Review - Something About Lorelei by Sandi Lynn

Title: Something About Lorelei
Author: Sandi Lynn
Release Date: November 6, 2015

My name is Jack Sutton, CEO of Sutton Fashion Magazine and I have the world at my fingertips. A successful career, loads of money and beautiful women who were always at my beckoning call. My problem? I lived under the shadow of my mother who started the company over thirty years ago. Not to mention her being married and divorced six times, left a bad taste in my mouth as far as relationships were concerned. 

“Women to me were nothing but mere toys. They were meant to be played with for my own personal pleasure and when I was done playing, they’d get tossed to the side.” 

Then walked in Lorelei Flynn. She was beautiful, and so wrong for me. The problem? She was my personal assistant and she was closed off to say the least. Despite being the beautiful woman she was, I had an overwhelming need to find out what was underneath all that beauty. It was something I couldn’t explain. It was just something about Lorelei. 

My name is Lorelei Flynn and I was Jack Sutton’s fifteenth personal assistant in a little over a year. My boyfriend was killed seven years ago in a car accident. Before he died, he gave me a gift: my daughter Hope. My life did nothing but revolve around her. I didn’t date and I hadn’t had sex in seven years. Then Jack Sutton came into my life and he was as sexy as sin but he was nothing but a womanizer and my boss. The line was there the day I took the job and it was one that couldn’t be crossed. Or shouldn’t be crossed. But it was crossed and now the only world I’d known was suddenly changing and it scared the hell out of me.

I was left sighing and with a big ol’ smile on my face when I was done reading this emotionally beautiful story. 

Lorelei was left alone to raise her daughter, not because she wanted to be, but because of time and unforeseen occurrences. Despite that, she was resilient and had a positive attitude. Now, it was not about her but about her beautiful gift—her daughter, Hope. When Lorelei took on the job to be Jack Sutton's PA, she didn't realize what she was getting into or with who until it was too late. One thing she was sure of, though, was that Jack was a force to be reckoned with. 

Jack's instant attraction to Lorelei didn't sit well with him. In his puny mind he thought if he had her under him one time it would fill his desire for her but, like a bag of chips where you can't just have one and be satisfied, Jack Sutton knew he couldn't have Lorelei one time only! 

Jack's hot and cold attitude had me yelling at my tablet for Lorelei to move on and not get involved but it was to no avail. There was enough drama to add to the story but what I loved most was the emotional pull Jack and Lorelei had for each other. One thing Jack hates is secrets, and when he finds out Lorelei has been keeping some from him…well, that changes everything.

There are hurt feelings, misunderstanding as well as lots of Hot Sexy Time with a Hot Boss that had me squirming and fanning myself! Loved how this story flowed but hated that it had to end!
