    The CEO

    The CEO is all about forbidden romance and hidden desires... Ava has been in love with Cal since she met him, but he belonged to another woman. She hides her attraction underneath a believable cloak of dislike and contempt. I found Ava a difficult character to like, because she was just not nice to Cal and made a lot of assumptions about him. Even as a relationship between them cautiously builds I had a hard time connecting with her. This is partly due to her character and partly the forbidden romance part of the plot which in this scenario for me was just a little too much of a turn off. I liked Cal, how he wanted to prove himself, but didn't talk poorly about anyone, instead letting Ava find things out on her own. Although a novella, the growth of their relationship didn't feel rushed. It was interesting watching the relationship between them grow and wondering if they could make anything between them work. I liked the secondary characters in this book, I saw just enough of them to keep me curious, and I liked the relationship they all had. If you like this kind of forbidden romance and well hidden lust, I would recommend The CEO.

    Excellent

    Excellent story of forbidden love and what it takes to make it! Very well written and the characters of Callum and Ava work great together. After secretly loving her ex brother-in-law for years, Ava Gibson finds herself thrust into his world after attending the funeral of his father. Callum always knew Ava didn't like him but he never really understood why. Now, working with her while she landscapes the grounds of his home he finds himself determined to prove to her he's more than she gives him credit for. This is a quick light read that I highly recommend!

    4 stars

    I liked this stories plot line and flow. The characters were well developed, and the romance was steamy. A little on the short side though.

    detailed characters with a unique problem

    I feel so bad for Ava. She not only has feelings for another woman’s man, but it is her own sister so she has to see them together all of the time. She copes the only way she knows how and hides it behind a façade of dislike. I just can’t imagine how she handled it for as long as she did. When Cal makes Ava a job offer that she can’t pass up, the two spend time together and get to know one another better. And the more Ava sees of Cal, the more her long-held feelings grow. It also allows Cal to see the woman behind the mask she’s worn around him for so many years, showing him a woman that he finds very attractive. But there are so many hurdles for the two, considering their history. Are their feelings enough? Purman deftly delivers detailed characters with a unique problem. I found it very difficult to put the book down, speeding thru the pages, hurrying to get to that HEA ending. And while I was a little curious how it would feel to be with your sister’s ex (as an only child I would think that Christmas dinner would be a little uncomfortable :) ), I think that it was handled very tastefully here. Ava and Lulu have a chance to finally discuss what happened (on all sides) and for Ava to come to terms with her feelings for Cal. It helped make that HEA even more complete. **This is the second in this series about three brothers, but (of course) I haven’t read the first. I don’t think that it really impacted anything so you are probably pretty safe starting here.** (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Love a la complications

    To be honest this book felt a little rushed or maybe the timeline was so short that it felt hurried. I felt that maybe Ava's conflicted feelings should have been highlighted some more. True she'd been in love with Cal for so long but the angst about him being her sister's ex could have been stronger. If I'd been in her place I'd probably speak to my sister first before falling into bed her ex. But in spite of that I still really enjoyed the book. The story was realistic enough to relate to and Cal's character was well defined. There was also a nice link up to "The Millionaire" and a good build up for the next book "The Rebel".
