Spencer Hightower's job is cleaning up other people's messes. And she is damn good at it. Unfortunately, being a supremely organized workaholic, she doesn't always easily meet guys—until Liam Connelly shows up, all high-powered and really, really sexy. Sure, he makes Spencer's pulse thump...but he's also the biggest pain in her professional life.
Liam can't believe his lousy luck when he learns that Spencer is his opposition in a high-profile scandal. She's the best at what she does and the worst possible opponent. Of course, a little professional animosity can't hurt a guy's chances for a date, can it? Even as Spencer tries to keep her distance, their attraction grows stronger...and hotter. But once they cross all kinds of professional—and personal—boundaries, the situation snowballs into a disaster that even the great Spencer Hightower can't fix...
A fun and unique story!
Thanks to Lindsay Emory I have been humming Kenny Rogers's The Gambler for over a week now (my kids are now begging me to stop singing too). Know When to Hold Him is more than a catchy title it was a very captivating story! Lindsay Emory definitely mixed together lots of entertaining things to create this great book. You get high profile movers & shakers, politicians, athletes, agents, intrigue and scandal! What a ride Spencer and Liam took us on!
Lindsay Emory is a new-to-me Author and I loved her witty dialogue, unique plot and strong characters! Know When to Hold Him is a book that is hard to describe (so I won't, you will have to read it) without explaining the whole thing! You have Spencer, who is a daughter of a Senator and is used to winning, if she can't win she doesn't play. She is a go-getter, strong, independent and ruthless in business. What is brilliant about Spencer, is she has a soft side, a side that wants her slice of happily ever after, but she doesn't know how to go for it. She settles for no strings sex to be safe and "win" in all her relationships. However, meeting Liam changes things. Liam is a smart, self-assured lead that had me at hello! He is a sports agent (see what I did there?) that works hard for his clients and is ready to ruffle Spencer's feathers. Liam was a breath of fresh air in a genre full of uber-jealous control freak men. He was able to separate (for the most part) work from personal and that is where the story heats up!
Know When to Hold Him definitely held my attention and had me turning pages way past my bedtime. I really enjoyed this story, even with all the dramatics toward the end, it kept me on my toes and I never knew what to expect with Spencer and Liam. The chemistry sizzled and the banter was fantastic!
If you are in the mood for a romance that gives you something unique, I would recommend Know When to Hold Him. You get heat, strong characters, sports, scandal and best of all two people fighting for their slice of happy!
