From the New York Times bestselling author of Keeping It Hot comes the continuation of the sexy and humorous Breakfast in Bed series featuring handsome hotel moguls.
When Asher Jackson, the playboy co-owner of the Oceanix Hotel Chain, meets Dana Anders, manager of the gourmet coffee shop within the Oceanix Resort, he longs to strike up a good rapport with her. But to his surprise, his typical charm immediately fails him and he can’t help but provoke her with sarcastic remarks at every turn.
Even though Dana can give as good as she gets, she’s confused by Asher’s hostility toward her–especially when she harbors a secret attraction toward him. When she finds herself with unexpected bills to pay, Dana strikes up a deal. For a reasonable fee, the financially strapped Dana will pose as Asher’s girlfriend to drive away bitter women who are making his life miserable. Asher hasn’t engaged in a serious relationship since his heart was broken five years previously, so he thinks playing husband to a fake wife won’t be a problem. But as the relationship continues he’s no longer quite so certain. And as the line between false animosity and real attraction becomes blurred, Dana begins to realize that the one thing she wants is what she’s pretending to already have.
Most of the romance books are predictable, sadly this is one of them. However, it’s the progress that makes this book interesting. I love the plot line how they could not see from eye to eye at first, to the pretending games, to the real thing. It was a page turner for me. I finished in less than a day!
I did not know Room For Two is actually the second book from a series called Breakfast in Bed until the excerpt at the end of the book. As you can see, you can totally read this book as a standalone. The first book, Keeping It Hot, is about her best friend/boss, Zoe, and his brother, Dylan. If you are interested in the first book, I do highly recommend reading it before the second one. I pretty sure there is going to be a third book.
