This was so fun to read! It was my first book by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and it won’t be my last.
Tailored for Trouble (Happy Pants #1) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
SHE WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program—helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She’d love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm.
HE WANTS TO BUY IT.
Bennett Wade is many things—arrogant, smug, brusque—but trusting isn’t one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there’s one thing Bennett can’t stand, it’s when things don’t go according to plan.
They are a match tailor-made for trouble.
This was such a sweet, entertaining story with a lot of emotion mixed it. I really enjoyed it!
Taylor and Bennett where like oil and water! They had a fun, bickering chemistry, full of animosity and verbal sparing. They had a lot of push and pull happening in their relationship and it was great getting to see more and more of them as they really opened up. I thought there was nice character development overall as we learn all about them. As much as I loved that verbal sparing, sometimes it got a bit drawn out because of that bickering (I kind of wanted to shake them both and tell them to wake up!), but it was such a good storyline and I loved the relationship that was building, that I kept right on reading. I honestly couldn't out it down because I wanted to see how it all played out.
Taylor cracked me up, she had some seriously funny internal monologue happening. I really enjoyed that. I liked Bennett but he was hard to read sometimes since he seemed to be so emotionally closed. He was arrogant, gruff and controlling but also really sweet, and caring. I just knew there was more to him and I kept wanting to know why he was the way he was. I loved all the emerging little details as things start to fall into place about his past. It was very emotional. There are several throughout the story actually, it was a much more emotional read that I thought it would be.
I thought the writing was really good, nice and descriptive although a little drawn out at times. I thought the author had a really good voice, it was my first time reading her and I totally enjoyed it and would definitely read her again. The characters, build, and storyline totally sold this for me making it a really great read!
