The billionaire’s business arrangement:
Jack Garrett enjoys biddable women — sharing the vineyard he’s inherited with his fiery ex-wife does not appeal. His agenda is clear: visit Brenna, make her a deal… and leave, immediately.
But one glimpse of Brenna’s sun-kissed skin has Jack’s rugged body recalling their fevered nights together…
Her fiery surrender!
As their red-hot passion erupts, ten years of ice-cold separation melt away. Now they’re back where it started all those years ago — in bed! Suddenly negotiations are looking much more pleasurable…
Kimberly Lang has written such a powerful and beautiful romance in Boardroom Rivals, Bedroom Fireworks!
Talk about conflict and a shared past which involved a short term marriage. Now ten years later Brenna Walsh is faced with not only loosing her beloved stepfather Max. She was also forced to see his son, her billionaire ex-husband Jack Garrett. However, they have a huge problem as Brenna and Jack now share the joint ownership of Amante Verano Cellars they recently inherited It’s been Brenna’s whole focus and life while Jack just wants to sell his share that his father Max left to them both. On top of that, the chemistry is still there for both of them, the fire, the passion and the sad memories of their failed marriage.
Talk about fireworks with an exclamation mark! Fireworks doesn’t even describe their arguments nor their desire for each other. It completely complications the situation every step of the way because Brenna wants the winery to be a huge success and she’s sure they can put Amante Verano on the map if she’s just given the chance. However, the winery means nothing to Jack, he doesn’t share her passion. His passion is for building luxury hotels and he didn’t want to waste his time in wine country, remembering how it was like with Brenna all of those years ago.
They constantly argued, remembered how much they had once loved each other, fought over the winery and what a money pit it was, fought over Jack selling or being a silent partner. It was weeks of up and down emotions and finally facing them in a most intimate way. They were both so different, Brenna was granola to Jack’s posh life style. Jack was extremely popular with the socialites where as Brenna was content to dig in the dirt and prune her vines. They were as different as night and day yet they still wanted each other. Their marriage had been based on “fight-truce-sex-fight” and neither of them wanted that again, and yet, they couldn’t seem to get past the past.
For them to come to terms with the past, so much happened during the ensuing weeks while trying not only to come to terms with their loss of Max, the winery and how Jack in the end, decided how to deal with Brenna. It became more when they fought about their break-up and why their marriage failed.
And then when I thought Brenna’s heart couldn’t break anymore, the worst thing happened, a fire. Now she couldn’t hide behind the winery, she was forced to think about why she and Jack failed and could she move forward? And then a wonderful thing happened when Brenna realized she didn’t want to be alone, she wanted to be with Jack. As for Jack where Brenna was concerned I just knew he would do something extraordinary, and he did because he knew how much she loved the winery. Did they get their second chance? Of course thanks to their love for each other and compromise!
Misunderstandings, passion and bedroom fireworks made Boardroom Rivals, Bedroom Fireworks an amazing romance giving this beautiful couple their happy ending thanks to USA Today Bestselling author Kimberly Lang.
