A small town romance sent against the romance of the beautiful Dandenong mountains about loss, lies, and the courage to live true.
Forget the whole billionaire tycoon thing: Kate Moore is a billionaire’s daughter, and she knows first-hand that they’re not all romance novel worthy. Her father is brilliant, inflexible, and brutal – and nothing she’s ever done has been good enough for him. Her one chance to take over the massive Moore’s Hotel Corporation is restoring the run-down Burnham Beeches in beautiful Sassafras to its former glory. To that end, she hires David Wright, a talented landscaper with an unparalleled eye for beauty and an unparalleled talent for distracting her from her goal.
David really needs this job. He needs the contract, the Moore’s name on his portfolio, and the money to pay for his ailing father’s health. Everything he’s worked for is now within his grasp, and he’s going to reach for it with both hands. What he doesn’t need is the diversion, or the temptation, presented by his new boss.
Neither David nor Kate are free to follow their own desires, but they’re powerless to fight their growing attraction. But they come from very different places; perceptions will have to crash, misconceptions will have to collapse, and they will have to face their own personal challenges before they find their space to meet in the middle.
Take Me As I Am by Charmaine Ross
Take Me As I Am is a story about a hotel heiress trying to make a name for herself by renovating the Burnham Beeches hotel when her plans get side tracked by the chemistry between herself and David Wright. Her father, the corporate leader, is a heartless tyrant who rules by intimidation.
This story was an Okay read for me. The over plot was thought out but I felt no real connection, as if you are a casual observer and not a participant.
I received this ARC copy of Take Me As I Am from Escape Publishing in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Feb. 25, 2016.
