My Review

What a great read!!

In this first book of the new series Vested Interest by Melanie Moreland, we are introduced to handsome Bentley.  Bentley is a creature of habit.  He is an introvert of sorts.  His character is described as cold and calculating.  But he is a successful business man with his two best friends as his partners.  Bentley’s business is in real estate and he is on top of his game.  But someone has been outbidding him on some property and that is interfering with his plans on his latest project.

One day Bent goes our for coffee tripping over a rucksack and meeting the most amazing and beautiful Emmy.  She is smart, funny and a spitfire, and Bentley wants to know more.  He has never felt the need to get to know someone like this before.  He finds his self looking to find ways to bump into her.  She is different.

As he develops his relationship with her, his business and his life are placed in jeopardy.  When things get dicey and Emmy is put into danger, Bentley must keep his cool or risk the only person he has ever truly let in.

This story was amazing and had me guessing till the end.  Granted my who done guess was spot on.  Melanie put in enough clues along the way, that is was easy to figure it out.  She has a wonderful story line that holds your attention.  Thrills and chills with a dose of hot steamy alpha male.

I really enjoyed the characters.  The were all wonderful and Melanie really started building her world and characters nicely in this book.  She even gives you bits and pieces into each of  the characters and you can imagine how things will continue into the next books, leaving her readers with the want to continue the journey with her.

I suggest you pick up your copy today and enjoy this book, you won’t regret it.  Especially those hot steamy scenes.  They will curl those toes and make  you beg for more.  Oh Bentley!!!!

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
