Notice in Ann Marie Walker’s
new standalone romantic comedy, Black
comedy, Black Tie Optional, which New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst calls, “a fun, sexy romp that will keep every reader entertained!”
Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips – on the surface he’s pure perfection.
Ann Marie Walker, congratulations on this brilliant standalone! I truly enjoyed reading all about Cole and Olivia, two characters who are so different, yet equally interesting in their own ways. I was hooked on your book from the very beginning and made my own predictions as to what I thought would happen. I could easily relate to both and that made the characters even more lovable. Your story turned out to be one filled with humor, sexy moments, a spectacular setting and a cast of characters that are rom/com movie material.
A trip to Vegas turned into a marriage of convenience, sounds like fun? Sure, I’ve read other books with this same premise but, this one is a light hearted, fun read, the kind you want to finish in one sitting and discuss with your best friend. Cole and Olivia must make this unexpected marriage appear real, that is if Cole’s grandma has anything to do with it. There is this legal clause, well… and some bats. I don’t want to spoil it for you. I promise this story is going to make you laugh. The chemistry and banter between these two characters is awesome. I’m glad that Ann Marie decided to go with the romantic comedy genre. She is a natural and produced a fantastic story.
Black Tie Optional is a perfect Summer Beach read.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
