This is the compete Annihilate Me series boxset.
Description: The business of love is dangerous.
For Jennifer Kent, a recent MBA graduate who has been searching for work in Manhattan for four long months, time and money are running out. If she doesn’t find work soon, she’ll need to return to her native Maine, where the job situation is even more bleak.
And where her abusive parents lie in wait.
But when an unorthodox arrangement is proposed, Jennifer decides to take it. She agrees to be the “girlfriend” of Alexander Wenn, the reluctant, billionaire CEO of Wenn Enterprises, who is so devastatingly good looking, he needs a beautiful woman like Jennifer on his arm to “keep the wolves at bay.”
In this case, the wolves are other women, all of whom vie for his attention so aggressively, they keep him from focusing on business at the exclusive events he must attend. It’s there that deals are cut. What they want is his money and his power. Damaged by a past event, the only thing Alex wants to do is focus on work. And to forget the past.
But can Jennifer deny their white-hot chemistry? As she’s swept into this glittering otherworld of society and big business, she finds herself struggling to keep from falling for Alex, an almost impossible feat she nevertheless must meet.
Armed with her MBA, Jennifer Kent knows about business. But what she doesn’t know is what could destroy her–the business of protecting her own heart. And maybe her own life when it’s put on the line time and again.
I loved reading this series. I’m also glad that I read the whole boxset because the whole story just flowed well. I didn’t even notice when one book finished and the other started, I was that drawn in.
I loved the characters. Jennifer is fantastic. She’s got so much wit and sass, and I loved how she treated some of those overly rich people at those parties. She made a point that being rich was no excuse not to have manners. I loved how she was smart too. She actually earned her job with Alex. I loved her devotion towards Alex as well.
Alex was also a brilliant character. I loved him. He just wanted to get on with his work and progress his business when he first met Jennifer. She took him by surprise. I loved how he was with her, and I loved seeing their relationship grow. They were brilliant together and their devotion was second to none. You could see the love between them, and after everything they both went through in the past, it was satisfying to see them happy.
Lisa, Blackwell and Tank were also great characters. They each had their own personalities which added to the plot.
The storyline was good. It built up well and left you wondering until the last moment. It developed at a good pace and flowed well. Even though the parties could be a little repetitive, they got to the point. They added to the story instead of repeating themselves. It was done well.
Overall, I loved reading this series and really enjoyed it. I loved Alex and Jennifer.
My rating: 5/5*
