Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy

Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you've screamed so loud you can't breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips - on the surface he's pure perfection.

Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.

Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day's site visit.

So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.

Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL is a fun and sexy read, full of humor and laughter. I enjoyed the banter between Olivia and Cole a lot; the chemistry between them sizzles and leaps off the pages. While lust is very much a part of the attraction between them, I love that the author took the time to develop their relationship, and there was a pivotal scene wherein you can see how their relationship changed from lust and physical attraction to something deeper.

The story is well-plotted and well-written, and the pacing just right. I breezed through the story, foregoing sleep in order to know what happened next. It was that compelling.

I can't wait to read the next book, which features Olivia's friend and a prince!
