“I’m the fixer your board hired to clean up your mess.”
“So you show up here, break into my house, and take a bath?”
Emily Stanton’s perfect life just became a disaster. She has a trust fund brother looking for a handout, a father who is more board member than dad, and a mother who thinks she should give up on this whole billionaire CEO thing and meet a man with a pre-nup and a yacht.
Oh, and then there’s that “misunderstanding” with law enforcement witnessed by Miami’s paparazzi. Now her billion-dollar deal is on the line, and there’s a naked man in her bathtub who claims he’s going to make all her problems disappear.
Charming—and happy to bend the rules when necessary—Derek Price has made a living polishing the tarnished images of the rich and famous. He’s never lost, and he never takes clients to bed. Until the dazzling Emily. Derek promised her a win and offered up a lifetime supply of orgasms as part of the deal. But if he can’t stop her enemies, he’ll end up losing much more than he bargained for.
Author Notes: An enemies-to-allies-to-lovers workplace romcom with a meet-nude, four lady billionaire BFFs, a hero whose many talents include styling hair and picking pockets, the best dang drag queen brunch in Miami, and a shameless romance novelist cameo.

"My client was a motherfucking genius, and if she kept smiling like that, I was going to have a problem not falling hard for her."
Truthfully, I had no clue was I was getting into when I decided to give this new-to-me author a chance. I'm so effing glad that I did. I floved this story HARD. How different it was to read about female billionaires for a change. How awesome those females are. I've got a serious girl crush. And not for one of the quirky, hilarious billionaires. Nope, it's Jane that won me over, she's badass.
Emily is a workaholic to the extreme. That's how she built her empire and she's determined to keep it in spite of a scandalous mistake that has put it at risk. She tries to keep her ducks in a row at all times. Living up to everyone's expectations and keeping her reputation pristine is important to her. When the media jumps to the wrong conclusion and blasts her the fallout endangers her company.
The very last thing she expects to find when she gets home after the worst day ever is a sexy, naked man in her bathtub. While I personally consider that as a bad day getting better, that's not quite how she saw it. With her life already out of control, he was just one more thing to add to her stress, especially when she learns why he's there. Let me tell you, that's a scene that I will not be forgetting soon. I was laughing out loud and you could not have pried my Kindle out of my hands at that point.
Once you start reading and learn about Bluewater and its residents you are going to be as addicted as I am. The Price of Scandal might have started out as too high, but I'd be tempted to create some of my own for a delicious 'fixer' of my own. I can't wait to see why kind of trouble the other women get into in the future installments. The line forms here...
