Description: Once upon a time, I had everything: money, power, a multi million-dollar company, a loving family. Well, at least I thought I had everything. Then my parents died, and I found out my whole life was based on a lie. That’s pretty much the moment when I went numb. Told the world to f*** off and went on a bender of epic proportion, just to see how far I could fall before I hit rock-bottom.
Now I’m back and all I want in this world is my morning—okay, afternoon—coffee. Then one of my employees has the nerve to call me out for cutting the line at the coffeehouse at the company I own. Sure, I’m a little scruffier than usual, but come on, bitching out the CEO? Not a smart career move. Just who does this smart-mouthed ball-buster think she is? And more important, what do I have to do to get her number?
Holland O’Dell may be uptight, but I wouldn’t mind taking her back to my place and ripping off that business-casual blouse/skirt combo and burying myself in her curves. She pushes my buttons, but at least I’m feeling something. And whatever it is, I won’t stop until I get more.
Overall thoughts: I really enjoyed reading Mr. Big; as a reader and book blogger I have a thing for fictional angsty, brooding men. Although they can be real jerks, there is always a reason why they act the way they do. It might not be right or likable at first but I like to read about characters like that for some reason. Especially when there is redemption involved and usually 9/10 there is. I really loved the story between Holland and Oliver, two lost souls but connected with similar pasts under different circumstances.
Their chemistry was amazing and the will they or won’t they scenario wrecked me in every good way possible when I was reading Mr. Big. They had their problems within themselves and with each other but what I really loved and admired Holland and Oliver was how they helped one another grow. Mr. Big will probably make the list of my favorite standalone of 2017. Definitely a must read!
