    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!

    Sweet, romantic and a little bit of sass

    The CEO is the second in the Millionaire Malones series and takes us back into the world of the super sexy Malone brothers at a time of great sadness, and great change for all of them. We pick up at the funeral of William James Malone, father of the Malone brothers. It is the first time they have all come together in a while and they haven't always seen eye to eye. The relationships are still strained but they come together to farewell their larger-than-life father and finalise his affairs. My only real issue with this book, apart from the fact that it's a novella and way too short, is I found it really hard to get my head around the fact that Callum's ex-wife came to the funeral, and dragged her sister with her. I understand that even after couples separate you sometimes get the ex coming to pay their respects, usually after they have been together for a long time and shared a bond with the deceased and that just didn't seem to be the case here. We soon discover that there is a lot more than meets the eye here; and besides they needed to attend for the rest of the story to play out. Callum is the CEO of the family's multi-national business, and recent owner of a gorgeous beachside house. But not any old beach, the views from his balcony are of a secluded beach with limited access. Being at the helm of Malone Enterprises has meant he hasn't spent a lot of time in the new house and he hasn't made it homey. Discovering that Ava Gibson, his ex-sister-in-law, is a talented landscape designer prompts him to hire her for his multi-level garden; as a distraction but not the way you might think. Callum is scarred by the failure of his marriage and a little bitter about being the brother shouldering the responsibility for Malone Enterprises, and his life revolves around his work. He seems to be one of the good guys, trying to live a quiet laid-back life in spite of his wealth. There is more to this story than meets the eye and it isn't until near the end that the pieces come together. The chemistry between Callum and Ava is palpable but one of them runs as soon as things start to look a little real. Ava couldn't possibly allow anything to happen, he's her sister's ex-husband and that is totally wrong; and Callum isn't going to risk giving his heart to another woman after the devastation he felt in the wake of his divorce. We, of course, see more of Chris and Cooper, the other two Malone brothers and spend a little time catching up on their lives. Chris and Ellie have married and are expecting their first child and are ecstatically living their happily ever after. Cooper is still an enigma but from the beginning I just knew that all would be revealed in a third Millionaire Malones story. The remainder of the review will be live at Beauty and Lace.

    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)
