Jen’s Review: Market for Love by Jamaica Layne

Market for Love (Cheek)Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:

Miranda Johanson has had a very bad day. The straight-laced uber-conservative stock-market analyst has lost eight million dollars of her clients’ money. If that weren’t enough, she also just had wild, no-holds-barred sex with a complete stranger on her coffee break … And that complete stranger turned out to be her new boss.

Hot sex, interesting characters, unique plot. I found it to be a pretty quick read and engaging enough for me to not want to put it down until I was done. My only issue with the book is that it’s marketed as an erotic romance. It’s definitely erotic, but I felt the romance part was a little lacking. Miranda and her stranger, Max, meet in the first chapter and by the end of the 250 pages they’re in love. They have obstacles aplenty to overcome as they get to that point… but I never really felt that “ah-ha, we’re in love” moment in the story, which is what really makes or breaks a book for me. But if you look past the romance aspect, Jamaica Layne as a pretty solid story in Market for Love.
