    The Rule Maker

    The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood is book number two in the Rule Breakers series. This is Zoey Reynolds and Ryder Covington's story. Zoey is an interior designer and thought she would be working for Ryder's brother Jason. Boy is she shocked to find out her client is Ryder. Will Zoey be able to follow the rule (Don't sleep with your client...)? It should be easy to follow this rule. But, will that one-night stand they had in the past cause problems? I liked the first book in this series but I loved this book. I was hooked from the beginning. I really loved Zoey and Ryder's characters. They were a lot of fun. A great romance with a sexy couple and lots of humor. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    sexy second chance romance!

    This is a sexy and entertaining second chance romance. Zoey, an interior designer/architect and Ryder, a professional snowboarder had a one night stand while she was working on a project for Ryder's brother Jason. It ended rather abruptly when Ryder took off before morning light without explanation. Fast forward a few months and Zoey has a chance to work with Ryder's brother Jason again. He's bought a resort that was a favorite family vacation spot, and it's in run down shape desperately in need of a makeover. It means she's going to have to see Ryder again, but this time, she's not going to be so easily charmed by him - or so she thinks. There were a few plot niggles for me that I questioned. Being completely in charge of the design and renovation of a luxury resort seemed like a really big job for someone aged 24 who hadn't been in the business that long. Combining the responsibility of all that with an inner monologue that seemed more college aged didn't always mesh for me. But I liked Zoey's character overall. Ryder's explanation for why he left Zoey without a note after their initial one night stand is understandable but doesn't explain why he couldn't have contacted her in the next few days. Instead he left it alone and then when they see each other again, isn't particularly apologetic about it. It took me a bit to warm up to him. He's dealing with a snowboarding injury that is causing him a lot of stress as he worries about sponsorships for the upcoming season. His relationship with his family is complex and there are several scenes dealing with that. I really liked his brother Jason who was paralyzed in a snowboarding accident and I'm hoping a story might be in the works for him. Ryder and Zoey have that whole forbidden workplace affair thing going on, as she's got to be careful not to reveal to her boss that she's involved with her client's brother. There are some sexy scenes between them, and by the end I was invested in their relationship. It's an easy and enjoyable read. 3.5 stars.

    Pure enjoyment

    The second book in the Rule Breakers series is just as entertaining as the first...expanding upon Brogan and Lainey's story with the introduction of Ryder (Brogan's good friend) and Zoey(Lainey's roommate). The banter and dialog is just as smart and sassy, with more snark thrown in which makes for some pretty hilarious reading. The predicament that Zoey finds herself in, on Valentine's Day, when she inadvertently meets up with Ryder again after a one night stand months before, has to be one of the funniest I have read in a very long time. Ms Blackwood's comedic timing is storytelling at its finest. How Zoey earns the nickname Flash Ryder gives her is hilarious. The evolving of their relationship had some very heartwarming moments...Ryder mimicking one of Zoey's historic romance novels was one of the sweetest things anyone could have ever done for someone else. The banter between the two was charming and pulled at the heartstrings at the same time. I absolutely look forward to more from this author in the future. This book was provided by the Publisher and Netgalley, I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

    Entertaining and Enjoyable

    > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Nicely dressed man, unbuttoned, relaxed looking. Pinks in background add some pop of color. Strong title, not so strong author font. Synopsis sounds like another enjoyable read from Ms. Blackwood. > > Looking Deeper < < POV: Alternating first-person POV, clearly defined. One of the things I enjoy most about Jennifer Blackwood's books is her uniquely refreshing personality and sense of humor that she brings to the characters. They are smart and snarky. The books are as entertaining as they are enjoyable. Ryder ~> Professional snowboarder and brother to Zoey's client, Jason. Had a one-night affair with Zoey 4 months ago. He's seen as the unreliable, irresponsible one; the one with no follow-through. His career is currently sidelined after breaking his leg. Zoey ~> Interior Designer, the firm she works for was hired by Ryder's brother once already and now again for a new, huge undertaking. However, due to recent circumstances, Jason passed the duty of the renovations to the new acquisition to his little brother. Despite the awkwardness of recent developments, they have to work together and she has to keep him happy if she wants to keep her job. Secondaries ~> Lainey and Brogan (The Rule Book) are present, Jitters the slasher cat, some family, and a few co-workers balance and fill the plot nicely. Chemistry & Compatibility ~> Electric sparks, crackling and igniting anytime they even THINK about each other. This one contains more sexier, heated scenes than the first book. Dialogue & Interaction ~> On point with current situations. The bantering and inner monologues were fun as heck. Plot & Flow ~> Smooth flow, mildly dynamic plot. Not a lot of deeper topics, but plenty of drama mixed into a sexy, RomCom. Conflicts & Resolutions ~> a few conflicts were presented here and there, all of which seem to be resolved fairly well. Predictability ~> Unfortunately, I predicted the conclusion fairly early on. However, it was not a glaringly obvious thing and did not really detract from the overall story. No fun surprises. Conclusion ~> Ryder and Zoey get an implied HEA that felt slightly rushed even with a short flash-forward ending. (No pun intended) Recommendability ~> I really enjoyed the overall story and think others would, too. . Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.1 ~ Stars: 4 ========================== ⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback.

    Conflict

    Zoey loved her job as an interior designer, and the firm she works for is ecstatic about having another job from the prestigious Covington Family. Zoey has already designed one building for Jason and is excited to work with/for him again. Only she's in for a complete shock when his brother Ryder is the one waiting in her office instead of Jason. How in the world I'd she going to pull off working with him on this project when they've slept together which is one of the company's cardinal rules "Don't sleep with client".... But he want a client then, so as long as it's not repeated it'll be ok. Although she'd the throat punch him than work with him since he left like a jerk in the middle of the night. It doesn't matter that it was just a one-night stand, it was the best night and now she can't stop thinking about him. How is she going to work with him, maybe she should just hand of this project to another designer. Ryder was torn on his feelings for Zoey. He hated leaving in the middle of the night during what was supposed to be their one-night stand, but he didn't have a choice. Should he have called her, yeah probably but he'd never been in that type of situation before. Now his brother Jason has asked him to step in and work with Zoey on this project since he's home recovering with a broken leg from a snowboarding accident. How can he work worth her on this when 1-he can't so thinking about her and 2-he's not on board with this project. He thinks the place should be torn down, and add much add it positions him to admit he she's with his grandparents that the place should just be sold. How do Zoey and Ryder decide to make working together on this protest work? You'll have to read THE RULE MAKER to find out. Oh but this romantic comedy was great! You'll be chuckling if not laughing out loud throughout their banter. Their banter is hilarious, from page one I refused to put this book down! The sexual tensions are OFF THE CHARTS from the get go between Ryder and Zoey. Another spectaculiar hit from Jennifer Blackwood. I haven't read the Rule Book (Rule breakers#1) yet, but I'll definitely have to go read what I missed out on. These are stand alone stories with characters that blend together. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSagePR/Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Favorite Passages~ ~ “With the way my pulse races when I see you, I can safely say it’s accounted for.” ~ there was only one passenger on this train: me.
