*****THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE*****
Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.
Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.
But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?
Picture Perfect is book 2 in the Limelight series. After reading Elisabeth Grace’s first book in this series, Rumor Has It (twice) I knew that this would be just as good.
First let me just tell you a bit about Skye Summers. Growing up with her father being a politician, Skye always had to look the part, play the part of the good daughter; which she is. She’s beautiful, and smart and knows how to work a room when in the company of her father’s peers. Now, landing her first job after college at an Entertainment PR firm she is working as a PA for Landon Steele at Steele and Associates.
Just recently coming off of a breakup with the scum of the earth, Vic, she is ready to start a new. She can’t wait to meet this new boss of hers….NOT….Yeah surprise surprise…When your boss turns out to be your weekend hook up at a nightclub!! HOLLA!! Landon Steele, the HOTTIE from the club who sucked face with Skye!! God that was some make out session.
Imagine to your surprise, that hottie who was squeezing your nipples in the hallway of a nightclub is NOW your boss??? Hells to the NO!! Especially when you have a boss like Landon Steele.
Landon is this gorgeous, smart, successful businessman with his own PR firm and he’s very determined to make sure that having Skye as his assistant will NOT screw around with his ability to do business without a hard on 24/7. These two try and make a go of it; the whole professional boss/assistant relationship. But when there is real chemistry you can’t fight it. And that’s one thing I loved about these two; their chemistry.
“Life would be much simpler if I wasn’t attracted to her. Someone needed to tell my dick that because it was semi-erect pretty much any time she was within view.”
Haha! Yeah pretty hard to function at work. But there is so much more that will keep these two apart. And that’s Skye’s ex boyfriend. He’s done a number on her, and Landon was there to see it all go down first hand. He has this need to protect her which I love. It’s endearing and so fucking hot.
“You have this thing about you, this sparkle in your eyes that draws people in. Its just your natural charisma…a vibrancy that you lose when you talk about him. It’s like there’s no life in your eyes. Like you’re no longer…you.”
God, he’s so attentive to her needs and knows just what is really going on in her head. Because Vic, is dangerous.
But Landon does a damn good job of keeping her interest spiked. He wants to know everything about her, and spends the time to find out; mind, body and soul. Especially her body. OH God, Landon is down right sexy, and his mouth is dirty…the things he says and does to her.
Landon pulled his fingers from me. I looked down to him and saw as he rubbed them on the tip of his erection so that it glistened with my juices.
“Lick it off, baby. See how sweet you taste.”
Seriously, this book is jam packed with insanely hot sex. I lost count of the places they bang..OH, and they bang!! I swear I want these two together in the worst way possible.
But of course this is where the Angst comes into play, and we all know I can’t handle the damn angst. Thanks Elisabeth..But I had one of those fuck this shit, I have to stop reading a minute because now I am pissed off, type moments.
Skye is faced with some serious decisions she needs to make with respect to Landon, or keeping Landon. My heart was breaking at certian points. I so felt all the emotions that Skye was feeling….That Landon was feeling…
” I was going to have to walk away from the man who taught me the true meaning of love. And to do so successfully, I was going to have to make him believe I wanted to do it, breaking both of our hearts in the process.
AND..just when you think shit can’t get any worse for Skye…Vic her douchebag ex-boyfriend strikes again…and makes matters worse…I swear my anxiety level is way high at this point…Seriously ready to punch my kindle and certain people in it!!!
This book had me going all over the place with emotions. Skye made me sad…But Landon…He’s so hurt….my friggin heart was breaking in pieces…When does that heart squeezing pain go away Elisabeth???
“What about us?” I almost whispered.
He broke eye contact. “There is no us. That was your doing. I don’t know if we can go back to where we were.”
This story is jam packed with sexual chemistry, an amazing, loving connection between two people who are torn apart by lies and misunderstandings. Can Landon forgive Skye for her lying, and not trusting him? Can they get back to what they had? So much is at stake; Landon’s company, Skye’s fathers’ Senate race and the need to keep up appearance.
Does appearance really matter that much, or is Skye willing to give that all up for love?
I say, read and find out! You do not want to miss this explosive love story between Landon and Skye.
