Working her way
up to general manger of a high-end hotel ensure Holly
Mitchell was one of the best in the business but also placed
a target on her back from her rival Tristen Reese. Tristen,
the GM for her boss’ brother’s hotel has been one step ahead
of Holly for the past two years. Stolen accounts, mix-ups
and mishaps are only some of the ways Reese has caused chaos
in her life.
Now her job is
on the line, the brothers have decided to retire and the top
two candidates for the management of both companies are
Tristen and herself. There is no way she will allow a
scheming vulture take the position she’s earned.
prodding from close friends Holly decides to enjoy a fantasy
vacation before the competition for her ultimate job goes
into full swing. A weekend spent in Paris living out her
wildest dreams of a rogue lover calling the shots in the
bedroom until she’s weak from pleasure.
An adventure in
Paris turns into a chance meeting that just may prove to
Holly there are more important things in life, like a
debonair man with warm eyes who’s blessed beyond her wildest
When you take
two wildly competitive people with a competitive drive and
throw in the ultimate job opportunity, nothing but fireworks
is to be expected. Bite Me takes on a comedic
style from first chapter. With an easily riled heroine and a
cool, calm and collected French man what I initially thought
would be a basic romance took a turn for the extreme.
Chuckles, laughter and a few heated blushes were just a
couple of my reactions to a story that turned out to be
pretty interesting. Tristen I found to be intriguing whose
value rose as his feelings for Holly grew. The only major
flaw that stood out in the way this story was written was a
scene where Tristen and Holly and talking and Adrienne
Bishop garbled her words to resemble a person with a stuff
nose. I really do believe readers are able to imagine what
the person sounds like without the dialect being written in
a way that’s not appropriate. Outside of this slight quirk I
really enjoyed Bite Me and am interested in
seeing Adrienne Bishop comes up with next.
