Battle of the Sexes by Adriana Locke


Battle of the Sexes by Adriana Locke

Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

For real this time.

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company.

The one to keep control of his heart.

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.

If you guys follow my blog at all, you already know that Adriana Locke is one of my all-time favorites. She joins just a few others that I really fangirl over and just adore to the ends of the universe. Then recently she announced that she was joining forces with Kendall Ryan and a slew of other amazing authors for the “Imperfect Love Kindle World”.

I’ve long decided that novellas are the crack-cocaine of the book world. I challenge you to read just one and not be hooked. Well, “Battle of the Sexes” is no different. My only honest “bad” thing about this book is that I loved this couple so hard that I wanted more of them. That’s really the only negative for me.

Amity and Carver go way back, like way back to their middle school days. I don’t know if the author crawled into my head, but I related to Amity on such an intense level. One could probably use the caterpillar turning into a butterfly analogy, but I think its more accurate to say that Amity just grew into herself. It reminds me of when you grow up in a small town and maybe you feel like the odd egg, but then you go to somewhere larger, and you realize you aren’t weird and you find others who are like yourself.

While I loved Amity, I also couldn’t help but adore Carver. There is one scene that stands out to me. Obviously, he’s already a pretty wealthy and successful guy (I mean, based on the synopsis, you already know that). But then we start to see more of Carver and you realize that he is does pay attention and is a thoughtful and caring guy.

I know for a fact that I will end up re-reading this story. I had total instalove for these two and I can’t wait to check out the rest of the Imperfect Love Kindle World because if its anything like this story, I know I will end up loving them all.
