Things I want to say to Ryder Covington...
I hate you more than a hole in my favorite pair of leggings.
Your smirk makes me want to yell in all shouty caps.
You're really gorgeous...until you open your mouth.
Stop looking at me like that. You're not ripping my panties off.
Saying those things to him would be the whipped cream on top of my rocky road ice cream, but I can't, because he's my client. And I'm up for a promotion. Oh, and the little fact that my boss told me to give Mr. Covington everything he wants. But the only thing he wants is me. And he can't have that.

Yep! Let’s broke some rules...
Good story, funny characters and chemistry of the charts.
Zoey loved her job as an interior designer, and the firm she works for is ecstatic about having another job from the prestigious Covington Family. Zoey has already designed one building for Jason and is excited to work with/for him again. Only she's in for a complete shock when his brother Ryder is the one waiting in her office instead of Jason. How in the world I'd she going to pull off working with him on this project when they've slept together which is one of the company's cardinal rules "Don't sleep with client".... But he want a client then, so as long as it's not repeated it'll be ok. Although she'd the throat punch him than work with him since he left like a jerk in the middle of the night. It doesn't matter that it was just a one-night stand, it was the best night and now she can't stop thinking about him. How is she going to work with him, maybe she should just hand of this project to another designer.
Ryder was torn on his feelings for Zoey. He hated leaving in the middle of the night during what was supposed to be their one-night stand, but he didn't have a choice. Should he have called her, yeah probably but he'd never been in that type of situation before. Now his brother Jason has asked him to step in and work with Zoey on this project since he's home recovering with a broken leg from a snowboarding accident. How can he work worth her on this when 1-he can't so thinking about her and 2-he's not on board with this project. He thinks the place should be torn down, and add much add it positions him to admit he she's with his grandparents that the place should just be sold.
How do Zoey and Ryder decide to make working together on this protest work? You'll have to read THE RULE MAKER to find out. Oh but this romantic comedy was great! You'll be chuckling if not laughing out loud throughout their banter. Their banter is hilarious, from page one I refused to put this book down! The sexual tensions are OFF THE CHARTS from the get go between Ryder and Zoey. Another spectaculiar hit from Jennifer Blackwood. I haven't read the Rule Book (Rule breakers#1) yet, but I'll definitely have to go read what I missed out on. These are stand alone stories with characters that blend together. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSagePR/Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Breaking the rules has never been so much fun...
The Rule Maker
By: Jennifer Blackwood
4.5 Star Review by Kristie K
Breaking the rules has never been so much fun…
Zoey Reynolds loves her job, and when she is tasked with completing a second design job for a very important client, she prepares herself to deal with the powerful and enigmatic Jason Covington. An early trip to the property for measurements and initial interpretations of the space brings a very unwelcome surprise… A surprise in the form of the very gorgeous, completely cocky, and totally infuriating brother of her client, Ryder Covington. Oh, and did I mention that he also gave her the most incredible night of her life before leaving without a word? The man that caused her current dry spell, and ruined her for any other?
Ryder Covington loves his job. As a professional snowboarder, his life is full of action and fun. When a broken leg sidelines him for the off-season, he goes back home to recover and rehabilitate in time for training. When his brother asks him to help him out with a new renovation project, he is more than happy to oblige. Things get even more interesting when he goes to check out the new property, and meets the new designer charged with transforming the property. It’s none other than Zoey Reynolds…the woman he hasn’t gotten out of his head since their night together. Unfortunately for him, his hasty departure after their one night together has caused a major chill in the air between them. Can Ryder thaw the ice around her heart?
Jennifer Blackwood has delivered a fun, sexy read with plenty of humor and lots of heart. I love the quick wit, and sharp comebacks that both Zoey and Ryder threw around throughout the book. Some of the situations that they found themselves in were so hilarious, I found myself laughing out loud! Zoey was a slightly uptight little thing, but reminded me of all the anxieties and quirks that we, as everyday people, deal with on a daily basis. She was so refreshingly real, it was nice to feel such a kinship with her character. And Ryder? Hell, he was every red blooded American woman’s idea of a dream man. Gorgeous, funny, sweet, confident…but not afraid to be vulnerable, and kind. Not to mention amazing in the sack. Ryder is the complete package, but he has his quirks as well. Just as real as Zoey, but also as dreamy as a favorite book boyfriend. The character development was well done, and on point. The plot and storyline were well thought out and well executed. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire story, though there were a couple of times the outcome of a situation made me think twice. The writing was excellent, and I found it very easy to lose myself in the story and forget all about time and space. Definitely the most fun I have had in recent days, and I so look forward to what Ms. Blackwood has in store for us next.
