The Other C-Word (In Other Words #1) by M.K. Schiller
Can she overcome her consuming desire for him? Can he make her comfortable with the other C-word... commitment?
Marley Mason is dreading the arrival of the new business consultant. After all, this man will most likely outsource her job to China. The last thing she would expect is a case of mistaken identity, leading to false accusations of kidnapping when she attempts to pick up the wrong man at the airport, or worse... that she would have such a visceral reaction to the right man.
Rick Randy is super sexy, scandalously flirty and perfect masturbation material, but a relationship is out of the question. Rick is contracted on a temporary basis to fix Marley’s ailing company, then pull out, although as he expresses to Marley, pulling out is difficult for him, in more ways than one! Marley’s feelings range from utter confusion to intense contemplation as Rick charms his way into her life. All of those C-words Marley can control, but it’s the other C-word she fears—commitment.
The Other C-Word captivated me from the beginning! It was cute, clever and comical! Ok.. no more c words for me!
Marley is closed off. She doesn't do relationships and with good reason. Rick is sexy, flirtatious and determined! There's obvious chemistry between the two but Marley tries desperately to keep her distance. Even after the two of them become involved, there are certain secrets she just can't share with Rick.
The beginning was hysterical! I could not stop laughing out loud! R U Randy???
As the story progressed things between Marley and Rick got pretty steamy. Not only was he a possessive alpha, but he was also an old fashion gentleman. I loved his character! And the fact he resembles Chris Pine didn't hurt either!
I very much enjoyed Marley's family dynamics. Her sisters and mother brought lots of tenderness and laughter to the story. I also felt for Dillon, her best friend. I'd like a book on him! That would be an interesting story!!!
It was very sweet, cute, funny, sad at times and very enjoyable. I felt the ending was a tad rushed though. I was happy with how things ended, but would have liked a more drawn out happy ending. AMAZON
