Can't Buy Me Love

It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . .

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Rachel works as a waitress in order to get some money and one of her regulars wants her to babysit his dog. That particular regular happens to be a resident in the same building as the one Tag lives in (and owns it). As you can see they were bound to meet.  They bond over plans for one of the hotels Tag is responsible for and the dog Rachel babysits. None of them wants a relationship when they decide to make their relationship status, something hotter than platonic, but as you know things change and one of them isn't willing to admit that.

If this was another novel, I might have found this situation a way to add more drama to the book even when it wasn't needed, but I feel like Tag had a solid reason for not wanting to do the whole 2.5 kids thing. Reese tries to make him see reason, but in the end, it's Tag the one who has to work out his problems. That was a good character development.

This book came after a period where I was trying to find the right book for me. Don't get me wrong, I liked enough books, but when I read TBBD I found it more enjoyable and I was more eager to read it than the others. Both, the hero and the heroine, are good characters and I enjoyed reading about them. I like a good heroine who can stand up for herself. And she is good at what he does. 

I liked the writing style and the pacing was good. What I loved the most though is the cover because even if it's not very obvious, the model has long hair, like Tag. I really like it when whoever is responsible for the cover tries to find a model or setting that represents what's inside of the book. The next book is coming on February 2017 which is not too far away. I can't wait to read Eli's story after seeing what he went through in this book.

I would recommend this book because it is a light read, with good pacing, a little humor and it was a good way to spend my Saturday afternoon.
