Opposites attract. Enemies ignite...
There's nothing personal stylist Tabitha Drake loves more than pissing off Andrew Bode. He's uptight, he refuses to agree with her on anything, and she loathes the hideous brown suits and red power ties he wears. The man even hates ice cream. How can her best friend work for a man who hates ice cream? But the absolute worst thing about Drew? He's sexy as hell, and she's totally and ridiculously attracted to him.
Andrew Bode, CEO of the Bode-Wynn military contracting firm, is convinced he and Tab will never get along. Unfortunately, the infuriating—and sinfully tempting—stylist is his ticket to a major account. The only way to get what he wants is to agree to Tab's terms: a style makeover. However, Drew has a few terms of his own, most of which involve her naked in his bed. But neither of them are prepared when their lust-fueled hostility turns into something altogether unexpected...
When I read Nina Crespo’s debut novella, Take me if You Dare, the first book in her Birthday Dare Series, I couldn’t wait to read more from her and see what else she had in store for the series. Unfortunately, Naughty Little Wishes did not live up to its predecessor. I HATED Tabitha from the very beginning. Yes, hate is a very strong word but it applies to her. Because of her, I found the book hard to read.
Tabitha Drake is a personal stylist who travels the country, taking people’s closets apart and giving them a new look. I won’t deny that she’s good at her job. My problem is that she thinks she always right and that she can do whatever the heck she wants. News flash, she’s not always right and she doesn’t understand or seem to care that her actions have consequences.
Andrew Bode is co-founder and CEO of Bode-Wynn, a private security firm. Yes, he’s young. Yes, he’s rigid and set in his ways. But a past tragedy has made him so. In all honesty, my like of Andrew is what boasted my review of this book up.
Nina definitely stepped up the heat level from the first book, but failed when it came to the characters. But with that said, I’m still looking forward to reading more books from her and this series.
