I came across Evan Asher on Twitter, where his teasers about The Profiteer piqued my interest and I here I am sharing my views after reading the book.
Kelly lived in Cedar Grove, a very small closed community where she ran her own shop. Curtis has been her boyfriend for six years, since she met him when she was seventeen. Curtis ran his own business too and when they received news that Crawford Hudson, a very rich and well known business man was planning to build a factory in their well preserved community, panic set in about the residents' welfare. Curtis became very anxious and worried that the small businesses, including his will be lost to the Hudsons.
Crawford's son Luke, who himself didn't have such a good reputation came to evaluate the viability of setting up business in Cedar Grove. He was attracted to Kelly from the first time he set eyes on her and so was Kelly, only she didn't know who he was as he didn't look and dress like the typical high powered business man but he had the looks that most girls dream about.
From then on, the twists and turns made for compulsive reading. Curtis for one was not who Kelly had always thought he was. If anything, he was totally the opposite. Luke and Kelly gave in to their attraction for each other, knowing that it would be only a temporary fling, until they discovered that their feelings ran deeper than they thought but neither of them would admit to their true feelings. Their time together was full of love and passion but Kelly didn't believe that Luke would settle with someone like her and Luke liked to keep his freedom. Will they overcome these barriers?
This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster and I would recommend this beautiful romantic story to those who like to read a good romance. I will definitely look out for other books by this author.
About the Author in
Though I haven't ruled out writing in other genres someday, it seems the romance genre is the one that calls to me right now.
Like most, I have a day job. But my free time finds me huddled over a keyboard as I put my ideas into writing.
After encouragement from friends and family, I decided to begin publishing my work. I hope you will enjoy my books!
I'm naturally a private person, so it's not easy to do the promo required, but I'm trying! Thank you for visiting my page here on Goodreads.
