I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The first in a brand new contemporary romance series starring the men and women who are determined to keep the billion-dollar denim dynasty, Riley O’Brien & Co, on top, but aren’t about to let success stand in the way of love…
Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O’Brien & Co., it’s a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn’t quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O’Brien. She’s doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she’s working on behind his back…
Quinn’s not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn’t wise, but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he’s taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn’t know he’s risking a lot more than his heart.
Growing up in a small town, Amelia Winger had big dreams of becoming a successful designer but her lack of a formal education has always been a barrier until she gets the opportunity to design accessories for the famous denim brand, Riley O’Brien & Co. However, she is not prepared for Quinn O’Brien, the sexy CEO and the attraction between them. She is determined to achieve her dreams and despite her fight to keep things professional, the attraction between them is too hard to resist.
I loved everything about this book! The characters, the romance between Amelia and Quinn, the family dynamics between Quinn and his siblings, the family history, everything! Amelia is smart, intuitive about fashion and very independent. Quinn on the other hand is a complex man, torn between the weight of his heritage and his duty to uphold and improve what his ancestors built. Quinn has devoted his life to Riley O’Brien and Co. until Amelia enters the picture and now he finds his attention divided between the company and his desire for home and hearth.
Sometimes, I find myself liking one character more than the other but in this case, I actually liked both Quinn and Amelia. Amelia is a mix of sweet and confident with a dash of insecure while Quinn is a delicious and charming hunk of man! I love the gradual build-up of both the romance (which is very sweet, by the way) and the sexual tension between Amelia and Quinn. I love the mix of sweet and spicy in their relationship. The history of the Riley O’Brien & Co brand is a very central part of this story and I love that it was well-researched but not overdone. Family is also at the core of Quinn and Amelia’s story. Quinn has a wonderful family, which is something Amelia, whose only family is her best friend, has always wanted.
I’m very vocal about not liking a lot of angst in my books and I love that there was very little of that in this book. Issues were quickly resolved and both Amelia and Quinn were very mature and worked to make their relationship successful.
All the Right Places is a slam-dunk start to a series and Jenna Sutton has just become one of my favorite authors. For a first book in a series, All the Right Places does not suffer from information overload. In fact, even the hints of the upcoming romances of the other siblings are so subtle that you could blink and miss them!
