An impossible demand…
Max Jernigan is ready to close the most important business deal of his life—all he has to do is agree to one request from Grayson Crowell: impregnate the mogul’s daughter.
No way can Max do this. He’s a decent guy. But he would love a child. He just doesn’t want a wife.
An impossible man…
C.C. Crowell gave up on dreams of a family after Mr. Worse-Than-Wrong broke her heart. Hiding behind spreadsheets, boring suits and an icy attitude, she’s more than a little suspicious when arrogant, handsome Max is suddenly chasing her. But she can’t deny their chemistry. Until she learns about the deal and plans to pay Max back in kind….
The Sweetest Deal is a story that combines business and pleasure when Max agrees to a deal that may cost him his job as well as his heart. Max Jernigan believes in his project and wants to see it developed but the only way it’s going to happen is if he agrees to Grayson’s terms.
CC Crowell wants more than anything to prove to her father that she can handle the job, especially after what happened two years ago. She is no longer the carefree girl she was; now she is all business and has sworn off men.
Both Max and CC have a lot to learn about themselves. They have both have suffered heartaches in the past that has drawn them closer. Max sees the vibrant, beautiful woman under CC’s stiff exterior and wants to bring it out. She is the first woman that he has enjoyed being with in a long time. She is smart and funny and everything he never knew he wanted in a woman.
The more time CC spends the Max the more beautiful and daring he makes her feel. She begins to see beneath his pretty boy image to the man underneath. She has sworn off men but Max passed her cookie test and makes her want things she thought were out of her reach.
The connection between Max and CC is there from the beginning. I loved seeing the characters grow and change before your very eyes. The story also has great secondary characters. I hope we see a future story between Roxie and Ryder they provided a lot of comic relief in this story. I loved the ending and was pulling for Max and CC to make it work from the beginning.
