For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewellery empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants - but it's going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan's upper class accept her. The worst offender is her new neighbour, Oliver Cunningham - the grown son of the family Naomi's mother worked for as a housekeeper. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he's tormenting her in entirely different ways. Let this sexy battle-of-wills commence...


The cover of this, and potentially the title, made me think it was going to be a bit too much of a romance novel for my tastes, but actually I really quite liked it. There are some interesting characters, and most of them having to overcome some kind of challenges or childhood traumas to move on with their lives. I liked it and would actually be interested in the rest of the series.

Rating: 4 / 5
