I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Millionaire CFO Jordan Fawkes is a jerk. He is a love and leave them kind guy. His past has made him this way and he never looks back. During one night at Comic-Con he hooks up with an intern. He knows its wrong, but he wants her. She will have no idea who he is. But then there’s a problem. A big one. A certain tape with an intern begins to circle the internet. And that intern? April Weiss becomes his assistant. She just has no idea that Jordan also plays a role in that video.
This was so much more than the usual boss and intern story. It does not follow the typical storyline. Jordan and April had such a strong connection. It is not instant. It develops over time. Watching them fall effortlessly for each other was quite entertaining. We learn that under that hardened exterior, Jordan is quite funny and charming. And can we talk about devastatingly handsome he is? (Sorry Adam!). He and April are quite the match. But, both have walls around their hearts to protect themselves. What made it interesting is that they had very different reasons. April never felt good enough. That she never deserves the benefit of the doubt. And Jordan? His heart was broken into pieces and never have been pieced back together. But April made those shattered pieces not ache as much. And Jordan? He made April see that she is worthy of so much more. Maybe even worthy of being loved.
“I never changed my mind, April. You changed my heart.”
And Jordan changed my heart as well. Sigh. What I love most about this series and this author is that it doesn’t follow the rules. She breaks them and makes up her own rules. The character development is out of this world. She allows you to truly get to know her characters as they are fun, quirky, nerdy, and just so well rounded. The story line is always engaging and you easily get lost. For The Win was no different. I found it very hard to put down this book.
For The Win is a brilliant addition to this series. Jordan and April’s banter, their journey to love, and the rest of the characters are a true testament to the author’s talent in writing a captivating and engaging story about love and finding it in places least expected. I am so excited about what’s to come in this series. We get Liam’s story? I. Cannot. Wait.
