Blog Tour/Review ♥ Unlikely Allies by CC Koen ♥ #giveaway

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: June 13, 2015


What happens when a single mom’s four-year-old daughter falls in love with Mr. Right and she doesn’t?

Maggie Tyson’s rule: no bad boys. Her incarcerated ex-husband broke her of that attraction. Needing to escape his threats and the scrutiny of the people in her hometown, Maggie relocates to New York City. Determined to not make the same mistakes, she has a mile-long list of dos and don’ts. Unfortunately, her daughter, Cecily, doesn’t like to follow them. When Cecily wanders away from her and right into Rick Stone’s office, Maggie knows he’s the exact type she’s been trying to avoid. Can she resist him or will she succumb to his willful charm?

Rick Stone’s rule: bed them don’t wed them. Running a multi-billion dollar business doesn’t leave him with much time to do anything else, particularly with an overbearing grandfather breathing down his neck. But when a man works hard, he needs to play even harder. Voted America’s most eligible bachelor, Rick doesn’t have any problems getting women into his bed—except one.
Two auburn beauties stumble into his life.
One will break his heart.
The other—heal it.
Will he love or leave them?


***3.5 Stars***

I think my favorite character in this book had to be CeCe...she definitely stole the show for me. Now Maggie on the other hand did start to get on my nerves with constantly turning down Rick but keeping him around.

I understand Maggie's reluctance in not wanting to get into a relationship after the type she had before, but to me it felt like she was keeping him on a string to appease herself.

All in all, I enjoyed this story and it would be a perfect beach read!
