*REVIEW* The Bargain By Christine S. Feldman
Tomboy Shannon Mahoney has always been a lot more comfortable with power tools than high heels or lipstick, and she wishes she could reinvent herself and finally tell her perfect boss, Drew Kingston, she has had a crush on him since high school. But she is just as tongue-tied and awkward around him now as she ever was, and long-familiar patterns are hard things from which to break free…
Ladies’ man Michael is a former bad boy looking for redemption. He is desperate to atone for past mistakes that he made with his family, but younger brother Drew has cut him out of his life and refuses to even speak to him. Which means Michael needs help getting to Drew.
And so he approaches Shannon with a proposition: If she will get Drew to agree to hear him out, Michael will mentor Shannon in how to win his brother’s heart. Suspicious of Michael’s motives, Shannon initially enters into the bargain just to make sure Michael isn’t actually in town to cause trouble for Drew, but the two unlikely allies are surprised to discover they enjoy each other’s company far more than either expected.
Shannon starts to realize that maybe love isn’t about reinventing yourself after all. It’s about finding your perfect match.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Bargain.It was one of those books where you can actually say,"Hey,that Shannon..She was could have been me!" The Bargain is about Shannon who does not dress up and dresses for comfort.She has had a crush on one man,Drew for 10 years,since high school,but is to shy to say anything.Michael,Drew's brother comes to town and they make a deal.She helps him and he will help her get Drew.Well we all know what happens with those kind of deals right?I adored reading about Shannon coming out of her shell.My Absolute favorite part was the scene at the Auction between her and Michael.Loved it.Go Michael.
I was literally glued to my kindle reading The Bargain.I had to find out what was going to happen next.The writing was smooth and flowed extremely well.I loved that there was an Epilogue as well.Im totally a Epilogue kind of girl.This is a sweet romance,meaning no sexual encounters.I know what your thinking..GASP.It didn't need it.It was perfect.The chemistry between the Two (Yes Im not saying which two!!!) Is sizzling.I loved this book and cannot wait to read more By Christine.Job Well Done Christine!
