Great storyI brought this book a few years ago and every so often I take it out of my library to read again The characters are very dimensional as real humans are This story touches on perceived notions people have about beauty and race The story was delightful thought provoking and the minor characters really made this a great read However i was hoping for a follow up story about the best friend and the lawyer and private investigator I must admit it, I got so excited when I discovered that fairly recent Shara Azod book I was so elated in fact that I did not fully read the synopsis and that was my downfall lolI do not and cannot tolerate adultery in any way shape or form in my romance books That itself marred the story from the beginning and left a very bitter taste in my mouth as I was reading.Johari the self made owner of a natural cosmetic brand Unfortunately, being hard on her luck she has to resort to selling her company in order to resolve her financial woes Enters Rald Volmer of Sch ne Haut who is willing to save her business and allows her have full control of Sparkling Gem But is he as altruistic as he seems Behind the affable surface lies a calculating man whose only intent is to seduce Johari in order to force his equally cold an calculating but also racist wife to file for a divorce.Herein lies the problem for me How can such as cold, calculating and strong character resort to such petty measure For all his alpha maleness, and take charge attitude, he is unable to confront a woman and ask for a divorce Money was obviously not an issue for him soreally why be such a coward Secondly, no matter how Rald s marriage is described as cold and loveless, it is nonetheless a marriage Therefore, his attempts at seducing Johari and of course the subsequent illicit relationship had me raising an eyebrow Not to mention that the wife was made to be a complete psychopath, I feel to justify the affair pfft Yes, both characters had explosive chemistry, yes the drama was at an all time highbut I could never forget the fact that Rald was married I guess that makes for flawed characters, but it s just a flaw that I could not tolerate.I kept reading still, because I had brought the book and I kinda like Johari Rald, for all his alphaness seem a bit cold unless he was with Johari and I was or less with him until he view spoiler purposefully impregnated the heroine What a D Bag hide spoiler #DOWNLOAD õ Beautiful Skin Ø Johari Clayborn Has Given Everything She Has To Building Her Own Cosmetics Company, Sparkling Gem But It Isn T Enough The Company S Going Under, And Johari Sees No Way Out Of Her Current Predicament Than To Sell The Company To Sch Ne Haut, The Beauty Juggernaut Owned By The Vollmer Family Rald Vollmer Wants Nothing Than To Be Rid Of His Wife, Helga On Paper, She Looks Like The Perfect Foil For His Up And Coming Business Persona, But In Reality She S Nothing Short Of Psychotic Sparkling Gem, And The Woman Who Created It, Presents Him With The Perfect Chance To Break Free Of His Family S Influence It S Just A Business Arrangement, He Tells Himself, Carefully Calculated To Give Him What He Wants But The Better He Gets To Know Johari, The Less He S Able To Stay Emotionally Aloof, And What Began As A Calculated Plan Rapidly Turns Into Something Much, Much Personal Good quick readI like this book,it was a nice way to spend a Sunday evening Johari Rald where to different people from different worlds who ended up finding love with one another It was a very unique story indeed Rald needed an out to get away from his sociopathic wife w o having to give her half of his family company,he put a plan in place to buy a struggling company owned by Johari and seduce her His plan to use her to get away from his crazy wife goes up in smoke when he falls in love with her Add in his racist father,his very smart protective mother,her best friend her ex husband to the mix and you have a recipe for disaster for these two.Not bad,it had all the elements,hot alpha male,strong female presence,super hot sex,and plenty of drama I liked how the story flowed and I love a little drama in my books but I have say the one thing that bothered me was how it was repeated that Johari had mortals would never have sex with her ex b c he was married however,she had sex with Rald pretty fast and continue to do so unprotected knowing he was married That to me did not seem like something she would do That aside the book was pretty good,few typos but still I liked it. OMG THIS BOOK WAS SOOO GOOOD I LOVED IT I found the book on her website cheaper than on If you want a good book pick this book up and read it This is the first book by this author that I have read, but I will read some by hers in the future. PleaseSoooo I m trying to figure out why all the five stars Rald was way too alpha male for my tastes He came off as a arrogant bastard to me I wanted to say dude Your a billionaire, you mean to to tell me that you don t have the resources to figure out how to get rid of your wife If he knew she was batshht cray cray.why not just expose her pass to the press That probably would have been enough to push her over the edge But no.he basically ruined Johari s business because he needed her for his nefarious intentions And I m sorry but where was the chemistry Every time they had sex it seemed as if Rald was using it as a manipulative toolalways in the heat of the moment he makes her promise him somethingthat just ruined the scene for me And every time they had an argument it was resolved with sex.when she wanted to go to