Start Me Up – Maggie Riley

He’s arrogant, sexy and aloof. And now I have to write his book. 

Jack Willis is every bit the start-up prodigy—seriously smart, inventive, and totally sexy. With his incredible mind, extraordinary body, and a bank account with more zeroes than you can count, he would give the sharks from Shark Tank a run for their money. Everyone from Wall Street investors to drooling house wives wants a piece of him. Everyone except Libby Hanson, that is.

Libby Hanson is a crafty, curvy bombshell, more accustomed to macrame and crochet than fine dining and stealth engineering. She reads, she writes, she drinks wine with her cat…and she’s never even heard of Jack Willis until she lands an interview that will change her life forever.

Jack needs a book written—and fast. His sexy new car is about to be released on the market, and a New York Times bestselling book would be the perfect marketing push to get his business to the next level. He could have any writer he wants: but he wants Libby. She’s feisty, gorgeous, and has a way with words like nobody else.

To write his book, Libby has to see everything he does. She gets thrust into a brand new world of A-list red carpet events, meetings with executives, and long nights in the workshop that grow increasingly intimate. But to write a bestseller, Libby needs more. Their connection is off the charts, but she’ll need to discover the real Jack—the man behind the inventions, the man who’s steadily stealing her heart. Jack has secrets—lots of them—and Libby will do anything to get the scoop. With Jack’s true nature coming to the surface, Libby finds herself torn—will she expose the man everyone is dying to get the dirt on? Or will she protect the man she is slowly but surely falling for?

I would like to thank givemebooks promotions for sending me an earc of this book it is very much appreciated! This is posting on the release day and all the links should be in a different post which will either be below this or above this! Depending on when this is actually uploaded haha!

I really loved this book at the moment I’ve really been getting into adult books and this was no disappointment it’s a very slow burner in terms of leading up to the relationship but I really liked that and it matched the novel and the characters in the novel. It worked well with them.

This book is dual point of view.

Libby’s character she has to be one of my favourite characters the way she thinks and the way she talks it really is relatable and it made me smile especially in the beginning when she goes for the job interview when she meets her future boss she is talking to herself about knitting so it’s really relatable in that sense of talking to yourself. I did find myself relating to Libby and she was just someone I could relate to and she was a brilliant character.

Jack was very mysterious and it totally drew me in I wanted to know more and why he was so guarded and the way we learnt about him was amazing and I really enjoyed that aspect and how we learned what Libby learned when writing the book.

The plot was amazing I really liked the fact that it was to ghostwrite a book and the ending is just perfect. I fell in love with this book it made me smile it did actually make me cry at one point. The writing is also beautiful and it made me fall in love with it, such a beautiful book!
