Real estate tycoon Nathaniel Montgomery is one deal away from making his first billion and fulfilling a promise to his dying father. Nothing will stop himfrom tearing down the decrepit St. Agnes hospital and erecting posh condos in its place. Not even the crystal-wearing, health food store owner whose publicity stunt lands him in the hospital.
After her brush with death five years ago, child prodigy Addie Collins learned what’s truly important—health, happiness, and the two-hundred-year-old rose garden at St. Agnes. To make amends for the accident, she agrees to pose as Nathaniel’s girlfriend at his eccentric grandmother’s birthday party.
But Addie has an ulterior motive. To repay her debt to the universe, she must show him there’s more to life than making money. Nathaniel hates to lose, but as she breaks through his defenses, losing himself in Addie’s arms might be exactly what this tycoon needs
Take one uptight workaholic hero in Nate add one quirky sassy cancer surviving heroine in Addie and what we end up with is an entertainingly sexy read.
Addie and her rose garden are what stand in Nate’s way of achieving his place on Billionaire row, a goal he mapped out at 18; having battled and survived cancer Addie knows that there is more to life that work, work, work; When Nate saves Addie from an unforeseen accident Addie decides to ‘Play it Forward’ by saving Nate from himself and Taming the Tycoon in the process.
I love the ‘Play it Forward’ concept Amy choose to run with in this book, I think it works well given the characters and the storyline.
I will admit to being a huge fan of Amy’s work, to me she can do no wrong; her characters are always multidimensional and her stories entice you in from the very beginning.
Taming The Tycoon is a heck of a sexy read, funny yet poignant, one you definitely want to read this summer.
