “definitely no.” After Sophie and Ryan rescue a dog from certain death on the Hollywood Freeway, they share one smoldering kiss. Sophie knows a potential train wreck when she sees it and leaves the dog and Ryan at the pound knowing she’ll never see either of them again.
Poor kid turned corporate attorney, Ryan vowed he’d get an education, succeed, and be welcomed in the front door of the most stately homes in Beverly Hills. Now that his career is on an upward trajectory, he is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, the women he has been meeting haven’t set his heart racing. Enter: Sophie.
A master of persuasion by profession, Ryan convinces Sophie to pursue their undeniable mutual attraction. But Ryan’s quest to be a success at the very occupation she reviles rankles her.
When a Hollywood union strikes, Ryan and Sophie find themselves on opposite sides of the bargaining table. Can their sparks in the bedroom overcome their standoff in the boardroom?
Here's an excerpt:
Sophie turned and looked directly into his dark blue eyes, sizing him up.
“Mmmm . . . a big, strong guy like you can surely handle him while I check in,” she said, handing him the dog before he could protest.
As soon as he gathered the distressed dog on his lap and made a space for himself on the bench, it promptly urinated on his very neatly pressed dress pants. One of the clinic staff people rushed over with paper towels and a spray bottle of disinfectant, and Sophie unsuccessfully hid her laugh behind her hand at the way the man was holding the dog under its front legs like it was a smelly baby, his arms outstretched as far as they would go.
Though she wanted nothing more than to snatch up the wiggling dog and send the nerve-jarring hunk on his way, Sophie held her ground. It was far more interesting to see what he would do next. She predicted he would make up a bogus excuse and be out of the clinic in a heartbeat – Sophie was one hundred percent sure this man did not get urinated on too often.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I write the kinds of books I love to read. The quirky characters in my romance novels experience angst, conflict, mostly great sex, and always get their "happily ever after." In my mainstream fiction, ordinary woman experience angst, conflict, and occasional great sex, but they also get embroiled in struggles against extraordinary odds, and I don't promise a happy ending. I also love thrillers, but I don't write those. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, son, and a whole lot of pets. When I'm not hanging out in Hollywood, I'm eating my way through Budapest.
