With a death of Vince Horace, the fashion world has lost a great icon. Marco Lent has been by his side for ten years and is ready to take over in his place. As his only heir, he will follow Vince’s vision and carry on his legacy. But Avery McKenna throws a wrench in those plans when she claims to be a mysterious heir that no one knew about. Who is this lady in fashion challenged combat boots? All Marco knows is she needs to go.
“I don’t know what I expected, but I assumed, after that night we spent together there would be a small bit of affection between us, a familiarity that might smooth over our interchanges. Instead, he’s an exposed wire, hot with electricity and one step away from lighting everything on fire.”
I would never have dreamed up a story idea as unique as this one. I really was sucked into this story trying to figure out how this all would work out. Marco seemed really likeable to me even though he played the “bad guy” quite a bit. There was just something endearing about his relationship with Vince and all those years they shared together. I truly got the feeling that his heart was in the right place. Avery was just such a mystery to me as far as her motivation at first. She came across sketchy as hell. A little “too” street smart. But these two together? Swoon!!! I loved the banter and Vince’s wicked sense of humor. There were cute little reminders left around that really made me smile. The story really left me with a warm feeling at the end.
I love Alessandra Torre’s way of inserting those smart comedic moments in her story. I always find myself chuckling at some quirky scene that pops up with a crazy name or playful pillow talk. Definitely makes those books worth reading.
