NYC’s most eligible bachelor, Brit Bencher, is also known as The Slayer for his reputation in the boardroom…and the bedroom. And he’ll do anything to take care of his family, even seduce high-powered corporate attorney Tori Anderson in the hopes of getting her to reveal confidential information about one of her clients. But for the first time in his life, he finds he’s falling for a woman.
…and then he started to break them.
After juggling the demands of her career and the stress of caring for her ailing mother, Tori Anderson doesn’t have time for relationships—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to feel like a woman. When Brit offers a no-strings attached fling, it sounds like exactly what she needs. But what will she do when Brit decides he won’t take “one night stand” for an answer? When Tori uncovers his lies, will he lose his chance with her forever?
First of all, I have to say I've always been a fan of romance novels if they're well written. I consider well written to mean they have a plot and characters who are more than skin deep and maybe some dialogue to go along with the all the naughty scenes. I am so happy to report that Inara Scott's Rules of Negotiation fits all these criteria. The story is sweet and funny while still being sexy, the characters are well developed and likable and the plot moves steadily, pulling you along for the ride.
This book draws you in from the very beginning and you are rooting for the characters and their happy ever after before long. I laughed, cried and sighed as the story went on. My husband laughed at me but I don't care, I'm used to it. :) The story is told from the third person perspective and it's really fun to see both sides as the couple struggles with their unexpected feelings for one another.
Inara Scott is such a talented voice in the romance genre. Her ability to tell a compelling story really translates into any genre she tries her hand at. I cannot wait to read her next endeavor.
