Contemptuous CEO is full of sacrifices, secrets and second chances. I DEVOURED this book. The moment I started it I couldn’t put it down. I was completely sucked into this story and fell in love with the characters.
Twelve years ago, Xander graduated and started working for his uncle in New York. Leaving the love his life behind. He never forgot about her, she never forgot about him. They remained friends over the years. However, there was a secret between them. When that secret comes out will all be forgiven, or will it destroy everything?
I loved Xander and Maddie. They had amazing chemistry from the start, even after their relationship ended you could still feel the love between them. Xander isn’t the arrogant CEO I expected. He was caring, protective and still hard working. Maddie had made major sacrifices, but she has managed to do well for herself and her career.
There are also some fun visits from Hollis and Elodie throughout that I was loving!
This was a fast paced second chance romance and a MUST READ!

A Mesmerizing Emotional Love Story
From the Prologue to the Past my heart ached just a little more for Paisley with each and every word. I could feel her heartbreak, the defeat and the utter loss she was feeling. As I headed to the present with Paisley and Braxton my heart was falling apart for so many reasons. The tears were spilling and I wasn’t sure if I would recover from the turmoil my heart was suffering. In desperate times, rash decisions were made and I wasn’t sure if Braxton or Paisley were aware of what this might mean not only for their future but their hearts as they intertwined. The emotions that their story pulled from me at times was overwhelming and left me with tears at times that felt never ending.
As the light finally turned on in not only Braxton’s head but his heart, I was cheering him on, not only did I need this for them but I needed this to heal my own heart. Life is unpredictable and at times leaves us shattered and broken, however this beautiful love story shows that we can’t live in a world of what ifs, to be happy we have to grab each day and live it to the fullest. Braxton and Paisley’s story had me mesmerized from the start and even though I cried a river and felt every moment soul deep, it was a story that ultimately left me in a place of contentment and joy. When an authors words can make me experience the story almost like it was first hand, you know their story was worth every tear that you shed and every smile that you gained.
