Love On My Mind by Tracey Livesay ~ Release Day & Review

Source:  Received an eBook copy from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Successful PR executive Chelsea Grant is one assignment away from making partner at her firm and nothing will stand in her way. Her big break? Turn a reclusive computer genius into a media darling in time for his new product launch. He may have been dubbed the “sexiest geek alive” but he has no patience for the press—and it shows. Piece of cake, right? Only problem is… his company doesn’t want him to know they hired her.

After a disastrous product launch two years ago, tech CEO Adam Bennett knows the success of his new device depends on the media’s support. When a twist of fate brings the beautiful PR specialist to his door, Adam hires Chelsea to help turn his image around. Their attraction is undeniable and the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to keep things professional.

But when Adam discovers Chelsea’s deception, will she risk everything for her career or is love the real thing on her mind?

Now Available from Avon Impulse!


This book captured my heart and the reason is Adam.  I love complex, rich characters that are real.  Adam is complex and he struggles with social cues.  Yes, he's brilliant but he doesn't do well in social settings.  Of course, if he wants a women in his bed, they understand pretty clearly.  And I totally fell for him.  He's focused and determined but he's vulnerable.  He's logical.  He's educated.  But he's also sexy and in need of help but he doesn't want it.  Adam just captured my heart. 

That help comes in the form of a women who gets social as well as Adam doesn't.  Driven and creative, Chelsea finds a way into Adams house and his mind.  Once there, they both can't really control where things go.   Chelsea battles her inner voice that tells her to come clean and tell the truth.  In the end, I was proud of her.  

Besides the strong characters, this book is a great story.  One that had me turning the pages desperate to know how and when the truth would come out.  But I was cheering for them.  Hoping and happy for them.  I loved that the root of Adam's issue was something many people don't understand.  I feel like this story sheds light on that.  I loved that Adam had supportive friends that stood by him.  I'm hoping they get their own story because both of them seem like they have one.  That shows how full even the secondary characters are.

Amazing characters, a great story that turns the pages and a HEA makes this one an excellent choice for an afternoon delight!
