Review: The Billionaire's Wake-Up-Call Girl by Annika Martin (Billionaires of Manhattan #2)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR.

After the fabulousness of Most Eligible Billionaire, I dove straight into the second Billionaires of Manhattan series, and once again, Annika Martin brought the heat, the heart, and a whole lot of ha-has with The Billionaire's Wake-Up-Call Girl. This can be read as a complete standalone--although Henry Locke and Victoria Lawson do make a number of cameo appearances here--but I'm going to go ahead and encourage you to check out that first book because it's a hoot to read while also managing to tug at my heartstrings with Henry, Vicky, and Smuckers's story.

Book two is about Elizabeth Cooper, Vossameer Inc.'s newest social manager. Sure, she's more adept at baking cookies, but winning awards in cooking up ways to market her beloved bakery, Cookie Madness, online was nothing to sneeze at either. Lizzie doesn't have plans of staying past a month anyway; that's how long she needs to stick around in order to receive her sign-on bonus. However, sticking around begins to get difficult once she meets Theo Drummond, the grouchy genius behind Vossameer, and more so once she secretly becomes Operator Seven.

I'm trying really hard to not give away too much of the story because this is the sort of book that pays off more when you're experiencing the hilarity that is Lizzie and Theo's tale. He's the kind of man who knows nothing about nuance. He's all about results and more used to facts, figures, and formulae than feelings and emotions. So, he isn't quite sure how to deal with someone like Lizzie, but he's even more intrigued by the dirty-mouthed operator from the wake-up call service that doesn't care one little bit if she's putting him in place and doing so with a smirk.

While this book didn't have a millionaire pooch, Lizzie and Theo had more than enough deliciously hot phone conversations to make up for it. I loved their chemistry and I appreciated that the author didn't make this into an over-simplified matter of Theo trying to figure out that Operator Seven is actually Lizzie. In short, there's more going on here than you'd think and all the better for readers like me who look for more in our romance novels. This series is quickly becoming one of my very favorite finds this year! The Billionaire's Wake-Up-Call Girl gets five stars. ♥
