Purchase: AmazonNora Bowman’s love life just imploded. A road trip—not running away!—leads her to San Francisco and possibly the most beautiful man she’s ever seen in real life. And Nora saw all of him. Literally. Which is awkward, because he’s her new client. On the plus side, she’s discovered a new kink for tattooed bad boys. Who knew?
Tech millionaire Gabe Sterling has everything—but the one thing his money can’t buy is happiness. When he hires the latest in a long line of interior designers to remodel his secret hideaway, he never expects to fall for the designer’s quirky assistant. Gabe should be focusing on Sterling Enterprises’ ground-breaking new project, but Nora is driving him to distraction.
Will he choose the job and level up from millionaire to billionaire, or will Gabe choose a life with love-shy Nora…if, that is, he can convince her to take a chance on him.
Technically Mine is a fun, sexy story about finding your home—even if you have to run away from it first.
5 of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this contemporary romantic comedy. From the very beginning until the very end I was hooked.
Nora, having recently had her relationship end very unexpectedly, decided a change of scene is needed. This lands her in San Francisco working as an assistant to her interior designer cousin. That job brings her face to face with Gabe. Gabe is undoubtedly the hottest guy Nora has ever seen, and she ends up seeing A LOT of him very early into their acquaintance. But he's a client and therefore off limits. To bad for her Gabe doesn't seem inclined to go along with that notion. Despite how inappropriate it would be for her to get involved with him, he is a big fan of being inappropriate.
Gabe was such an awesome leading man, I can't say enough about him. He's a totally different kind of alpha then what I'm used to and he takes intense to a whole new level. But the way he is when it comes to Nora was so endearing and I just loved him right away.
Nora was just fun. I liked the way she thought. I liked how old school she was about certain things. I loved her reactions to Gabe. All of it was just such a pleasure to read.
This story was very well told and has me interested in checking out other books by this author. But I loved the comedy and the slow build feel of this one. I highly recommend it.
