A brand new series set in a whole new world.
Dalton: Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.
That's why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero: the late, Garry F. Brockton. He created an all-male haven for ambitious men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.
Until Brockton dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn't share his vision.
Everyone agrees Penny can't stay. I don't want to get involved, but she doesn't understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her out. She's not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she's also in real danger.
Siding with her would be career suicide.
Betraying her was never my intention.
This is an exciting new series by one of my favorite authors. The premise is that there is an apartment complex that has traditionally catered to bachelors and the owner has recently passed away. His niece has taken over ownership and has leased one of the apartments to a woman. Dalton is one of the bachelors who has been living in the apartment building an braced the lifestyle and finds that his new neighbor is the sister of the woman the apartment is rented to. I'm not going to lie, Dalton is a huge jerk for the first half of this book, something the first person perspective made more apparently by getting a view of his interior monologue. Penny is on the opposite spectrum from Dalton, instead of being career focused and driven, she prefers to live her life making the world better and working enough to accomodate that lifestyle. Neither understands what would drive the other to want to be the way they are, but that doesn't stop the instant attraction they have when they meet. Seeing the two work through this helps both of them grow and is at times very comical for the reader. I also enjoyed the subplot relationship between Penny and her sister -- who is much more like Dalton than Penny -- and how they work through similar issues at the same time. I look forward to getting to know more of the bachelors better in future stories and how they adjust to women invading their terrority.
OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
