SHOPPING FOR LOVE - Jessica Marin
Now you know I love a Jessica Marin story, the only thing you're guaranteed is that the story will be great - all other bets are off. You might get a long running saga, a hot sweaty quickie, something sweet and steamy or some mix of all the above. Shopping for Love is a hot sweaty sweet holiday tale that will leave you wanting to go shopping for a little something something yourself.
Warren is the millionaire owner of a high end department store (think Harrods). He's sexy, he's brooding, he's standoffish, he's obsessed with work and emotionally unavailable... right up until the moment he opens his big mouth and shoves his foot half way down his throat. And that is the moment that Ari steps up and verbally kicks his ass (since with his foot in his mouth he can't kick it himself).
All Ari wants is to get through each day. She goes to work and goes above and beyond for her personal shopping clients. Helping the rich and spoilt to dress themselves isn't her dream job - but hey it pays the bills and there are a lot of those thanks to her mum's cancer treatments. She knows her mums time is short and with her dads head buried firmly in the sand, Ari will do anything she needs to keep up with the bills and spend precious moments with mum.
The last thing she needs is her overly entitled boss messing with her day and blaming her for his mistake. No way she's taking his snark! And so her frustration and sparky personality makes sure he knows exactly how much of an ass he is. How many of us have dreamt of putting an ass in his place only to worry about job security?
With a few snappy words and a toss of her hair, Ari has Warren enamoured. He's never wanted more than a fling - but she's worth so much more and he's determined to have her... not for a night, not for some fun but forever.
Ari doesn't have forever, she doesn't want to waste time with Warren that she could be spending with her mum. Enter a couple of meddling aging besties working behind the scenes, a sassy sister who likes to ensure her brother knows what a doofus he is and it's only a matter of time until the universe ensures that a simple shopping trip buys a life of love and more than a little hope for a future that was beyond reach.
This is a wonderfully uplifting and sexy hot book that will have you declaring SHUT UP & TAKE MY MONEY!
Warren Bentley knows there’s something special about Ariana Leighton from the moment the feisty little minx puts him in his place. Being the CEO of a multi-million-dollar company, he’s used to women throwing themselves at him. Yet Ari seems immune to his charm.
But Warren always gets what he wants... and he wants Ariana.
Nothing will stand in his way. Not even the fact that she’s one of his employees.

Warren makes his intentions clear, but Ari can’t afford to be distracted by his games. That is until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Will Ari be able to resist the handsome bachelor, or will Warren succeed in melting the ice surrounding her heart?
