Review: Don't Say No by Naomi Bellina


Don’t Say No

BLURB:

Mixing business with pleasure has never been so much fun.

Amber’s life sucks. Her ex got her thrown out of college, then fired from her job. When she’s hired for a mystery shopping assignment, she hopes this is exactly what she needs to kick-start her life and get her back on track.

Jaeger is all business when he hires Amber to check out the spa he’s purchasing. If she can help him prove that the venture will be a success, then he can build his own future, not the one his family has mapped out for him. Becoming attracted to his sexy spy isn’t part of the plan.

Amber can’t see how she fits into Jaeger’s world, and he’s too uptight to ever fit into hers. Circumstances bring them together, in bed and out, but when a secret from his upper-class life is revealed, Amber must decide if she can trust him. Or is her life going down in flames all over again?

My review:


The beginning is really exciting: Amber's ex-boyfriend, Randy, is presented at the cafe where she works and is fired. She is furious and throws everything, destroying almost local. Jaeger comes to her rescue. He offers to pay damages if she is summarized but the manager does not want: the excuse that it was expected to kick her, could not see her. Jaeger offers her a job at Wilson Enterprises, his company, or rather of his family. He's trying to make the perfect Bella Sun, a spa. She should do a mystery shopping assignment: she has to pretend a customer to control the quality of staff. After a while hesitancy she accepts. Getting paid to have a massage or a manicure you can not refuse. After the first day she had the brilliant idea to get hired as a laundry lady: it is the best way to spy on employees of the spa. Jaeger is increasingly fascinated by Amber but wants to keep the relationship on a professional level, because she sees too involved with ex-boyfriend. Will he do it?
Amber is a sunny person, always in a good humor and with a effervescent personality. She immediately caught the attention of Jaeger. She lives with her mother who has never recovered from the death of her husband and Amber is determined not to go the same way. She's persecuted by former boyfriend Randy: because of a stupid joke were expelled from school attending and she hates him for that. But when they were together they traveled for two years and they loved it. Randy knows her very well, knows what her weaknesses and exploit them. 
Jaeger is a nice guy, sweet and intelligent, who wants to prove to his family, especially the older brother, of his professional capabilities. His idea is to succeed otherwise he expects a small office in the cold Chicago.
It 's a quick and engaging story, at times very funny.

EXCERPT:

Her phone rang, and she moaned. What the hell was the matter with that man?

“What? I'm tired. Leave me alone.”

“Just talk to me for a minute. What did you find out?” he asked.

“I found out doing laundry all day sucks and makes you want to come home and lie on your bed in your underwear. Oh, something else startling. Nobody likes to work for a living. Ha-ha!”

There was a moment of silence.

“Are you okay?” Jaeger asked.

She sighed. “I'm fine, just really tired. The good news—no one talked too much trash about the spa, but they don't like Carla and they're not really happy. Not having a lot of fun at work.”

“That's why they call it work. It's not supposed to be fun.”

“It could be. It should be. Why not? I bet the clients would enjoy their visits more if the spa girls were happier. The employees would get bigger tips, which would encourage them to work harder. Everyone's just kind of doing their job, not putting any love into it, you know?”

Jaeger laughed softly, a warm, sexy sound that slid through her senses like water flowing in a stream. A pang of desire shot through her, and her nipples tightened.

“So that's what they should be doing, putting love into the job?”

“Yeah, they should. Are you making fun of me?”

“No, not at all. In fact, I kind of like that expression.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I love spas! Even as an employee at several, I've always enjoyed the relaxing, pampering atmosphere in a place that's designed to be all about feeling good. This book is a work of fiction and most of the craziness that went on at Bella Sun doesn't really happen at spas. Mostly. I like to think there's always a romance or two going on behind the scenes. I've also been a mystery shopper, though I never received spa treatments on any of my assignments. Some girls have all the luck!

I hope this book encouraged you to not only search for your own true love, but to follow your dreams, no matter how many setbacks you encounter.
