Lexie - Kimberly Dean Title: Lexie

Series: Triple X bk 1

Author: Kimberly Dean

Genre: Contemporary

Lexie Underhill works her tail off in hopes of winning her adoptive father’s approval. It’s never enough. The stinging proof? He’s brought in a reorganization expert. As if the prospect of losing her job in the family business isn’t enough, Cameron Rowe’s sexy, intimidating presence makes her palms sweat.

When Lexie’s face appears on a scandalous freeway billboard, her protestations of innocence go unheard. With orders to save the family name—or else—she marches into the bar the billboard was advertising and comes face-to-face with an identical twin sister. Roxie is wild and free, everything Lexie isn’t. Before the night is out, she welcomes the chance to explore her own sensuality.

As she dances wantonly on the bar, suddenly Cam is there, kissing her as if he has the right. The sizzle between them breaks out in four-alarm desire, but Lexie has recalibrated her life plan. And the equation doesn’t factor in Cam—until she’s sure where his loyalties lie. With her…or her father’s company.

Warning: Not all business relationships are formal and stodgy. Suits and ties (actually, all clothing) are optional

This is the first book of Kimberly's I've read and I have to say that as soon as I was finished I immediately went to her website and looked up her books.

I have to admit that this story hit close to home for me as I'm an adoptive mom but I would never ever do what Lexie's parents did in how they treated her.

The sparks between Cam and Lexie are hot enough to light your kindle on fire and keep you tuned in to the story to see how it pans out.

As Lexie and Roxie search to discover why they were separated and Lexie deals with her family she discovers that the one person she never thought she could lean on was the one person she could. Cam.

Cam is an enigma for most of the story as he keeps everything very close. The only thing we can see for sure is that he wants Lexie and he will do anything for Lexie.

Roxie is a serious trip. While she looks just like Lexie, she is nothing like her, and the sparks fly when she meets Lexie's family. I can't wait to see what happens in her book.

As soon as the story was done I wanted more of it as it leaves off with a major cliffhanger.

Grade B+
