Jack Lawson grew up poor and can’t forget it. He’s a huge success in the business world, but it won’t be enough until the image of “poor little Jack” is completely wiped away. When Jack runs into his old friend, Noah Mercier, he decides that Noah’s sister, an up-and-coming movie star, would be the perfect evidence of glamorous success. If Jack can win Hayley, it will be clear to everyone, including himself, that he has truly arrived.
The problem with Jack’s grand plan is that he’s more attracted to Noah. Jack’s never worried about the gender of his conquests, but Noah just isn’t flashy enough for Jack’s scheme to set the world on fire… unless Jack realizes he has practically no control over deciding who he wants—and even less choice in who he needs.
My View – Story:
This story was exactly like I predicted, yet it also was not. From the blurb it was easy to tell that this would be a story about a self centered and unlikable CEO who eventually falls in love and becomes more human. And that was almost exactly what happened here.
However, what I was not expecting was the thread that Jack knew his personalities wasn’t likable and part of him hated that fact. There were clues showing that he had gotten what he wanted, to be someone and to be recognized as important, but that it came with a cost he didn’t anticipate and didn’t really like. That there was a part of him that was just playing this role because it was expected.
I enjoyed this short tale. Jack was more complex than I had expected and I easily connected with him and his story. I enjoyed seeing his transformation and was glad that he got a bit of happy in the end.
My View – Narration:
This is my first experience with Derrick McClain’s narrations. I enjoyed listening to his voice. He portrayed the characters well and the emotion came through easily. I will gladly listen to more narrations from him in the future.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
