"It's just a job, how hard can it be?”

I was hired by his father to become his live-in caregiver. It sounded like an easy job. But the day I arrived at his broken-down Scottish castle I started to realize it might not be as easy as I thought.

I was not told that I'd be looking after a dark, brooding, rich man mired in a world of pain.
I was not told that this man would push all my buttons and test even my strongest limits.
I was not told that he was devastatingly gorgeous with a wickedly, sinful mouth.
I was definitely not told that what I'd end up feeling and what he would propose would drive me wild.

But I'm Annie and this is my new job. And damn it, I'm not going to let anything, even him, that gorgeous, sinful, delicious man, stand in my way.

You believe me? Don't you?

My Review:

From the intriguing synopsis to the eye-catching cover, I was really impressed with just how well the author executed the story. Not only were the characters relatable, but the overall setting remained by of Beauty and the Beast. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Ian, a wealthy playboy whose partying life had to end abruptly after having an accident. That left him handicapped and unable to take care of himself fully, and that is when his father goes behind his back to hire a full time caretaker. When he meets Annie for the first time, Ian is a complete jerk to her and demands that she leaves immediately. But when his father gives him an ultimatum of whether to accept Annie’s help or lose his inheritance, Ian has no choice but to call Annie and ask for her help. It is with time that these two start to get along while living under the same roof. Though Ian may seem to have a hard exterior, Annie slowly brings out the good in him. After spending time together, he begins to develop feelings for Annie and that would ultimately decide his future with her.

On the other hand, Annie never expected to be taking care of a total recluse while living in a very old Scottish castle. She desperately needs the money to take care of her family and save to move to the city to pursue her dream career. She knows that taking care of Ian is not going to be easy, but she remains hopeful while staying busy at the castle. It is through her little projects in the castle that she manages to get Ian to notice her and be more social with her. When he starts to open up to her, it immediately becomes evident that the playboy that everyone knows might just have deeper feelings after all and she starts to fall for him fast. Now she has to decide if staying with him is worth it by sacrificing her dreams or not.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story, it was filled with so much chemistry between the characters that will leave you wanting for more. The author manages to develop their feelings for each other naturally and not rush into things fast. Annie is good for Ian, she pushes him to do things that he wouldn’t otherwise have done by himself. It’s evident from the beginning that Ian is holding back part of his past that gets revealed throughout the story, and that has made him the way he is. He holds back a lot and when he is around Annie he feels that he can trust her with anything. There are a few twists and turns to the story as well. Though I liked the characters and the story as a whole, it did felt a bit rushed towards the very very end. There is a time gap in between that worked for the story, however I felt that some things were still unresolved. Needless to say, I still liked the book and I would highly recommend it. I will most definitely be reading more from the author in the future. ;)

My Rating: 4.5/5


Callie Harper writes hot, fun page-turning romances. She is powered by coffee, wickedly sexy bad boys, and all things funny, intentional or otherwise. Born on the East Coast where she learned the joys of fast-paced sarcastic banter, she and her family are now kickin’ it in the West Coast sunshine. On any given day there’s a good chance you’ll find Callie outdoors enjoying the gorgeous Bay Area, but if she’s indoors, she’ll likely be reading, writing or eating, preferably all at once.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
