Acquisition Acquisition by Chelle Bliss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An out of this world enemies to lovers story, I loved it, and need Merger NOW!!!

I want it all. I want her. I want Interstellar. I want everything. I’m the type of man who’s used to getting it too.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book in one sitting but that’s exactly what happened with Acquisition. Having had the book sitting on my e-reader for weeks, I am now kicking myself for not reading it sooner. I love stories which swing from enemies to lovers and whilst they are indirect enemies, as rival CEO’s, Antonio and Lauren’s story was breathtaking.

He flirted. I blushed. He smiled. I swooned.

Bringing me into an unknown world of the aerospace industry was a refreshing change and something which fascinated me in its own right. As mentioned, the key protagonists are each CEOs of their rival firms which set the story up for an interesting set of problems as each falls for the other but with a takeover on the cards, life for Antonio and Lauren was never going to be easy.

I’m only her enemy inside the boardroom, not in the bedroom.

From their initial meeting, where they each pretended to be someone else, I knew I was going to fall as hard for each of these characters as they did each other. Antonio was your usual powerful businessman but this time his character wasn’t overpowered by his ego. Lauren, equally as powerful in and out of the boardroom, knows that she will do anything to save her company from Antonio’s clutches and whilst not trusting him, she finds it hard to forget their one night together.

The kiss. The touch. The smell. The sounds. The taste. Everything in this moment is about Antonio and me, with a dash of Elizabeth and Lou.

With bodies ruling minds though, both Antonio and Lauren struggle with their feelings for one another. Antonio is determined to win Lauren’s heart but with her father’s memories ruling her mind, she is not prepared to lie down in front of this man again.

One minute I hate him, and the next I’m falling for the man. None of it is fair either. There’s no way we could have a future.

Lauren’s work life gets as problematic as her love life when her ex, and head of research and development, starts to cause ripples for her and it soon becomes clear that he still holds a torch for her but will their working relationship win out and can Lauren keep him as a friend and a colleague before things turn nasty?

So, from boardroom to bedroom, with some sea, sand and sex thrown in as well, I was treated to a captivating story and one which will has left me crying out for the sequel, Merger, which fortunately releases very soon.
