REVIEW – UNDER HER by Samantha Towle

SYNOPSIS

A steamy and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times best-selling author Samantha Towle…

I’m used to being in charge. In and out of the office.

So, when my parents go behind my back and hire a co-CEO to help me manage my family’s business, let’s just say, I don’t take it too well.

Especially not when the woman they’ve hired is the one girl who hated my guts in college. She thinks I’m an overprivileged, womanizing man-whore. I think she’s an uptight, stuck-up bitch.

And, now, she’s here, in my office, telling me how to run my company.

I don’t think so.

It doesn’t matter that she has legs that go on for days or that I keep imagining bending her over my desk and showing her just how bossy I can be.

I’ve worked my ass off and paid my dues to get to where I am, and she’s not taking it from me.

No freaking way.

Morgan Stickford is about to learn the hard way that Wilder Cross is the only boss around here.

4.5 All I Need Is Her Stars!

 

Wilder Cross has it all. He lives in a great place in Chicago, has wealth, is gorgeous, gets any woman he wants, & is about to take over the family business, Under Her Lingerie. His parents are retiring soon, & as an only child and the sole heir he’s set to take the reins, & claim his rightful place as CEO. He loves his job & has worked hard to get to where he’s at, so when his parents inform him they’ve hired a co-CEO to help him manage the business, he feels blindsided. They feel the male-female dynamic is one of the things that’s always made the company successful. They think he needs a woman’s perspective to help run the company. Not wanting to share, Wilder secretly plans to look for a way to get rid of his new partner, while pretending to go along with his parent’s wishes.

Wilder is shocked when he finds out his new co-CEO is Morgan Stickford, an uptight girl he knew in college. She hated him, but always intrigued him. She was always pretty, but now she’s all grown up & stunning. It’s been nine years since he last saw her, & he hopes she doesn’t still think the worst of him.

Morgan had a huge crush on Wilder back in college. He was an overprivileged player & a total man-whore. She hoped she could work with him & not have a reaction to him. She hated how she’d always wanted him.

 

 

-I’ve gotten really good at pretending. Pretending that I can’t stand Wilder Cross. Pretending that my heart doesn’t beat a little faster every time I see him.

-Why does the one woman who excites me this much have to be the one woman I can’t touch?

 

 

As Wilder & Morgan work together, they really enjoy each others company. She’s become all he can think about, & he’s obsessed with her. He wants her & feels tied up in knots since she came back into his life. He’s upset he can’t have the only woman he truly craves. When they finally give in to the passion between them they both quickly become addicted. Being together feels so natural, & soon she means everything to him.

I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun, flirty story about a guy who gets another chance with a woman from his past. He’s never settled down with one woman, but when he finds the one meant for him, he’s done for. As I was reading this book, I literally couldn’t put it down. It’s sexy, super hot, & has a beautiful love story. Another fabulous read by Samantha Towle.

 

 

-All of me is obsessed with her. My head and my heart. I’m crazy about her.

-Being with Morgan is like nothing I’ve ever felt before.

-For the first time in my life, I want something real. I want something with her.

-She’s become the center of my universe.

It’s like nothing will ever be enough with her. I’ll always want more. She’s become the center of my universe.

 

 

UNDER HER is a sexy ”Enemies to Lovers” romance written by the talented Samantha Towle. Over the years I’ve come to love many of her books and I find myself always anxiously awaiting her next novel. The story is told mainly in the Hero’s POV, but in the few chapters that take us back to the past, we get to hear the Heroine’s voice and it helps us understand where the animosity between them comes from.

Wilder Cross is a wealthy bachelor who is about to take on the role of CEO of his parent’s successful lingerie company called Under Her. He works hard and he plays hard. Wilder loves living the life of the eternal ladies man. He’s never been in a serious relationship and there hasn’t been a time where he was even tempted to make a commitment to one woman. The perfect bubble that he lives in is about to burst when his parents announce that they’ve hired someone to Co-CEO the company with him. It only gets worse when he finds out that his Co-CEO is none other than Morgan Stickford, the woman he went to Northwestern with who openly despised him.

Wilder was a typical horny frat boy back in the day and he unwittingly was also the cause of many a heartbreak suffered by poor Morgan. Thirteen years later it would seem that she hasn’t gotten over the past and the two butt heads whenever they are in the same room together. Even though she has become somewhat of a thorn in his side, Wilder has fallen in lust with Morgan. From the moment she walks into the boardroom Morgan has become Wilder’s obsession. She’s all that he can think about and he’s losing his game with the ladies because no other woman can get Morgan out of his mind. And the more time they spend together, Wilder realizes that he might just be attracted to Morgan for more than just her physical appearance. For the first time in his life he wants to spend more than one night with a woman and it’s nearly freaking Wilder out.

 

 

It took me a while to warm up to this story because I wasn’t crazy about Wilder. For almost the first half of the book, he seemed to be obsessed with his need to be “inside” of Morgan. I mean every other sentence he was describing how hard he was and it seemed to happen even if all Morgan did was breathe in his direction. But whenever we were brought back to their days at Northwestern and we get to experience the heartbreak that Morgan endured, I found myself wanting her to get the man she loved so much and hoped he would find out just how badly he had hurt her and would be able to make amends. When they finally give in to the passion that was building between them, well the story took off for me and I was unable to tear my eyes from my iPad. In no time at all, I was at the epilogue and wishing that the story could go on for just a little while longer.
