Review: Black Tie Optional

For this review, I chose Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:

Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips - on the surface he’s pure perfection.

Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.

Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.

So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.

Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.

I loved this book.  Olivia loves her life and protecting animals from those who want to do them harm.  Cole is a powerful man, who is trying everything in his power to keep his life as it is.  Olivia meets with Cole every morning to fight her cause with him.  He does not back down.  Their chemistry is on fire from the beginning.  When they run into one another in Las Vegas, Cole makes her a deal she can not refuse.  He has to get married before he is 30 years old or he will lose everything dear to him.  Olivia is trying to save an endangered species.  Cole's grandmother is something else.  I love how Olivia stands up for Cole and herself.

This is book #1 of the Wild Wedding series.  I can not wait to read book #2.  This is my first book by this author.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