the gynecologist to get her shotwhat does he dobecause HE wanted a kidhe keeps her in bed with sex for two days to ensure that happensSmhJohari was a weakling after finding everything out that he did allegedly in the name of love she forgave him And his racist VERY racist parents Especially his dadI mean once she had his kid.that made her a little tolerable..i don t guysI just don t like super manipulative alpha males Ugh.just..Ugh. I downloaded a sample of this before deciding to purchase, believing the writing was solid The writing for the most part was good There was some copy editing issues, but besides that there weren t too many grammatical mistakes I guess for 300 odd pages I expected There was way too much telling and not enough showing There wasn t enough dialogue between Rald and Johari to make me believe they were madly in love with one another Madly in lust Yes Love No Their scenes just really boiled down to adulterous sex Can t you tell I m swooning Things kicked off with their initial meeting where Rald had plans to buy Johari s cosmetics company as a way to diversify his family s business Johari saw the buy out for what it was taking something that was created for women of color, watering down the formula so that it becomes useless before re branding it for white consumers So that part really drew my interest, however, Rald s plan wasn t just to dismantle what Johari had built, but to also seduce her in order to drive his sociopathic wife out of his life without having to cough up half of his fortune to do so Rald, of course, upon meeting Johari and being taken with her beauty didn t exactly nix his initial plan to use her, but he surprisingly fell for her in the process I can t really say I ever came to like Johari As her best friend Gemma said, she s the kind of person who would cut off their nose to spite their face She didn t want to accept help from A N Y B O D Y It was infuriating Not wanting her ex husband to bail her out considering he remarried, I could understand that, but she didn t even want to accept alimony upon their divorce Who doesn t accept spousal support when there s been no pre nup It also might have helped her keep her head above water financially until things turned around Anyways, Johari made a lot of choices that did not sway me to like her Rald, I couldn t like him He was too manipulative and also naive to believe that he had everything under control, was several steps ahead of his conniving wife Sorry for the spoiler, but the fact he also deliberately got Johari pregnant without her consent, again just hammered in the nails to his coffin for me Rald and Johari together, I wasn t rooting for them to get the HEA He used her, plain and simple and put her life in real danger knowing how murderous his wife was I can t overlook that, clasp my hands together and sigh wistfully that those two robots managed to tap into real human feelings when around each other At one point I started rooting for Johari and her ex Eli who really had her back during the negotiations of the merger, to reconcile, but nah She was stuck on Rald, and honestly Eli deserved better The only characters I walked away enjoying where Gemma, Eli, and Aine Rald s mother though I did give her the stink eye until she checked her attitude about race Overall this book was okay If it had given me character development I could have enjoyed it much. I have read many books by this author which I have enjoyed I have had this one on my kindle for a while and I have only just now got around to reading it.This is Johari and Rald s story Rald is married in name only and he wants to be free of his loveless marriage He sees an opportunity involving Johari in his personal life but does not realises the consequences that this action will have on everyone s lives I enjoyed the story, it had a few twists and turns and kept me fully engaged.A good read LOVED ITIn one glance, this book was like another cliche interracial romance book But when you dived deep, you ll know that this deserved 5 stars, at least from me.Loved how it engaged me from the very first page. Don t mess with a momma bear s cub Aine Vollmer, Rald s mother was not to be triffled with Even Barrett Vollmer, her husband, knew when to keep his mouth closed Even Rald s crazy soulless psychopathic beotch of a wife found out she bit off than she could handle.The plan to use Johari Clayborn was selfish on Rald Vollmer s part He did not consider her feelings in the matter and he definitely did not consider that he would fall head over heels in love with her and she with him He also did not figure that his mother would have his back and solve his problem better than he ever could.I just loved this well plotted out tale by Shara Azod It was full of drama, suspense and mystery that kept me turning page after page I could not put my Kindle down until I finished this book This intriguing story was about a young man married to a heartless harpy in a loveless marriage and his determination to end that marriage with his life and family company intact It also showed a mother s strength and wisdom to do what was necessary to do right by her child even if it meant changing long held beliefs All she wanted was for her only child to be happy and loved by the perfect woman by his side The chemistry between Johari and Rald was just electric I loved them as a couple and was glad to read that they got their HEA I can also see a future book being written about Jo s best friend Gemma and Karl Rahn, Aine s young attorney I definitely felt some spark with them.
