Review: Storms in a Shot Glass by Zee Monodee #Romance

The Blurb
A little bump is about to make a lot of ripples...

The quiet, orderly life of personal assistant Jane Smithers takes a ninety-degree turn the day she finds out she accidentally got pregnant from a one-night stand. This is one complication she doesn't need, especially when one knows her world is peopled by lunatic Russian models, an immature boss posing as a CEO, and a mother who would make shark-infested waters look like a midsummer country pond.

The world of corporate lawyer and billionaire tycoon Michael Rinaldi is ruled by cold, hard logic, and straight-on facts. Until the day he meets Jane, and suddenly he has no idea why this insignificant-looking woman has the knack of plunging him head-first into the churning waters of tempestuous emotion and hot-headed impulse.

The last thing either needs is to get tangled in a tabloid frenzy.
Throw in a baby neither thought they wanted and add a dash of very gossipy scandal, and suddenly Jane and Michael realize that the world as they've known it so far will never be the same again.

But will they be able to live with this reality?

My Review
This is a romance with a wonderfully slow burn.  You know the kind where you get to know the characters and really like them. Where it looks like the couple will get together, and then something pulls them apart making the attraction between the hero and heroine even stronger.

I loved Jane. A strong woman who could handle her boss and her mother, and yet was vulnerable in one major area. Don’t get me started on Michael. Rich, powerful, and alpha to the max – there was no way I couldn’t like him, even when some of his actions were questionable.

A fantastic story.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review but I would have bought it at Amazon.

I give Storms in a Shot Glass five out five maternity dress shaped chocolate bars.


I love reading your comments.
