REVIEW: Lauren by Leigh James


Synopsis:

Two Headstrong, Driven CEOs. One Undeniable, Scorching Attraction.

Being a scientist gives Lauren Taylor a purpose in life. At twenty-five, she's the CEO of a billion-dollar biomedical company, Paragon Laboratories. On the brink of a major discovery, Lauren lets nothing interfere with her work. Until she meets Gabriel Betts, the gorgeous and brilliant CEO of another Silicon Valley startup, and is forced to face her inconvenient and overwhelming attraction to him.

Billionaire Gabriel Betts is a successful scientist in his own right. He's made his way in the world by being an early adapter and never losing focus. Captivated by Lauren's brilliance and unselfconscious beauty, he's determined to win the reclusive female CEO over at any cost.

But what neither Gabe nor Lauren are prepared for is the white-collar danger that's lurking in Silicon Valley... The danger that threatens not only their companies, but their very existence.

MY REVIEW

4 out of 5 stars

Lauren, the first Silicon Valley Billionaires book, was a pretty good suspenseful romance! Lauren was a wonderful heroine. She could be a bit stubborn and dense at times, but she was still a very powerful and independent women and I admired her character a lot. And Gabe was a total alpha male, which I loved a lot. He came on a bit strong at times and was overprotective, but it never got to the point that he was unlikable. Leigh James balanced his personality really well and I found him to the be perfect love interest for Lauren because they were the only people who could really take each other on. The plot of this book was just as great as the characters. The situation that Lauren found herself in was quite thrilling and exciting and it wasn't obvious how things were going to turn out, so I really enjoyed going along for the ride with Lauren and Gabe as they figured stuff out. All in all, this was a nice read. It's only the first book I have read by Leigh James, but I'm eager to read more from her in the future.
