All the Right Places
Riley O’Brien & Co. # 1
By: Jenna Sutton
Releasing June 2, 2015
The first in a brand new contemporary romance series starring the men and women who are determined to keep the billion-dollar denim dynasty, Riley O’Brien & Co, on top, but aren’t about to let success stand in the way of love…
Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O’Brien & Co., it’s a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn’t quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O’Brien. She’s doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she's working on behind his back...
Quinn’s not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn’t wise, but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he’s taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn’t know he’s risking a lot more than his heart.
Quinn stared into Amelia’s dark eyes. The phrase “fall in and out of love” echoed in his head, and he felt strangely innervated.
With her encouraging words, she had freed him from the horrible despair that had choked him for the past several hours. His black mood was gone.
But now there was something even more dangerous in its place: desire.
Her hand was still on his, and he swore he could feel the heat of her touch radiating throughout his entire body. He took a deep breath, battling the urge to move closer to her.
He pulled his eyes from hers, and his gaze dropped to the pale skin exposed by the V-neck of her dress. She wore a silver necklace with translucent green and blue beads, and one of them had found its way into her creamy cleavage. As he stared at that lucky bead, his blood grew hotter, running thickly through his veins toward his c*ck.
His brain and his body disconnected, and he saw his hand move toward her, fingers spread.
Don’t do it! Don’t touch her!
His fingers stroked the warm skin of her throat, her pulse throbbing against his thumb. Her skin was so soft, so warm, he imagined she could heat all the cold places inside him.
Wrapping his hand around the back of her neck, he pulled her closer. She stumbled a little in her high-heeled boots, and he steadied her with a hand on her hip.
When he felt that beautiful curve within his grasp, the blood drained from his head, along with every bit of sense he possessed. With his intellect obliterated, his primal self was in control, and it wanted more.
All the Right Places is a good, solid contemporary romance with a strong storyline, entertaining characters and plenty of heat to spice everything up. The plot setup putting the story in the context of a long-established denim jeans company trying to expand their products made for a sufficiently unique story that took hold of my interest right from the start...after all, it is something women today can relate to since the premise behind the secret expansion is true (I know I always have a hell of a time finding women's jeans that actually fit ;-) ).
Amelia is a woman with a plan to drive her design career, and is strong, capable, but has never really opened up to love anyone other than her best friend. Quinn is her polar opposite, with a loving, stable family and an established family company to run-even if he's not sure if he'll be able to run it as well as his father did.
From the moment they meet sparks fly, and though Amelia tries her hardest not to let those sparks ignite, the chemistry between her and Quinn is just too hot to stop. The two of them together just blaze right off the pages, and everything between them is amazingly intense.
But Amelia has something she's not telling Quinn, and you know what happens when secrets abound...
With plenty of tension thanks to what she's hiding added to feelings spiraling out of control for both of them, it all adds up to a truly enjoyable story that I'd recommend to any lover of adult contemporary romance. 4 shining stars for All the Right Places, best only for the 18+ crowd due to adult language and several hot and steamy sexual scenes.
