Review ~ Nice Work if You Can Get It by Linda Morris with a giveaway
Released August 5, 2014
Publisher: Swoon Romance
Andrew Sheffield and Ally Arietta meet in paradise: Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They have nothing in common: He’s a workaholic CEO, embittered after the failure of his first marriage. She’s been caring for her ailing Sicilian grandmother who’s just passed away, and now she’s ready to put herself first for a change. The sparks fly, but Andrew is no easy guy to get along with. His workaholic ways have them bickering from the start, but Ally decides that doesn’t matter: It’s just a fling.
But when Ally nearly dies during a para-sailing accident, Andrew realizes she means much more to him than casual sex. The accident causes Ally to run scared: She’s vowed to put herself first after years of self-sacrifice. She breaks it off and returns to Chicago to resume the life she interrupted to care for her grandmother, but she hasn’t seen the last of Andrew, who is determined not to let her walk away.

Up until recently, Ally has been taking care of her Nonna. There was little time for her (not that she complained),. When her friend Serena offers her a get away she takes it.
In Mexico she meets Andrew. He is a bitter, overbearing, workaholic.
I didn't really connect with either of these characters, though I must say that I much preferred Ally to Andrew.
The plot was great but not connecting with the characters, had it's toll. I couldn't really enjoy the book as much as I may have if I liked the characters.
That being said, Andrew was much better after Ally had an accident.
Let me just say if the blurb sounds good to you, try it. Chances are that you will really like it.
The storyline was good, the pace was consistent, and the length of the book was just right.
I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. The book was pretty good. It was me that had the problem, I couldn't connect with the characters. Anyone that knows me can tell you that the characters are my favorite part to most books. That is why this book left me with only a luke-warm feeling.
