**ARC received for honest Review**

Vanessa runs the family business “Randall’s Whipped Cream Cakes,” on the outside she may seem the consummate professional but in reality she is rapidly unravelling. She feels totally out of control of her life and she doesn’t like it. With her grandfather’s ailing health and her sisters ongoing battle with Leukaemia and also add into the mix that she is a single mum of a three year old, her stress levels are at an all-time high. To top it all off she has financial problems, medical bills are expensive so Vanessa needs to find a quick fix and soon before their home and livelihood come crashing down right around their ears.

Vanessa and her sister enter a reality TV show, in the UK it is called “Dragon’s Den” but in this book it is called “Eye of The Tiger.” You have to go in front of a panel of wealthy individuals who are business owners themselves and pitch your company in the vain attempt of getting them to invest. Vanessa needed the investment to expand so that they could increase their revenue and in turn aid their ailing finances. Vanessa and her sister get accepted onto the show, but when it comes to their pitch Vanessa freezes, she recognises one of the “Tigers” and it is none other than her “Favorite Mistake,” a one night stand that she had in Vegas four years earlier, one that she ran out on in the early hours of the morning…after all, that is what one night stands are all about, right?

Alex has never ever gotten over the one night stand that ran out on him in the wee hours of the morning. She has haunted him for years and now he cannot believe that she is standing right in front of him. She is still just as intriguing as she was back then, so Alex does what he needs to do to keep her in his sights…he invests and this is where the story really kicks off.

There is no denying their attraction but Vanessa has secrets and once these secrets come out, you just know that it will not bode well. Alex was such a charming character, you couldn’t help but like him and he proves to everyone that he is a changed man. Maybe it is Vanessa or maybe he has just grown up a bit. These two have great chemistry, I could guess where the story was going and I was correct but that didn’t affect my enjoyment at all. This was a cute romantic read that leaves you with the warm and fuzzies once you have finished.
