Like father, like daughter.
That’s what businessman Alex Trahern thinks about Isabel Harrison. If the prestigious headhunter thinks she can steal his top employee, just like her father stole his dad’s ideas, she’s dead wrong. Alex is always a man with a plan, and his plan is to get revenge on John Harrison through his daughter. But there’s no contingency plan for the impact Isabel’s sparkling green eyes and honey brown hair have on the decidedly non-business side of his brain…

If at first you don’t succeed, change the game.
After some relationship flameouts, Isabel’s decided to leave love out of it and approach her search for a husband like finding a suitable job candidate. And according to her list of requirements, Alex Trahern certainly has potential. He’s sexy. (Check.) Forceful and fascinating. (Check, check.) Also arrogant, obnoxious, and way too hot for her own good. (Erase. Start over.) Now, if only she could find out what he’s really after…

In a high-stakes game of love, attraction, and desire, two people playing for all the wrong reasons are about to discover how delicious it can be when plans go deliciously awry and love is all that matters.
She’s good at matching employees with employment opportunities. She’s not good at relationships. How to fix that? Make a list of potential qualities for a great mate. But then she meets the man of her dreams. Problem? He’s a business associate. When he says, Come Up and See Me Sometime, how’s a girl supposed to answer?

Lucy Monroe writes characters that the reader can identify with from page one. They aren’t perfect, which makes them easy to love. Come Up and See Me Sometime, is no exception. Her scenes are rich and draw the reader in. You want things to work out for these people. You grow along with them as he story progresses.

Alex is a great alpha hero. He knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to get it, until he sees Isabel. She’s his greatest challenge because she’s his match. She can go toe to toe with him and that scares him. It’s overwhelming to find that one who is your perfect compliment and then not to know what to do about it.

Ms. Monroe writes steamy love scenes that sizzle with passion. Even when they aren’t together, you know Alex and Isabel share strong feelings for each other. I never wanted the book to end.

If you want a sparkling novel with unforgettable characters, then Come Up and See Me Sometime is the book for you. I give this novel 4 ½ books.
